Whether you’re a migraine sufferer you know how unpleasant and exhausting it can be when a migraine takes effect.
Not everyone has exactly the same experience but generally pain is the main function.
One migraine headache has the potential to ruin your day entirely, but there are some
suggestions you can follow from a RECO SPINAL CENTRE to help make things a little easier.
WHAT A MIGRAIN?
If you have been diagnosed with migraines, this means that you get headaches that last from 4 to 72 hours of mild to extreme pain. To be graded as a migraine the headache must have two characteristics:
- Moderate to severe pain
- Unilateral location
- Pulsating pain
- Made worse by normal activity like walking
It must also have at least one of the following:
- Sensitivity to light and sound
- Nausea and/or vomiting
You will be treated as a migraine sufferer after you have had five attacks with these guidelines and the symptoms are not due to a more severe health problem.Until a migraine comes on, many migraine sufferers can see auras in their field of vision.
PREVENTION HELPFUL TIPS
It’s not always possible to avoid migraines so it’s best to stay away from them if you have any known causes.
Some common causes for headache include certain foods, bright lights, loud noises, certain scents, lack of sleep, fatigue, high stress rates and poor posture. When you find that a migraine comes on or that auras are caused by one of
the causes above, do your best to stop it and see if your migraine incidence is decreased. An important preventive method could also be to visit RECO SPINAL CENTRE for treatment.
CHIROPRACTIC PAIN DIAGNOSIS
Spinal adjustments are one of the main chiropractic therapies for migraine headaches, intended to relieve pressure and stress on the body. Your spine is full of nerves, bones, blood vessels , tendons, muscles and ligaments
and it can cause a host of complications when the discs are not in alignment.
If the issue is dealt with from a number of different angles, you will be able to experience fewer episodes and the the probability of taking pain medication. You may be able to remove the migraines entirely with regular treatment and
care from a chiropractic doctor at RECO SPINAL CENTRE.
