Millions of Americans suffer from migraines. If you’re a migraine sufferer, you know how debilitating this condition can be. It can strike without warning and can seriously impact your quality of life. Despite throwing medications and other treatments at their migraines, many sufferers have difficulty finding relief.


At Olson Family Chiropractic, our chiropractic team has expertise in migraine treatment and can help you take back control of your life. Check out this guide to learn more about getting relief when migraines strike. 


Migraine Symptoms

Migraines typically come in the form of throbbing or pain on one or both sides of a person’s head. These are often accompanied by sensitivity to sound and/or light. Migraine sufferers often feel a tightness in their necks as well as tension or pain in their temple areas.


Migraines can be triggered by any number of factors including certain foods, stress, anxiety, and fatigue. They are often linked to a genetic predisposition, but the truth is that almost anyone can get a migraine.


Getting Relief from Migraines

When migraines are left untreated, they can seriously interfere with your quality of life. Finding relief from migraines can be no small feat. Migraine sufferers often try a number of treatments in their efforts to alleviate the pain of migraines, which can last for anywhere from minutes to several days.


Here are a few of the most common migraine treatments:

●        Over-the-counter medications

●        Pharmaceutical medications

●        Botox treatments


Finding Lasting Migraine Help

Despite trying just about everything there is, many sufferers find they still can’t get relief. Most patients don’t realize that chiropractic help can often provide lasting relief. Some migraines are caused or worsened by subluxation or a small misalignment of the spine.


Using a combination of spinal manipulation techniques, physical therapy, and massage, a chiropractic therapist can give these patients the relief that has long eluded them. We can also help you put together an overall care plan that includes altering your lifestyle to avoid triggers and help you have a migraine-free life.
