Why Do I Experience Intense Headaches?
Headaches can be extremely painful, and migraines can be debilitating. While it may feel like the pain is originating directly in your head, that is not the case. Most headaches and migraines stem from the nerves that cover your face, neck, and head, creating the sensation of something being wrong with your brain.
Triggers such as caffeine consumption, stress, tension, enlarged blood vessels, misaligned discs, pinched nerves, and other conditions can activate a headache or migraine at any time. If your pain is accompanied by fever, confusion, stiff neck, memory loss, dehydration, or other concerning symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.
How Does Chiropractic Care Provide Relief for Headaches and Migraines?
Chiropractic care offers relief for headaches and migraines by first identifying the source of the pain. Your chiropractor will then discuss suitable treatment options with you. Chiropractic treatments and therapies, such as spinal adjustments, trigger point therapy, massage therapy, shockwave therapy, cold laser therapy, spinal decompression, and acupuncture, often provide immediate pain relief. Additionally, lifestyle and nutritional guidance can help alleviate the pain.
What Role Does Nutritional and Lifestyle Counseling Play in Headache and Migraine Relief?
Diet and lifestyle choices can significantly impact headaches and migraines. For example, lack of exercise and poor posture can act as triggers. Certain food items, such as sweeteners, caffeine, MSG additives, and some supplements, as well as beans, cheeses, and yogurts, have been proven to trigger headaches in some individuals.
Other lifestyle triggers may include:
- Dieting or fasting (resulting in decreased glucose levels)
- Dysfunctional relationships
- Work-related stress
- Bright or flashing lights
- Strong scents
- Loud noises
- Head injuries
- Hormone levels
- Alcohol consumption
- Inadequate sleep
- Weather changes
