Before visiting us, we invite you to keep reading to learn how chiropractic treatments can help with headaches and migraines!


The Differences Between a Headache and a Migraine

A headache usually causes mild-to-moderate pain. Along with that, the pain from a headache can be felt on one or both sides of your head. Since it can also be associated with tension in the neck or shoulders, it may be characterized as a tension headache.

Migraines, on the other hand, occur due to abnormal brain activity and cause more severe symptoms than headaches. The pain is also often restricted to one side of the head and may be pulsating. Some additional symptoms of migraines include:

  • Nausea
  • Blurred vision
  • Fatigue
  • Light sensitivity
  • Loss of appetite

Common Causes of Headaches

A headache can occur due to a variety of causes. Some of these causes include the following:

  • Stress
  • Diet
  • Dehydration
  • Sinus problems
  • Certain medications
  • Caffeine withdrawal

Common Causes of Migraines

There are various factors that can trigger a headache. Some causes of migraines include:

  • Changes in environment
  • Loud noises
  • Hormonal changes
  • Lack of sleep
  • Stressful events
  • Genetics

Treatment for Headaches and Migraines

At our practice, we utilize various treatments, such as chiropractic adjustments and complementary soft tissue methods, to reduce headaches and migraines. While spinal adjustments can be effective for headaches and migraines, you may also feel lethargy and some soreness in the region that was adjusted. These side effects are temporary and should go away within 24 hours.

In addition, our chiropractor offers recommendations regarding proper posture and the use of ergonomic devices to prevent headaches and migraines. We may also provide nutritional advice, therapeutic exercises, and stress management techniques that can help reduce your symptoms.
