Check in with trained chiropractic professionals for advanced migraines treatment which is not about prescribing pills but all about realigning your internal systems so that you function like a normal person once again. Almost 28 million Americans are afflicted by this condition.
In spite of the staggering figure it is largely underdiagnosed and undertreated by traditional medical science.
A migraine headache is characterized by intense throbbing or pulsing in one part of the head. They can be severe and last for hours. It is a form of vascular headache which is caused by enlargement of blood vessels or vasodilatation. This in turn releases certain chemicals from the nerve fibers that surround the large arteries of the brain leading to inflammation and pain. Untreated the blood vessels tend to further enlargement which magnifies the pain manifold. Holistic treatment for migraines in spinal and CNS adjustments to prevent further enlargement and inflammation.
Traditionally most people are prone to take OTC pain meds to deal with the pain whenever they get a migraine attack. It is obvious that this is not a long term solution since the pain recurs with increasing intensity every time. What are needed are alternative remedies and lifestyle changes to reduce them from occurring altogether. Moreover, these attacks tend to activate the sympathetic nervous system in the body leading to nausea and diarrhea and delay in emptying of the stomach which prevents the pain meds from working. Migraines treatmentalso focuses in restoring normal blood flow which will prevent whitening pallor and limbs from turning cold.
Though the exact causes are always difficult to pinpoint in the case of migraines, some probable causes include:
- Hormonal imbalance in women
- Presence of migraines triggers like MSG and Tyramine in food and drinks
- Insomnia or disturbed sleep
- Drugs and medication
- Caffeine addiction
- Excessive Alcohol intake
- Irregular meal times
- Physical exertion
- Personal or professional Stress
- Bright lights and sun glare, odor sensitivity
- Climate changes
