What Causes My Headaches and Migraines?
This is the crucial question your St. Louis chiropractor can diagnose with thorough spinal examination and discussion of your health history. Once we know what triggers your headaches and migraines, Dr. Sas can provide effective chiropractic care and you can make lifestyle changes that reduce the frequency and severity of your headaches.
Chiropractic Care for Tension Headaches
Tension headaches often come with neck pain. In fact, one of the most common problems Dr. Sas sees in most headache patients is misalignment of the neck vertebrae pinching nerves associated with head pain. For instance, spending hours hanging your head over your mobile device can increase both neck pain and headaches. Headaches are also a common symptom of whiplash injury (during sports or a car accident). Our chiropractor can realign the neck vertebrae to release pinched nerves and reduce headaches.
In fact, take a look through our Chiropractor’s YouTube series about neck pain issues that can often be connected with headaches.
Migraine Headache Triggers
Neck misalignments from whiplash injury and poor posture can also aggravate migraine headaches, but there are usually additional triggers to these as well. Keep a migraine journal to record foods, sounds, smells, sleep patterns, hydration, etc. in the hours and days leading up to an attack. In addition to chiropractic care to correct nervous system irregularities, avoid food triggers, chemicals, dehydration and irregular sleep patterns.
