Migraines can be a real pain in the head – literally. A vast majority of people who visit Chiropractors experience frequent headaches. Although frequent migraines are a common indicator of a far more serious condition, the pain can almost always be relieved through acupuncture. Whether it’s a migraine or a tension headache, acupuncture can fulfill the role of a preventive measure against future occurrences.

At Lakeside Sports Chiropractic Center and Motorsports Rehab in Cornelius, we have a trained professional staff that can help ease your headache pain through acupuncture treatment.  If you think acupuncture could be the solution to your migraines, contact Lakeside Sports today to schedule an appointment.

A multitude of studies have been conducted to explore the effects that acupuncture has on migraine attacks. The results have been conclusive in terms of acupuncture being a preventive measure.

When you think of acupuncture, the image of a person having numerous needles stuck into him probably comes to mind. Despite that mental image being as unsightly as it appears to be, it isn’t that far from the truth. However, it’s definitely much less painless than it seems.

Acupuncture fundamentally revolves around the penetration of extremely fine needles into targeted points. This encourages blood flow and dilates the surrounding blood vessels. This improved circulation allows the body to shift itself into a relaxed state, which is an effective prevention method for migraines.

Since most headaches are caused by emotional factors like stress, acupuncture can be considered to be a direct approach against migraines.

Contrary to popular belief, the most beneficial acupuncture points for headaches aren’t located around the head. Instead, using those acupuncture points may even temporarily worsen the condition. The most effective points are actually found within the limbs. This means that the head and neck areas are pretty much entirely untouched, avoiding worsening any existing pain.

We understand that migraines can be severe to the point of physical immobilization. They can be incredibly delicate conditions to handle, and the slightest mistake may end up worsening the condition. However, our years of experience have granted us the ability to administer acupuncture treatment for migraines and headaches flawlessly.

At Lakeside Sports Chiropractic Center, our approach is carefully designed to suit various types of patients with unique circumstances.  Acupuncture may seem to be an unorthodox method of dealing with head-related pains, but it has proven itself to be an astonishingly reliable, effective, and safe solution.
