Adults may experience migraines in their lifetime with more females 15% than males 6%.
While there can be multiple causes for migraines, we do know some common symptoms to look for including.
- Family history of migraines
- Food cravings
- Frequent yawning
- Increased thirst and urination
- Mood changes, from depression to euphoria
- Nasal congestion
- Neck stiffness
- Pain behind the eyes
- Triggers such as stress, weather, sleep deprivation, alcohol use, and certain foods.
The list goes on… but if you are one who takes pain medications for quick relief to help mask these symptoms, then not only are you are putting yourself at serious risk for longer terms issues such as damage to your kidney’s and liver, but you never get down to the root cause as to why the symptom persists.
Research studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments are effective for treating migraines. They have also shown that ongoing Chiropractic care may help prevent unnecessary tension and irritation in the neck and head. Acupuncture is also an effective treatment of migraines.
