Migraines are a severe form of headache which can include sensory symptoms such as flashes of light, tingling in the legs and arms, blind spots, sensitivity to sound and light, nausea, and vomiting. The pain can last for hours and even days. Usually, migraines and headaches are brought on by a trigger. Triggers include:
Avoiding the items on the list if possible will help to prevent headaches and migraines before they occur. Drinking enough water and eating regularly and choosing healthy options will also help. If you spend time at computer or in fixed position regularly, getting up to stretch every 30 minutes is very beneficial. Avoid clenching your teeth and low-impact exercise can help to relieve or avoid causing pain.
Spinal manipulations and adjustments can help to improve spinal function and alleviate the pressure on the joints and nerves. Dietary changes may also be recommended by Dr. Chad and these can help the nerves and joints stay healthy. Changes in posture and incorporating exercise and relaxation techniques into your daily routine can help greatly and Dr. Chad can suggest the best options to suit your lifestyle.
