Migraine Madness: What Can Be Done?
Migraines are the worst kind of headaches. They can put you down, keep you from enjoying life, and make you physically ill. Most of us don’t experience migraines on a daily basis, but one migraine is too many. If you suffer from migraines, check out these methods for eliminating the pain and potentially eliminating migraines from your life for good.
Option 1: Medication
The few people that I know that experience migraines treat them with some form of medication. Some are able to use a simple over the counter, while others require a prescription. Some of these people claim that the medication is successful in managing the pain associated with the migraine. Others feel as though the medication does little to help. This form of treatment seems to differ from person to person. It also does little in the way of prevention. Instead of keeping the migraines away, the medicine helps to control the pain. While this is better than nothing, it isnot the only option out there if you find this one to be less than impressive for you.
Option 2: Triggers
Some people, especially those that don’t seem to benefit from the medication route, choose to find their migraine trigger. Many doctors believe that migraines are brought on by a specific trigger. A smell, a light, an allergy...any of these could be a trigger for a migraine. The hard part is finding the trigger. Since it could be drastically different for every person, the only way to find it is by trial and elimination. While finding the trigger can work wonders for preventing headaches, it can be a difficult task, with many people being unable to narrow down the cause of their migraines.
Option 3: Chiropractic Care
Many people use chiropractic care in order to alleviate migraines, and in some cases, completely eliminate migraines. Chiropractors are able to perform manual spinal manipulation in order to realign vertebrae that are out of proper alignment. These misalignments can cause pain all over the body, poor functioning bodily systems, and of course, migraines. Allowing these to be put back in place makes for less severe symptoms and less frequency of migraines for many people.
