Migraines & Chiropractic Care – Your Path to a Headache-Free Life

Migraine

Do you start each day with a sense of uncertainty? The ever-present awareness that at any moment, a migraine awaits. This dreadful and unsettling experience is the reality for more than 4.9 million Australians. The impact of migraines extends far beyond a mere headache, encompassing a spectrum of debilitating symptoms that can disrupt daily life. The good news is that chiropractic can help ease the burden of this unrelenting uphill battle.

How can Chiropractic help migraines?

1. Spinal Adjustments

As chiropractors, we carry out spinal adjustments to correct misalignments or subluxations in the spine and cervical (neck) region. Spinal joints in the upper neck region can become restricted and lead to irritation of the nerves that pass through that area. By restoring proper alignment, chiropractic adjustments aim to reduce irritation to the nerves and improve overall nerve function.

2. Posture Correction

Poor posture can contribute to spinal misalignments and musculoskeletal tension which can increase the overall stress on the spine and increase the risk of triggering a migraine. Chiropractors can provide guidance on improving postural control and can even prescribe specialised spinal orthotic devices which can restore lost alignment of the spine.

3. Lifestyle Advice

Migraines are a complex neurological condition that can be influenced by a variety of triggers including:

  • irregular sleep patterns,
  • dietary factors,
  • stress,
  • hormonal imbalances,
  • environmental factors,
  • physical exertion, and
  • medication overuse to name a few.

As Chiropractors, we are trained to identify these irregularities and can provide you with the necessary lifestyle modifications to manage and control your migraines.

Embarking on a journey to conquer migraines begins with understanding the intricate relationship between the spine and these relentless headaches.
