Common Causes of Chronic Headaches and Migraines
Chronic headaches and migraines are often caused by high levels of stress. If your lifestyle is hectic, you have suffered a recent emotional trauma, or you aren’t getting enough rest or proper nutrition, you may find relief through natural lifestyle changes. For instance, improving your diet may clear up nutritional deficiencies, or switching to a less stressful job may instantly eliminate some headaches. Other causes of chronic migraines and headaches include:
- Systemic inflammation
- Hormonal fluctuations
- Sensory overstimulation
- Weather changes
- Medication side effects
There are also some medical conditions that may cause recurring headaches or migraines. If you take any prescription medications or have a diagnosed medical condition, you may want to discuss your headaches with your medical provider first. They may have additional treatment options specific to your condition.
Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches and Migraines
Someone unfamiliar with standard chiropractic care may never think to visit a chiropractor to treat migraines and headaches. However, chiropractors work to help patients relieve a wide variety of pain. That includes headaches and migraines.
Some of the most common chiropractic treatments for pain in any area of the body include:
- Manual therapy
- Spinal manipulation
- Therapeutic exercises
Your chiropractor will start with a thorough assessment of your current symptoms and medical history. You may need to answer questions about your diet, stress levels, sleep schedule, exercise routines, posture, and working conditions. These everyday lifestyle factors can play a role in your headaches and migraines.
Technology use may also cause headaches as well as neck and shoulder pain. If you spend a lot of time on your computer or looking at a tablet or cellphone, you may need some lifestyle change to address your pain in addition to chiropractic care.
