Many women frequently suffer from migraines and require pharmacotherapy to alleviate and control their symptoms. Unfortunately, many of these therapies are contraindicated when a woman becomes pregnant leaving her to find alternative treatments to manage her symptoms. Osteopathic medicine provides a unique perspective for treating migraines without the use of medication. Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) can provide hands–on treatment to help alleviate migraine symptoms and improve the quality of life as a woman’s body changes throughout her pregnancy.
