We understand how life-changing migraines and chronic headaches can be. Sometimes, the pain is unbearable and makes everyday tasks seem undoable. Here are answers to common questions patients ask us at Sports Chiropractic, Health, and Rehab in Palm Bay, FL.
What Are Some Common Headache Triggers?
Many situations cause headaches. Physical or emotional stress will cause a headache, especially a tension headache. A neck injury or neck pain could be causing your headache. Additional causes include weather changes, allergens, caffeine, alcohol, and even medication. Light, sound, hormonal changes, nerve pain, or a specific food or beverage can trigger migraines.
If you do not know what causes your headaches or migraines, start keeping a journal of what you are doing, what you eat, your mood, the weather, and when your headaches start. You may notice a pattern. Written notes will save you from relying on your memory when you meet with our chiropractor.
What Is a Tension Headache?
A tension headache occurs when there is muscular tension in your neck or shoulders. Musculoskeletal strain or cervical misalignment cause tension in the neck and shoulder area. The muscular tension can also be caused or worsened by emotional stress.
What Are Some Common Migraine Symptoms?
Migraines produce a throbbing pain in the head, usually on one side or the other, but sometimes both. The pain is moderate to severe. Many migraine sufferers also experience nausea and dizziness. Changes in vision and smell or auditory and visual hallucinations sometimes precede a migraine.
Can Children Get Migraines?
Children can get migraines at any age. Signs of a migraine may include crankiness and crying. Children sometimes vomit and experience diarrhea when suffering a migraine. Many parents concentrate on stomach issues when these symptoms occur. Migraines can be hereditary, so if your child is suffering from these symptoms, find out your migraine family history if you don’t already know it.
What Kind of Headache Treatment Can a Chiropractor Provide?
Chiropractic care for headaches and migraines includes many types of natural treatments and therapies. Massage therapy is effective in treating many issues, including tension headaches. If you suffer from migraines, we can develop a care plan that fits in with the medicines and other care you already receive. Nutritional counseling, lifestyle advice, toxin analysis, and toxin removal can all be part of our treatment plan.
