Chiropractic Adjustments for Migraine Headaches
For many people, chiropractic adjustments offer a drug-free way to relieve migraine pain and get on with their normal routine.
It's normal to want to cover up the pain caused by migraines with medication, but you're only giving yourself a temporary reprieve. As soon as the medication wears off, the pain will return, and you're right back where you started. You also open up the possibility of creating a dangerous cycle that's hard to break.
At our chiropractor provides manual adjustments that can help ease the pain caused by migraines, so you can think straight and feel like yourself.
By manipulating the spine and different joints in the body, we can help correct misalignments and relieve pressure on nerves and tissues that may be contributing to your pain. Our chiropractic adjustments also increase blood flow, which is another factor that may help reduce your pain and discomfort.
Chiropractic adjustments also offer benefits that include improved sleep quality, greater range of motion and mobility, and a greater sense of well-being. All of these factors are important when it comes to the length and severity of migraine headaches.
Spinal Decompression for Headaches
Spinal decompression is another treatment we offer that can help relieve pain caused by migraines and chronic headaches.
Using a specialized traction table, we will gently stretch your spine, which increases the space between your disks, improves blood flow, and helps deliver valuable nutrients to the affected area.
We can use spinal decompression for migraine relief on its own or as a complementary treatment to our chiropractic adjustments.
Symptoms and Causes of Migraines
Migraines tend to affect different people in different ways. For some, they come on suddenly like an attack, while others may notice a migraine slowly building over a few hours or even days. There are four specific stages to migraines, but not everyone experiences each stage.
The stages are prodrome, aura, attack, and postdrome. If left untreated, the attack phase of a migraine may last up to 72 hours. It's not always possible to predict when a migraine may surface.
Some common causes include:
- Bright lights or other sensory stimuli
- Changes in your sleep patterns
- Weather changes
- Hormonal changes in women
- Certain medications
- Certain foods or food additives
