The change in seasons combined with the ongoing stress of the pandemic has shifted our focus to headaches. In particular, migraine headaches are incredibly debilitating. Though plenty of over-the-counter medications are available to treat headaches, this is not the sole treatment modality for headache sufferers. Altering your activities and receiving professional chiropractic care will also help mitigate or even eliminate pain resulting from headaches.
The Chiropractic Approach to Headaches
Our Mandeville chiropractor analyzes and adjusts subluxations with the overarching goal of pain relief that minimizes the impact of headaches. The beauty of this approach is it does not cause even a slight side effect that hampers a patient’s ability to think or function as they usually do. Subluxations at C1, C2, and possibly C3 vertebrae are carefully adjusted. The hope is that chiropractic care alleviates the pain so that there is no need for Botox injections in the face and head. Chiropractic care also eliminates the need for the surgical removal of pressure points.
Do not Live With Your Migraine Headaches
Plenty of people assume severe headaches are just a fact of life. If your headaches interfere with your ability to work, learn, care for your loved ones or enjoy life, our Mandeville chiropractor can help. Migraine headaches cause considerable pain along the temples and the area around the eyes/ears. Migraines cause pain, nausea, vomiting, and even sensitivity to sound and light.
There is no reason to suffer in silence if you have migraine headaches. Whether your frequency of headaches is several times per week or a couple of times per year, it is in your interest to obtain assistance from our chiropractor in Mandeville. We tailor chiropractic care to each patient’s unique pain. Tell Dr. Jeff about your idiosyncratic pain, and he will develop a treatment plan specifically for you.
Chiropractic Care is a Large Piece of the Pain Relief Puzzle
Chiropractic care has the potential to eliminate your headaches. However, chiropractic care provided in unison with additional treatment modalities is often more effective than chiropractic care alone. Resist the temptation to use medications at a high frequency, as excessive use can lead to rebound headaches that occur much more regularly.
Be mindful of your nutrition in the context of headaches. Food triggers such as dairy, alcohol, pork, coffee, tea, and fried foods are also known to trigger migraine headaches. Graze throughout the day with small meals and snacks instead of eating two or three large meals. The ongoing inflow of nutritional sustenance will also help prevent migraine headaches.
Above all, stay hydrated by drinking at least six glasses of water per day and schedule regular chiropractic care in Mandeville. If you are still experiencing headaches after implementing the strategies detailed above, consider limiting your screen time. A reduction in screen time combined with routine chiropractic care has the potential to reduce your headache frequency or stop them altogether significantly.
