Migraines find an involuntary off-switch when they creep into their victims’ lives. 25 million Americans will search to find a remedy to their migraine affliction this year, and pray to take back control of their on and off switch. While there is much debate out there about what the most effective treatment for migraines is, what we can tell you is solely medicating is not the solution we need to be promoting.
Here’s why: Now more than ever in human history, we are seeing an epidemic of Opioid addiction and abuse. Do you know what Opioids are used for? Pain relief, especially when it comes to severe headaches and migraines. So when we just medicate the problem, we first and foremost are not healing, we’re just telling our brain to not feel the pain and symptoms of our problem, and we are teasing a dependence on the medication we are taking. You see, when a patient is solely medicating their migraines, they are trading one master for another, not freeing themselves from the pain.
If you want to be truly free from the excruciating pain of migraines, you need to change the game from defensive to offensive. Did you know that most migraines originate from mis-alignments in the neck and spine? You just feel the effects of this misalignment in your temples and skull. And did you know that Chiropractic manipulation can not only re-align your vertebrae but also encourage healthy spinal structure, which has a direct effect on the frequency and intensity of migraines? Chiropractic care can help in the midst of a migraine and prevent new ones from shutting you down in the future.
Take back control— don’t let the pain and side effects of medication decide when you turn on and off.
