chiropractic care in Mooresville for headaches.jpgOne of the complaints patients have when they visit our Mooresville chiropractor is that they've been experiencing migraines on a regular basis. These intense headaches can be debilitating, preventing people from going to work, caring for kids, or even getting out of bed. When we help treat patients, we focus both on ways to manage pain during a migraine and ways to prevent them in the first place, often by avoiding triggers to promote overall wellness.

4 Common Migraine Triggers and How to Avoid Them

1. Stress: Managing stressful situations can help prevent triggering a migraine. Some tips include taking time for yourself on a regular basis; planning to do activities you enjoy or find relaxing; and talking to your employer if work-related stress is leading to wellness issues. Getting chiropractic adjustments can also help keep you from holding stress in your back, neck, and shoulders.

2. Foods: Many of your favorite foods may be behind your migraines, and cutting them out of your diet can help. Common offenders include aged cheese, chocolate, beer, wine, excessive caffeine, processed foods, MSG, and salty foods. Rather than doing a ban of these foods, our Mooresville chiropractor suggests keeping a food diary for several months and looking for patterns of what foods you tend to eat right before the onset of a migraine.

3. Misaligned Vertebrae: Because migraines are affected by nerves, misalignment in your spine can lead to headaches. Therefore, receiving chiropractic treatment to realign your spine and improve overall posture can help alleviate symptoms triggered by back and neck problems.

4. Sensory Overload: Extreme sensory stimuli can trigger headaches, and keeping yourself out of range from these stimuli is an effective prevention strategy. Some examples of common triggers include strong scents, loud noises, and flickering lights, like when watching a movie in the dark or driving with glare. Avoid the ones that you notice may be triggering headaches.
