Learn more about how headaches are caused and the treatments our Beaverton chiropractors offer for this type of pain.
What is the Difference Between a Headache and a Migraine?
A headache is the result of contracting muscles located in between the neck and the head. When these muscles contract, often due to muscle tension or misalignment, you have a dull pain throughout the shoulders, neck, and/or head. For migraine pain, this is a throbbing, intense pain that tends to strike in specific areas of the head. You might have migraine headaches on one side of your head or in a pinpointed location.
What are the Common Causes of Chronic Headaches and Migraines?
Muscle tension is one of the primary causes of chronic headaches and migraines. This muscle tension can be associated with stress, poor diet, lack of circulation, or inflammation in the muscles. Other causes of headaches can be a change in environment temperature or humidity, as well as being overstimulated by sound or sights.
How Can a Chiropractor Help Manage and Treat Headaches and Migraines?
Our chiropractor can address muscle tension using massage therapy. From there we will use chiropractic adjustments to realign the musculoskeletal system. This aids in reducing inflammation and increasing circulation of healthy blood cells. By getting regular adjustments we can help prevent chronic headaches and migraine pain.
