Overview of Migraines

As sportsmen and women, or older active adults, you understand that your journey is unique. Your migraine challenges are also unique, which is why the expertise of a Rehab Chiropractor is essential in assessing and diagnosing the most effective treatment options for your particular situation. Whether it's discovering the underlying causes or recommending lifestyle changes, a Rehab Chiropractor can help you find relief from your migraines.

Signs & Symptoms of Migraines

Migraines are not just ordinary headaches. They can be debilitating, with intense throbbing pain often accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can last for hours or even days, disrupting your daily life, and keeping you from doing the things you love.

The severity and frequency of migraines vary from person to person. They may start as a dull ache that gradually worsens or can come on suddenly without warning. The pain can be so severe that it becomes difficult to concentrate or even perform simple tasks.

Leaving migraines untreated can lead to a multitude of short-term and long-term consequences. In the short term, you may experience a reduced quality of life, decreased productivity, and missed opportunities. Over time, untreated migraines can lead to chronic migraines, increasing your risk of other health issues such as depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders.

Causes of Migraines

While the exact cause of migraines remains unknown, several factors can trigger or contribute to their development. These may include hormonal changes, stress, certain foods or drinks, changes in sleep patterns, and even physical activity. However, it's important to remember that each person's migraine triggers are unique, and identifying them requires individual attention from a Rehab Chiropractor.

A: Absolutely! A Rehab Chiropractor can help identify specific lifestyle changes that may help reduce your migraines, such as improving sleep habits, managing stress, and identifying potential dietary triggers.
