Why You Shouldn't Ignore Your Migraines

If you suffer from chronic migraines, Dr. Wade Taylor and Dr. Shannon McKinney at Accelerated Medical in Elko, NV are committed to helping you achieve relief.

4 Reasons You Shouldn’t Ignore Your Migraines

Migraines impact up to 75% of the adult population. Just because a condition is common, though, doesn’t mean it’s natural or that it should be ignored. Dr. Taylor and Dr. McKinney at Accelerated Medical in Elko, NV shares four top reasons to seek care for your migraines.

They Are Intrusive

Migraines aren’t your typical headache. They are caused by a neurological issue and can make life miserable. Intense pain, sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, and other intolerable symptoms can make it difficult to do anything, including work, spending time with your family, driving your car, or even brushing your teeth. No one wants or should have to suffer through it.

Living On OTC Medications Is No Way to Live 

The first instinct with most forms of pain is to reach for OTC pain relievers. While these can be helpful at times, no one should have to rely on them constantly. In addition to the money you spend over time and the frustration of having to pop them in your mouth over and over again, prolonged use can have a negative impact on your health.

Additionally, regular painkillers don’t do much for migraines – if they provide any relief at all. This is because migraines aren’t like other types of headaches and require certain types of medication.

If you are against using pharmaceuticals to ease your pain, that’s okay, too. Migraines can often be prevented through lifestyle changes and specific steps to address triggers.

They Might Indicate a Serious Issue 

Some instances of migraines are caused by a pinched nerve in the neck or back. The only way to rid yourself of them is to release the compression from that nerve. This is actually a good thing, though, as our chiropractic physicians can restore alignment and release compressed nerves naturally.

Sometimes, migraines are indicative of other issues, including strokes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. It’s critical that you seek care to determine and properly address the cause of your migraines.

You Can Be Free From Them

Many people ignore their migraines simply because previous care providers haven’t found a solution, their parents live with them, or something similar. Regardless of such factors, there is no reason to give up. You can be set free from the misery, and our team is here to help.
