Migraine Treatment In Louisville
Do frequent migraines affect your ability to live your life? Rather than try another migraine medication, try chiropractic adjustments to reduce the intensity and the frequency of your migraines.
Symptoms & Causes of Migraines
Migraines have a range of symptoms. Many people experience sensitivity to light, smells, and noise. Some become irritable or fatigued. Many feel intense pressure in different parts of the head, and some migraine sufferers have vision disturbances.
All of these symptoms add up to prevent migraine sufferers from going about their work or caring for their family.
Migraines often seem to arise out of nowhere, and can cause hours if not days of suffering. Conventional treatment for migraines focuses on different medications to hide pain and reduce symptoms. Chiropractic treatment for migraines offers a drug-free alternative that will decrease the pain associated with migraines and the frequency of headaches.
Factors that trigger a migraine include stress, hormonal changes, sleep disturbances, consuming excess alcohol, eating artificial sweeteners, and taking oral contraception. Other factors that affect migraine development include weather, genetics, and brain chemistry.
How Chiropractic Treats Migraines
Our Louisville chiropractor takes a natural approach to treating migraines. We take a health history and ask about your symptoms, to try to connect the bigger picture. Based on known migraine causes, we may suggest certain foods to avoid or lifestyle changes to make to limit the amount of migraines you experience.
Chiropractic adjustments alleviate tension in the neck muscles, a common migraine trigger. As we relax the neck muscles and move the spine back to its natural alignment, you may experience fewer headaches.
Bringing alignment back into your spine has a positive effect on the nervous system, which controls brain-body communication. As we attune the nervous system through treatments, your body can work out patterns that trigger migraines to reduce headache frequency. While it usually takes many treatments to reduce migraines, patients start feeling better right away.
