Migraines and Headaches Q & A
About Migraines and Headaches
Headaches, especially migraine headaches, are often characterized by intense, debilitating pain that is difficult to get rid of. One of the more unknown but highly effective courses of treatment for all types of headaches is chiropractic care, which targets the trigger areas for these specific efforts.
What is the Difference Between a Migraine and a Headache?
The difference between a regular headache and a migraine is a matter of intensity. Unlike everyday headaches, migraines are often accompanied by severe symptoms such as light sensitivity, unclear vision, and occasional nausea. Migraine sufferers also commonly report severe tension in their neck, alongside sinus pain and pressure. It is these symptoms that point to a possible cause of migraines, as well as the efficacy of chiropractic treatment.
How Can I Treat a Migraine?
Recent research has indicated that migraines may originate in the cervical spine and upper back muscles. Knowing the sources allows chiropractors like Dr. Meade to address these issues to reduce the frequency and intensity of your migraine headaches. Manipulation of your cervical spine over several appointments will work to address the underlying cause of your migraines, allowing you to return to your life.
What About Sinus and Tension Headaches?
Sinus and tension headaches are closely related to migraines, as their sources stem from the same area. In fact, many migraines could be categorized as tension headaches due to the neck tension that often accompanies migraines. Because sinus and tension headaches are so similar to migraines, the same type of chiropractic care can be used in their treatment, often to very rapid results.
