I thought that I would have to live with my migraine headaches for the rest of my life. They didn’t start happening until I was in my 30s. I can still remember the first one that I had. It felt like nothing I can even describe, it was that painful. I tried several different things at first, but I was not able to find relief. That went on for many years, but it all changed when I was 45 years old. I ended up looking up San Francisco chiropractors for something totally unrelated to my headaches, but it turned out to be exactly what I needed.
I had been to a seminar prior to finding a chiropractor, and one of the speakers there told us a few stories about how chiropractic care has changed his life for the better. I knew that I could use more energy, so I decided to see if it was something that could help me too. When I got home from the seminar, I made an appointment for the following week. It was basically a wellness visit, but it changed my entire life because of one simple question the doctor asked me.
When he inquired about the headaches that I had put on the paperwork detailing my medical history, I explained that they had been occurring for about ten or so years, and that I was not able to find any relief for them. I told him that they start at the back of my neck and go up toward my head pretty fast after that. He ran some tests and looked at my neck, and he did an adjustment right then and there. I thought that it was for my wellness visit, but he told me that chiropractic care can help with migraine relief too. I went back and still continue to go to this day, because his words were true. I no longer have those migraines!
