Headaches and Migraines: Treatment Options
At Chiropractic Partners in Wake Forest, we see numerous patients who come in suffering from headaches and migraines. Often, the patients we see have already tried multiple treatment options but haven't found any relief. We know how frustrating this can be which is why we strive to offer something a little different. We tailor our treatment options to meet the needs of our patients. Our chiropractic care not only treats the source of the pain but can also help prevent headaches and migraines from returning.
Tension Headache Relief
One of the most common headaches that people suffer from is called a tension headache. When someone suffers a tension headache, they often describe a band or vice that is squeezing their head. This tightness leads to pain. At Chiropractic Partners, we know that most people who suffer from tension headaches also suffer from tightness in the scalp muscles, hence the name. With our treatment method, we strive to relax and release these muscles. By releasing the muscles, we relieve the tension and pressure that is squeezing against the head. This provides our patients with significant pain relief, helping them feel better.
At Chiropractic Partners, we also handle migraine headaches. Anyone who has suffered from migraines knows how devastating these headaches can be. Sometimes, people are left unable to move, feeling nauseous for hours on end. Others report experiencing blurry vision due to migraines. The pain experienced during a migraine is due to the expansion of blood vessels within the cranium. When the blood vessels are expanded, the tissues in that area also become swollen.
Often, the issues related to migraine headaches have to do with the nerves and blood vessels that run through the head. To that end, we will perform chiropractic adjustments and manipulations that will release these nerves and improve circulation throughout the various lobes of the brain. This helps to treat migraine headaches at the source.
