If You Suffer from Chronic Migraines, Chiropractic Care Could Be the Solution

Did you know that migraines are the third most common illness in the world? In the United States alone, 12% of the total population suffers from chronic migraines. Oftentimes, migraines leave you completely debilitated and unable to participate in your normal life. 

Thankfully there is a solution. Research has shown that chiropractic care, including spinal manipulation, can treat and improve both tension headaches and headaches that originate in your neck. 

At Complete Wellness, Rochelle Davis, DC, and her team are dedicated to providing you with the best options for pain relief and wellness, and that’s why they’ve compiled this helpful guide to how chiropractic care can help you take back control of your life from chronic migraines. 

What are migraines?

Migraines are severe, chronic headaches that cause throbbing pain, often on one side of your head. They leave you debilitated and unable to function in your normal daily activities. The exact cause of migraines is still unknown, but it’s believed that they’re related to genetics as well as changes in your brain. 

There are certain triggers that can bring on or exacerbate a migraine headache, including:

Migraines are often accompanied by sensitivity to light, nausea, and vomiting, and they can last for days. You may also experience other symptoms with migraines, such as dizziness, sensitivity to temperature, gastrointestinal problems, and fever. Migraines may also affect your vision with blind spots, blurry vision, bright flashing lights, and even temporary vision loss.     

Treating your migraines with chiropractic care

Chiropractic care can provide you with some much-needed relief from the pain that comes with migraine headaches. With spinal manipulation and adjustments to your neck, which is a common source of migraine headaches, Dr. Davis can help you to both improve your spinal function and relieve the stress on your system that often leads to migraines.

We can also take a look at your diet and lifestyle to see if there are any simple changes that you can make to help reduce the onset of migraines and the severity of your symptoms. We may even recommend taking B complex vitamins and other supplements. 

Dr. Davis offers advice on posture and how to reduce the stress on your back and neck that could be caused by sitting or standing for long hours at work. We may also recommend relaxation methods and certain exercises that may help as well.
