Can Chiropractic Help with Migraines?

You know the triggers of migraines, we aren’t here to talk to you about those. Avoid bright lights, certain foods, get your eyes checked, don’t eat chocolate, dim the lights….you know the deal! This leads to the question, what can you do to help alleviate your migraines?

There are a ton of options out there for people who suffer with migraines. You can start with the basics like taking advil or ibuprofen. Sometimes that can help but often it will be temporary relief with no long-term effect. Imitrex is another medication that is used and prescribed for the sole purpose of helping people with migraines or cluster headaches. This again is something that is just a band-aid for the actual problem and is usually really expensive.

Other options that you may have heard of are detoxes, colonics, supplementation, and acupuncture. These options are definitely better than the ones listed above as they are striving to provide resolution compared to covering the symptoms up. These are all good things to check out as they have shown to help people.


But can Chiropractic help with Migraines?

That is a great question and is probably one of the reasons you are here. Chiropractic can definitely help with migraines and it is something that we help people get resolution from on a daily basis at The Specific Chiropractic Centers – Lake Country. A lot of people who suffer from migraines have a nervous system issue going on and don’t even know it. The nervous system is vital in making sure the body works how it’s supposed to and is key in managing migraines. We use a piece of technology called Computerized Infrared Thermography, which tells us how the nervous system is functioning. If we see that the nervous system isn’t working how it’s supposed to we make a very specific adjustment. This brings the nervous system back to its normal function which often times leads to people getting resolution from their migraines. Patients will note a decrease in migraine severity, decrease in number of migraines experienced, and a decrease in overall time they are affected by a migraine if they get one over the course of the first 12 visits. It’s always a great feeling when we help someone escape the migraines that have been holding them back for months and years. It is always our goal to partner with people and get them back to doing the things they love to do.
