triggers that cause your migraines

Identifying the triggers that cause your migraines can help you to prevent migraine attacks. There are some key things that you can do to ensure you are not setting yourself up for a migraine attack.

  • Proper Sleep – sleep deprivation can trigger migraines. Sufficient sleep on a regular routine helps the body stay healthy.
  • Healthy Eating Habits – a drop in blood sugar can trigger migraines. Eat healthy including small meals and snacks throughout the day to keep blood sugar steady.
  • Hydration – Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated, as dehydration is another migraine trigger.
  • Relax – Try some relaxation techniques like deep breathing, meditation, or yoga.

Adjust Diet – Avoid caffeine, processed meats, alcohol, aged cheeses, and MSG, they can all trigger migraines

treatment methods

Sometimes incorporating all the above behaviors into your daily routine still cannot keep migraines at bay. There are other methods of treatment that you can consider, including massage therapy and spinal adjustments. Studies show that spinal adjustments are more effective than pain medications, and do not have the long-term negative effects. All medications have long-term side effects, especially the addictiveness of opioids.

When your migraines become unbearable and you cannot control the pain, don’t resort to pain medications that do not deal with the root cause of the migraines. Contact Pain Stop Clinics, where our doctors excel at helping to treat migraines. Spinal adjustments can often eliminate migraine headaches by resolving the cause of the migraines, such as pinched nerves from spinal misalignment.
