Do You Suffer From Migraines?

Migraines can be DEBILITATING!
Many people think migraines are just a simple headache, but they’re actually not. According to MayoClinic.org, migraines “can cause intense throbbing or a pulsing sensation in one area of the head.”

They’re usually followed by side effects such as:
  • Severe pain that lasts for hours or even days

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Dizziness

  • Extreme light, sound and motion sensitivity

Like we said, they aren’t your regular headaches. Most people depend on the use of pharmaceuticals to help keep migraines under control, but these meds can also come with their very own side effects.

Fortunately, there is an alternative remedy – chiropractic. In a 2012 study, it was found that there was a 68% reduction in a migraine’s intensity when chiropractic adjustments and massages were administered to individuals. Gentle massaging, stretching and chiropractic adjustments of the neck and upper back, were given to 10 male migraine sufferers who partook in the study. After an hour, they were asked about the pain reduction. On a scale of 1 to 10, the average rating was 5 and after the treatment, the rating dropped to 0.5. Oh, yes, they didn’t experience any side effects from medications either.

A chiropractor can not only offer you migraine relief through chiropractic adjustments but also through consultations on eliminating headache triggers, proper nutrition and exercise.

Just another benefit of chiropractic care! People, who are suffering can find comfort and improvement through the use of chiropractic treatment. Make use of this new information. Get treated today!
