Our Orlando Chiropractic Center Answers Your Migraine Questions

Few conditions can leave you feeling more helpless that a full-blown migraine. When you're in agony from a migraine attack, you feel that no one else understands what you're going through -- and you may not even really understand it yourself. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions on the subject, including safe, natural, effective treatment options from our Orlando chiropractic center, Summit Chiropractic.

  • How can I tell when a migraine is coming?

You may get some advance warning when a migraine is on the way. Drowsiness, depression, feelings of restlessness or hunger, and even a feeling a profound well being can precede a migraine attack. You may also experience strange visual phenomena known as auras.

  • What are the symptoms of a migraine in progress?

Migraines cause excruciating pain on one side of the head, accompanied by nausea, vomiting, light or sound sensitivity, speech problems, scalp tenderness and or coldness/sweating in the hands. These symptoms may occur in a series of bouts that disable you for up to 72 hours.

  • What can trigger a migraine?

One of the most frustrating things about migraines is how many things can set them off. Typical migraine triggers include certain foods and beverages, bright or flickering light (including light from the TV or sunlight), sleep or meal schedule changes, emotional or physical stress, weather changes, hormonal fluctuations and medications.

  • Why am I prone to migraines in the first place?

Migraines are mysterious in origin, although they can run in families. They seem to occur when changes in the brain stem lower brain serotonin levels. This causes the trigeminal nerve to send out signals that inflame blood vessels, resulting in migraine symptoms.

  • How can chiropractic adjustment help with migraines?

The brain chemistry alterations that spur migraines may in turn be influenced by upper cervical misalignments that disrupt neural communications. Spinal adjustments that improve nerve communication and upper cervical alignment can help normalize many physical systems, including biochemical balances. Chiropractic care has been found to reduce migraine frequency in up to 90 percent of study participants, while also reducing migraine severity by up to 49 percent.

  • What other migraine treatments can my Orlando chiropractor prescribe?

Your Orlando chiropractor, Dr. Fike or Dr. Warner, can help you address your migraine triggers so you can avoid setting off future bouts as much as possible. Nutritional counseling, for instance, can help you adjust your diet so you steer clear of problematic foods and additives. Massage therapy can relieve pent-up stress, while lifestyle counseling can optimize your sleep and other habits for a more migraine-free existence.
