Where do Migraine Headaches Come from?
Migraine headaches are a complex neurological condition stemming from irritation of nerves controlling sensation and blood flow in your face and head. Genetics and gender also play a role—75 percent of migraine sufferers are women! The following 3 factors can also trigger migraines:
- Head or neck injury—Whiplash from a sports, home or car accident injury can increase headaches and migraines. When neck vertebrae are jostled out of alignment and soft tissue strains cause inflammation, nerve irritation results.
- Posture problems—Excessive “forward head posture” from looking down at your mobile device, slouching at work or sleeping on the wrong pillow can also pinch nerves.
- Other migraine triggers—Keep a migraine journal and record foods, activities, times of day, season, situations, stress levels sleeping habits, hydration habits, etc. These can all trigger migraine headaches.
Chiropractic Care: From Migraines to Wellness
Painkillers cannot resolve migraine headaches on a long-term basis—they only cover up the pain so you can function until the next attack. Because migraines usually have biomechanical, neurological and lifestyle components, chiropractic care is the ideal way to resolve them naturally. St. Louis chiropractor Dr. Sas will thoroughly examine each aspect of your life and spinal alignment to determine underlying causes of your migraine headaches. He then creates an individualized treatment plan including chiropractic adjustments and lifestyle changes that can reduce the severity and frequency of your migraine attacks because it removes the triggers that cause them.
