A headache is characterized by pain in the head or even the neck. A migraine is a type of headache that often has symptoms of pain and pulsing on one side of the head. If you suffer from a migraine, you might also experience sensitivity to light and noises, nausea and other symptoms. Migraines can be different than headaches in that they often last for hours, or even days. Any type of headache can reduce your quality of life, and the severity of migraines can really get in the way of your day to day activities, including family responsibilities and work.
Headaches and migraines can have numerous causes, including foods, such as cheese, red wine, and MSG (food taste enhancer) , hormones, stress, weather, dehydration and physical activity. Headaches can also be caused by pain in the neck and by tension in the body.
When vertebrae are out of place, problems can result with nerves and muscles, causing headaches and other symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments realign the vertebrae of your spine, causing your body to communicate better with itself and hopefully relieving your headaches and migraines. Some studies have found that spinal manipulation can even improve headaches that are caused by neck pain and by tension in the body. Chiropractic can also relax muscles to calm muscle spasms, which can be a source of tension in the body. We also use heat and massage, acupuncture, and other treatments that can provide headache pain relief.
In addition to relieving headaches, chiropractic care is a wellness system that can improve the overall health of your body, so it might help you overcome allergies and deal better with stress and other stimuli that might have previously caused a headache. Our chiropractic migraine doctors can also make important lifestyle suggestions that can help prevent and treat headaches, including dietary changes, posture changes and exercises.
Chiropractic treatment can help migraine headaches in many of the same ways that it helps other types of headaches. One study found that chiropractic care can be just as effective as migraine medication, with longer lasting relief. Many people, including participants within studies, have found great relief from migraines with chiropractic migraine treatment.
