Chiropractic Tallahassee: Drug-free Migraine Treatments

posted By Dr. Eric Pragle, DC, LMT

Do you or someone you know suffer from migraine headaches?  If so, your not the only one.  An estimated 12 percent of American people live with migraines at some point in their life.  Migraines can make it difficult to sleep at night or think clearly during the day.  Many people become hyper-sensitive to many different things from lights, sounds or even motion. 

5 Star Genbook Review

"When I first visited Dr. Pragle, I suffered from chronic migraines. I had around 15-20 headache days a month. I had heard that Dr. Pragle was good with migraines, but I didn't dare to hope that he would be able to almost completely eliminate them. I now only experience a migraine once a month. If I have two headaches in a month, I know it's time to go back to check my alignments. I highly recommend him if you need chiropractic work or a massage therapy. Dr. Pragle and Bryce are awesome!"
