Types of Migraines


A migraine is a painful headache that typically comes with vomiting, nausea, and sensitivity to light. Migraines can last for hours or days, but you can visit a chiropractor for long-term relief. At Northwest Wellness Center in Dublin, OH, we provide chiropractic care for migraine relief and other musculoskeletal pains. Here are some of the common forms of migraines that can be treated with chiropractic care.

1. Menstrual Migraines

Menstrual migraines are caused by hormonal changes in women’s bodies around the time they have their periods. Menstrual migraines are why many women say they have painful headaches when menstruating. Chiropractic treatments can promote hormonal balance and headache relief.

2. Silent Migraines

Silent migraines are associated with problems in your nervous system and cause vision problems. They typically last less than an hour and symptoms include tunnel vision, black dots or flashes of light in your vision, and tingling or numbness on one side of the body.

3. Vestibular Migraines

This type of migraine is common among persons with a history of motion sickness. Vestibular migraines are accompanied by vertigo, vomiting, balance problems, and nausea.

4. Abdominal Migraines

Abdominal migraines are more common in children and usually become classic migraine headaches with time. They are commonly accompanied by stomach pain and vomiting. You should take your child to a chiropractor for an examination and therapy immediately after they start exhibiting symptoms of an abdominal migraine.

5. Hemiplegic Migraines

This form of migraine manifests with weakness in one side of the body, a short period of paralysis, numbness, vision changes, and dizziness. These symptoms can also indicate a stroke; therefore, you should see a doctor immediately.
