What are Migraines?
If you have never had a migraine, you may be convinced that these are simply intense headaches. While this is partially true, migraines are a specific kind of headache with certain symptoms that make them distinct. You will know you have a migraine, as theses cause recurring throbbing or pulsating pain on one side of your head.
Some people who suffer from migraines notice that they have “auras” before a migraine, such as nausea, light sensitivity, and sound sensitivity. While there are many ways to lower the severity or frequency of migraines, chiropractic care can be beneficial in providing you relief. When you visit our chiropractor, we can determine the type and cause of your headaches or migraines. Since there are many different types of headaches, the way these respond to chiropractic care can vary. During our consultation, we will review your systems, perform diagnostic tests, and determine the necessary treatment.
How Does Our Chiropractor Treat Headaches and Migraines?
Depending on your goals and needs, our chiropractor may recommend anything from spinal adjustments to massage. If you have tension headaches, chiropractic treatment can be especially effective. A massage can be highly effective in relieving the pain you are encountering in your neck, shoulders, and head.
Spinal adjustment involves aligning the spine to eliminate nervous system problems and pain. While this can help with neck pain, it can also help with headaches. If you have headaches and neck pain, this method can reduce the discomfort. Massage therapy can help in reducing tension headaches. If you notice that stress is a major trigger for your headaches, our team can discuss how massage therapy can make a difference in how you feel.
