Pain Relief - How Chiropractors Can Naturally Treat Migraines and More

Those who are affected by health problems such as migraines and other conditions often rely on prescription drugs and natural migraine medications to ease their pain and manage their symptoms. However, these drugs can have side effects and negative consequences which can be a detriment.

Chiropractic care is a safe and natural way to treat a lot of health problems. Many people don’t realise the many different health problems that chiropractic care can relieve just by aligning the spine. There are a lot of conditions that are caused by misalignment of spinal bones and chiropractic care can provide relief for many of these conditions. Spine health has a beneficial effect on a number of aspects of overall health and can relieve problems all over the body.

Here are some of the ways that chiropractors can treat conditions such as migraine, chronic sinusitis and much more, in a healthy and natural way.

Natural Treatment of Migraines

If you suffer from migraines, you know how incredibly painful and debilitating it can be. A migraine is much more than just a bad headache, it is a headache that is so severe that the only thing you can do is lie still in a quiet and dark room because you are so sensitive to light and noise. Migraines can also come with other symptoms including tingling of the limbs, dizziness, extreme fatigue, insomnia and much more.

Many sufferers of migraines take a range of natural migraine medications to relieve them of these symptoms. However, those who are taking prescription medications have to determine whether the benefits outweigh the risks of side effects. Some natural migraine medications take a toll on the body and have some very undesirable effects. In contrast, chiropractic care can relieve symptoms without the patient having to take medication.

Chiropractic care has been shown to relieve the symptoms of migraine. If you have a bone out of place in your spine, this can place pressure on the surrounding nerves – which can increase the likelihood of migraines. A chiropractor will be able to put the misaligned bones back into place, which will ensure that the nerves are no longer compromised. This is an adjustment that is drug-free, all-natural and safe. Many people find that their migraine symptoms disappear completely, or occur far less frequently after a chiropractic adjustment.

Other Conditions and Symptoms that Chiropractic Care Can Relieve

Chiropractic care is also a drug-free way to treat a number of other conditions and symptoms that might be causing you pain and discomfort. Here are a few examples:

Chronic Sinusitis

This condition is a result of sinus passages that cannot drain properly, which is related to nerve related causes. According to a study from 2012, many patients experienced relief of their sinusitis symptoms after having a chiropractic adjustment.

Range of Motion

Many people with injuries to the rotator cuff, perhaps caused by falls or car accidents, experience a loss of their range of motion. There have been reports that chiropractic care, along with regular exercise and massage, can cause the patient to regain mobility and strength and return to their old routine.

Sciatica

This condition is a series of symptoms which occur when the sciatic nerve (which runs from the bottom of the spine through the pelvis, hips and feet) is inflamed or misaligned. Sciatica causes pain in the back and buttocks, as well as tingling, numbness, burning, shaky legs and weakness.

Chiropractic care helps to ease the pain in the lower back, without having to rely on medication. The chiropractor will be able to realign the vertebrae, which will remove the pressure from the sciatic nerve.

Bell’s Palsy

Bell’s Palsy is a condition that causes a number of symptoms including hearing disorders, facial paralysis, problems with the jaw and much more. Many chiropractors work with patients who suffer from Bell’s Palsy, creating unique treatment programs which are tailored to their needs. These programs have been seen to relieve pain, improve range of motion and help with other nerve related issues that are related to this disease.

In addition to providing a drug-free way to relieve migraines, these are just a few of the ways that chiropractic care and proper spinal alignment can provide natural health treatment of a variety of symptoms and conditions. If you can find relief from your condition with chiropractic care, this means that you will not need to take prescription or natural migraine medications, this might have unknown effectiveness or dangerous side effects.
