Severe headaches and migraines can be a debilitating problem that cuts into your quality of life and productivity. It can be challenging to find pain management solutions. At Spine One Chiropractic Center serving Egg Harbor, Northfield, Atlantic City, and Cherry Hill, NJ we can help you to find drug-free pain management options for headaches and migraines.
What Causes Headaches and Migraines?
It is important to remember that headaches differ significantly from migraines. Headaches are usually caused by a constriction of blood vessels in the brain. Headaches can also be caused by tension being held in the neck and face muscles. Migraines are considered a neurological dysfunction and can affect your hearing and vision. The cause of migraines is still being studied, but some experts believe that migraines can be caused by reactions to certain foods, stressors, and environmental toxins.
Chiropractic Care for Headaches and Migraines
Whether you are suffering from common headaches or migraines, chiropractic care is helpful when dealing with these issues. Tension headaches are caused by excessive tension held in the head, neck, and shoulders. Chiropractic adjustments can be used to relieve this tension so that the tension does not manifest as headaches.
In some cases, headaches and migraines can be brought on by stress. Our chiropractor can customize a treatment plan for you that will help you deal with stress in your life. Spinal adjustment and massage therapy are both very helpful in reducing your stress levels.
Spinal adjustments are very helpful for those suffering from migraines. Spinal adjustments will restore your spine’s natural alignment, allowing blood, oxygen, and nutrients to flow more freely to the brain and other parts of the body. This increase in blood and oxygen helps the brain function more efficiently and is beneficial to anyone dealing with neurological dysfunction.
What to Expect When You Visit a Chiropractor
When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will assess your overall health and wellness. Our chiropractor will also consider your medical history. If necessary, x-rays may be done to determine if you are dealing with any kind of back injury which would prevent you from receiving spinal adjustments. After we have determined the root cause of your headaches and migraines, we will create a chiropractic care plan to address it.
