Could chiropractic care finally get your migraines under control?
There is never a good time to have a migraine, but if you suffer from recurring migraines then you may be having trouble getting through the workday. While some people may find relief through prescription medications or dietary changes, many people turn to our Elko, NV, chiropractors, Dr. Wade Taylor and Dr. Shannon McKinney, to tackle their migraines through safe, drug-free, therapeutic approaches.
We Treat Neuromuscular Disorders
Most people assume that chiropractors are only able to address injuries or conditions that impact the musculoskeletal system, but we’re quick to correct people and let them know that we deal with the entire neuromusculoskeletal system. This means, that your Elko, NV, chiropractors can provide an effective migraine treatment based on the symptoms you are experiencing.
One of the most effective ways in which we treat migraines is through spinal manipulation. You may not realize this but misalignments in the spine could actually irritate nerves that direct blood to the head. As you might imagine, when these nerves are irritated it triggers a migraine.
By realigning the spine through hands-on manipulation, we can also improve nerve function and prevent migraines from occurring in the first place. We have helped countless patients reduce the number and the severity of their migraine headaches. In fact, studies have even shown the effectiveness of treating migraines this way. One study reported that regular chiropractic treatment reduced the number of migraines by half.
Chiropractic Care Provides a Range of Benefits
If you suffer from migraines, chiropractic care has a lot of advantages. For one, it may lessen your dependence on painkillers and prescription medication. If you suffer regularly from migraines, you may be looking for a solution that actually targets the underlying cause of your migraines rather than just numbing the pain. Through regular spinal manipulation, we can:
- Improve the functionality of the nervous system
- Reduce muscle tension, which can also be responsible for migraines
- Reduce nerve irritation
- Boost blood flow to promote healing of irritated or strained tissue
- Stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes
We can also identify possible migraine triggers in your life and provide you with modifications and ways to avoid these triggers.
