Migraine Pain Relief Treatment with Your Wheat Ridge Chiropractor
Migraine headaches can halt a person’s life for days. Unfortunately, the go-to painkillers only give temporary migraine pain relief—and frequently, they come with unpleasant side effects, yet without actually resolving the underlying causes. Chiropractic care, however, can solve the root causes of migraines by restoring correct nervous system function—without drugs. Schedule an appointment with your Edgewater, Lakewood and Wheat Ridge chiropractor at Well Beings Chiropractic Family Health for natural migraine treatment today.
Why Do I Get Migraines?
Scientists think migraines have both genetic and biomechanical causes. About 12% of Americans suffer migraine headache attacks: 18% of women, 10% of children and 6% of men experience this excruciating head pain—90% of sufferers report a family history of migraines.
Biomechanically, researchers have found that when the trigeminal nerve is irritated, migraine attacks increase. The trigeminal nerve controls feeling and function to the head and face. Often, a neck injury like whiplash due to a sports injury or car accident injury can irritate this nerve, causing an increase in painful headaches and migraines. Poor posture from “tech neck” and other poor ergonomic habits can also increase migraine attacks.
Other common migraine triggers include:
- Chemical imbalances from poor nutrition and environmental toxins
- Irregular sleep habits
- Hormonal issues (migraines can be more frequent during pregnancy)
- Certain foods and food additives
