Chiropractic Care Helps Patients Suffering from Headaches and Migraines Find Wellness

kilian_chiropractor_treats_headaches.jpgPatients 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.

Chiropractic treatment can help alleviate contributing factors and effects of a migraine, such as muscle tension, neck movement and help control postural issues. Maintaining proper alignment of the spine and focusing on the underlying source of headaches are important in keeping headaches at bay. Chiropractic care can also help reduce the frequency and severity of migraine attacks and headaches in many cases.

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.

Common Triggers and Symptoms of Migraines and Headaches

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.

Some patients suffer sensitivity to specific foods or preservatives that can also trigger a headache or migraine. Some foods known to contain preservatives are cheese, alcohol, nitrates in processed meats, monosodium glutamate and caffeine. Other common causes can be changes in barometric pressure from an approaching storm, skipping meals or changes in your sleep patterns. Without proper chiropractic care, other physical conditions could also arise. Headaches and migraines left untreated can also lead to other health conditions such as asthma, hypertension, sleep disorders and strokes.

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. 

Many patients also experience visual auras prior to the onset of pain. The aura could be flashes of light, black dots, jagged lines or bright colors. These are actually physiological warning signs that a headache is about to begin. Recognizing early symptoms and seeking chiropractic treatment can lead to a better level of wellness free from headache and migraine pain.
