Migraines can be debilitating and medication doesn’t always work. Migraines can have a severe impact on the ability to enjoy life to the fullest. Though medications can help alleviate symptoms after they have occurred, there are very few preventative options. Chiropractic treatment has been proven to effectively manage and reduce the amount and severity of migraines.
A study in Australia found, “22% of participants reported more than a 90% reduction of migraines as a consequence of the 2 months of SMT.” The study found, “Statistically significant improvement in migraine frequency, duration, disability, and medication use when compared with the control group.”
Migraine causes and symptoms.
Though medical science still hasn’t established a concrete source of migraines, there are some suspected factors and causes:
- Stress – This is often cited by migraine sufferers as a major trigger. Taking steps to reduce stress may help.
- Genetics – Migraines have been genetically linked, and migraines often run in family lines.
- Triggers – Specific triggers can lead to migraines in different sufferers. These include alcohol, poor sleep, weather changes, and more.
Symptoms of a migraine: The onset of a migraine can be foreshadowed by a sensitivity to light, fuzzy eyesight, sensitivity to noises, and potentially vomiting. The only option for relief is often a darkened room, earplugs, and complete stillness. This can make unexpected migraines a major concern.
