Migraine Relief Treatment
A migraine headache is usually the result of a throbbing blood vessel. Chiropractic care involves manual manipulations of your body adjust the alignment of your bones, joints, and body tissues, improving the way your skeletal, muscular, nervous, and circulatory systems function. Many of our patients notice a significant reduction in migraine pain symptoms following chiropractic adjustments.
The chiropractor may also offer massage, strengthening and stretching practices, as well as special exercises you can do at home to alleviate tension and discomfort in your neck and spine.
Physical therapy is increasingly being used as an all-natural alternative to traditional migraine relief treatments. Migraines affect your central nervous system, involving the nerves and blood vessels. Physical therapy involves functional movements of your muscles and joints, which help to reduce the neurologic symptoms associated with a migraine headache. Addressing your posture, alignment, and strength issues will help reduce migraine triggers.
Our physical therapist can help you restore mobility in your cervical spine joints, as well as correct muscle imbalances, poor posture, and physical activities that contribute to the frequency and intensity of severe migraine headaches.
