Chiropractic Solutions for Migraines and Headaches
Do you suffer from migraines and/or headaches?
For headache and migraine sufferers, addressing everyday, simple tasks can be a tremendous challenge.
While most adults and an increasing number of adolescents are impacted by occasional headaches and migraines, the number of chronic daily headaches has skyrocketed in the last decade alone, impacting roughly 45 million individuals every year, while the number of individuals suffering from regular migraines has risen to 25% of the population.
Regardless of the frequency, headaches and migraines can prove to be debilitating, painful, and disruptive to daily life for anyone who suffers from these conditions.
The symptoms of headaches vary depending on the type.
While basic headaches include a constant, gnawing, and unrelenting pain that continues for extended periods, tension headaches and sinus headaches are easily identified by their specific location in the head.
Additionally, cluster headaches are known for their intensity, elevated frequency, and often limited to one side of the head. These headaches can occur for weeks and are often severe. Migraines, while often mistaken for cluster or tension headaches, are a specific type of headache known for visual and audio auras, nausea, and severe sensitivity to light.
How can chiropractic treatment help with migraines and headaches?
Chiropractic care has been used to treat headaches and migraines of varying levels of severity and frequency for decades and has consistently outperformed drug therapy and over-the-counter medication safely and effectively.
Unlike drug therapy or medication, chiropractic care helps address the cause of the headaches and migraines from the start – while analgesics and other prescriptions simply mask the symptoms while they are happening. Chiropractic work has been known to greatly reduce, and often eliminate, migraines and headaches in patients of all ages.
