Headache & Migraine Relief: FAQ

What Are the Common Causes of Headaches?

Several factors may trigger a headache. For example, some people experience headaches and migraines from certain foods, poor posture, stress, and poor sleep habits. Others experience headaches when working on the computer for extended hours or from changes in the weather. Seeking treatment from a neurologist or chiropractor can help ease the tension in the body, which is one of the most common causes of headache pain. 

Can Stress and Tension Cause Migraine Headaches? 

Stress and tension are two of the most commonly reported causes of headaches and migraines. However, these two causes are easily treated through minor lifestyle changes and regular visits with a chiropractor. Additionally, seeing a massage therapist as part of your chiropractic care treatment plan can help reduce stress and tension, helping alleviate headache pain. 

How do Migraines Differ from Headaches?

Migraines have different symptoms than ordinary headaches and typically cause pain on one side of the head. Additional symptoms often accompany migraine pain include nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and spots appearing in the visual field. In addition, some people who suffer from migraines say they experience a strange feeling before becoming affected by the migraine pain. 

How Can a Neurologist Chiropractor Help with Headache Relief? 

A neurologist specializing in chiropractic care may be able to help provide you with migraine relief. The chiropractor can perform manual adjustments to help realign spinal structures, which can press on the muscles and nerves in the neck and upper back, causing headaches. Additionally, trigger point injections can help relieve inflammation, offering headache relief.
