Using chiropractic adjustments and therapies we are able to help you treat, manage, and prevent headache pain without addictive painkillers. Find out more about headaches and migraines, and how chiropractic care can resolve these conditions.
The first question our chiropractor will ask you during your appointment for headache pain relief is about the type of headache you are experiencing. There are two main categories of head pain that include tension headaches and migraines. A tension headache is caused by muscle tension either in the neck, shoulders, upper back, face, or head. When your muscles are tense, this causes a throbbing pain across the front or back of the head.
On the other hand, if you have a migraine, the pain is in a distinct area. You will feel an intense throbbing pain, which is caused by constricting blood vessels. Along with headache pain, a migraine typically leads to nausea, dizziness, and sensitivity to light and sound. You may have migraines at random or on a routine basis.
As noted, a tension headache is caused by muscle tension. This is due to stress, bad posture, or vertebral subluxations. Each of these conditions can be effectively treated using chiropractic adjustments. A migraine headache is caused by blood vessels contracting and decreasing the amount of blood flow in the area. Triggers of migraines are more difficult to identify, but these can include food allergies, stress, lack of sleep, or changing weather patterns.
When you visit our chiropractor in Lake Worth for headache and migraine pain, we work to resolve the source of the problem. For example, if you have muscle tension, we recommend massage therapy to relieve the tension. For headaches associated with vertebral subluxation, we offer chiropractic adjustments to realign your spine. We can also help you identify triggers and provide lifestyle counseling if your headaches are caused by allergies, stress, or lack of sleep.
