Visiting a chiropractor for migraines is an excellent idea for anyone who has been suffering from terrible headaches, tension in their back, neck and shoulders, or debilitating migraines. This treatment is a safe, noninvasive and non-addictive way to both treat and prevent this type of pain.
How does a chiropractor help people with migraines?
Most people think about taking medication or even visiting a neurologist if they suffer from migraines. Doing so can help, but without visiting a chiropractor, it may not address the root cause of the problem. Very often, migraines are caused by what is happening with the spine. If one of the vertebrae is out of alignment, it can create undue pressure, even pinch one of the nerves and cause migraines as a result. Moving the spine back into alignment can be the best way to eliminate these migraines and begin feeling better.
Chiropractors focus on spinal health. Therefore, a chiropractor is the best person to visit to ensure that all the vertebrae in the spine are in the correct alignment. In our office, we align the spine using spinal manipulation and touch therapy. This gentle way to address the spine is over in a matter of seconds and does not have any side effects. Once the spine is back in alignment, patients begin to feel better and pain is reduced.
Benefits of visiting a chiropractor for migraines
There are many benefits to visiting a chiropractor, including the following:
1. The treatment is effective
When it comes to results, visiting a chiropractor can have near immediate results and begin to reduce inflammation, pain and swelling right away. Patients may need to visit on a regular basis to prevent migraines from recurring, but this depends on the individual patient and what has caused the spine to go out of alignment.
2. Treatment is safe
This is a nonsurgical, noninvasive way to treat migraines and back problems. Because it is entirely noninvasive, it is safe, and patients do not need to worry about potential risk factors like they would with more invasive procedures.
3. The treatment is non-addictive
Since chiropractors do not prescribe prescription medication, there are no concerns over patients becoming addicted as there are with taking more heavy pain medications for migraine pain.
4. Treatment is affordable
Visiting a chiropractor is very affordable, especially when compared with more invasive treatment options. Some insurance companies may even pay for the visit.
5. The treatment is safe for people of all ages
Children, adults and the elderly can all benefit from chiropractic care. It is safe regardless of age because it is noninvasive.
Who should visit a chiropractor for migraines?
We encourage anyone who is suffering from migraine pain to visit our office for help. We can provide treatment after conducting an initial examination and asking questions about the pain and a patient's lifestyle to aid in determining what is causing the pain in the first place. When it comes to migraines, getting to the root cause of the pain is critical for providing patients with long-term relief. This understanding guides our approach and enables us to produce long-term healing, rather than simply numbing the pain.
