Headache and Migraine Treatment from Your Celebration Chiropractor

Headaches and migraines can totally disrupt normal daily routines. Although some of the patients who visit our Orlando Resorts Chiropractic Medispa experience these disorders periodically, our Celebration chiropractor notes that these problems are chronic for others. Relief is possible, however, with natural headache treatment from our chiropractor in Orlando, FL that avoids surgery or medication.

Overview of Headaches and Migraines

Many potential culprits cause chronic headaches and migraines. Among the conditions most often cited are hypertension, stress, medication reactions, TMJ, and problems with posture. Others include fatigue, a low blood sugar level, and neck muscle tightness.

Three of every four patients seeking headache relief suffer from tension headaches  According to our Orlando chiropractor, approximately 25 million people in the United States experience migraines, about 75 percent of them women. Many individuals seeking migraine relief state that their first episode occurred before they were 30 and recall a family history of the disorder.

One misconception is that the only thing that distinguishes a migraine from any other headache is the severe pain it causes  Many patients who suffer from chronic migraines have some of these additional symptoms:

  • Auras
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Sensitivity to sound or light
  • A temporary loss of vision

Migraines develop when brain blood vessels constrict, then dilate. This alternating cycle results in changes in blood pressure and a pounding sensation familiar to many patients.

Headache Treatment Options from Our Orlando Chiropractor

The basic premise of headache treatment from our Orlando chiropractor is eliminating symptoms by using natural therapies. The path to wellness for those who suffer from chronic migraines, tension headaches, and other types of headaches begins with a comprehensive evaluation. Each patient receives a customized treatment plan for achieving headache relief or migraine relief.

Chiropractic treatment corrects spinal misalignments that cause many headache symptoms. Manual adjustments are especially effective for treating tension headaches, which are usually caused by subluxations in the upper back and the neck, sometimes with active trigger points. Many instances of head pain trace to trigger points in four sets of muscles. When our doctor kneads each trigger point, the process releases tension in that muscle and relieves discomfort.

A variety of substances and conditions are triggers for migraine patients.  The most common include:

  • Specific odors
  • Poor sleep habits
  • Foods with tyramine
  • Weather changes
  • Lights that flicker

We encourage patients to keep a journal of a headache and migraine events and symptoms.  This is helpful in pinpointing triggers and making necessary lifestyle adjustments.
