Headache and Migraine Causes
Headaches have a variety of causes. Stress and tense muscles are among the most common causes of headaches. However, headaches can also be caused by issues like injuries that are still lingering, putting pressure on your neck, and causing serious pain you don't associate with headaches. Migraines also have several causes, including certain health issues. Foods, smells, and bright lights can also be triggers for migraines. Identifying triggers for migraines is an essential part of finding the best way to treat them.
The Difference Between Headaches and Migraines
Migraines tend to be more severe than most headaches. They can last for a few hours or even days. Migraines can cause a variety of side effects, including nausea and vomiting. Migraines cause severe throbbing pain, usually on one side of the head. Headaches may come and go over the course of weeks or months.
Headache and Migraine Treatment
Chiropractic care works to naturally treat the root cause of a patient's headaches or migraines. One option is hands-on adjustments to promote the alignment of the spine. This treatment relieves tension that often contributes to headaches and other types of pain. Sometimes our chiropractors will perform trigger point therapy to find specific sources of pain. If there is an area that seems to be a trigger point, our chiropractors will put pressure on it to break up the knot.
Massage therapy also provides tension relief. Our massage therapists will work on your soft tissues to promote tension relief and blood flow to the affected area. As a result, you will leave the session with mobile, flexible muscles and a stress-free mindset. Our chiropractors can also recommend lifestyle changes to improve your physical and nutritional health. These often include modifications to your diet that help you avoid common triggers for migraines.
