Are you always suffering from migraines? If so, you probably have found yourself looking for a new remedy to find relief. Having a migraine is incapacitating; it is true. You can’t keep on doing the things you usually do, and of course, you can’t live happily. However, did you realize that needle therapy can help you make the migraines stop?
At Physio Logic, we use acupuncture to treat migraines by discovering the root of your pain and without using meds.
It is well known that acupuncture alone reduced the frequency of tension headaches by 50% and lowered the overall pain levels experienced during headaches/migraines. Let us explain how.
We could say that a migraine is an intense throbbing pain felt in just one side of the head, and it is almost always accompanied by sensitivity to light or sound and nauseous, and it can last for hours or even days. It varies from person to person.
Many people also feel what experts call “Aura,” which is like a previous warning sign that the migraine is about to hit. It is a blur of light in vision or blind spots in the sightline. Sometimes auras happened during and after the migraine.
At Physio Logic, we treat migraines caused by:
- Eye Strain
- Cold Temperatures
- Cold/Flu Symptoms
- Bad Posture
It doesn’t mean that the previous are all the triggers. These are just the most common; in any case, fortunately, they can be avoided, and educate our patients on how to do this to help them feel better sooner. It is essential to understand that risk factors can be the cause too. We could say that family history, age, gender, or even hormonal changes are a risk factor to take into consideration.
Western Medication as Migraine’s Treatment
When you suffer migraines, the first answer is to take medicine either prescribed or find it over the counter, which are only temporary solutions to a more complicated issue. Besides, all medications have side effects that you don’t want to deal with.
The conventional western clinical treatment, for the most part, falls into two classifications:
- Pain-Relieving Medications: These medications are taken during headaches to treat the side effects and repress the problematic assault.
- Preventative Medications: These medications are handled consistently every day to lessen the recurrence or seriousness of headaches.
Doctors prescribe medications as needed, considering pain level, how disabling your migraines may become, and how frequent.
Side Effects of Medications
When taking medicines for an extended period, you are exposed to adverse side effects like weight pain, fatigue, insomnia, and digestive issues, to name a few. The medicines can help you relieve pain for a certain amount of time, but it will not help you heal from the inside to live a life free of pain in the long term.
This is why if migraines are frequently present in your life, you should think of a more convenient, natural root healing-oriented therapy to deal with chronic pain, reset your mindset and understand that medications are not the only answer.
