Man suffering from a headacheThe Difference between a Headache and a Migraine

A migraine is a type of headache that doesn't often respond to traditional pain medication. Migraines involve a pounding headache, light sensitivity, nausea and often vomiting. They are typically treated with anti-nausea medication and preventative medication. Tension headaches and stress headaches can be easier to treat and don't involve the sensitivity present with migraines.

Common Causes of Frequent Headaches or Migraines

Headaches can occur for a wide variety of reasons. Too much stress, a lack of sleep, poor nutrition, a lack of exercise, sinus problems, bad ergonomics, and other issues can all lead to headaches or migraines. When you have tension in your shoulders, neck and upper back, this can lead to tension headaches. To address your headaches or migraines, it is necessary to figure out the type of headache you have and what is causing it.

How Chiropractic Treatment Helps Headaches and Migraines

Many headaches and migraines stem from problems in the neck. A visit to the chiropractor can help ease tension in your neck and surrounding muscles. Chiropractic adjustments help restore balance to your body, giving you the ability to heal naturally. When you have a sore neck, shoulders or upper back, chiropractic care addresses the pain and stiffness you feel. Gentle stretching, spinal manipulation, ultrasound, massage, and hot or cold therapies may all be used to help reduce the strain in your neck and improve blood flow. 

When you suffer from chronic headaches, it's time to get to the cause of the problem. Whether you suffer from spinal misalignment, or you need to learn better ergonomics for work, chiropractic treatment can help you feel better from headaches and migraines.
