Magnesium and Migraines with a Side of Chiropractic Care

A great many people are what doctors refer to as “migrainers”. This is a term that simply means that you have migraines for a certain amount of time or a certain number of times every month. If you suffer from migraines, you know just how seriously they can impact your life. Like many other disorders, however, they can appear in different people in many different ways. There is no one way to have a migraine, although it does normally involve a severe headache with photosensitivity, noise sensitivity, dizziness, nausea, and possibly even spells of passing out.

A recent study was done in Iran which showed that there might be a connection between people who suffer from migraines and their magnesium levels. While this study was relatively small, with only one hundred people, there has also been other research done which shows similar results. In this study, fifty people who suffer from migraines and fifty people who have not had bloodwork done and there was a nearly .25mg/dl difference found between the two groups of people in regards to their magnesium levels. It should be mentioned that there was no difference found in the magnesium levels of people with migraines between or during their attacks.

Some headache experts have begun prescribing magnesium for those who suffer from chronic migraines in an attempt to curb the symptoms that are experienced. Migraines are no small issue when it comes to those who have them. If you or someone you love suffers from them, you will know exactly what I mean. These can also morph into different forms of migraines depending on stimuli and the symptoms may change from those listed above into even more serious ones. There are cases where people who have not had migraines for years after treatment began to have different forms of them with symptoms that they had never before experienced. This is often terrifying, as they are not used to having these issues anymore, let alone with these changed symptoms.

One good thing for you to know is that chiropractic care is often recommended for migraine sufferers. If you deal with the symptoms listed above, come into DiBella Chiropractic and we will see if we can help you get back to your normal life and habits through the use of spinal and neck adjustments.
