If You Suffer from Chronic Migraines, Chiropractic Care Could Be the Answer

If you suffer from migraines, you already know how debilitating they can be. They may sideline you for hours or days at a time, affecting your happiness, productivity, and quality of life. If you feel like you’ve tried every treatment on the market, don’t give up hope just yet. Chiropractic care could be the answer.

Migraines are not all the same

Chronic migraines are severe, painful headaches that keep coming back (or never leave) no matter what treatments or medications you try. Defined as having 15 or more headache days per month, they may come with a visual aura, such as spots or jagged lines in your visual field, a throbbing pain on one side of your head, and/or a sensitivity to light, sound, and smell. You may be nauseous or even vomit, although not everyone does. People who suffer from episodic migraines may have some or all of these symptoms, but they have less than 15 headache days per month. Migraines are different in each person, and what triggers a migraine in one person may not even bother you.

When you come into one of our AllCare Chiropractic locations in Bowie, Laurel, or Annapolis, Maryland, you’ll meet with Jonathan Nou, DC or one of our other chiropractors who specialize in migraine care. They’ll review your medical history, examine you, and try to figure out what’s contributing to your migraines. For example, maybe you have tension in your neck, high blood pressure, or some dysfunction in your temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

Chiropractic care

Chiropractic care complements other treatments

If you prefer alternative treatments for your migraines, you probably already know about the benefits of chiropractic care. But if you’ve been using conventional medicine and aren’t getting the results you want, give chiropractic care a try. Just be sure to let Dr. Nou and our team at AllCare Chiropractic know what medications and supplements you take so we can take that into consideration. You never know, some of your medicines may have side effects that are contributing to your migraines.

What our team can do for migraines:

If you suffer from chronic or episodic migraines, chiropractic care could be the answer you’ve been waiting for. By improving your overall health and reducing tension in your neck and upper body, you may experience less frequent or less severe migraines.
