Will seeing a chiropractor help with my migraines?

Hi!
I’ve been suffering from auramigraines for over two years now. Usually would only get one every couple of months but I’m now experiencing them a couple of times a week.
I have a spinal curvature/scoliosis in my upper back between my shoulder blades.
I’m wondering if anyone has had experience with this and migraines.
I am a bartender so I work on my feet 4 nights a week as well.
Wondering if I should see a chiropractor regularly and if that might help reduce the frequency of my headaches.

  1. Hi realagentbunny,

    Thank you for your question. I'm sorry to hear you've seen an uptick in migraine attack frequency, that's frustrating.

    When we experience a change in our migraine symptoms and/or patterns, it's always a good idea to discuss this with the doctor to make sure everything checks OK. If you haven't done this I would encourage you to do that as soon as possible.

    I'm not sure what the chiropractic indication is when diagnosed with "spinal curvature/scoliosis" and is something else that can be discussed with your medical team. You may also want to look into cervigogenic headache, which you can read more about here: https://migraine.com/blog/some-headaches-are-caused-by-neck-problems/.

    Keep me posted on how your conversation with the doctor goes,
