Living with frequent headaches or migraines can make everyday life difficult. At North Port Chiropractic, we have years of experience providing patients with chiropractic adjustments for headache and migraine relief. Following are questions we frequently receive regarding the causes and treatment of headaches and migraines.
What Causes Headaches?
There are several potential causes of headaches and migraines. Spinal misalignment due to poor posture or a whiplash injury is one possible cause. These put pressure on the base of the skull and contribute to the pain in your head. While prescription medication can effectively mask headache and migraine pain, it does nothing to address the root cause of either.
It is also possible that stress or illness is contributing to your headaches. This is challenging to deal with. Working with our chiropractor can help you to come up with a comprehensive plan that enables your body to work as intended. This may help you to find relief from other health issues you are experiencing as well.
Our chiropractor will evaluate your musculoskeletal system to determine the underlying causes of your headaches and migraines and create a chiropractic care plan to address them.
How Can a Chiropractor Help You Find Headache Relief?
Our chiropractor can treat the underlying cause of the headaches or migraines, which can also result in neck pain. Patients usually experience significant relief following their first adjustment. These adjustments are cumulative, and you should notice more relief with each visit to our chiropractor. Once the spine is back in proper alignment, our chiropractor will focus on maintaining alignment, minimizing the chances of headaches and migraines returning in the future. Over time, chiropractic care will reduce your pain, improve your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural healing process.
Our chiropractor will also work with you to come up with other life changes that might help to provide you with relief. Potential recommendations include massage therapy, special stretching programs, corrective exercises, dietary changes, and lifestyle advice. All of these will enhance the effectiveness of chiropractic care.
