How a Chiropractor can Help Migraine Headache Victims

A migraine headache can come during the worst time possible. It could happen will visiting family members, preparing for a holiday meal or even when you’re out enjoying a vacation. Unfortunately, the intense pain felt from these kinds of headaches can practically paralyze you for days. They can last from as little as a few hours to as long as a few days. 

 

There have been studies that show 76% of women and 57% of men experience at least one major migraine headache each month! To counteract the pain, we are told to take over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen, Tylenol or Aleve. However, these meds commonly have side effects and eventually cause more damage to the body over time. So what can you do to ease the pain?

How Chiropractors Ease the Pain of Migraine Headache Victims

A migraine headache is commonly linked to nerve irritation. Muscle tension found at the base of the neck plays a contributing part to these headaches. In many cases, a misalignment of the spinal vertebrae in the neck can place pressure on the spinal nerves.

When you visit a chiropractor for treatment of migraines, the first thing checked is a history of how the headaches originated. A chiropractor can help remove the pressure on the nerve and reduce tension in neck muscles to minimize nerve pressure. With continued adjustments, the vertebrae can be retrained to hold a healthy position and help the body heal itself.
