There are few conditions which occur as regularly and as painfully as a migraine. If you’re one of the many people who unfairly call a migraine simply a ‘bad headache’, then you’ve clearly never had one.
A migraine is extremely painful and distressing, usually coupled with symptoms such as visual disturbance, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, extreme sensitivity to light and noise, blood pressure problems, and basically a very unpleasant few hours or even days until the symptoms abate.
If you are one of the millions of sufferers worldwide, then finding an effective and successful treatment option should be at the top of your must do list. Of course, everyone is different, and one option may not suit one person but work wonderfully well for another; it’s all about finding out what works for you and adapting your life to accommodate it, whilst hopefully reducing the severity and frequency of attacks. It can be done however.
Help is at hand!
Here at Eastland Chiropractic, we recognise the importance of identifying your personal trigger to a migraine, and finding a successful treatment option for you as an individual. Chiropractic has been shown to be highly effective in helping reduce the frequency and severity of migraine attacks, and studies have even shown that those who undergo chiropractic on a regular basis actually suffer from less attacks as a result. The gentle manipulations and movements which make up the basis of chiropractic help to correct misalignment and imbalances within the body, helping restore the body’s natural harmony and balance.
Ringwood chiropractor, Dr Longstaff, has worked with many migraine sufferers to successfully treat and avoid triggers within their lives. Combined with chiropractic this could certainly be the option for you, and one which should certainly be tried.
We mentioned that triggers are different for everyone, and sometimes it can be a combination of a few which kick off a migraine attack. There are obviously some common triggers out there, such as hormonal fluctuations due to the menstrual cycle or menopause, obviously for women, sleep disturbance on a regular basis, an overly stressful lifestyle, changes in weather, an extreme sensitivity and reaction to certain foods or ingredients, extremely bright or flickering lights, extreme heat or cold, as well as sensitivity to certain odours and perfumes. As you can see, the list is quite extensive, so pin-pointing a personal trigger can be a lengthy elimination process, however it is a quest which can be successfully achieved.
