Migraine Headaches & Chiropractic Care

head pain

Among the common health issues, migraine headaches stand out as one of the most frustrating ailments that people face today. High level of stress seems to always cause migraines and come not only with debilitating and severe head pain but intense sensitivity to light and sound, nausea and dizziness as well.

While you may try hard to endure the pain of a migraine, it seems they only thing you can do is to wait until it’s over and undertake a robust management of symptoms to the best of your knowledge and ability.

But there’s good news for anyone suffering from migraines. At Backsmart Health Chiropractic, Cumming, GA, Chiropractor Dr. Gregory King leads a team of highly qualified chiropractors who can provide chiropractic care to help reduce the severity and frequency of the migraines, meaning less time cooped in bed and more time living your life.

Different studies reveal that over 25 million people living in the US experience migraine headaches each year. Most studies also have also discovered that they’re genetic. Women are far more likely to experience migraines than men. Individuals with a migraine will experience their first headache before the age of 30.

Migraines usually come with a tight feeling around the temples and in the neck, also referred to as tension headaches. In fact, most migraines begin in the neck. According to a study carried out by Duke University, spinal adjustments, or manipulation can cause instant headache improvement and offer long-lasting relief and minimal side effects than the standard prescribed headache medication.

Studies have also revealed that subluxation or a small misalignment in the spine causes most migraines. If your vertebrae are misaligned, it can cause the muscles and nerve to become inflamed and irritated. A chiropractor at Backsmart Health Chiropractic in Cumming, GA, can fix this misalignment by adjusting your vertebrae to its right position and the soreness, pain, irritation, and stiffness will disappear.

Chiropractic adjustments can not only help to reduce the severity of migraines, but regular chiropractic care can also assist to lower the frequency of these migraines. Most people don’t realize that poor posture can cause migraines.

If you spend the entire day on your computer screen, tablet or phone, you put intense strain on your back muscles and neck that can increase the chances of getting a migraine or subluxations.

Remember that our Cumming Chiropractor Dr. Gregory King can also explain to you about various lifestyle choices which may be contributing to your migraines. Several studies have revealed that some foods, poor habits and lack of exercise can increase an individual’s chances of experiencing a migraine and triggers these headaches as well.

Common triggers include depression, anxiety, and stress, or migraines may indicate a more severe health issue.
