A migraine headache can be a crippling condition to go through. People suffering from migraines often find it hard to focus and concentrate due to the severe pain within their heads. The main symptom is a throbbing headache that seems to occur within a specific part of the head. The patient can experience secondary symptoms like nausea and vomiting. Some patients also experience high sensitivity to visual and audio stimuli. The onset of a migraine attack is usually characterized by a heightened sensitivity to light and numbness in the limbs. Unlike a common headache, migraine symptoms last for hours and even days and usually require medical intervention to treat.
Most people assume that a migraine is a normal headache and try out home treatment methods like non prescription pain relievers. This treatment method might work short term by relieving the migraine symptoms. However, the drugs won’t treat the underlying problem. The migraines will recur. In most cases, symptoms will be more severe and non responsive to painkillers. The underlying condition might become harder to treat and control.
At ABC Chiropractic, we always treat migraines caused by neck pain through chiropractic care. Our chiropractors will apply various techniques to tackle not only migraine symptoms, but also the underlying conditions causing the migraine.
One of the major causes of migraines and headaches stems from the spine. Being the main pathway of nerves, problems in the spine will result in deferred pain in other body areas including the head. Conditions such as misalignment of spinal discs can exert immense pressure on the nerves that travel through the spine. This can cause pain in the affected area and damage to the spinal discs. Migraines are a common symptom of spinal disc misalignment. Through chiropractic treatment, we are able to realign the spinal column relieving pressure on the nerves and eventually treating the migraine.
If you have been having constant headaches, avoid self treatment at all costs. Short term headache relief might mask the underlying problem and thus allowing it to grow bigger. Don’t let your migraine become worse and hard to control. Contact ABC Chiropractic today and get migraine treatment through chiropractic therapy. Our trained chiropractors will first identify the underlying cause of the migraines and then create a working treatment plan to get your life back on track.
