What Causes Headaches and Migraines
Migraines are a neurological problem involving many nerve pathways and chemicals found in the brain. The headache pain is only one symptom of a migraine event. Other symptoms include nausea, vision problems, dizziness, fatigue, and light sensitivity. Migraine is often a source of chronic pain for those who have them.
Headaches are often caused by a change in the blood pressure within the head. Blood pressure in the brain is affected by the restriction of the blood vessels. A regular headache will cause pain that is only centralized in the head, and there will be no other accompanying symptoms.
Can a Chiropractor Help?
When most people experience a headache or a migraine, they reach for over-the-counter (OTC) medication. For most headaches, these types of medications are effective. However, migraines rarely respond to OTC pain relievers. Traditional doctors treat migraines with powerful pain medications. There are harsh side effects, however, to some of these drugs. There are more natural options, though. A chiropractor not only treats back pain issues but can help patients deal with many types of pain including headaches and migraines.
What Treatments Are Used?
One of the most effective types of treatment is spinal adjustment. Although a spinal adjustment is often considered a treatment for back pain, recent research shows that spinal adjustments can have positive effects on many aspects of the nervous system. When the spine is out of alignment, it will cause pressure to build up along with the nervous system. This can affect the brain and cause neurological problems such as migraines.
Spinal adjustments are also helpful in keeping blood steady to cut down in the instances of traditional headaches as well. Other helpful types of treatment can include massage therapy. Relieving the tension in the neck and back muscles can help cut down on tension headaches.
