Migraine headache pain tends to be throbbing and sever. Migraines can cause stomach upset, throwing up, and sensitivity to light and sound. They may get worse if you move around.

Studies have shown these treatments work well for this type of headache:

  • Chiropractic care:
    Include adjustments and pain-easing modalities, such as massage.
  • Stress-control techniques:
    Belly breathing and visualization skills help ease stress.
  • Exercising:
    Try routine aerobic workouts and yoga.
  • Eating:
    Do not skip meals; drink plenty of water.
  • Keep regular sleep/wake hours:
    Make sure that you go to bed and get up in the morning at the same time every day, including weekends.
  • Losing weight if you weigh too much:
    Obesity may worsen migraines.
  • Avoiding your triggers:
    Common triggers can be not sticking to a routine sleep or meal plan and certain foods, such as red wine, chocolate, and cured meats. Once you start to learn what your triggers are, see what you can do to avoid them. To learn what they are, keep a headache diary. Over time, you may see patterns of what may be causing your headaches. Learning your triggers can help you and your doctor better manage your headaches and find a treatment that works for you.

Tips to help ease the pain:

  • Rest in a quiet, dark place.
    Place a cool cloth on your forehead. Or wrap an ice pack and place it on the back of your neck.
  • Massage your scalp and temples.
    Use firm pressure.
  • Drink water.
    This will prevent fluid loss, especially if you are throwing up.

Ask your chiropractor if there are any tests, referrals, or treatments that might be helpful to use along with your current treatment plan.

Other treatment options may include the following:

  • Physical therapy:
    This can involve exercises, manual therapy, and modalities to ease pain and strengthen affected body regions.
  • Acupuncture:
    This includes pain-easing and stress-calming techniques.
  • Massage therapy:
    This relieves muscle tension and lowers stress.
  • Medicines:
    There are a number of different medications that may help with migraine pain relief or prevention.
  • Nutritional services:
    This may involve working with a registered dietitian to identify and avoid dietary triggers.
