Migraines

Did you know that chiropractic care can help with the symptoms and frequency of migraines? While the exact causes of migraines are unknown, chiropractic care, including instrument and manual adjustments as well as lifestyle changes have been known to non- invasively help with symptoms and reduce an individual’s reliance on powerful prescription and OTC medications.

Understanding Migraines

Migraines are characterized by severe head pain that is often described as being throbbing or pulsing. Individuals may also experience nausea, light and sound sensitivity and blurry vision. Individuals who get 15 or more migraines a month are classified as having chronic migraines

Migraine Causes

While there are no definitive causes of migraines, there are a few factors that may determine how likely you are to suffer from a migraine. The primary cause is genetics or family history. If your parents, grandparents or siblings suffer from migraines, you are more likely to develop migraines. Additional factors include:

  • A history of injuries to your head and neck, like whiplash and concussions
  • Sudden hormone changes, especially during pregnancy and during and after menopause.
  • Your overall health history
