Understanding Migraines

While research has uncovered more clues as to the physiology of migraines, this condition isn’t well understood. In general, migraines are thought to be believed to be caused by abnormal brain activity involving chemicals, blood vessels and nerve signals in the brain. Managing the pain often lies in preventing the migraine altogether, which is why improving your overall health is essential.

Maximum Health Clinic provides a range of services to promote better wellbeing in your day-to-day life which, in turn, may reduce your migraine days. A few possible migraine triggers include:

  • Stress. One of the most notorious migraine triggers is stress. It’s not always possible to remove stressors from your life, so focus on managing your stress a little each day. Chiropractic has profound benefits for those with stressful lifestyles. Many patients report lower stress levels following a chiropractic adjustment, and over time, you may notice a reduction in your overall anxiety.
  • Diet. Certain foods can trigger migraines, most commonly those high in sugar, caffeine, salt and monosodium glutamate. Nutritional counseling can help individuals trying to find which foods trigger their headaches. Paired with chiropractic care, you’ll set forth to a life with fewer migraines.
  • Poor Sleep. Another common migraine trigger is inadequate sleep. Our bodies rely on sleep for regeneration and growth, and even one night of missed sleep can have significant effects on our health. If you toss and turn all night, a chiropractic adjustment may improve your sleep quality.
  • Neck or Shoulder Tension. Often, headaches are a result of tense muscles in the neck and shoulders. Stiffness in those regions may resonate to the head and affect the pain signals. Chiropractic is effective at relieving tension in the neck and shoulders, which can lower your risk of migraines as well.

How a Chiropractor Can Help

Some studies show that chiropractic can reduce the number of migraine days. At Each appointment, patients have the opportunity to discuss their current health with a knowledgeable chiropractor. We regularly help clients who experience headaches and migraines, and we can help you find an individualized treatment plan that works for your specific health needs. Chiropractic has a high success rate at reducing migraine pain because there are several adjustments that can reduce stress and strain on your body. We can also provide advice on nutritional choices and create a plan that omits dietary triggers.
