If you're a severe headache or migraine sufferer you've probably tried all sorts of remedies and treatments to fight off the headaches. While everyone is different and finds relief in different ways, chiropractic care has offered relief to millions of migraine sufferers. If you are suffering from headaches and migraines in Huber Heights, OH, or the surrounding areas, Pike Chiropractic Therapy Center can help.
What Causes Headaches and Migraines?
Migraines and tension headaches are caused by muscle contractions in the head or neck. All sorts of triggers can spark those muscle contractions, and the triggers vary from person to person. Even if you know your triggers you probably can't avoid them all the time, so you need a remedy that reduces or eliminates the severe muscle contractions and stops the headaches head-on. That's where chiropractic care comes in.
How Can a Chiropractor Help Relieve Headaches and Migraines?
The main benefit of chiropractic care compared to other treatments is that it addresses the root cause of your pain rather than simply treating the symptoms. A chiropractic treatment plan can be created to relieve or reduce your migraines or severe headaches. Spinal manipulation can relieve stress points in your body, reduce inflammation, reduce lower back pain, and increase joint mobility. Our chiropractor can then offer advice on how simple lifestyle adjustments can help prevent future headaches. For example, improving the ergonomics of your work station can improve your posture and reduce the stress on your spine, reducing the number of headaches and migraines you experience caused by spinal stress.
In some cases, our chiropractor may recommend an x-ray or MRI to help identify underlying conditions that are causing your headaches or migraines. With additional information, our chiropractor can recommend chiropractic treatment in tandem with massage therapy, physical therapy, and other services.
Our chiropractor can also help you understand how other lifestyle factors may be contributing to your migraines and headaches. Nutritional factors, like not getting enough vitamins and nutrients in your diet, can lead to an increase in your headaches and migraines. Our chiropractor can offer advice on simple diet changes to reduce your pain. They can also offer advice on relaxation and sleep techniques to reduce stress, another underlying cause of pain for many chronic headache and migraine sufferers.
