Migraine headaches are often described as the most painful, and the most likely to be a recurring problem. They are often described as a throbbing or pounding pain that affects the whole head, or can be localised to either side. The pain experienced by migraine sufferers is often described as moderate to severe.
If you're experiencing any of the following symptoms, it may be time to seek chiropractic care for migraines:
- Sensitivity to light or sound
- Blurred vision
- Nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, or upset stomach
- Loss of appetite
- Visual auras
Migraines usually last anywhere from 4 hours to 3 days, and can be debilitating. They can have a long list of triggers such as drinking alcohol, periods of stress or anxiety, loud noises, certain foods or medications, high altitudes, and crying.
For those seeking natural remedies for migraines, chiropractic care has been proven to reduce the frequency of attacks and their intensity. Spinal manipulation has also been proven to offer natural migraine relief without the side effects of medications.
