What Causes a Headache?
There are a lot of causes for headaches but one is pressure on the spine, muscles, and supporting structures in the neck. The tightness and stiffness this creates can quickly translate to headache pain. A misaligned upper cervical area, which is the neck and upper back, can refer pain to the head, creating an uncomfortable headache that can be hard to get rid of without the right type of care.
What Is a Migraine?
A migraine is a more severe type of headache that can be harder to treat. Many migraine sufferers have sensitivity to light and become nauseated from the pain they're experiencing. In some cases, they also experience an aura before the migraine occurs or right when it starts. Treating migraines can be important for quality of life, especially if they're frequent occurrences.
How Does a Chiropractor Help?
A chiropractor can help by addressing the source of the pain to help reduce the chances of headaches and to help them be less severe over time. By finding the areas of the neck or upper back that's out of alignment, it's possible to realign the area to help improve the number of headache-free days you experience.
What Chiropractic Care Do You Need?
Understanding what kind of chiropractic care is best for you and your needs is the first step toward getting treatment for your headache or migraine concerns. A chiropractor on our team might conduct a limited physical examination of the affected area and learn about your history in order to find the best way to support you for the future.
