How Chiropractic Can Help With Migraines

At Kilian Chiropractic, our chiropractor for migraines understands just how debilitating headaches and migraines can be to your everyday life—especially if you suffer from them frequently. Your quality of life may suffer, as may your overall health and wellness. What many people don’t realize, however, is that holistic chiropractic treatments can be effective in helping you find relief from headaches and migraines. In our office, we offer a unique, individualized approach to treatment that focuses on helping you find not just short-term relief, but long-term wellness.

Understanding Common Causes of Headaches and Migraines

To understand how chiropractic care can help, it’s important to first understand some of the main causes of headaches and migraines. Typically, people who suffer from persistent migraines have “triggers” that must first occur, such as neck pain, back pain, or even environmental factors like bright and sunny weather. Everybody’s triggers are unique, though stress and anxiety are among the most common. These emotional triggers can actually cause the brain to release chemicals that will ultimately lead to a headache or a migraine.

Usually, a migraine is characterized by visual auras, flashes of light, or other changes in vision in addition to severe pain. If you experience headaches or migraines that impact your daily life, one of the best decisions you can make is to schedule a consultation with our chiropractor.

Benefits of Chiropractic Migraine Treatment

Our chiropractor for headaches and migraines is here to provide you with the holistic, drug-free, and non-invasive chiropractic migraine treatment you need to find relief. We’ll begin by determining what your “triggers” are in terms of what tends to cause your headaches and/or migraines. From there, we can work on a customized plan for treating those triggers at their source. What we often find in our office is that triggers like muscle tension, poor posture, and improper alignment of the spine can contribute greatly to the presence of migraines and/or headaches in a patient. 

Fortunately, our chiropractic team is able to effectively treat and manage these triggers without the need for invasive procedures, risky prescription medications, or other dangerous techniques. Through the use of tried-and-true chiropractic methods like spinal adjustment, spinal decompression, and massage therapy, we’re able to provide you with the best in treatment. And with your triggers under control, you may find that you experience less frequent headaches and/or migraines and that any you do experience are less severe. The key is to combine chiropractic care with any necessary changes in diet, exercise, posture, and other aspects of your life to ensure the best possible results.
