Headaches are painful, and migraines are even worse. Migraines can cause severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on one side of the head and sometimes includes nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. The attacks can last for hours or days, and the pain can be so severe that it interferes with your daily activities. These will of course make you irritable and sometimes unable to function normally. Headaches and migraines is usually derived from something structural, and therefore proper treatment from a chiropractor can help you overcome them.
Whether you are dealing with a headache or a migraine the cause may be a structural issue. Research shows that spinal manipulation – one of the primary treatments provided by doctors of chiropractic – may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck. When the spine moves out of position there can be pressure placed on the surrounding nerves. This pressure causes the nerves to be compressed or irritated and this causes the muscles of the back, neck, and jaw to tighten.
This tightness directly leads to headaches or migraines. This repetitive tightness can also pull your bones out of alignment and increase the frequency of the headaches and migraines. Persistent headaches or migraines can be a sign that there are more serious problems in your spinal column. It is important to keep in mind that every other system in your body is impacted by your spinal health, therefore these issues need to be addressed as soon as possible.
