Has anyone had success with a chiropractor (or acupuncture) in treating migraines?

Several years ago I got significant relief from my migraines after just a few visits with a chiropractor. My stress often goes to my neck and shoulders and makes my headaches worse. So it made sense for me.

With careful avoidance of my migraine triggers, I've managed to minimize the migraines them for a long time. But now they're back and the nausea and visual disturbances are really bad. I have a very sore neck too, so I decided to try going to a chiropractor again.

Have anyone else found relief this way?

How about Acupuncture?

I have had several ppl tell me to see a chiropractor, even tho i have no back/neck problems. I do sit at a desk all day @ work, but I had migraines even when I was a teacher and playing with kids all day. They were actually worse back then! I have been contemplating acupuncture, but lmk if you try it!!! I just haven't tried yet bc I am on new medication and seems to be lessening the frequency of my migraines, but still wouldn't hurt to try!
