Migraines and Lifestyle Choices
Published on under Headaches
The diets associated with lower inflammation can also aid in weight loss, which is important because carrying excess weight can also stimulate inflammation in the body. A systemic review presented in 2019 at the annual meeting for the Endocrine Society concluded that weight loss can reduce migraine headache frequency, intensity, duration, and disability. In addition to its role in weight loss, exercise can also reduce stress, which is another driver of inflammation.
Living a healthier lifestyle isn’t easy, especially after years or decades of unhealthy habits. Your doctor of chiropractic can answer nutrition and fitness-related questions and even show you exercises that may be a better fit for your current situation. If aches and pains are getting in the way, your chiropractor can provide treatment in the office to help restore normal motion so that you can stay active—especially when it comes to the cervical spine as dysfunction in the neck has been shown to play some role in the migraine process.
Thousands of Doctors of Chiropractic across the United States and Canada have taken “The ChiroTrust Pledge”:“To the best of my ability, I agree to

and mainstream Chiropractic care.
I will not use unnecessary long-term
treatment plans and/or therapies.”
