One common question among patients that experience head pain is whether or not they are experiencing a headache or a migraine. Each have very different causes and require very different treatment, but fortunately chiropractic can help bring relief from both.
Unfortunately the main cause of migraines is still unknown, however certain triggers have been identified. These triggers can include stress, anxiety, posture, dehydration, certain foods and drinks, and weather changes.
The most common symptoms of a migraine include –
- sensitivity to light and sound
- nausea and/or vomiting
- changes in vision
- changes in sensations and speech
Migraines can also be chronic, with symptoms persisting for at least 8 days out of a month, every month.
Migraine Relief Treatments
Dr. Mohr is the top-rated Tampa chiropractor for a reason! He will begin in an unlikely place for most people: their spine. Poor posture may be a large cause of your pain, so alignment is important. By aligning the spine, much of the resulting nerve interference is also cleared up. Once these pathways are clear, the muscles that they are connected to are able to function more normally, leading to less stress and contraction and, of course, less migraines and/or headaches.
It’s amazing how correcting issues in one part of the body can have a profound and lasting positive effect in other areas of the body. Each piece, nerve, and muscle has so many functions and connections. Not only will Dr. Mohr do the physical work to make sure you stop experiencing your pain, he will also educate you and walk you through his processes so you can have a better understanding how everything is intertwined when it comes to physiology of the body.
