Migraines are a debilitating health condition that is estimated to affect as much as 38 million people in the United States. They can put you out of action for days at a time, and the symptoms of migraines include:
- severe headaches
- eye pain
It can feel like never-ending torture.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help With Migraines?
But did you know that chiropractic care can help if you are suffering from migraines? Here’s why you should make an appointment with a chiropractor if migraines have been dragging you down.
What Chiropractors Do
A chiropractor is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions of the spine and joints – treatments usually involve manipulation of these joints, muscles and vertebrae to treat a range of symptoms and disorders including migraines and chronic pain.
Chiropractors are also in a position to refer if they spot any other conditions or symptoms that could warrant medical attention.
How do you know that you’re suffering from a migraine instead of a regular headache? Anyone who has ever suffered from a migraine will tell you that you’ll know the difference. Just in case you don’t, migraines often come with associated symptoms such as eye pain, vision distortion, nausea and vomiting – sometimes chest and lower back pain, too.
Migraines can sometimes be triggered by dietary factors, sometimes by stress. Headaches and migraines are also often caused by pressure in the neck, shoulders or spine – which is where your chiropractor comes in handy.
Picking a Chiropractor
If you’ve experienced trouble with migraines and found that nothing else has helped, it could be time to make an appointment with a chiropractor. You shouldn’t just choose the first one that pops up in your search results: Do your research to find the health practitioner that suits you and your individual needs best, and choose one that you feel most comfortable with – even if that means you have to drive a few towns over for an appointment.
