Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches and Migraines
Chronic head pain can be debilitating. Migraines have put plenty of the toughest people in the world out of commission. What you might not know is that Arlington Chiropractic Clinic has a comprehensive approach to treating migraines. Even if they stem from a concussion or physical trauma, there’s a natural solution to your problem.
How a Chiropractor Helps with Concussions
It can happen with an auto accident injury, a sports injury or a simple slip and fall. The origin doesn’t matter. What does matter is that the concussion is treated. Your initial treatment for a concussion should be with emergency care. But, even after you’re in the clear for immediate danger, the fallout from the injury can last. It’s perfectly common for a head injury to induce chronic headaches and migraines. The good news is that you don’t have to live on medication to get the head pain under control.
Treatment for the long-term head pain starts with a visit to the Chiropractor. The first step is to comprehensively search for triggers. An examination of your head, neck and spine will help to diagnose any misalignments, spasms or weaknesses that could be contributing to your headaches. We may also recommend keeping a detailed diary of your day-to-day life, including what you eat, how and when you sleep and more. Identifying triggers is essential to combating migraines. Once the triggers are found, a treatment course is developed to help reduce underlying causes and plan around triggers. This could include spinal realignment, stress management, therapeutic exercises, massage therapy, food elimination, bioidentical hormone treatment or lifestyle and nutritional counseling.
Understanding Long-Term Solutions
Physical treatments can bring immediate relief to head pain, but it’s the lifestyle changes that will prevent any migraines from returning. Reducing tension and managing stress are essential to fighting persistent migraines. Maintaining your exercises can limit physical stressors that trigger migraines. Dietary changes can address vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and they can help you eliminate gastrointestinal triggers. All of this will be addressed by our experienced Chiropractors. When you fix the underlying causes, the headache problem goes away, and you promote an overall healthier lifestyle for yourself.
