Calgary Headaches

Are you suffering from Headaches and Migraines in Calgary?

If you have ever experienced a migraine or a headache, you know that they are serious business. Migraines and headaches are something that affects a great number of people in Calgary – especially due to our Chinooks and rapidly up and down weather.

So, if you’re not sure if you have had a migraine before, then chances are you probably never had one. Migraine pain can be extremely painful, and for many patients, it leaves them unable to function. The traditional medical establishment relies on medication to treat migraines in most cases, but for many patients, that’s simply not enough. At National Spine Care, we know it is important to find the source of what’s causing the migraine.

  • Depression
  • Irritation
  • Light intolerance
  • Intolerance to loud noises
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

These are some of the many symptoms that can occur before a headache or migraine starts.
