Migraine and Tension Headache Relief with our West Jordan Chiropractor
Some 45 million people in the U.S. experience the miseries of headache pain each year -- and about 17 percent of the population suffers from migraine headaches, which are even more agonizing than common tension headaches. If you're experiencing chronic headache issues that keep from enjoying your life or doing your job, you'll be delighted to learn that Utah Spine & Accident Clinic can provide safe, natural migraine and tension headache relief.
The Debilitating Pain of Headaches and Migraines
When people use "headache" as a generic term, they're almost always referring to tension headaches. These headaches live up to their name by stemming from muscle tension in the neck. When muscles near the base of the skull tense up, they pull on membranes that transmit pain signals throughout your head.
Migraines are more complicated, in every sense of the word. Abnormal neurotransmitter balances and nerve signals seem to cause changes in cranial blood vessels. This complex chain of events causes devastating head pain, nausea, light and sound hypersensitivity, and other disabling symptoms. To make matters even more frustrating, migraines can be triggered by all sorts of stimuli. They can be caused by physical tension, just like tension headaches -- but they can also stem from certain foods, weather conditions, hormonal imbalances, emotional stress, and even changes in sleep habits.
Non-Pharmaceutical Solutions From Our West Jordan Chiropractor
If you've been taking medication for your chronic headaches, you know that any relief you get from these drugs is short-lived at best. For more significant relief, turn to the drug-free solutions at Utah Spine & Accident Clinic. Our West Jordan chiropractor can make chiropractic adjustments to your cervical spinal alignment which can ease muscle tension in the neck. Massage and essential oils can also be used to relax the tight muscles that cause tension headaches.
Chiropractic care also works for migraine sufferers. Study participants have reported that they experienced both fewer migraines and less painful migraines as a result of chiropractic adjustments. We can also provide vital dietary and lifestyle advice to help you identify and avoid some of the common migraine triggers that surround you in your daily life.
