Difference Between Headaches and Migraines
When you feel head pain, it can be difficult identifying whether it's a headache or migraine. Headaches cause pressure and pain that can vary in frequency. They often affect the forehead, back of the head, or the temples. Common causes of headaches include anxiety, stress, whiplash, and muscle tension.
Migraines produce intense symptoms that can be debilitating. Symptoms often include severe pains in the head, nausea, light sensitivity, vomiting, and seeing flashing lights. Common causes of migraines include weather changes, hormonal fluctuations, and bright lights.
How We Can Help
Our chiropractors use various techniques to treat headaches using a combination of chiropractic maneuvers on different parts of the body, spine, neck, arms, and legs. Our joint mobilization therapy helps realign joints that are out of place, causing pain and headaches. Spinal manipulation is effective for neck-related headaches using various hands-on techniques that adjust the neck, back, arms, legs, and spine.
Migraine treatment often combines chiropractic care and nutritional counseling. Certain foods can easily trigger a migraine, depending on the patient's conditions. Our chiropractors can design a diet that will help you avoid trigger foods and include ones that do not aggravate migraines. Using a combination of physical exercises, nutrition management, and other chiropractic techniques, our team can help reduce the frequency and intensity of your migraines.
