Does Chiropractic Help With Visual Or Ocular Migraines?

Yes, it can. Most people know about general or common  migraines, but there is a type of migraine called an ocular migraine, visual migraine, or retinal migraine. With this type of migraine, there is not always a headache. There is usually only a visual disturbance, or in some cases, a loss of vision in 1 eye.

Ocular migraines can be just as debilitating as common migraines. Although a headache is not always present, the visual disturbances can be a big problem for the patient. The visual changes of an ocular migraine may cause a patient to see spots, shapes, or other images that are not present to others. This could affect obvious daily activities, like driving, working, and taking care of children.

Chiropractic adjustments help many patients overcome headaches every day. Research shows that Chiropractic Adjustments help to correct mechanical dysfunction that, in some, causes migraine-causing pressure. According to The journal Of Manipulative Therapies, there are over 20 articles published, that show the positive effects of migraines and Chiropractic Adjustments. Migraines, of any type, or headaches cannot be taken lightly. The medications that help treat them can be debilitating all by themselves! Some medications cause memory loss, and difficulty with general problem solving. Amitriptyline can affect memory loss to such an extent, that patients forget their appointments in our office every day! I have to call their neurologist to discuss options for them. Once the patient has been treated with Cox Decompression, and Acupuncture, they report fewer migraines, whether they be ocular migraines, retinal migraines, visual migraines, common migraines, or any other type of migraines. Their neurologist finds that the patient won’t need the medication once they are responding to their Chiropractic Care, and Acupuncture.

This is a life-changing experience for most migraine sufferers. Medications, , ocular migraines, visual migraines, retinal migraines, common migraines, or any of the other types of migraines are debilitating, and difficult to live with. Once patients receive Chiropractic Adjustments and Acupuncture, the realize they’ve been suffering long enough.

If you or anyone you know suffers from ocular migraines or any other type of migraine, please make an appointment for a 15 minute complementary consultation with me.
