Safe, Natural Headache and Migraine Treatment in Hayward’s Heath
Tension headaches and migraines may vary in scope, power and underlying causes, but they have one critical thing in common -- they're both capable of derailing your quality of life. But if you've tried over-the-counter and even prescribed medications, you know by now that they can offer nothing more than a quick fix. But you're in luck, because here at Sussex Spine Care, our dedicated chiropractic team offers safe, natural, drug-free headache and migraine treatment in Hayward’s Heath.
Why People Get Headaches and Migraines
In our stressful modern world, it's no surprise that so many people come down with the classic headaches known as tension headaches. Emotional tension can manifest itself as physical tension -- and when that tension tightens the muscles of the neck, sensitive membranes attached to those muscles can react by sending diffuse pain signals through the head. If you have chronic or frequently-recurring headaches, however, that tension may be caused by more than emotional stress; you may be suffering from a cervical spinal misalignment that causes your head to sit unevenly on your neck, resulting in chronic strain and muscle spasms.
Emotional and physical stress can also set off migraines -- along with weather changes, hormonal swings, specific foods, flashing lights and all sorts of other triggers. Neurotransmitter imbalances are believed to signal a swelling of the cranial blood vessels. The results may include brutal head pain, vomiting, nausea, light and sound sensitivity, and even fainting. an attack can last for days, leaving you completely unable to work, care for your family, or generally live your life.
Drug-Free Paths to Pain Relief
Temporarily dulling your symptoms with drugs isn't much of a solution when you're faced with a chronic headache or migraine problems. Our chiropractor, Dr. Windsor, looks beyond those symptoms to treat their underlying causes for safer, healthier, longer-lasting relief. Tension headaches can often be resolved through cervical chiropractic adjustments to redistribute the head's weight on the neck. This gives the muscles a chance to relax and prevents the constant clenching that turns into headache pain.
Chiropractic care is also extraordinarily effective against migraines. More than 20 percent of participants in a 2,600-patient study found that chiropractic treatment reduced the frequency of their migraine attacks by 90 percent. Nearly half of them also reported significant reduction in symptom severity. It's worth noting that, since physical stress is a well-known migraine trigger, the same adjustments that relieve neck strain in headache cases may also eliminate this trigger from your life, while also normalizing your overall nerve function.
