CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR HEADACHE AND MIGRAINE PAIN MANAGEMENT AND RELIEF
All-natural pain management techniques are an integral part of our chiropractic care, whether we employ them for beating headaches, migraines, back pain, or other uncomfortable symptoms. Spinal adjustments are one of those techniques that can be effective for a number of conditions, with headache and migraine pain being one of them. Adjustments work to realign the spine using gentle manipulations, resulting in a correction of existing subluxations, rebalancing of the body, pain management and relief. Adjustments of the vertebrae in the neck and upper back can be highly effective for tension headaches, particularly those that stem from the neck area.
Tension headaches account for about 75% of headaches
They can last anywhere from minutes to days, and typically start slowly. Described as a dull ache on one, or both sides, of the head; or as if a tight band were around the head or behind the eyes. They’re often caused by stress in the spine and muscles of the back and neck. Tension headaches can be effectively treated using therapies like trigger point injections and chiropractic adjustment.
About 25 million migraine sufferers live in the United States, and 75% of these are women
Causing intense, throbbing head pain, migraines also include symptoms like nausea, sensitivity to light and noise and visual symptoms like flashing lights. They can be caused by changing blood flow in the brain, but migraines can also have a genetic component. Because identifying dietary triggers is a big part of treating migraines, at Williamson County Integrative Medicine migraine headache treatment includes nutritional counseling. Chiropractic adjustment, massage therapy, trigger point therapy, and medical procedures when appropriate are also effective ways to combat migraines.
Cluster headaches usually occur on one side of the head behind the eyes
Somewhere around 1 million people in the United States suffer from cluster headaches and most of these sufferers are men. Cluster headaches, like migraines, are related to blood flow in the brain, and they often occur one or more times a day for several days, but then don’t happen again for months or even years. Something unique about this headache is that it usually occurs at night.
