Migraine headaches affect billions of people around the world. Most of the people suffering from migraines are incapable of functioning normally and are unable to work when they experience an attack. Migraines are far worse than a typical headache an average person might experience, crippling the person experiencing them. They come with a variety of other debilitating symptoms.
Migraine attacks can be disabling and painful. These episodes are usually quite difficult to stop once the symptoms begin. The best way to treat a migraine attack is to prevent them from happening. While there are a variety of treatments available, chiropractic care is one of the most popular means of enabling people to lead migraine-free lives.
While a severe headache is one of the main symptoms of a migraine, it is not the only one. There are other symptoms including:
- Blurred vision
- Hypersensitivity to touch, smell and taste
- Lightheadedness or fainting
- Pain on the sides of the head
- Reduced motor function
- Sensitivity to light
- Throbbing or pulsing pain
Medical experts are not sure of the precise causes of migraines however there is research that shows that specific triggers can lead to an attack. These triggers include certain foods, beverages, hormonal changes, food additives, stress, sleep issues, medications, weather changes, exertions, and jet lag.
Treatments for migraines are either preventative or abortive. Preventative therapies include medications that can be taken on a daily basis to lower the number and severity of attacks. These medications are available as a prescription and generally come with side effects. Abortive treatments work on the symptoms and provide relief from pain. These medications are taken after an attack has started to stop it.
Migraine specialists can recommend prescriptions and treatment options such as massage therapy, acupuncture, and chiropractic care. Studies have shown that chiropractic treatments can noticeably relieve pain and prevent future migraine attacks.
Chiropractors use several techniques to treat migraines. One of the most common treatments is spinal manipulation with a focus on the cervical spine. When chiropractic treatment balances the body, it can relieve the suffering associated with migraines and prevent future attacks from happening. Chiropractors may also advise that patients take an herbal, mineral or vitamin supplement and make some lifestyle changes to eliminate any migraine triggers. One benefit to Chiropractic care as migraine treatment is there are no side effects.
