Migraines & Chronic Headaches in West Des Moines | Vero Health Center

45 million Americans complain about headaches. That’s one in every six people.

This doesn’t have to be you!

June is Migraine Awareness Month and at Vero Health Center in West Des Moines, we feel this is the perfect time to explain the many effective ways chiropractic care can help relieve migraine pain. First, let’s learn a little more about migraines and what potentially causes them.

The Difference Between Migraines and Headaches.

If you have migraines, then you know that a migraine is so much more than "just" a headache. A migraine headache is a headache that is so intense; it interferes with normal daily activities. It can sometimes cause nausea or vomiting, and it gets worse when you are exposed to noise, light and some smells. Sometimes, migraines are also associated with auras, which include seeing spots, waves or flashes of light right before the migraine starts. Living with chronic headaches impacts your entire well-being, from physical to emotional limitations. While medication can help in the short-term, it will not help address the root cause of your headaches.

How To Treat Chronic Headaches and Migraines

What most people don’t realize is the fact that headaches and migraines are often a symptom produced by your body as a way to signal a larger internal dysfunction. In other words, they are a red flag of a larger issue, which shouldn’t simply be masked or ignored!

As a neurologically-based chiropractor, treating headaches and migraines at the source is what we do. While a traditional chiropractor focuses on the muscles and bones, Vero Health Center takes a unique approach by addressing the nervous system, which controls every function in your body. By doing an in-depth analysis of your spine and nervous system, we can determine exactly where there is dysfunction and what miscommunications are taking place, causing your symptoms to even appear.

Our goal isn’t to provide you a temporary fix, but a long-term solution. At Vero Health Center, our job is to not only get you to your optimal level of health, but to keep you there - for life!
