Not just a headache, a Migraine attack can be a debilitating event characterised by symptoms such as nausea, sensitivity to light and/or sound, heightened sense of smell, vomiting and vision impairment or an aura that occurs at the onset. Each sufferer has different symptoms so diagnosis is often gained through discussing patient history and analysis of symptoms.

Chiropractors often see migraine sufferers as a preventative measure or condition management rather than an attempt to cure the condition. Treatment can include specific adjustments made to the neck and upper back, tissue massage and stretching and regular treatments can prevent the onset of an attack.
