A migraine is a type of headache — one of the most severe you can experience. Migraines are one of the most common nervous system disorders affecting Americans today.
Episodic migraines occur fewer than 15 days per month. Chronic migraines occur 15 or more days per month for three consecutive months. Migraines of either type can disrupt your life significantly.
Migraine headaches can vary with the person, but in general, they may cause:
You may have warning signs before a migraine, such as irritability, fatigue, concentration problems, and mood changes.
When migraines affect your routine, it’s time to get help. For example, have you missed work, canceled social activities, or changed your schedule because of migraine headaches? If so, the migraines are starting to control your life. Treatment is the best way to help you take the reins and prevent your migraine headaches from progressing.
At MyChiropractor, the team takes a holistic and integrative approach to migraine treatment. They focus on relieving pain and preventing migraines without medication.
Although most traditional doctors use medication as the first approach, it’s not usually a long-term solution. For example, pain medications only mask pain. They don’t make any changes within the nervous, muscular, or skeletal symptoms and don’t prevent migraines. So, pain medications are a bandage, not a cure.
MyChiropractor offers multiple methods of chiropractic care and physical therapy, such as:
Your treatment usually involves a combination of techniques and lifestyle changes like drinking lots of water, eating healthily, and exercising regularly. The team can also help you figure out your migraine triggers and avoid them.
While the cause of migraines can be unclear, headaches after traumatic accidents are another story. Let the team know if you’ve been in an auto accident or suffered a traumatic injury so they can tailor your treatment for rapid relief.
