Types of Migraines

Suffering from migraine pain can put a damper on your daily activities. Many people who experience frequent migraines also experience nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light. This pain can last several hours to several days. Seeing a neurologic chiropractor can help treat headache pain, reducing the intensity and frequency. We at North Idaho Chiropractic Neurology Center in Sandpoint, ID, understand the need for migraine relief and are ready to help treat your migraine symptoms. 


What Is a Migraine? 

A migraine can cause sharp pain on one or both sides of the head. Sometimes a migraine is accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light, sound, or smell, lasting a few hours to several days. Other common symptoms of migraines include fatigue, loss of appetite, mood changes, or auras. In addition, some patients have experienced blurred vision, ringing in the ears, and other types of symptoms. Be aware the migraines can look like other types of conditions. 

Common types of migraines include aura, menstrual, vestibular, abdominal, hemiplegic, ophthalmic, and status migraines. 

What Can Help with Migraine Relief? 

Most migraine headaches last about four hours, but some can linger on for several days. Some people find headache relief by sleeping, resting, taking over-the-counter medications, and placing a cool cloth on their forehead. Other patients seek chiropractic care with a chiropractic doctor who can help treat the pain's root cause, providing relief for migraines. 

Can a Neurologic Chiropractor Help with Migraine Pain? 

We can help with providing headache relief using various chiropractic techniques. For example, we may use spinal adjustments and manipulation to help realign the spine and provide relief to compressed nerves. Ultimately, chiropractic care for migraines seeks to pinpoint the root cause of the headache, determines what is triggering the headaches, and develops a pain management treatment plan to help reduce the intensity and frequency of your migraines.
