Diamond State Chiropractic in Newark, DE Answers Headache and Migraine Pain FAQ’s
At Diamond State Chiropractic in Newark, DE, we know that patients often struggle with headaches and migraines. These painful conditions can debilitate patients and lead to a poor quality of life. Fortunately, we provide headache & migraine pain relief techniques that can help.
What Are Some Common Causes of Migraines and Headaches?
It is common for people with the misalignment of parts of the musculoskeletal system to begin struggling with headaches. Headaches are simply a way for the body to alert you that there is something wrong with the musculoskeletal system so that you can begin to take action to correct those issues. Some headaches, of course, are linked directly to injuries like a concussion or head injury, while others have no obvious cause.
It's common for pinched nerves in the neck to produce headaches as a symptom. For instance, tensions headaches occur because of stress that results in clenching the teeth and straining the muscles in the neck. This pulls the vertebrae out of alignment, leading to neck pain and headaches.
What is the Difference Between Headaches and Migraines?
Unlike headaches, migraines are a result of constricted blood vessels. Spinal misalignments can result in poor communication between the central nervous system and the brain, which could be a cause of migraine headaches.
How Can A Chiropractor Help Reduce Migraine and Headache Pain?
At our office in Newark, we offer all-natural, noninvasive care. Chiropractic care helps realign the spine and joints, correcting the subluxations that can cause them. On top of this, we recognize that headaches can be triggered by outside stressors, so it's our goal to help patients avoid the triggers that bring on headaches for a better quality of life between appointments.
For headaches caused by injuries such as whiplash, chiropractic care includes spinal adjustments along with exercises and stretches to help strengthen your neck and reduce inflammation and pain. Exercises also improve flexibility and balance, reducing the likelihood of future episodes of pain. In addition to spinal alignment and exercises, we focus on nutritional support to reduce your contact with triggers and lifestyle advice that supports a healthy posture and eliminates strain on the neck.
