Headaches & Migraines Q & A
Which Symptoms are Related to a Migraine?
If you suffer from migraines, which are essentially extreme headaches that occur on a regular basis, you are probably well aware of the radiating head pain that comes as a direct result of this condition. However, Dr. Clayman has witnessed that sufferers can also experience nausea, dizziness, fatigue, body numbness, sensitivity to light or noise, neck pain and much more.
What Causes Migraines and Headaches?
Sometimes, environmental conditions or liestyle choices can bring about a headache, but migraines can often be sourced back to a misalignment of the spine. Due to repetitive stress, an injury, or even developmental issues, the spine can move out of place and put pressure on the surrounding nerves. When these nerves become irritated, they send confused messages to the muscles in your neck and jaw telling them to tense up, which can resut in a headache or a migraine.
What’s even worse is that over time, this tightness can actually cause the misalignment in your body’s structure to worsen. The more your spine’s position moves, the more frequent migraines can become, ultimately making symptoms even more intense and sometimes unbearable. Fortunately, with proper chiropractic care from Dr. Clayman, these issues can often be corrected.
How Can Chiropractic Treatment Help?
Due to the nature of what can cause migraines and headaches, chiropractic treatment can be quite beneficial to those who suffer from such a condition. By eliminating possible causes of your head and neck pain, your chiropractor will begin to work towards a treatment plan that aims to correct the root of the problem. With a series of gentle yet effective adjustments, Dr. Clayman can help reduce stress on your nervous system, which can ultimately reduce your pain.
