The Chiropractic Solution For Migraines

Posted on Apr 26, 2020


Do you, your family members and/or co-workers suffer from migraines? What are some natural ways to prevent migraine headaches?

Natural remedies for migraines might include acupressure/acupuncture, dietary changes, the use of essential oils, stress reduction/management, yoga/stretching, massage, and/or chiropractic care.

Most people think of chiropractors as doctors who deal with low back pain, but did you know chiropractors deal with all sorts of pain– all over the body? And there’s a chiropractic solution for migraines!

Chiropractic care involves spinal manipulation as well as massage and various exercises. Together, these things help with both the prevention of and management of headaches.

Your chiropractor could perform neuromuscular massage– this has a focus on “trigger points” within the back, shoulder, neck and head… and this massage can ease the symptoms of migraines. Your chiropractor could also take a multidisciplinary approach to help you deal with migraine pain. Typically, this involves physical therapy exercises as well as relaxation techniques and stress management tips. Furthermore, your chiropractor can offer dietary counseling, since certain foods or drinks could be contributing to the pain you feel in your head. Did you know, for example, that alcohol, caffeine and nitrates can all trigger migraines? That means things like soda pop, chocolates, hot dogs and cold cuts, etc. could be causing your problems.

Migraines cause a severe throbbing pain or pulsing sensation and can be accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Typically, they occur on one side of the head. Those with migraines often have a sensitivity to light and sound, so they’ll want to rest in a dark, quiet bedroom. Obviously, migraine attacks can interfere with a person’s daily activities.

If you’ve been experiencing tough migraines that seem to “knock you for a loop” and essentially ruin your day, you should make an appointment at Lakewoods Chiropractic in Forest Lake, MN.

By far the best chiropractor I’ve ever used. They customize a plan just for you and don’t use a one size fits all approach. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!! Thank you!!!

I have been experiencing low back pain for at least 10 rememberable years and decided on a whim to try chiropractic care at Lakewoods. I had never been to a chiropractor before so I had no expectations that it would work or not but after just my first adjustment I had instant relief for the first time in 10 years. I have since been super impressed with how everything has been explained to me and how my care plan has been formed. The staff are all very kind and have been very helpful as well!
