Headaches and migraines can present differently in each person. While some people experience pain near the forehead, other types of pain can radiate down the back of the head. No matter the kind of headaches you experience, chiropractic care can help. McCabe Chiropractic and Wellness Center understands that headaches and migraines can prevent you from fully participating in daily life. That's why our chiropractic care works to naturally reduce the severity and frequency of your headaches or migraines. If you are in Hudson, here are some of the techniques we may use to treat your head pain.
Spinal Manipulation and Adjustment
Spinal manipulation is often the best treatment for patients with tension headaches or migraines. A common reason why people suffer from frequent headaches is because of spinal misalignments. Spinal misalignments can place excessive pressure on the surrounding muscles and also lead to nerve pain. Chiropractic adjustments help to naturally reposition your spine, alleviating tension and promoting blood flow to the affected area. Spinal manipulations also help reduce the possibility of migraines and headaches from reoccurring in the future.
Lifestyle and Diet Advice
Migraines are often easy to avoid if you are familiar with your triggers. Diet and lifestyle advice can help you avoid the common triggers associated with migraines. Common triggers our chiropractors may recommend avoiding include stress, frustration, and nitrite compounds like processed meats. Foods like soy sauce and chocolate can also be triggers.
Our chiropractors will ask that you keep a log of your headaches or migraines, noting the things you've done during the day leading up to the occurrence. This log should include everything you've eaten, where you've gone, and other potential triggers that could have led to pain and discomfort. This log will help us understand what lifestyle advice will help you avoid triggers in the future.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point therapy takes into account the type of headache you have. This type of treatment involves activating specific triggers in the neck and shoulders. Activating these points is often helpful for relieving tension and pain, allowing the headaches to become less frequent over time. Trigger point therapy provides a non-invasive approach to pain relief.
