Find Migraine Relief in Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic treatment for migraines is slowly gaining acceptance. Research has shown that some people with migraines can benefit from chiropractic techniques, and you could be one of them. Migraines can be debilitating, and even when they're mild they can make it harder to function. Chiropractic adjustments offer a noninvasive treatment to lessen the pain and provide migraine relief. Chiropractor Justin Stilson at Activated Life Chiropractic & Wellness in Great Falls will work with you to decide which treatments will be best for you.
What's Going on With Migraines
A "migraine" is sort of a catch-all term for several types of severe headaches. Some of these are known by other names, such as cluster headaches, with a migraine typically referring to the intense headache that occurs along with sensitivity to light and other stimuli. The cause of a migraine isn't always known. Sometimes it's related to brain chemical changes or other neurological issues, and there does seem to be a genetic component.
However, migraine triggers can be another matter. Even if you don't know the cause of your migraine, you likely have a good idea of what can trigger one. Hormonal changes, foods, stress, many lifestyle factors such as sleep deprivation, and other issues can bring on a migraine in one form or another.
When you know the trigger and can avoid it, the migraine becomes a non-issue. But if you can't avoid triggers, or if you haven't been able to figure out all of your triggers, then you need help. A chiropractor can provide migraine relief with treatment to help control the pain or even the onset of the migraine itself.
If you've never tried this type of treatment for your migraines, you might want to take a chance. If nothing else, the adjustments can help you relax and release tension, which often reduces the stress that can be a trigger for some people. This tension can also lead to its own type of headache that, when added to the pain of a migraine, could adversely affect you for hours or days. By relaxing and avoiding that tension, you may feel a lot better just from doing that.
