Why You Need To Consult A Chiropractor For Migraine

Why You Need To Consult A Chiropractor For Migraine

Millions of Americans, including thousands of Tampa residents, suffer from recurring migraines. A migraine is more than just a strong headache. The intense, consistent, and throbbing pain inside your head, together with nausea and vomiting, can drain your energy and increase the stress on your body.  Acute pain can last anywhere from several hours to several days. As a result, migraines have significant, disruptive impacts on your life. Low performance at work and school, irritability, or changes to your daily routine are more likely to happen as the symptoms worsen.

 

At present, there is no known cure for migraine. Medications are prescribed to alleviate pain and manage symptoms rather than treating the underlying causes. When medication doesn’t work, many people opt for alternative treatments like chiropractic.

At Palm Wellness Center, professional chiropractors are ready to help you with the diagnosis, treatment, and management of your migraine.

Chiropractic Care For Migraine

Migraine is caused by underlying factors that need to be treated first to help improve your condition. Neck pain is one of the reasons why headaches often occur. This includes muscle strain, stiffness, and other neck-related injuries. Back pain from bad posture may also contribute to the possibility of chronic headaches. 

Spinal manipulation or adjustment is the chiropractor's approach to align the function of your bones, nerves, and muscles. Any misalignment of these may trigger migraines; thus chiropractic treatment is highly recommended for migraine as well as most neuromuscular disorders. 

Chiropractors are not only limited to spine adjustments but also perform other treatments and procedures like ultrasound therapy, therapeutic exercises, dietary management, massage therapy, patient education and many more. It is best to consult a chiropractor experienced in the treatment of migraines. 

The Process

Consult A Chiropractor

Schedule an appointment with a chiropractor and discuss when and how the pain started. Also include all the symptoms you have been experiencing since day one. During the consultation, you also need to disclose your medical history and previous treatments (if there are any) to help the chiropractor understand your situation and come up with the right diagnosis and treatment. 

The Treatment Plan

Based on the examination and diagnosis, your chiropractor will recommend the best treatment and management for your migraine. They will recommend and perform any or a combination of the following:

  • Chiropractic Adjustments
  • Ultrasound Therapy
  • Therapeutic Exercises
  • Dietary Management
  • Heat or Cold Therapy
  • Electrical Stimulation Therapy
  • Cold Laser Therapy
  • Massage Therapy
  • Traction
  • Patient Education

Chiropractic treatments are performed to restore the body to normal health, preventing and relieving the causes of pain. Hence, it doesn’t only target the affected areas but the entire body, improving your overall wellbeing as well as your specific symptoms.
