Treatments to Relieve or Manage Migraine Headaches

Updated: Jan 15, 2023

Migraines are throbbing headaches that can cause excruciating pain, nausea, and sensitivity to surroundings in certain people.

Migraines are frequently persistent, with pain ranging from a few hours to several days.


When dealing with a headache, the first thing that comes to mind is to take over-the-counter pain medication. However, a more natural approach to headache relief would be chiropractic therapy, which, without prescription, is a successful treatment for different types of headaches.

Although the complete cause for migraines is somewhat unknown, the stress they create may be due to weather, harsh lights, smoking, extreme cold or changes in altitude or atmospheric pressure. Stress itself can cause a migraine or tension headache.

For many headache sufferers, chiropractic spinal manipulation is an effective headache therapy for relief from migraine headaches. Adjustments can reduce the number of headaches, migraines, or tension headaches.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy may help reduce migraines' frequency, intensity, and duration. It can also help reduce muscle tension and improve circulation, which may help alleviate some of the symptoms of migraines. Massage may also help reduce stress and promote relaxation, which can help manage migraines. Some research suggests that massage therapy may be most effective when combined with other treatment methods, such as medication or relaxation techniques. It's a good idea to speak with our massage therapist before starting any new treatment for migraines.


Acupuncture dates back to traditional Chinese medicine, which involved the insertion of thin needles into specific points of the body. It stimulates the body's natural healing abilities and promotes physical and emotional well-being. Some research suggests that acupuncture may effectively reduce the frequency, intensity, and duration of migraines. It may also help reduce muscle tension and improve circulation, which may help to alleviate some of the symptoms of migraines. Acupuncture may also be effective in reducing stress and promoting relaxation, which can help manage migraines.
