Around 37 million individuals in the United States suffer from migraines according to the National Headache Foundation. Throbbing pain, dizziness, blurred vision, nausea, noise sensitivity, and light sensitivity are all associated with migraines. Some sufferers even experience sleepiness, neck pain, and a difficulty in thinking after the migraine is over. Unfortunately, there is no common cure for migraine sufferers, but there are options to help reduce the associated symptoms including chiropractic care.

How Does Chiropractic Care Help Migraines?

Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive way to treat migraines. With chiropractic, there is no risk of side effects from pain killers. Spinal adjustments or spinal manipulation, which involves making sure that the bones and disks along your spine are in alignment, is something that chiropractors specialize in. When bones or joints are misaligned, pain and irritation can result.

Chiropractic care for migraines focuses on ensuring that the vertebrae in your upper back and neck are in the correct alignment. As a result, tension in the upper back and neck is released, and in many cases the risk of developing migraines is reduced. Spinal adjustments are also known to relieve stress, which is one of the common triggers that can cause migraines.
