While migraines remain largely a mystery with regard to their exact cause, chiropractic care has shown to be a very effective migraine treatment. Migraines often originate from a series of individualized triggers that differ for each person, and once a migraine begins (usually a 24-36 hour cycle), it can be difficult to stop the symptoms or reduce the pain with traditional medical interventions.
Many individuals feel compelled to control their migraines with over-the-counter and prescription medications, but this isn’t the only option available. Regular chiropractic care can allow the body to rebalance itself, and most clients feel significant migraine relief as a result of their regular care.
Chiropractic care has a dual function in the treatment of headaches, both reducing tension and strain (which often serves as a contributing factor) and facilitating improved circulation and detoxification. In addition to addressing the nervous system, muscular system, and skeletal system, chiropractic care also boosts the function of the immune system, the circulatory system, and the respiratory system. The enhanced function of these symptoms often helps to provide immediate and long-lasting headache relief.
