Migraine treatments often vary, depending on the severity of the headaches, the age of the patient and the need for relief. Migraines are noted most for their longevity, sometimes lasting days at a time and recurring up to several times a month in some patients. The go-to treatment is medication. Over-the-counter drugs, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, are often taken for mild migraines while prescription pain relief can address more serious incidents. Many people will lie down in a dark room after taking medication as a way of lessening the symptoms.

Other forms of medication focus on preventing the migraines, rather than treatment of the symptoms. This can be tricky because the causes of migraines are not yet fully understood, but certain treatments can be effective in the right circumstances. Cardiovascular drugs can increase blood flow to the brain while antidepressants and some types of antihistamine affect the balance of neurotransmitters. In some cases, reducing certain kinds of medication--for example, those that contain estrogen--can reduce the frequency of migraines as well.

Chiropractic Research May Benefit Migraine Treatments

Though their techniques don't work for every instance of migraines, chiropractors can provide relief in a number of cases.

Some patients suffer migraines due to problems in the neck--when a vertebra is out of balance or the nerves or blood vessels are constricted. Chiropractic research has provided relief for those conditions. By correcting the misaligned bones or discs, the nerve endings are freed up and the migraines consequently diminish. Racine Chiropractic & Wellness Center provides advice for migraine treatments in Winter Park, Florida.
