Headaches seem to come out of the blue. For many people, they are a part of daily life. This doesn't have to be the case, though. In fact, chiropractors can provide treatment for headaches and migraines to help with relief.
Lambert Chiropractic Health Centre provides chiropractic care in Mississauga, ON. These are some of the ways our chiropractor may treat headaches or migraines.
Eliminating Headache & Migraine Triggers
One of the main goals of treatment for headaches and migraines is to eliminate the common causes and triggers. Addressing the root of the problem is usually the best way to get rid of the symptoms and resolve the issue.
Headaches and migraines may be caused by:
- Neck Muscle Tightness
- Drug Reactions
- Low Blood Sugar
- High Blood Pressure
You may be asked by our chiropractor to keep a journal of your symptoms and emotional factors. When you keep track of what you've done all day or what you've eaten, as well as when you've experienced a headache, you can more easily find the correlation. This helps you pinpoint the triggers so you can remove them from your life where possible.
Chiropractic adjustments are frequently used to treat tension headaches. An adjustment puts your spine into proper alignment so that your back is straight, and the other parts of your musculoskeletal system fall into their natural places. This relieves tension and inflammation in your back, shoulders, neck, and extremities. For people who have headaches caused by tension, this treatment option may prevent headaches from occurring so often. With frequent treatment and stretches to maintain proper alignment, you may be able to eliminate headaches altogether.
Cranial Adjusting and Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction
For the many people who come to our office with headaches, assessing the plates of the skull and their subtle movements for a possible link with headaches is important. Cranial adjusting techniques are another service our chiropractor offers to aid headaches. Temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or simply an issue in the jaw joints, may also cause headaches. Our chiropractor is trained to identify this concern in people suffering from headaches as well.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point therapy targets areas that experience pain seemingly at random. A provider may apply pressure at one part of the body to treat pain in another. These trigger points can be in the limbs but cause pain in the back, neck, or shoulders, for instance. The same applies to trigger points that might cause headaches. The trigger point could be in a completely different part of the body.
