Chiropractic Care for Migraines

One common thing we see in our office is headaches or migraines. Migraines are “a condition marked by recurring moderate to severe headache with throbbing pain that usually lasts from four hours to three days, typically begins on one side of the head but may spread to both sides, is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light or sound, and is sometimes preceded by an aura and is often followed by fatigue.

According to 100% Chiropractic, 39 million people in the U.S. suffer from migraines. Due to the side effects that accompany severe headaches and migraines, the people who get them often cannot work or complete daily tasks.

Here’s the good news: chiropractic care has been proven to aid in helping reduce migraines. We see this all the time here at The Wellness Path.

But how does it work? Chiropractic care affects the spine, thus affecting how the rest of the body works. Spinal adjustments help realign the spine, allowing nerves to work properly. It also helps reduce stress in the back and neck muscles.

Migraine Treatment Centers of America describes, “A systematic review of 21 different studies found that patients who received chiropractic care for migraines once or twice a week for eight weeks saw a reduction in migraine symptoms. The primary outcomes that were improved by chiropractic care were migraine frequency, intensity, duration and quality of life.”

Migraines have a variety of causes but a common cause for women is their monthly cycle. Hormonal migraines are often a side effect of menstrual cycles. These hormonal changes combined with daily stress can cause severe migraines for women on their period or while they are pregnant. Luckily for you, chiropractic also helps with hormonal balance and hormonal migraines!
