You have experienced a headache at some point and know how the pounding, throbbing sensations can vary from uncomfortable to debilitating depending on the circumstances. But, if you who suffer from recurring headaches, the ability to fulfill all of your professional or personal commitments becomes difficult to impossible. Understanding what triggers painful headaches and seeking Chiropractic care can help patients avoid future episodes, while also treating immediate symptoms.
The Atlanta Chiropractors at our clinic help many patients who are looking for relief from recurring headaches. Tension headaches are the most common form and originate in the neck. The pain associated with tension headaches often feels like a pounding sensation that transfers to the jaw, temples, and behind the eyes.
For intense headaches that occur often, most patients believe that they are suffering from a migraine. Migraines are unique in that the contain neurological and vascular factors that allow them to exist without the presence of a headache. Common symptoms associated with migraines are light sensitivity, nausea, vomiting, and difficulty concentrating. Fortunately, both tension headaches and migraines respond well to chiropractic treatment.
Through a series of manual adjustments to the neck, upper back area, and shoulders, chiropractors are able to correct misalignments that exist in the spine and natural curve of the neck. Chiropractic naturally works to help improve flexibility and remove tension. By reducing pressure in the neck and upper back area, the nerves that are connected to the spine and regulate muscle behavior work more effectively. This helps relax tight muscles and treats spasms that cause referral pain.
