Different Types of Migraines

Migraines are among the three most predominant illnesses globally, according to the Migraine Research Foundation. At Boca Health & Wellness Center in Boca Raton, we give effective chiropractic care to migraine patients to help them live pain-free lives.

Types of Migraines

Migraine with Aura

With this type of migraine, you go through an aura before you the headache begins. An aura is a combination of neurological disturbances, including dizziness, blind spots, and slurred speech. You may experience the aura between 5 to 60 minutes before the headache starts.

Migraine without Aura

70 to 90% of people who have migraines suffer from migraines without aura – that’s why it is known as common migraine. It is characterized by a throbbing pain that begins from one side of your head. When you move around, the pain gets worse. This type of migraine can last between 4 hours to 3 days.

Migraine Aura without Headache

Also known as the silent migraine or acephalgic migraine or painless migraine, migraine aura without headache does not have the actual headache pain. However, you will still experience aura symptoms such as visual disturbances, difficulty speaking, weakness, and losing strength in your muscles. This type of migraine might last up to 1hour.

Vestibular Migraine

This type of migraine is also common among migraine sufferers. Its symptoms include vertigo, trouble with balance, and dizziness. It can take a few seconds to days before the migraine subsides.

Other types of migraines include abdominal migraines, status migraines, and menstrual migraines. If you are experiencing migraines, you can visit our Boca Raton chiropractor at Boca Health & Wellness Center for effective treatment.

How Does Chiropractic Care Treat Migraines?

When you visit our chiropractic center, our chiropractor will perform a comprehensive exam to learn the symptoms and circumstances of your migraines. For instance, neck strain in the workplace might be what is causing your migraine. Our chiropractor will then decide on a proper and effective treatment plan according to your individual needs.

Some of the chiropractic techniques our chiropractor may use to reduce the pain and frequency of your migraines include posture correction exercises, adjustments, lifestyle recommendations, soft tissue therapy, and corticosteroid injections. Chiropractic care will help you say goodbye to migraines.
