Symptoms of Migraines and Headaches

Headaches typically come with head pain in different areas and tension in the face. Migraines, on the other hand, migraines can cause a variety of symptoms. The primary symptom of a migraine is a headache. Others include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Pale skin color
  • Dizziness and blurred image
  • Fever
  • Feeling tired
  • Sensitivity to light, noise and smells
  • Tender scalp

Causes of Migraines and Headaches

There are many different factors that can cause headaches and migraines. These are some of the most common:

  • Hormonal changes in women: Variance in estrogen levels before or during menstrual periods, pregnancy, and menopause can induce headaches in women.
  • Drinks: Drinks, including alcohol and excessive caffeine like coffee, propagate migraines.
  • Stress: Stress garnered from work or home can induce migraines.
  • Sensory stimuli: Bright or flashing lights may trigger migraines. In addition, loud sounds and strong smells ignited by perfumes, smoke, and paint can induce migraines.

Chiropractic Care for Headaches and Migraines

During your first visit, Dr. Baker will ask about your symptoms, lifestyle, and the frequency of your head pain. Next, you will receive a complete evaluation to look for the root cause of your pain. We want to determine if anything is triggering your migraines. After that, our chiropractor will make a customized treatment plan for your headaches and migraines to improve your condition and wellbeing. Chiropractic care can also assist in mitigating the intensity and frequency of migraines.

Our chiropractor offers gentle, non-invasive treatments, including chiropractic adjustments. Realigning the spine and neck will alleviate tension and pressure in the body. This also helps your nervous system function better, which can help with headaches.

Other chiropractic treatments that we may use for migraines and headaches include:

  • Spine decompression
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Exercises
  • Acupuncture

For migraines, our chiropractor can also give you lifestyle and nutritional advice. Often times, things in your diet and environment can trigger migraines. Eliminating these factors will reduce the frequency of your migraines.
