Headaches / Migraine Treatment

Chiropractic Care For Headaches/migraine

A Study by NCBI says that many people worldwide, around 95%, have experienced headaches at some point in their lives. The primary symptom of a headache is usually pain, which can feel like throbbing, constant, sharp, or dull sensations in the head or face.

Contrary to common belief that the brain causes headaches, it’s often the muscles, joints, and blood vessels around the head and neck that are responsible. Many headaches result from issues in the neck joints, and chiropractic care can be an effective treatment option.

Chiropractic adjustments provide a natural and drug-free approach, making them an excellent option for treating migraines. If you’re looking for headache treatment in Mill Creek, consider our chiropractic clinic. Learn more about the causes, symptoms, and treatment options on this page.

Symptoms of headaches

Headaches are often accompanied by more than just a pain in the head and neck. Much of the time headaches are also associated with nausea, light sensitivity, eye pain, jaw pain,  fatigue, and decreased concentration.

  • Depression, anxiety, and irritation
  • Random episodes of vomiting and nausea
  • Pain behind one ear or eye

  • Seeing spots or flashing lights
  • Temporary vision loss
  • Increased sensitivity to light and sound

Causes of headaches

There are two main causes of headaches which are internal and external factors. We need to understand also the additional factors that might be the cause of this pain.

The additional causes of headache include:

  • Internal factors: neck issues, neurological conditions, vision problems
  • External factors: smoking, poor diet, stress, alcohol, dehydration
  • Specific infections and hormonal changes contribute internally
  • Allergies and extended computer usage are external triggers
  • Differentiate headache types: tension, cluster, menstrual migraines
  • Caffeine consumption also plays a role in headache development
