Chiropractic adjustments provide one of the most effective interventions for people suffering with migraine headaches. The limitations to current pharmacological therapies highlight the need to explore alternative or integrative care for headaches. Research published in 2019, in the journal Headache, revealed the effectiveness of Chiropractic care for those suffering from migraines. Chiropractic adjustments deliver a significant effect that lowers the pain/intensity of migraines and the number of days migraine sufferers cope with pain.
The purpose of Chiropractic involves gently adjusting misaligned or immobile vertebra with the intention to improve nervous system communication from the brain to the body. The postural position and movement of the spine intimately connects to the health of the central nervous system. An altered spinal segment causes interference which impacts overall health. Poor vertebral position traces back to several traumatic origins ranging from physical injury to the stresses of life. One potential outcome can manifest as imbalanced stress hormones which produce migraine headaches.
Chiropractors specifically evaluate the alignment and mobility of the spine to ensure proper communication between the brain and the body. Other interventions known to support the influence of a Chiropractic adjustment in helping migraine sufferers include spinal stabilisation exercises, deep breathing techniques, soft tissue massage, stretching, nutrition, and ergonomic modifications.
Many people suffering from migraines believe that medication provides the only form of pain relief. Meanwhile, pharmaceutical pain and migraine medications represent some of the most dangerous drugs on the market due to their toxicity, potency, and potential for addiction and harm. The pain associated with migraines need not be exacerbated by the side effects of an intended treatment. Medicinal side effects from medications intended to treat the pain often complicate the healing process and rarely ever address the source of the pain or provide long term resolution. Chiropractic provides a drug-free approach to addressing migraine suffering. Nervous system care offers a critical solution that pursues the permanent resolution of migraine headaches. Surprisingly to many, a lot of medical evidence supports the concept that pain relief begins with ensuring optimal nervous system function. Before experiencing another episode or ingesting another drug, every migraine sufferer deserves the hope of Chiropractic.
