Basics of Headaches and Migraines

Headaches and migraines have different causes and several factors may be contributing to your pain. A basic headache occurs in many different situations. In addition to mild or severe pain, they can also sometimes causes a feeling of pressure on your head. Headache treatments with chiropractic care focus on addressing the cause of your symptoms, which can usually be linked to a spinal anomaly or another physical condition.

Migraines differ from headaches by causing further symptoms and discomforts. It may cause nausea, vomiting or you may see halos around objects. The pain associated with a migraine is usually more severe than a headache and may require professional treatment to manage the symptoms.

Common Causes of Headaches and Migraines

A key part of headache treatments is determining the underlying cause of your pain. Migraine treatments differ from headache treatments because the cause of the pain differs. By focusing on the factors contributing to your pain, our chiropractor can address the discomfort.

Common factors contributing to migraines or headaches include:

  • Stress and tension in your shoulders
  • Physical pain in the neck and shoulders, which may stem from injuries to the area
  • Sinus pressure and allergies
  • Certain foods, particularly when you have migraines
  • Environmental factors, such as loud noises, sudden lights or other problems in the surrounding environment
  • Physical health concerns, such as low blood sugar, dehydration or excessive exercise that causes physical complications
  • Eye strain

The exact cause of a headache depends on the situation and your physical health. It may relate to medical conditions, medications you take, problems in your environment or even personal behaviors. By clarifying the root cause of your discomfort, Dr. Rhodes can provide the individualized treatment you need to reduce your pain.

Treatment Options

To start treatment Dr. Rhodes will determine the cause of your headaches. He may provide a spine and neck adjustment to help with headache and migraine relief. The adjustment improves your spinal function and alleviates tension in the neck and shoulders. By reducing the tension, you relieve pressure on the area and reduce the pain.

He may also recommend decompression therapy or massage therapy depending on the root cause of your headaches or migraines. The treatments focus on specific concerns, such as tension in your muscles or pressure on your nerves. Dr. Rhodes will develop a personalized treatment plan and may recommend lifestyle changes to reduce headaches in the future.
