Alleviating Migraines in Norton Shores, Michigan

They are more commonplace than ever before. In fact, out of every 4 households in America, 1 of them has a person suffering from migraines. However, even with the growing number of patients seeing a chiropractor in Norton Shores, migraines remain a mystery in the medical field.

What Causes Migraines?

No one really understands why they happen or how best to care for them. What works for one person may not work for another. Doctors mainly focus on finding a way to target symptoms once a head pain has begun.

Sometimes lifestyle changes can be helpful to one experiencing migraines. Migraines interrupt a person’s daily routine and habits. Therefore, recognizing and avoiding potential triggers is vital when trying to mitigate as many attacks as possible. Here are some suggestions:

  • Exercise on a regular basis. Striving for 20-30 minutes of aerobic exercise each day may be a good preventative measure in fighting off migraines.
  • Keep a regular schedule. Getting to bed and waking up at the same time helps the body to be on a schedule and may alleviate head pain.
  • Keep a migraine journal. Keeping track of foods eaten, weather and sleep patterns can help in predicting what is triggering migraines.

Migraine Relief with a Chiropractor in Norton Shores

It is important that the body is functioning at its optimum in order to avoid migraines. One area that needs specific attention by a chiropractor in Norton Shores is that of the bones of the upper neck. These bones lie in a vital area that is rich in nerves, and the brainstem is nearby.

A misalignment of either the C1 or C2 vertebra can wreak havoc on the body because pressure may be placed on the brainstem causing the nervous system to malfunction. Communication and blood flow to and from the body and brain is also hindered. This sets up the perfect conditions for a migraine to occur.

Here at Zehr Chiropractic, we use a gentle method to help the bones of the neck that are out of place to move back into proper alignment. This allows communication and blood flow to be restored. The nervous system can once again do its job. This is often all that is needed to see a decrease in head pain or even an elimination of them in some.
