If you have a long history of recurring migraines and an even longer history of helpless doctor visits, you might be thinking that migraines are a lifestyle that you’re forced to accept as normal or a purely untreatable pain. Sure, there’s all sorts of medications you can take to take the edge off, but they never fully alleviate the pain. Such pain doesn’t have to be your new normal because we at Advanced Chiropractic Center do have a better solution for treating migraines. Here’s what you need to know.
- Chiropractic care can relieve the nerves: One of the main causes of migraines is often irritated nerve endings that fire pain alarms up to your brain. Chiropractic treatment for your spine can calm and relieve the pain from those irritated nerves and send signals to your brain to alleviate some of the pain.
- Massage therapy can release muscle tension and increase circulation: Another cause of migraines can also be overly tense muscles or poor circulation to your brain that can cause painful inflammation. A massage can unknot those muscles and increase circulation to further reduce the pain in your head.
- Lifestyle changes can leave a lasting impact: You don’t really need a specialist for this last bit of migraine treatment: changing your lifestyle. We can discuss with you changes in your diet, exercise, possible supplements, and relaxation techniques that can help ward off future migraines.
It’s important to keep in mind that none of these are perfect cures for migraines, but they are helpful treatments that can often fully alleviate the pain to help you return to a normal life. You can give us a call if you would like to learn more about our migraine treatments and solutions.
