Can Chiropractic Care Provide Migraine Relief?

Anyone who has dealt with migraines knows that the onset can stop you in your tracks. A migraine often disrupts your life and renders you incapable of working or even engaging in your usual activities. You can’t choose when you get a migraine, so they can be inconvenient in addition to the suffering they bring. 

In many situations, migraines are brought on by environmental triggers, while other people have difficulty pinpointing the cause of their chronic migraines. In either situation, it is important to explore ways that can help relieve your pain and the stress of having your life repeatedly put on hold. Chiropractic care might be the answer for you.

What Causes Your Migraines?

Each person might have different reasons behind their migraine struggles, and it can be difficult to recognize your specific triggers. Some common causes include the following:

  • Elevated or constant stress
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Changes in female hormones
  • Dehydration
  • Unhealthy or irregular dietary habits
  • Taking sleep medications or other drugs
  • Irregular sleep habits
  • Changes in temperature, lighting, smells, noises, or other environmental factors

Some migraines mostly cause pain, though others can result in nausea, vomiting, dizziness, visual aura, fatigue, and extreme sensory sensitivity that requires you to stay lying in a dark room until the migraine passes. You do not have to simply live with these regular disruptions, as there are ways to prevent migraines for many people.

Holistic, Full-Body Treatment

Your physician might recommend a variety of medications – mostly to treat the symptoms of your migraines. However, it is possible to seek treatment that does not involve medication, and that aims to prevent migraines before they begin. 

Chiropractic treatment can be preventative for many migraine sufferers. First, we will schedule an initial consultation with you. We want to learn about your lifestyle and general health in addition to the frequency and intensity of your migraine pain. We want to identify the underlying causes of your migraines so we can directly address them and prevent future episodes. 

Chiropractic adjustments work to realign your spine, which can have many benefits, as can massage therapy. These can help:

  • Increase blood flow to the brain and head
  • Reduce tension in the neck and shoulders
  • Decrease overall tension throughout your body
  • Help with relaxation and general physical and mental health

Because anxiety and stress are common triggers of migraines, all of the above can help to reduce your episodes. We also work to educate patients on lifestyle changes, including exercise, diet, and sleep cycles, that can help to improve health and prevent migraines. While it might take a few appointments before you notice significant relief, having a dedicated holistic treatment plan can lead to reduced pain and fewer migraines in your life.
