Struggling With Migraines? Our Austin TX Chiropractor Can Help

When migraines enter your life, they leave a huge footprint -- with not much room left for anything else. If your quality of life has taken a nosedive due to the splitting headache pain, nausea, vision problems and other symptoms associated with migraines, you should know that our Austin TX chiropractor, Dr. Wottrich, can help you obtain more extensive relief than medications can provide.

Migraine Triggers and Solutions

Some 37 million Americans suffer from migraines, and more than 11 million consider themselves disabled by the condition. A variety of triggers can set off migraine attacks, including:

  • Specific foods and food additives
  • Weather changes
  • Hormonal issues
  • Emotional or physical stress
  • Flashing lights
  • Loud sounds
  • Medications
  • A physical injury such as whiplash or a concussion

These triggers set off a chain of biochemical imbalances and swollen cranial blood vessels that produce migraines. A migraine can subject you to a crushing headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and extreme light/sound sensitivity for up to 72 hours. Current migraine medications can mute the headache pain temporarily -- but that's little comfort when you experience frequent attacks.

Get Control Over That Migraine Headache

Chiropractic treatment can go beyond anything drugs are currently capable of to help you control your migraines at their source. One study found that nearly half of all participants enjoyed a significant reduction in migraine severity, while 22 percent of them saw the frequency of their attacks slashed by 90 percent.

How is this possible? By normalizing your cervical spinal alignment, our chiropractor can relieve physical stresses or injury-related abnormalities that may contribute to migraines. These adjustments can also improve your nervous system function, which in turn can optimize your biochemical processes. Soft tissue manipulation and corrective exercises can reinforce your relief, while lifestyle and dietary recommendations can help you remove specific trigger from your life.
