Do You Suffer From Headaches or Migraines?

Millions of Americans suffer from chronic headaches and migraines. According to Medical News Today, Over 28 million people experience migraine headaches during each year, and millions more suffer from chronic headaches.

 

Whether you suffer from weekly or even daily pain with its debilitating distraction, or from the sudden impact of migraines, leaving you unable to walk, communicate clearly, drive, or cook dinner, chiropractic care can offer treatments to relieve your pain.

Headaches and Migraines

Headaches are easy to diagnose, but more difficult to cure. A migraine, though it includes a headache, is far more complex. The basic headache only involves aching or pain in the head itself, with possible irritation behind the eyes or sinuses. Migraine headaches are far more severe and can last days or even weeks. You can seek treatment at our south Tulsa clinic to deal with a current headache or a migraine or see us occasionally to help prevent them from developing in the first place.

Symptoms of Headaches and Migraines

There are many symptoms that indicate you are dealing with a migraine rather than just a simple headache. Dr. Travis can work with you to help you determine the cause and nature of your symptoms. While headache symptoms tend to be simple, here are some symptoms that may indicate you are dealing with a migraine:

 

  • Depression and irritability one to two days before a migraine starts
  • Light and Noise intolerance
  • Yawning that is uncontrollable
  • Stiffness of the neck
  • Loss of vision and phenomenon like flashing lights
  • Hallucinations
  • Throbbing or regional head pain
  • Indigestion and vomiting
  • Fainting or feelings of lightheadedness
  • Difficulty with spoken or written communication
  • Pain that is unresponsive to pain relievers

Causes of Headaches and Migraines in Tulsa

Persistent headaches and migraines may stem from a number of causes from blood sugar imbalance to stress, to food allergies, but many people suffer from headaches and migraines due to structural issues in the spine. When the bones in the spine are out of position due to developmental issues, traumatic injury, or repetitive stress, it can put constant or intermittent pressure on surrounding nerves. These nerves become compressed or irritated and cause muscles of the back, neck, and jaw to tighten.

 

This muscle tension can cause sudden headaches or migraines that may become persistent over time if left untreated. Since spine health is so important to overall well-being, it is very important to deal with these issues when symptoms begin to arise.

Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches and Migraines in Tulsa

For years, chiropractic has been the path for many people to finally find help for headaches and migraines. Because of his extensive understanding of the spine and its connection to the nervous system, Dr. Travis is often able to find the actual source of your pain, when traditional treatments only address symptoms.

 

Chiropractic care begins with a thorough evaluation to rule out other possible causes and examine your spine for misalignment and damage to discs and nerves. Using subtle, gentle spinal adjustments, chiropractic can often provide instant relief, and over time can correct the cause of headaches and migraines, providing lasting results that can drastically improve your quality of life!
