Headache & Migraine Relief

Headaches and migraines are common problems that can significantly impact a person's quality of life. Headaches can range from mild and fleeting to severe and throbbing pain, while migraines often cause intense pain and symptoms like nausea, vomiting, and a sensitivity to light and sound. Elite Chiropractic and Wellness Centers in Franklin, TN, can help reduce the intensity and frequency of these conditions with chiropractic care. Learn more about headaches and migraines and how chiropractic care treats them below.


Causes of Headaches and Migraines

The causes of headaches and migraines can vary. Tension headaches often occur due to stress and muscle tension in the neck and shoulders. Sinus headaches develop when the sinuses become congested and inflamed. Other common triggers for headaches include dehydration, lack of sleep, certain medications, and eye strain.

Migraines are much more complex and intense than most headaches. These can occur due to a combination of genetics and environmental triggers. Some people experience migraines due to changes in weather patterns, while others get migraines from certain foods and drinks. Hormonal fluctuations are another frequent trigger for migraines.

Recognizing the Signs

Headaches typically manifest as a dull ache or pressure in the head. People may have throbbing pain that affects all of the head, while others have constant pressure in some areas of the head. Some headaches can also cause scalp tenderness and mild light sensitivity.

Migraines often have more intense throbbing or pulsating pain, usually on one side of the head. These conditions can last for hours or days and are frequently accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Some people experience a visual disturbance known as aura before or during a migraine episode.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help You Find Relief

Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive and holistic approach to treating headaches and migraines. Our chiropractors will determine the cause and severity of your headache or migraine and develop a treatment plan to help you find relief. This plan may include one or more of the following:

  • Chiropractic adjustments: Our chiropractors can apply controlled force to manipulate specific joints in the spine, helping improve mobility, reduce muscle tension, and promote nerve function.
  • Therapeutic massage: Massage therapy helps relax tight muscles and enhance circulation to alleviate headaches and migraines.
  • Therapeutic ultrasound: Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves to generate heat and promote tissue healing, helping reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Muscle stimulation: Electrical muscle stimulation relaxes muscles and improves blood flow to ease your headache or migraine pain.
