Chiropractor Treatment for Headaches and Migraines
Migraines and serious headaches can be frustrating. While some head pain is clearly explainable, such as a concussion from an impact or a stress headache from tension or sitting in a bad position for a longtime, migraines might not have a clear cause. We at Whole Health Chiropractic in Issaquah, WA, can help provide headaches and migraine treatment.
Headache and Migraine Triggers
Some patients might realize increases in headache pain and frequency when there are weather changes. However, other patients might have allergies as triggers for their migraines. Smells may be an issue in patients, such as reacting to chemicals or artificial smells such as perfume with a migraine onset if exposed long enough. The cause might be hormonal. However, nobody knows the exact cause for migraines though there are different treatments that may be able to help.
Chiropractic Relief Covers Multiple Causes
A good amount of head pain and tension might have a direct relation to stress. Headaches can be frequently a direct or indirect symptom of chronic stress, especially when muscles tighten and lock up around the neck and base of the head. Poor diet can also contribute; insufficient hydration frequently causes a tightening of blood vessels and an increase in blood pressure, both of which may trigger headaches.
Injuries from trauma such as a car accident or sports injury can contribute to misalignment or nerve pinches that trigger headaches or migraines. Because a chiropractor focuses on the whole system versus just where it hurts, these old injuries with a medical history review and diagnostic review of mobility might identify the root cause of an impact.
For muscle lockup or old injury conditions, both massage therapy as well as adjustment may help to relieve pain, improve circulation, and reduce pressure. Nutrition and diet guidance is also another area chiropractors can help with too. Eating right and weight management are key topics our chiropractors work on regularly as one part of their whole body, holistic approach to long-term wellbeing.
