While headaches are a common complaint among many Americans, that intense pain associated with migraine headaches can be severely debilitating and incredibly difficult to live with.  If you are among those that suffer from migraine pain, know that you are not alone.  Over 37 million people in the U.S. report suffering from migraine headaches that cause them to miss school or work.  No one is excluded from the possibility of experiencing these intense headaches, as men, women, and children alike can suffer from them.  Because children tend to be more resilient, migraines can be shorter in length for them, though they are still intense in pain, causing them to go undiagnosed. However, adults report feeling significant headache pain over a longer period of time with more intense pain. Migraines can affect performance at work and school, disrupting life and resulting in a poor quality of life.  Don’t let migraine pain become a regular part of your life, and don’t believe the lie that you are stuck with migraine pain forever.  Chiropractic care has been shown to offer relief from the pain of migraine headaches and allow you to return to life as it should be.

Managing Migraine Pain

Migraine sufferers can attest to the multitude of symptoms that come with these severe headaches.  From intense throbbing or pounding pain to nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity of light, migraine headaches are far from a pleasant experience.  Sleeping it off, applying a cold compress, and taking medication are all methods for managing migraine pain.  An array of prescription and over-the-counter medications aim to treat migraine pain, and while they might offer relief for a time, migraines eventually return, leaving the root problem untreated.  Studies have shown that chiropractic care gets to the root of migraine pain—spinal subluxations—and can alleviate symptoms altogether.

Chiropractic Care for Migraines

Gentle chiropractic adjustments from Franklin chiropractor Dr. Devan Arman can remove misalignments and provide relief.  Spinal misalignments of twisted or offset vertebrae cut off communication between the central nervous system and the rest of the body, which can cause problems with the function of the body and lead to a myriad of health issues, such as migraines.  Removing the nerve interference by correcting spinal subluxations ensure that the body can function once again at optimal performance.  Many migraine sufferers have found relief after chiropractic adjustments that restore nerve communication.

One case study focused on an 8-year-old boy who experienced chronic headaches for two years.  After regular chiropractic adjustments, he reported no longer suffering from any headaches.  Another instance of chiropractic care offering relief for migraines is shown in the case study of a 12-year-old boy.  His migraines and vertigo symptoms had caused him to miss almost half a year of school.  After being under chiropractic care for just one week, he reported resolution of all headaches. Eventually, the vertigo and dizziness also resolved.

It is important to remember that chiropractic care should become a regular part of your wellness routine, as activity or injuries can cause additional misalignments of the spine that need to be corrected.  Making it a part of your health routine ensures that your migraines won’t return and you can be free from the pain of severe headaches!
