Dr. Daniel Jacobsen, at Jacobsen Chiropractic, serving Beverly Hills, CA, offers a range of comprehensive chiropractic treatments suitable for various ailments and illnesses, including migraines.
What Is a Migraine?
A migraine is a neurological disorder that presents as a throbbing headache, usually on one side of the head, that may last a few hours or several days. A migraine is accompanied by other symptoms such as:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Sensitivity to light and sound
- Blurry vision
- Muscle weakness
- Confusion and disorientation
A migraine may have a sudden onset or develop gradually depending on the trigger, with the pain worsening gradually until it peaks and starts to decline. There are two main types:
- Migraine with an aura
- Migraine without an aura
An aura is a visual, auditory, or sensory disturbance that may include flashing lights, partial and temporary loss of vision, tinnitus, tingling or numbness, and muscle weakness.
What Triggers a Migraine?
Migraines affect both children and adults but are most prevalent in adult women. A migraine has a genetic component, but your menstrual cycle or hormonal changes, certain foods, including cheese and caffeine, stress and depression, lifestyle choices, and sudden environmental changes can also trigger it.
How Chiropractic Can Help Treat/Prevent Migraines
Migraine sufferers know that there is no cure for a migraine. Instead, these attacks require a preventative and supportive approach to mitigate symptoms and promote more rapid recovery.
Dr. Jacobsen at Jacobsen Chiropractic, serving Beverly Hills, CA, can help migraine and headache sufferers by providing symptomatic relief and improving how severe and often your migraines or headaches occur.
