Headaches & Migraines

Did you know that chiropractic care is one of the best ways to treat headaches and migraines? Many people don't realize this because they often think that these conditions are caused by problems with the brain. The truth is that problems with the neck actually cause most headaches and migraines. This is where our chiropractor at Dr. David W. Kuo, D.C. in Pasadena, CA, can help. By addressing underlying problems in the neck, chiropractors provide pain management by relieving symptoms like headaches and migraines. Here is an overview of the role of chiropractic care in headaches and migraines.

Symptoms of Headaches and Migraines

Many different symptoms can be associated with headaches and migraines. These can include:

  • Throbbing or pulsing pain
  • Pain that is worse in the morning
  • Pain that is worse with activity
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Sensitivity to light, noise, or smells
  • Visual disturbances, such as flashing lights or blind spots
  • Balance problems or dizziness
  • Fatigue

Causes of Headaches and Migraines

Many different things can trigger headaches and migraines. These can include:

1. Stress

When you are under a lot of stress, it can lead to muscle tension in the neck and head. This can then trigger headaches and migraines that can be very painful.

2. Hormonal Changes

For women, hormonal changes can also trigger headaches and migraines. This is especially common during times of pregnancy, menopause, or PMS.

3. Poor Posture

If you have poor posture, it can put a strain on the muscles and nerves in your neck and head. This can then lead to headaches and migraines.

4. Personal Injury

Headaches and migraines can also be caused by a personal injury to the head, neck, or back. These injuries can occur due to car accidents, falls, or other trauma.

5. Sleeping Problems

If you have trouble sleeping, it can also trigger headaches and migraines. When you don't get enough sleep, it can lead to muscle tension and other problems that can cause pain.

Chiropractic Care for Headaches and Migraines

Chiropractic care is an effective treatment for headaches and migraines. Our chiropractor will first assess your condition to determine the cause of your pain. They will then develop a pain management technique and treatment plan that may include:

Spinal Manipulation

A chiropractor will use spinal manipulation to adjust the bones in your spine. This can help relieve pressure on the nerves and muscles that can cause headaches and migraines.

Trigger Point Therapy

A chiropractor may also use trigger point therapy to release muscle tension in the neck and head, enhancing pain relief.
