Millions of Americans suffer from headaches and migraine pain. Some people experience mild headache discomfort, while others may have debilitating pain associated with migraines. By getting chiropractic adjustment and holistic care treatment, you can reduce the number of headaches and migraines. Our chiropractor at Reimer Wellness Center in Los Altos, CA, can help relieve headache and migraine symptoms.
What Are Migraines?
Migraines are neurological conditions characterized by headaches and sensitivity to light, sounds, and smells. Migraine pain is typically limited to one side of the head and is accompanied by a throbbing sensation. Migraines can start suddenly, while others slowly begin and increase as the day progresses.
What Causes Migraines?
Several factors can trigger migraines, including stress, environmental conditions, and genetic factors. Other factors that cause headaches and migraine pain may include hormonal changes, poor sleep, certain foods, dietary habits, alcohol use, weather, smells, and certain health conditions. If your migraine symptoms remain consistent or you are experiencing several in a month, it could be a sign of a more significant health condition. It is best to see a medical professional or chiropractor when experiencing chronic headaches and migraine symptoms.
Can Our Chiropractor Help with Headaches and Migraines?
Our skilled chiropractor can help relieve symptoms of headaches and migraines using manual therapies, such as massage and spinal manipulation. Depending upon the severity of the pain and symptoms, our chiropractor may recommend massage, spinal manipulation, acupuncture, or lifestyle changes. In addition, regularly seeing our chiropractor can help treat the root cause of migraines and headaches without needing to continually take over-the-counter pain medications or prescription drugs.
Can Spinal Misalignment Cause Migraines?
Spinal misalignment causes stress and pressure on the body's muscles, nerves, and joints. This pressure can occur in the neck and spine, which can cause headaches and migraines. Visiting our chiropractor for a chiropractic adjustment can help reduce stress and inflammation within the body, which can also help alleviate symptoms associated with headaches and migraine pain.
