Cherry Hill Chiropractors May Relieve Migraines

chiropractic care for migraines

When a severe migraine headache takes hold, it’s almost as if the rest of the world ceases to exist. The intensity of the pain makes many people lie in a darkened room and do little else. Working or looking after children is out of the question. It’s not even possible to hold a thought for more than a few seconds without the vice-like grip of the migraine taking over.

When someone gets into this state, they will do just about anything to escape. Even the strongest pain medication with the most undesirable side effects is welcomed if it eases the pain. People who routinely refuse prescription medication often change their tune when in the grips of a bad migraine headache. Luckily, Cherry Hill chiropractors are able to provide relief for migraines without drugs or any invasive procedures.

Migraine Headaches

Many people tend to call any intense headache a migraine, but a true migraine sticks to some exact criteria. Typically, a migraine is less common than a tension headache, registering from moderate to severe on the pain intensity scale. It is a recurrent headache that lasts from between four hours to three days, and affects more females than males.

In order for someone to be considered a “migraine sufferer,” they must have at least five separate episodes that last for the prescribed time frames mentioned above. The headaches must also have at least two of the following characteristics: Pulsating pain, unilateral location, nausea or vomiting, visual or auditory sensitivity and aggravation of the headache by physical activity. Many migraine sufferers, roughly 20 percent, will see visual auras before a migraine headache comes on. This early warning system helps let them know what’s coming, but doesn’t lessen the intensity.

Chiropractic Treatment

If you seek migraine treatment from a Cherry Hill chiropractor, you’ll be given a full assessment and evaluation to determine exactly what is going on with your head and your spinal column. You may require x-rays or other tests to paint a complete the most complete picture possible, before any treatment begins.

Your chiropractor will likely perform spinal adjustments to relieve any pressure or stress that could be contributing to your migraine pain. Spinal adjustments can also improve blood flow and help reduce pain. If it’s been determined, you have nutritional triggers that are adding to your migraine intensity, your chiropractor may offer nutritional advice to remove those triggers. Advice on your posture and various relaxation techniques will also be part of the treatment plan.
