safe-migraine-care-for-pregnant-women-in-vancouver-waMore and more people are getting Vancouver WA migraine relief with the help of upper cervical chiropractors. Migraines can be excruciating. Migraineurs can attest to the debilitating pain and discomfort of this condition. Imagine the added pain migraines can bring during a woman’s pregnancy. Some women experience cramping and bloating.

Migraines can be absolutely debilitating and extremely hard to endure, most notably for pregnant women. As the baby’s delivery date comes near, migraine attacks may increase, and the intensity worsens. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to find a safe and effective form of care that is ultimately safe for the baby.

Most medical doctors recommend acetaminophen (Tylenol) or intake of no more than four cups of caffeine each day. If you’re pregnant and have migraines, seek a doctor’s approval before attempting to make this move. Also, only take the recommended dosage for you. Pregnant women must bear in mind that whatever they ingest would also go into the baby’s system.

More Options for Migraine Care

If you wish for Vancouver WA migraine relief, here are some options to consider:

  • Breathing exercises
  • Biofeedback
  • Massage
  • Stretching exercises, such as Pilates
  • Acupuncture
  • Water aerobics

These alternatives aim at helping people reduce stress because it is one of the primary causes of migraines. Therefore, avoiding as much pressure as possible and focusing on exercises that alleviate migraines can help pregnant women. 

Some more ways of getting migraine relief: Lie down in a dark and cool room. Then, use a cold compress on your forehead or the back of your neck. If a migraine patient can do all these before their migraine goes full-blown, it will have a high chance of preventing the migraine attacks from worsening.

Migraine Relief Through Proper Neck Alignment

There is another area that achieved great success in helping pregnant women with migraines. Here, we introduce upper cervical chiropractic care’s NUCCA technique. In so many cases discovered, a misalignment in the C1 (atlas) or C2 (axis) vertebra can cause migraines. This kind of misalignment can be corrected through NUCCA chiropractic, which employs gentle and precise adjustments that allow the bones to realign on their own. It is often all that is required to lessen migraines and even prevent future migraine attacks.
