Migraines tell you that something is wrong. Hormonal changes, loud noises, strong smells, eye strain, certain foods, and improper diet all can be a trigger. Muscle tension and spinal misalignment can also have a huge impact on your migraines.
How Chiropractic Care can Help Your Migraines
Do you feel intense, weakening headaches, along with debilitating nausea and dizziness? You may be suffering from more than just a headache. Generally, migraines are headaches with more intense pain, involving nausea, sensitivity to light, sound and even to certain smells. This head pain can also come along with other symptoms such as eye pain, dizziness, and vomiting. While medication helps relieve the pain, these drugs just provide short-lived healing while covering up the issue that is triggering it. These drugs can cause harmful side effects on your liver and kidney. When stress causes your migraines, you may feel that there’s nothing you can do but lie down, control the symptoms and endure the pain until it ends. According to studies, spinal adjustments can result in instant pain relief and provide longer-lasting relief with no side-effects.
What Should I Expect from a Chiropractor?
Your chiropractor will look for any dislocations, restriction in your muscle and joint movement, and constraints in blood flow and nerves. According to the assessment, a chiropractor will perform an adjustment to your spine and your neck. Your chiropractor will develop a treatment plan in order to help manage and ease your migraines.
Will I Find Relief?
Chiropractic adjustments are not only great for reducing the severity of your migraines but can also reduce their frequency as well. While some people find instant relief from a chiropractic adjustment, it may not be an instant remedy for everyone. Chiropractic adjustments will focus on the cause of your headaches. Most migraines are triggered by an imbalance, misalignment or a dislocation in the spine. When your vertebrae are misaligned, it can cause your muscles and nerves to be inflamed. An adjustment will fix the misalignment ultimately helping to relieve your migraine. Speak with your chiropractor about your lifestyle choices, they may be able to help you adopt healthier habits that can change your health and relieve your headaches.
