Most people will suffer from headaches or migraines at some point in their lives. Recurrent headaches and migraines can lead to lowered quality of life, make it impossible to get out of bed, enjoy the day, and even attend school or work. At Marianna Health & Wellness, P.A. in Marianna, FL, we provide chiropractic treatment to help patients find relief and return to the activities that they enjoy.

The Differences and Similarities of Headache and Migraine Pain

It’s important to understand the differences between headaches and migraines to determine which treatment you may need. Headaches are often a dull, throbbing pain that can last anywhere from several hours to several days. Sometimes, headaches will be caused by tension in the neck muscles or poor posture. Migraines are more intense than regular headaches and cause sensitivity to light and sound as well as nausea. Pain from a migraine is usually felt in one region of the head but can spread and affect the entire head.

What Causes Headaches and Migraines?

Headaches and migraines can be caused by a variety of factors, including stress, hormones, diet, allergies, or environmental factors. In some cases, there is no identifiable cause for headaches or migraines. Our chiropractor will take the time to discuss your medical history and lifestyle in order to find out what may be causing your pain. Once the cause has been identified, we can create a customized treatment plan to help reduce the discomfort.

Chiropractic Treatment for Headache and Migraine Pain

Our chiropractor uses various techniques to help relieve headache and migraine pain. These methods include spinal manipulation, massage therapy, stretching exercises, trigger point therapy, and ultrasound therapy. Depending on your individual needs, our chiropractor may also recommend lifestyle changes, such as avoiding certain foods and managing stress levels. With the help of our team, you can find relief from headaches and migraines and live a pain-free life.

Headaches and migraines are not to be taken lightly.  They effect many people in our area, and we are here to help.  Medication is the traditional treatment for migraines; however, for many people, the medication is not enough.  Instead of just treating the symptoms, it is important to find the source of the issue.  People with both headaches and migraines have found relief through chiropractic care.  Aligning the spine removes pressure on the nervous system, which controls everything in the body.  With proper treatment, it is possible to permanently overcome debilitating migraines.  Our team has been helping people end their struggles with headaches and migraines for many years.
