Headaches and Migraines

A bad headache can ruin your day, but living with migraines can make your whole life feel like an uphill battle. A migraine headache typically presents as an intense throbbing pain localized in one area of the head. Extreme sensitivity to sound and light, nausea and vomiting are common with these headaches. The pain and nausea can last from a few hours to a few days.

Some sufferers experience warning symptoms that a migraine is on the way. They might have blind spots in their vision, see flashes of light or feel tingling in their arms or legs. The effects of a migraine can be so severe they interfere with normal daily function, causing sufferers to seek relief by staying in a dark quiet room without interruption.

Causes of Migraines and Headaches

Science is still learning about the causes of migraines and chronic headache. As with many disorders, genetics, environment and lifestyle all play a role.

Biological triggers:

  • An imbalance in brain chemicals
  • Changes in the brainstem and the way it interacts with the trigeminal nerve
  • Hormonal changes

Environmental triggers:

  • Bright lights and glare
  • Strong scents such as perfume, smoke or pain thinner
  • Changes in barometric pressure or weather

Chiropractic Care and Pain Relief

Avoiding migraines and finding pain relief when they occur is the priority. Spinal manipulation may be an effective way to accomplish both goals. Several studies have shown that chiropractic treatment can provide immediate relief for headaches caused by tension. Regular chiropractic care improves spinal function and alleviates stress in the body, which may reduce migraine triggers. A healthy spine supports health throughout the entire body.

At Ringer Chiropractic we take the time to listen to our patient’s complaints and concerns. In addition to treatments, we offer nutritional, ergonomic and exercise advice that may further reduce migraine triggers.

Testimonial

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Ringer and his team are absolutely outstanding to work with whether you are post injury or just need a good adjustment. They are nothing but professional and helpful - even when you are being a challenging patient! Convenient evening appointments - I have never been turned away for a time to come in. Dr. Ringer taught me the correct exercises to help strengthen my neck and back and took this very fearful and cynical RN and made her a believer!!!! I now look forward to my adjustments because of his gentle touch and I know how great I will feel afterward. You won't be sorry you chose them!"
