Struggling with Headaches or Migraines?
Migraines and headaches affect far too many people. If you're not sure if you have had a migraine or not, then chances are you probably haven't. The pain has been described as mind numbing, and leaves many sufferers unable to function. Traditional medical science relies on medication for this issue in most cases, but for many patients that is not the long term solution. In these cases, it's important to find the source of what’s causing the problem.
There are many symptoms that can occur before a headache or migraine starts. Hallucinations, depression or irritation are just some of the symptoms that patients often report before and during a migraine. Migraine sufferers will usually try to avoid light and loud noises and experience nausea and vomiting, among other symptoms.
Chiropractic Care for Migraines?
Chiropractors know and understand how the nervous systems can impact and influence the body, and have been providing relief from headaches and migraines for more than 100 years. Most people do not realize that a chiropractor could help with this type of symptom, but it has been shown that chiropractic care is effective at helping people with both headaches and migraines.
If the spine moves out of position, it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. This pressure can result in many problems, among them headaches and migraines, but when the spine is correctly adjusted and pressure is removed from the nervous system, it can reduce or even prevent the occurrence of migraine headaches.
How are Headaches Treated?
The kind of treatment for headaches you need will depend on what is causing the problem. Your chiropractor and their team will work diligently to find the source of your headaches and provide advice on how best to treat it. Each year millions of dollars are spent treating headaches with aspirin and other drugs. While this may help in some cases, it only treats the symptoms, not the source of the problem. With a little time and effort, a chiropractor will be able to find the source of the problem, and offer advice on how to deal with it, which can help you prevent the need for headache medications.
