Chiropractors know that their treatments can help reduce and relieve migraines. The frequency, duration, and intensity of migraines, when treated with chiropractic adjustments, improve dramatically.
A migraine is a severe headache with severe throbbing pain and it can be so severe it is debilitating. Symptoms can last from an hour to days. People who get migraines often report an “aura” immediately before the headache. Auras can be flashes of light, face tingling, vision blind spots or even a specific smell. A stiff neck can also precede a migraine.
A tension headache differs from a migraine in that consists of pain behind the eyes, or in the neck or head. Tension headaches often result from neck strain or spine trauma and respond well to chiropractic treatment.
Chiropractic adjustments can minimize the intensity of, or even halt, a migraine when in the aura phase. If you suffer from chronic headaches, contact us for an adjustment to see relief and a reduction in migraine frequency.
