When you get these headaches, where do you get them? (Neck, eyes, etc?)
Chiropractors are hit and miss – you could get a good one or you could get a quack. It doesn’t sound like a chiropractor can help much with what you’re describing. Think about it – how is cracking your back going to change something hormone induced? I’ve had headache issues my whole life, been to a chiropractor, and it didn’t really make much difference, in fact the chiropractor GAVE me headaches once by forcing my neck.
If your migraines are hormonal, do you mean when you’re PMSing? If so, a common reason is water retention. Another common cause is Magnesium deficiency – magnesium deficiency is actually very common, especially in American diets where people don’t eat enough whole grains and greens. If you’re getting these headaches when you PMS, and you find you crave chocolate when you PMS, try upping your magnesium intake. For both water retention and magnesium deficiency, eating clean, unprocessed foods and a balanced diet will help.
If you find the headache is in your neck, that’s a tension headache, and another common type of headache. I’m prone to tension headaches, ESPECIALLY when I’m PMSing. The root cause of this is the muscles around your neck knotting up. Poor posture, being hunched over a desk, and a bad pillow all can contribute to this. Even carrying a heavy purse can trigger these. If you have a desk job, take frequent stretch breaks. Get a new pillow if you need one. A Yoga dvd like Crunch Candlelight Yoga will be really good for stetching out your muscles and both curing and preventing headaches. If your neck is your issue, DO YOGA, or some other sort of stretch-based exercise. For tension headaches, nothing but stretching fixed this for me. Once I stop exercising, they come back, so this is something that requires constant maintenance for me.
All of the above have helped reduce my headaches. I think the most important step for you is to identify what KIND of headache you have, and figure things out from there. Unfortunately, I found what cures headaches isn’t usually addressed with a quick fix like a chiropractor, but lifestyle changes. If you’re getting frequent headaches, that’s your body’s way of telling you you’re doing things wrong.
