Suffering From Headaches & Migraines?
Headaches are felt in your temples, behind your eyes, at the base of your skull, or somewhere else in your head.
Your head contains some of the most essential parts of your body to help you function. The brain that controls your body, your eyes that allow you to see, the ears that allow you to hear, and so much more.
Since it is such a major control center of your body, it is imperative that when something feels off, you figure out the issue. Headaches can be caused by injury, stress, trauma, strained blood vessels or nerves, dehydration, pain from other areas such as the neck, and so many other possibilities.
Whether or not you feel as though this issue is serious or not, headaches can be an indication that something else is going on in your body. Our brains have adapted over time to find ways to alert us when there is a malfunction in our body that requires attention.
Once the initial irritation has been experienced, it can progress into a much more severe issue that can cause major problems in your health. Left untreated, headaches can progress into migraines or neuropathy issues. We don’t want you to be in any condition where you feel limited due to the effects of something such as a headache.
Often, a nerve in your cervical spine has become pinched or irritated in a way that requires Chiropractic care to be fixed. Rather than masking your symptoms with painkillers or medications, we are able to gently manipulate your spine back into place so that it can allow proper function of your nervous system and eliminate the cause of your headaches.
Suffering From Migraines?
Being a migraine headache sufferer, you know how difficult it is to get relief. You are suffering, that is a fact. But what can you do about it to actually fix the problem?
Migraine headaches can be completely debilitating. Everything gets harder with migraines and just getting through the day can be not only a feat in itself but can also bring on waves of total exhaustion.
And if you get a migraine bad enough you will often feel nausea and end up vomiting. Migraine headaches can affect anyone, although women tend to have a higher prevalence of migraines than men.
Often migraine headaches can present in two ways:
This typically presents as a migraine headache with the presence of an aura, which often looks like a lot of lights or dots in your vision. Sometimes migraines will cause other disruptions to your vision. Classic migraine headaches often begin with what is called a prodrome (essentially a warning you are about to get a headache). This prodrome often consists of an increasing blind spot surrounded by flashing lights. Often this will last for about 30 minutes before being replaced by a debilitating headache that can last anywhere from 1-3 days.
This typically presents as a migraine headache without the presence of an aura. This means you still get all the symptoms except for the flashy lights or dots. Common migraine headaches, without an aura, are often felt on one side of the head and are recurrent. There are no neurological or visual symptoms, but nausea and vomiting can accompany the headache. Regardless of which migraine headache you suffer from, they can be equally debilitating.
There are many possible reasons why migraines occur which is why it is important to understand the exact cause of your migraine headaches so that the appropriate treatment can be administered.
