When headaches and migraines turn chronic, this can turn from a mild occurrence to a serious problem that can seriously impact the overall quality of your life. If you've been living with headaches and migraines and have tried to treat them yourself to no avail, it's time to reach out to our chiropractor for help. Their treatment of headaches and migraines doesn't just mask the symptoms of pain. Instead, a chiropractor is trained to recognize ailments in the musculoskeletal system and correct them by getting to the root of the problem. At Grice Chiropractic, we have provided residents of Pittsburgh, and Mars, PA, with natural and effective headache and migraine treatment for more than 30 years now.
What Causes Headaches and Migraines?
There is no solid answer as to why headaches and migraines occur. However, it is known that certain headaches, known as tension headaches, are caused by stress and muscle tension. Some headaches, such as cervical neuralgia headaches, are caused by a compressed optic nerve that runs from the upper back to the back of the eyes. These are two of the most common causes of headaches.
Spinal misalignment can also lead to chronic headaches and migraines. When your headaches start to interfere with your daily life, you will need to pursue professional headache treatment. Not doing so increases the chances of headaches getting worse and occurring more frequently.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
Our chiropractors will be able to determine the root cause of your headache and follow that up with appropriate chiropractic care plans. For people with headaches, our chiropractor might recommend:
- Massage therapy to decrease stress, reduce tension, and reduce inflammation
- Spinal adjustments to help treat headaches caused by misaligned spine or prior injuries
