For people who suffer from recurrent migraines, the quest for relief can be a long and frustrating one. Medications don’t always work as expected, and many patients would rather avoid the side effects and risks of prescription pain pills. At Synergy Sports Wellness Institute™, we spend every day with patients who want to finally address the root cause of their pain. If you’re looking for an alternative or a complement to your migraine medication, our customized chiropractic care may be able to help.
Spinal Manipulation for Migraines with Synergy Release Therapy
There is still some medical mystery behind migraines. They have several potential causes and triggers, and researchers aren’t entirely sure what determines this and why some people get migraines while others don’t. This is why it’s so difficult to nail down a specific treatment regimen – because different strategies work for different patients. But it’s been well-documented that tension and misalignment in the neck and back can cause headaches, and it’s true for migraines as well. Spinal manipulation combined with our specialized Synergy Release Therapy or other techniques can relieve tension, re-align the bones and tissues, and allow the blood vessels to function better for a reduction in migraine symptoms.
Aftercare Help for Migraines
On top of in-office spinal manipulation, doctors of chiropractic like our providers at Synergy Sports Wellness Institute can help you maintain your results at home. Depending on the approach that works best for you, we can teach you exercises, stretches, treatments, and techniques you can do at home to reduce your migraines. For example, if poor posture is playing a role in your migraines, we can help you practice better posture as well.
Migraines are frustrating and intrusive, interfering with your ability to live life to the fullest. If you’re still looking for a better way to fight them, chiropractic care may be the answer. At Synergy Sports Wellness Institute™, our philosophy is to treat the root cause of our patients’ pain, not the symptoms.
