There are many kinds of medications used to treat migraines. They include medications purchased with and without a prescription. Some can be taken daily to prevent migraines, and some are only taken at the first signs of migraine. Some medications like antidepressants and blood pressure medications are prescribed off-label for migraines.
Although not a replacement for medication, changing some habits can reduce both the frequency and intensity of your migraines. These changes include cutting back on caffeine, quitting smoking, getting enough sleep, and regular gentle exercise. Lifestyle changes not only help with migraines but also with your overall health.
Keep a Migraine Journal
Certain foods, drinks, medications, smells, and activities can trigger migraines. Learning how to identify your triggers helps you avoid them. By avoiding them, you avoid migraines. Keep a journal and log what you eat and drink as well as your daily activities. Reviewing this journal will help you learn your triggers. Women should keep track of their periods because many women get migraines right before their periods.
K-laser was approved by the FDA in 2002. Low levels of lasers can help migraines. Despite sounding drastic, treatments are painless. Treatments last anywhere from three to nine minutes.
Acupuncture is an ancient healing system that still helps migraine sufferers to this day. It involves inserting a series of hair-thin needles at certain points in the body. The insertion of these needles opens up energy pathways throughout the body, promoting relaxation and relief from pain. Many patients fall asleep during treatments because they become so relaxed.
Our chiropractor uses spinal adjustments to help relieve pain and promote well-being. Since the first chiropractic treatment in 1895, millions of patients have helped get relief from a variety of chronic ailments including migraines. Like acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments promote relief and relaxation and will reduce both the frequency and intensity of your headaches and migraines.
