Can Dr. Cosmas Leigh, Chiropractor, Help with Migraines?
Migraines and headaches are serious and affect too many people in the Chapel Hill, Raleigh, and Durham areas. If you’re not sure if you have had a migraine or not, then chances are you probably have not had one. The pain can be excruciating and for many patients, it leaves them unable to function. Most patients need comprehensive care to conquer their headaches for good. that is where Dr. Cosmas Leigh comes in. It’s important to find the source of what’s causing the problem and then alleviate it.
At Leigh Brain & Spine, the doctors use state-of-the-art technology like qEEG Brain Mapping and Neurofeedback “Brain Training” in addition to Chiropractic care to solve your migraine pain with long-lasting results. This is how it works. First, you have a qEEG Brain Map performed that shows you, with your very eyes, how your brain is performing. migraines and chronic headaches are associated with a brain pattern that has been on “overdrive” for a long time. It is easy to see the pattern on your brain map. Dr. Leigh walks you through it and makes sure you understand. Then, you have a spinal assessment performed. If nerves in your neck are being blocked from flowing properly, the result is pain. this blockage of nerve signals can be caused by tense muscles that go along with the overdrive brain pattern. Many times it is all related. Dr. Leigh will show you how. After your evaluation results are discussed, then Chiropractic adjustment can be used to re-align your spine so the nerves flow freely and Neurofeedback “Brain Training” can be used to help your brain became relaxed and focused. When your brain comes down from the overdrive pattern, it is able to use proper, ideal processing speed and headaches and migraines go away. Thus, it is a simple 3 step process at Leigh Brain & Spine:
- Have your qEEG Brain Map performed to see how your brain can perform better to get rid of the pain.
- Evaluate if nerves are being blocked in your neck causing headaches and pain.
- Relax while the state-of-the-art treatments do all the work for you.
How are Migraines and Headaches Treated?
The kind of treatment for headaches you need will depend on what is causing the problem. Our team will work diligently to find the source of your headaches. The source of headaches can be coming from brain functioning or spinal misalignments. Once the source is found the solution is close at hand.
It has been shown that aligning the spine is highly effective at helping people with both headaches and migraines when spinal misalignment is the cause. If the spine moves out of position it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. This pressure can result in many problems, but it can also result in headaches. When the spine is aligned and pressure is removed from the nervous system, it can prevent migraine headaches from occurring.
Headaches and migraines can also occur due to dysregulation of the way that the brain is functioning. The brain is designed to use energy in a variety of ways to regulate a person’s state effectively. If the brain is dysregulated in that use of energy and is using it too high or too low migraines and headaches can result.
Don’t suffer from headaches and migraines. At Leigh Brain & Spine in Chapel Hill, Dr. Cosmas Leigh will help you understand the cause of your condition, and the treatment necessary to fix it.
