Any number of factors including hormones, tension, food, and more can trigger migraines and headaches. Additionally, migraines can also be caused when a nerve in the back or neck is pinched or impinged. Chronic and recurring headaches, such as migraines and tension headaches, can become quite serious. These headaches can be debilitating, causing severe throbbing, nausea, irritability, and sensitivity to bright light and sound.
If your headaches and migraines interfere with your day to day life, you should make an appointment to see a chiropractor for assessment and treatment. Migraines that occur more than a couple of times a year, are increasing in severity, or if they haven’t responded to other treatments are signs that professional chiropractic care is needed. The treatments available from the chiropractors at Quality Chiropractic should be considered as a first course of action for migraines, even before other traditional forms of medicine, as chiropractic treatment is drug free and natural, with no side effects.
The chiropractors perform manual exams to identify specific impingements or subluxations responsible for the headache. Chiropractic care reduces inflammation and irritation associated with headaches and migraines by releasing nerve impingements and promoting circulation in the head and neck. Deep tissue massage and adjustments release tension in muscles and break up painful trigger points in the shoulders and upper back. In addition, the doctors at Quality Chiropractic educate their patients by providing lifestyle guidance to improve posture, alter work environments, and teach them other stress reduction techniques to improve overall wellbeing. Patients learn therapeutic exercise and stretching techniques to practice at home too, protecting their health and preventing future headaches and migraines. If you suffer from headaches or migraines that disrupt your life, make an appointment at Quality Chiropractic for effective relief.
