How are Migraines Treated?

Migraine Treatment

Migraine pain results when blood vessels, head muscles, and surrounding nerves send pain signals to the brain. Why these pain signals activate migraine pain is not completely certain, however, studies have shown:

  • Migraines are a known hereditary medical condition
  • Excessive physical activity also brings on the onset of migraines

Migraines can be so intense as to bring on nausea, diminished eyesight, and sensitivity to light or noise. These throbbing headaches last from a few hours to a few days.

Chiropractic Migraine Treatment

  • Spinal manipulation has longer-lasting relief than commonly prescribed medications – even after treatment ceases
  • Spinal manipulation has no risk of drug addiction

According to manipulative and physiological therapeutics studies, after chiropractic treatment is stopped, patients continue to experience pain relief benefits for up to four weeks. On the other hand, studies report that patients who stop taking prescription drugs for migraine relief receive no continuing pain-free benefits.

Medical Massage Migraine Treatment

Medical massage is a systematic manual application of pressure and manipulation of soft body tissues: skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and the membrane surrounding muscle groups. The stimulation of the flow of blood and lymph through medical massage:

  • Relieves tension
  • Stimulates nerves
  • Relieves migraines

Acupuncture Migraine Treatment

The World Health Organization and the National Institutes for Health have found through studies of clinical experience that acupuncture is an effective treatment for relief from migraines.
