Migraines

Migraine is a genetic neurological disease, characterized by episodes called Migraine attacks. They are quite different from regular headaches which are non-migrainous. About 100 million people suffer from headaches in the U.S. And 37 million of these people suffer migraines. The World Health Organization estimates that 18 percent of women and 7 percent of men in the U.S. suffer from migraines. Migraines are called primary headaches because the pain is not caused by a disorder or disease i.e. a brain tumor or head injury. Some cause pain only on the right side or left side of the head. While others result in pain everywhere. Migraine sufferers can have moderate or severe pain but usually can’t participate in regular activities because of the pain. When a migraine strikes, a quiet dark room may help with the symptoms. Migraines can last for four hours or can last for days. The range of time someone is affected by an attack is actually longer than the migraine itself. This is because there is a pre-monitory, or build-up, and then a post-drome that can last for one to two days.

The Real Reason Behind Pain: How The Spine Is Connected To Internal Organs!

The Real Reason Behind Pain: How The Spine Is Connected To Internal Organs!

El Paso, TX. Chiropractor Dr. Alex Jimenez investigates pain, the spine and its connection to internal organs.
Right after I had my first son, I suffered from headaches and some digestive issues. I had never had digestive issues before, but I passed it off as a side effect of giving birth to a living being. I also blamed the pressures of being in school and raising a small child.

My husband went to a chiropractor to treat some pain in his hands, and that is when I decided to try it as well. The chiropractor re-aligned my spine and, with weekly visits, I was feeling much better.

When my family and I moved to South Korea, I could not find a chiropractor. I did, however, find an excellent acupuncturist that had his office two blocks away from my front door. Instead of working on my spine, the acupuncturist worked on the muscles around my spine.
