Migraines account for approximately 10% of all types of headaches. 3.4 million women and 1.1 million males suffer from 1 migraine attack per month. Migraines follow a hereditary course with 70% of migraine suffers having other family members who are also affected. These types of headaches often coexist with muscle tension and cervicogenic factors; this often contributes to the frequency and intensity of the migraine. These headaches tend to reach the peak of intensity after 30 minutes. Migraines are commonly accompanied by nausea and vomiting.
Migraines also tend to make the person sensitive to sound and light. Classic migraines are different from common migraines due to the actual headache is preceded by neurologic disturbances which indicate a migraine is about to take place. These disturbances include alterations in the person’s vision such as; zigzag lines, blind spots, numbness or tingling of the lip or hand, problems with balance, and even loss of consciousness. Clinical trials have been conducted on chiropractic’s effectiveness in the management of migraine headaches and they’ve been shown a remarkable improvement.
