How to Put an End to Your Frequent Migraines

Migraine headaches are different from your average headache; they can severely limit your activities and wait out the pain until it's over. What's worse is migraine headaches may become frequent, further impacting your life.

Frequent migraines are complicated for you to manage alone, and medications don't always do the trick – but what else can help? Chiropractic care is an excellent alternative that allows you to address specific issues that may be fueling your migraine.

At Pinnacle Health Chiropractic, Dr. Jason Ablett and his team specialize in chiropractic care, including trigger point injections and spinal manipulations to ease chronic pain. Dr. Ablett has tremendous experience treating complex issues such as frequent migraines through conservative chiropractic care.

Various conditions and lifestyle choices may lead to frequent migraines, and knowing the cause helps us give you the treatment your body needs. Some of the prevalent causes of migraines include:

In some cases, you can take lifestyle steps to decrease the frequency and intensity of migraines. Some of the lifestyle tips Dr. Ablett recommends for controlling frequent migraine headaches include:
