Patients who experience recurring headaches and migraines can benefit from the preventative treatment of chiropractic care. If you suffer from painful headaches, knowing what causes the pain and seeking proper chiropractic care can alleviate head and neck pain and could be your first step to enjoying life without them.
Chronic migraines can last a few hours, while some patients experience days of discomfort and pain. Determining what causes the pain and getting proper treatment at our Vancouver chiropractor clinic could give you the relief, wellness and good health you desire.
While the exact causes of what triggers migraines or headaches are not known, changes in blood vessels and nerve cells of the brain are often to blame. Other common triggers for headaches or migraines are bright lights, neck pain, changes in weather and other environmental factors. External factors that can trigger headaches and migraines vary. Emotional stress is one of the most common, along with anxiety, worry, fatigue or excitement that can release chemicals in the brain and cause the onset of a severe headache.
Headaches vary among different individuals. While some people may experience them once a year, others may suffer migraine headaches every few days. The most common symptom on an oncoming migraine is a throbbing headache that begins as a dull ache, shifting from one side of the head to the other. Sensitivity to light, sound or odors are also common symptoms. Once the headache progresses, patients may experience nausea or lack of appetite. Some patients become pale, dizzy and experience changes in vision.
