Headache / Migraine Treatment in Huntsville

Headache and Migraine Treatment 

If you are experiencing migraines that come with throbbing pain, distortion, and nausea, you are not alone. Approximately 39 million Americans experience migraines, disrupting their day-to-day lives. Migraines can be debilitating and often last for long periods of time.

If you have been suffering from migraines and tension headaches, you may have tried taking painkillers to ease symptoms. However, pain medications don’t typically last long and can come with a lot of side effects. Chiropractic treatment, on the other hand, offers long-term solutions for managing headaches and migraines. At Millar Chiropractic Clinics in Huntsville, AL, our chiropractic team can relieve your headache and migraine pain using natural, drug-free remedies.

Are Headaches and Migraines the Same?

Many people confuse migraines with headaches. However, differentiating between the two is vital in determining effective treatment. Headaches cause pain on the head, upper neck, and face, and typically affect the whole head. On the other hand, migraines have an intense headache accompanied by some of the following symptoms:

  • Nausea
  • Visual changes
  • Sensitivity to light, sound, and smell
  • Tingling on your arms or face
  • Throbbing headache on one side of the head

Causes of Headaches and Migraines

There are various causes of headaches, ranging from mild to severe. Some include hunger, stress, exhaustion, sunlight exposure, and conditions like high blood pressure, brain tumors, and many more. Unlike headaches, the exact cause of migraines is unknown. There are some common triggers that can increase the occurrence of migraines, including:

  • Hormonal changes during pregnancy, menstruation, and ovulation
  • Some foods and drinks, like caffeine, wine, and aged cheese, can trigger migraines
  • Changes in weather
  • Stress
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Some medications

Chiropractic Treatment for Migraines and Headaches

Our chiropractors will do a full physical examination and look at your medical history to determine the cause of your headaches or migraines. After diagnosis, we may use spinal manipulation to alleviate migraine pain. When your spine is misaligned, it compresses spinal nerves, causing nerve irritation, thereby triggering migraines. Spinal manipulation aims to align your spine, reducing pressure on the surrounding nerves. This deters inflammation and improves the overall function of the nervous system. We may also suggest nutritional or lifestyle changes to avoid triggering headaches and migraines.

Chiropractic treatment tries to treat the root cause of migraines instead of masking symptoms by using medications. Our treatments can reduce the frequency, duration, and intensity of migraines and tension headaches.
