Migraine headaches can seriously debilitate a person thanks to the accompanying pain and other symptoms. Doctors have various treatments that they recommend. There are also various natural remedies. What treatment will you choose in an attempt to relieve migraine headaches? Here are some of your options.
Doctors may prescribe one of a hundred different drugs for your migraines. This is because they still are not sure exactly what causes a migraine. Medications may include those that are usually prescribed for high blood pressure, depression, or seizures. Much of this is done by trial and error, and each drug comes with its own list of side effects.
Many obtain some measure of success at preventing migraines by keeping a journal to learn what their triggers are. Triggers may include certain food and drinks, various activities, or things like emotional and physical stress. Environmental triggers may include extreme temperatures and loud noises. This option may call for certain lifestyle changes, but no doubt you will agree that reducing the number of migraines you experience would be worth it.
One natural approach that many people are turning to in order to relieve migraine headaches is upper cervical chiropractic. A specialized adjustment to the C1 and C2 vertebrae could relieve pressure on the brain stem or spinal cord. If a misalignment of these vertebrae is what is causing your migraines, you may experience fast relief without medication. Schedule a consult to see if an upper neck injury may be the underlying cause of your migraine headaches, and take the first step in becoming migraine free today.
