When I was younger, I suffered a lot from migraines. It was so bad one day that I felt as if someone had hit me in the back of the head with a 2×4 and knocked me out. You have to understand, my little girls were 6 months and 1 1/2. I was out from 9 in the morning til 10 that night. When I came to, one of the first questions on my mind, is what time is it?

After the flurry of medical professionals, I went to see a Chiropractor who showed on x-ray why I was having the migraines. He fixed that and a whole list of [I thought this was what old age felt like]at the age of 25. I have not suffered from migraines but do know the signs of when one is coming on and go to a Chiropractor immediately.
I was so impressed with what Chiropractic did for me, I became one. Come see for yourself what Chiropractic can do for you.
These chronic migraines are not “pop 2 aspirin and call me in the morning” headaches…… Chronic Migraines That’s me, that’s what I suffer with.
