Treatment for Headaches & Migraines

What are Headaches and Migraines?

Headaches and migraines are where the pain is felt for a period of time in the head area.  Migraines are more severe than headaches.

Tension headaches are the most common type of headaches a person can experience. Pain that is mild to a little more that comes and goes is typical of this type of headache. 

Migraines are much more severe types of headaches. They last a few hours to a few days and can occur one to four times in one month for some people. Besides pain, people can experience nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, sensitivity to noise, smells, and light, and lack of appetite. One or more of these symptoms can occur during one episode. 

What Causes Headaches and Migraines?

There are a variety of causes of headaches and migraines. Some of the causes include stress, certain sicknesses, genetics, and the environment you live in. 

Changes in sleep, taking large amounts of medication, depression, and emotional stress can all trigger a migraine. Certain sicknesses, such as the common cold, sinusitis, fever, or infection can trigger a headache or migraine.

If headaches and migraines run in your family, don't be surprised if you are plagued with one or both in your life. Certain smells, tobacco, weather changes, and other environmental conditions can cause one or both to occur. 

What is the Treatment for Headaches and Migraines?

There are several different types of treatments for migraines and headaches. Chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy are common ways to improve your condition. Chiropractic treatment involves realigning the neck and spine with one another. This takes pressure off muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissue. Having pressure taken off unwanted areas of the body, such as on or near the head, can reduce the symptoms of migraines and headaches as well. 

In massage therapy, the specialist uses long, circular strokes with their arms and hands all over the body, relieving sore muscles and other pain points on the body. Using massage therapy and chiropractic adjustments can help ease the symptoms of headaches and migraines. Please contact our chiropractor for more information. We are here to help!
