Treat Yourself by Treating Migraine
If you’re one of the millions of people who suffer from migraines, you know how debilitating they can be. Frequent headaches, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound can make it difficult, sometimes impossible, to work, play, and even sleep. Conventional treatments such as medication can provide relief, but they often come with side effects and may not address the underlying cause of the migraines.
Chiropractic care is a natural and effective alternative treatment option for those suffering from migraines.
Chiropractors are trained to identify and address the root cause of neuromuscular disorders, including migraines, through a combination of manual adjustments, exercises, therapies, nutrition, and lifestyle modifications.
Research has shown that chiropractic care can be an effective treatment option for migraines. In fact, a study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that spinal manipulative therapy (a type of chiropractic care) was more effective than medication in reducing the frequency and severity of migraines.
Chiropractic care doesn’t just benefit adults, another study published in the Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics in 2017, that looked at the use of chiropractic care in the treatment of pediatric migraines, the results were statistically significant improvement in the number of headache days and headache intensity for those who received chiropractic care.
Here are some of the benefits of chiropractic care for migraines:
Relief from headache pain
Chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate tension in the muscles and joints of the head, neck, and upper back, which can be a major contributor to migraines.
Improved function of the nervous system
Chiropractic care can help correct misalignments in the spine, which can interfere with the proper functioning of the nervous system.
Increased range of motion in the neck
Migraines are often caused by tension, stiffness, and muscle spasms in the neck, which can be improved with chiropractic care.
Reduced muscle tension and stress
Stress is a common trigger for migraines, and chiropractic care can help reduce muscle tension and promote relaxation.
