Headaches are a relatively common occurrence for people. Their severity can range from mild to debilitating, depending on a variety of factors. Consulting a doctor for your headaches is advisable, especially with varying degrees of headaches that can make an at-home diagnosis difficult.
Consulting a chiropractor specializing in migraines and other variations of headaches might seem like an outside the box solution at first glance. However, a leading cause of headaches stems from spinal misalignments, which cause the nerves along the spine to become irritated and travel up the spine to the head and cause migraines. Getting a chiropractic diagnosis can help better address the root cause of your headaches.
Academy Injury & Health Center treats all different types of migraines. Our well-trained staff of chiropractors and doctors will help you get to the source of your headaches.
Cervicogenic headaches begin as a dull ache in your neck and radiate upward along the back of your head, and they tend to stick to one side. The pain you feel can also begin to affect your forehead, temples, and the area around your eyes and ears.
Cervicogenic headaches typically last anywhere from one day to one week and are often caused by an underlying issue in your discs, joints, muscles, or nerve disorders. Consulting your doctor for this kind of headache can help identify the underlying cause and address it accordingly.
Our chiropractors can help you with your headaches through spinal manipulation. As we help realign your spine, the nerves along your spinal column will no longer be under pressure, and you will begin to feel the pain dissipate.
Ocular headaches are caused by reduced blood flow or blood vessels spasming in your retina or behind your eyes. This type of headache often causes a temporary change in vision that generally returns to normal after an hour.
However, if you regularly get ocular migraines, getting a chiropractic opinion on the subject can help identify any underlying causes. Consulting your doctor about these headaches is the first step towards addressing the lingering issue.
If you have a history of neck pain or recently suffered trauma, it can be the root cause of your ocular migraines. Our chiropractic solutions can help readjust your spine and ease the tension in your neck, causing the frequency of your headaches to diminish.
Tension headaches are the most common type, but finding relief for them can be hard to find. Typically, tension headaches feel like there is a rubber band wrapped around your head, and the pain you feel ranges from mild to moderate intensity.
While the specific causes of tension headaches are unknown, we know that the pain triggers when your neck and scalp muscles contract. What causes them to contract isn’t as well defined, but they can be a response to stress, depression, anxiety, or a head injury, among other potential causes.
Episodic tension headaches usually last for 30 minutes; however, their effects may linger for up to seven days. Finding relief for tension headaches is a quest everyone can get behind, and the team at Academy Injury & Health Center can help!
