Struggling with Headaches or Migraines?
Headaches vary in pain; however, they're a nuisance in every situation. Having migraines or headaches in Palm Coast, Daytona Beach, and DeLand can affect your emotions negatively to the point where you become incapable of doing basic tasks. These problems often seem inescapable; some people use medication for short term relief, but this does not offer a long term solution. Headaches and migraines often originate from structural imbalances, and chiropractic treatment can treat the hindering problem. Solutions and relief at Coastal Healthcare Partners, your chiropractor, could be answer you're looking for.
Headaches and Migraines
Structural problems are able to cause the simple pain from a morning headache to the unbearing effects of migraines, which include: light and noise intolerance, vomiting, nausea, hallucination, depression, and annoyance. Structural problems arise when the spine's position is altered thus applying pressure on the nearby nerves. This can occur from development issues, trauma, consistent stress, and various injuries. The compression of nerves are able to send signals to muscles near the head or back that cause them to tighten.
Compression directly relates and is able to cause a slight headache or migraine that over time leads to severe symptoms. The constant pulling of the muscles can even pull bones out of alignment. Experiencing headaches or migraines can actually be a sign that there are problems in the spinal column that need attention. Responding to headaches and migraines is necessary because the spinal column is how the brain communicates with the entire body.
Two main types of headaches can occur: tension headaches and migraine headaches. Both of these types of headaches cause pain in your head and/or neck. However, while tension headaches typically affect the entire head, migraine headaches are usually concentrated on one side of the head. In addition, the pain from a migraine headache is usually more severe than the pain from a tension headache, and migraine headaches often cause other symptoms in addition to pain.
Dr. Osborne offers treatment for both migraine headaches and tension headaches.
Tension headaches usually develop because of stress. Migraine headaches, on the other hand, are more complicated. They’re believed to be the result of changes in the way your trigeminal nerve interacts with your brainstem. Certain triggers may also contribute to the development of a migraine, such as hormonal changes or weather changes.
Several different treatment options available from Coastal Healthcare Partners may be effective for migraine management. Some of the treatments Dr. Osborne may recommend more or more of the following:
- Chiropractic adjustments
- problems with alignment of the discs in the neck may contribute to headaches
- can improve alignment and reduce the frequency of headaches.
- Trigger point injections
- administer steroids, anesthetics, or other medications to specific points on your body to relieve headache pain
- loosens stiff muscles in the neck, shoulders, and upper back that may contribute to headaches.
In some cases, Dr. Osborne may recommend physical therapy to patients with headaches as well.
Every patient is different. To ensure that you get the best results, Dr. Osborne will customize your treatment plan to meet your needs. In many cases, treatment plans include more than one type of therapy or treatment.
Some patients who come to Coastal Healthcare Partners because of headaches will see an improvement in their symptoms right away, while others will need a few sessions before results appear. As you continue the treatment process, you’ll see increased improvement over time.
