My Migraine Experience with Chiropractic Care- Evita

My Migraine Experience with Chiropractic Care- Evita

For as long as I can remember, I often suffered from headaches. The sun, dust, bright lights, and almost any change in my sensory information were a trigger. Over time, I found it easy to determine and predict when my headaches would come on, and I had a handle on minimizing their impact.

My first migraine came as a shock in the summer of 2012. I was dedicated to living a healthier lifestyle, and had just completed a vigorous 45-minute high intensity workout. After a sip of water, I was scrolling on my phone, and suddenly, my vision changed. There were zig- zags, blurry spots, and bright lights disrupting my usually clear line of sight. It was bizarre and unusual, and my imagination began to race. I crawled into bed, hoping that sleep would be a remedy and that I would feel better in the morning. Unfortunately, the intense headache that followed not only disrupted my
sleep that night, but left me unable to eat, drink and move. 16 hours later, the migraine passed, but the temporary relief felt was short lived as a 3-day headache pursued.

Over the years, my migraines increased in intensity and duration, often disrupting my daily activities and even resulting in my taking time off work. After a few stints in the Emergency Room and being put on prescription medication, I reluctantly accepted that my migraines would be a permanent disruptor in my life.

In 2018, I started working at the Active Family Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. This Mississauga clinic’s motto is “Healthy Spine, Healthy Life." In essence, this phrase highlights that the continual maintenance of your spine through proper nutrition, hydration and chiropractic adjustments can lead to an overall healthier body and mind. Chiropractic care is unique as it not only addresses pain, but is preventative as well.

Our clinic’s motto resonated with me. After a thorough consultation and report with the doctor, I tentatively proceeded with the recommended course of treatment. 2 months passed quickly before I was aware I was no longer in pain. It came as a pleasant realization during our weekly office check-ins that I had not experienced a headache or migraine in months! For the first time in 6 years, I no longer ran from my triggers.

My migraine experience with the Active Family Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is not unique. As a member of the chiropractic team, I have been fortunate enough to share my migraine story, which has in-turn influenced prospective patients into coming in. I have enjoyed seeing positive improvements and hearing stories from patients whose migraines had previously interrupted their daily routine.

If you can relate to any part of my story, I would urge you to schedule a consultation. Your Mississauga Chiropractor is here for you throughout every step of your health journey.
