Tension Headache and Migraine Treatment

The sensitivity, the throbbing and pain: tension headaches and migraines can debilitate you for hours at a time. You can’t concentrate and you definitely can’t work until these headaches pass.

If you’re often sidelined with tension headaches and migraines, you should visit a chiropractic center in NYC for treatment.

Tension Headache

Understanding Tension Headaches and Migraines

Tension headaches and migraines are not one and the same. With a tension headache, it may come on seemingly out of nowhere. You’ll have throbbing in your temple as well as muscle pain, moodiness, and exhaustion.

With a migraine, everything is more intense. You may notice a prodrome, a kind of aura that signifies an impending migraine. You probably won’t be able to stand bright lights or loud sounds until the migraine passes. You may also have feelings of numbness and weakness as well as stomachaches and vomiting.

What Causes Headaches and Migraines?

The causes vary depending on whether it’s a tension headache or a migraine. Tension headaches are also known as stress headaches, with stressors being a major factor in whether a headache develops.

Other causes are:

• Temporomandibular joint disorder

• Neck arthritis

• Improper posture

• Neck muscle and/or head strain

• Anxiety and depression

• Sleeplessness

• Excess physical activity

• Clenching the jaw

• Not eating

Chiropractic Care for Headaches and Migraines

If you often get tension headaches and migraines and you want to make a change in your life, you should see a chiropractic doctor. They will perform what’s known as spinal decompression therapy.

With this therapy, you lie on a specialized table. The chiropractor will use gentle pulling techniques to realign the spine, reduce pressure, and trigger healing. Through spinal decompression therapy, you may notice that you get headaches and migraines less often. You may even stop getting them altogether.

You’ll often feel results after a few appointments. It’s important you continue to see your chiropractor for as long as they recommend treatment. By making lifestyle changes, such as eating a balanced diet and reducing stress, you should also have fewer headaches.
