Migraines are headaches that come frequently. People who are susceptible to migraines tend to experience an intense episode at least once or twice each month. However, some people may suffer migraines for many consecutive days over multiple months. These frequent and intense migraines, referred to as chronic migraine, can make living an ordinary life difficult.

Roughly 30 Million Americans experience migraines. Additionally, the majority who experience these migraines are women. Pain killers are sometimes not enough because migraines are incredibly intense.

Can a Chiropractor Help With Migraines?

Preston Chiropractic and Acupuncture spinal manipulationYes, we can help. Chiropractic care is a simple yet highly effective method to cure migraines. We offer spinal manipulation as a solution. The neck region of the spinal cord is adjusted so that it becomes perfectly aligned with the vertebrae. This alignment relaxes the muscles and relieves your migraines. 

If you are experiencing migraines, you should see us at Preston Chiropractic & Acupuncture. Studies show that over 72% of people who experience migraines and who received chiropractic treatment saw a substantial decrease in pain. We will make an in-depth assessment before deciding on your treatment plan. We then will give you the necessary adjustments to reduce your migraines.

How To Avoid Migraine Triggers

Also, to maximize the benefit of our adjustment services, here are some tips you can follow to avoid migraine triggers.

  • Limit your caffeine intake.
  • Keep a headache diary.
  • Do meditation or another relaxation technique to reduce stress.
  • Monitor the foods you eat when you get a headache, and avoid those.
  • Hydrate yourself so that you can keep up your energy. Dehydration can trigger migraines.

At The Preston Family Chiropractic, we take your migraines very seriously. Your quality of life is essential to us, and we will help identify the triggers.

How Often Should You See Your Chiropractor For Migraines?

Each patient we see is different. When you come on an initial visit, we tailor a treatment plan based on your needs. During each session, we will monitor how your body responds to your treatment. We may adjust your treatment plan along the way or recommend additional sessions to enhance your current results.

Although many patients report immediate relief after their initial visit, Chiropractic care requires a long-term commitment to producing long-term results.

What is Better for Migraines: A Chiropractor or Acupuncture?

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture stems back from Ancient China. According to Chinese practices, there are over 14 meridians in the body. If these meridians are disturbed, pain or illness can occur. When we do acupuncture for migraines, we insert skinny needles throughout different parts of your face. Many patients experience immediate relief.

When you come to us, we can include a combination of chiropractic adjustments and acupuncture for your migraines.

The first visit is crucial since it assists us in identifying the best treatment option. Reach out today to schedule your initial consultation.
