Lasting Migraine Relief – Pt 1

The one thing every person who experiences migraines needs is relief from their pain. It’s understandable they will want it immediately, but that immediate pain relief from various medications won’t offer you lasting relief. It’s important that you find relief that will last and will not cause you to suffer unwanted side effects.

Though, there are many migraine medications out there, every one of them only covers the symptoms of your pain at best. And the worst thing is those same medications are often used to treat other conditions, such as depression. That’s because they only cover the symptoms, so they are used to treat conditions with similar symptoms.

Below is a list of alternative methods that may help in overcoming that debilitating pain:

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

These are healthy fats that help fight inflammation that causes many types of headaches and some migraines. These fatty acids are found in flax seeds or oils and fresh salmon or fish oil supplements.

Hydrotherapy

This is a type of therapy that can be done in the comfort of one’s home. Just take a shower with the water as hot as you can handle it for a few minutes. Then, turn the water to cold for another two or three minutes. Switching back and forth from hot to cold water for about 20 minutes will help increase blood flow.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic

This is a specific and gentle type of chiropractic that focuses on aligning the top two bones in the spine, also called the upper cervical spine. A misalignment of only ¼ of a millimeter in those two bones can place enough pressure on the brainstem to hinder the communication between the brain and the body.

When the brain is not able to communicate with the body, it can lead to all sorts of health problems including migraines and other headaches. Though, an upper cervical chiropractor can examine a migraine patient’s neck for any misalignments in their upper cervical vertebrae that may be the underlying cause of their migraine pain.
