Little Neck Chiropractors May Relieve Migraines

Severe migraines can be so debilitating that you cannot perform the daily activities of your life. The intensity of the pain makes many people lie down in a dark room, unable to perform any activities. Working or looking after children can become almost impossible to perform with a severe migraine. It might even feel impossible to hold a thought for more than a few second. Luckily, Little Neck chiropractors are able to provide relief for migraines without drugs or any invasive procedures.


Did you know that there are a variety of types of headaches? Many people tend to call any intense headache a migraine, but a true migraine sticks to some exact criteria. Other types of headaches you might be experiencing are called tension headaches or cluster headaches. Each of which hold their own type of criteria.

In order for someone to be considered a “migraine sufferer,” they must have at least five separate episodes that last for the prescribed time frames mentioned above. The headaches must also have at least two of the following characteristics: pulsating pain, unilateral location (one side), nausea or vomiting, visual or auditory sensitivity, and aggravation of the headache by physical activity. Many migraine sufferers, roughly 20 percent, will see visual auras before a migraine headache comes on. This early warning system helps let them know what’s coming, but doesn’t lessen the intensity.


If you seek migraine treatment from a Little Neck chiropractor, you’ll be given a full assessment and evaluation to determine exactly what is going on with your head and your spinal column. Further testing/advanced imaging might be recommended to determine the most complete picture possible before any treatment begins. Remember that every patient is different, and we make decisions regarding treatment on a case by case basis.

We use a variety of techniques in office to help reduce pain associated with headaches. It could even be possible that you have nutritional triggers that are adding to your migraine intensity. If this is the case, your chiropractor may offer nutritional advice to remove those triggers. Advice on your posture and various relaxation techniques could also be part of the treatment plan.
