Migraines, a primary headache disorder, affect a significant portion of the population, with women being three times more susceptible, especially during their premenopausal years. Despite their prevalence, migraines remain a challenging condition to understand fully, leading to underdiagnosis and undertreatment.

At Sun Chiropractic, we delve into the complexities of migraines to offer a conservative approach. Let's explore the multifaceted nature of migraines and how Sun Chiropractic's approach aligns with a comprehensive, patient-centric vision.

Understanding Migraines

Migraines often present with auras, lasting from five minutes to one hour, preceding the onset of severe, throbbing pain on one side of the head. Other common symptoms include light and noise sensitivity, nausea, vomiting, and neck stiffness. Classified as one of the most debilitating types of headache, migraines rank seventh among health conditions concerning years lived with disability.

At Sun Chiropractic, we recognize the intricate connection between migraines and various comorbidities, emphasizing a personalized approach to address the root causes.

Pharmaceutical Solutions

While pharmaceutical interventions are common for migraine management, long-term efficacy may diminish over time or there may be undesirable side effects.

At Sun Chiropractic, we advocate for sustainable solutions to complement any pharma options your Dr. may suggest. Lifestyle modifications such as maintaining a healthy diet, stress management, regular exercise, quality sleep, and proper hydration form the cornerstone of a conservative approach.

The Role of Neck Pain

Sun Chiropractic acknowledges the commonality of neck pain in migraine sufferers, often linked to forward head posture, trigger points in cervical muscles, and musculoskeletal disorders affecting the neck and upper back.

Numerous studies highlight the positive impact of chiropractic care in addressing trigger points, improving posture, and restoring normal joint movement.

Our patient-centric approach aligns with the findings of a 2021 international study that emphasized the benefits of chiropractic care for female migraineurs, revealing a deeper understanding of the interplay between stress, muscular tension, posture, and migraines.


At Sun Chiropractic, our commitment extends beyond conventional migraine management. We prioritize a conservative, patient-centred approach that incorporates lifestyle modifications, addresses comorbidities, and recognizes the intricate connection between neck pain and migraines. Embracing the findings of recent studies and an evidenced-based approach, chiropractic care aims to reduce the intensity, frequency, and duration of migraines, offering hope for those seeking sustainable solutions to migraine misery.
