Migraine Relief Experts in Fort Lauderdale
Migraines are debilitating. They often show up at the worst possible time, causing sensitivity to light, sound and other outside stimuli. Instead of treating them the same old way again, why not try something new? Chiropractic care considers the whole person, not just the symptoms. Chiropractors can offer a whole plan of treatment, ranging from hands-on treatments to other holistic methods. Here’s a look at how a specialized care plan can help to relieve the pain.
How Can I Stop Getting Migraines?
While there is no proven way to get rid of migraines and be done with them once and for all, there are ways to help manage & treat them. At Chiropractic Works we specialize in helping you treat and reduce the frequency of the migraines. Using time tested techniques we can help you manage and find some relief by:
- Correcting the Misalignment
The spinal column houses the central nervous system. If the column is slightly out of alignment, it can cause inflammation, chemical imbalances, and debilitating pain. By taking the time to understand the root cause of the issues, your chiropractor can create the best possible treatment plan to relieve your migraine headaches.
Your chiropractor will check for subluxations or spinal discs that are out of alignment. By making spinal manipulation adjustments, they can move the subluxation discs back into place, relieving the pressure and the irritation on the spinal cord. Sometimes this is all it takes. The spinal cord is a direct line to the brain, so any inflammation or irritation is all it takes to cause a rather large problem. Subluxations can also cause other underlying symptoms including migraines, dizziness, tingling, and reduced blood flow.
- Treat With No Medications
Chiropractic work is all done without the use of painkillers. Migraine medications only mask the symptoms; they don’t treat the underlying cause. Medications can also be dangerous and addictive. The side effects can cause other problems – some even worse than the pain. Instead of masking the symptoms, let your chiropractor get to the bottom of your pain with treatment.
- Maintenance Care
Migraines come and go, depending on a lot of factors. Just because you are not experiencing symptoms at the moment does not mean the cause is gone for good. Routine care is important for those suffering from migraines. If the spinal column were to become misaligned again, you will be right back where you started. Most people assume that once the pain is gone, they are out of the woods. But this is not usually the case. Talk with your practitioner about the options and the suggested time between appointments.
- Lifestyle Choices
Some lifestyle choices may be adding to your migraine pain. It is important to take a look at the condition as a whole to find out what is really causing the problem. Exercise and dietary habits have a huge impact on migraines. Your chiropractor can suggest some important adjustments, leading to a healthier person and less pain. We can provide help with proper nutrition or set up an exercise plan to help relieve stress. By treating the overall condition of your body, all the pieces of the puzzle will fall into place.
By treating the whole person, chiropractors can alleviate symptoms much faster than just masking symptoms with medication. If you suffer from migraines, let us help you with a personalized plan for treatment. Our team will perform an evaluation and help get you on the road to relief.
