I’m not sure how heat and ice work for migraines. Is one supposed to be better than the other?

My migraines are always on my left side-temple, jaw, eye socket. I’ve been using ice packs but wonder if heat would alleviate pain better? I think in general ice is for reducing swelling and inflammation and heat increases blood flow. Which would be helpful in the head?

What are everyone's thoughts on Chiropractic care as a treatment option?

What are everyone's thoughts on Chiropractic care as a treatment option?

DH had to see a chiropractor for his back after car wreck. He told me 2 weeks ago to make me an appointment. I went today to see a different kind of dr.

I told DH to remember to ask :)
