man needs chiropractic care for his migraine

Those suffering from migraines, headaches, and concussions can often benefit from chiropractic care. 

These conditions can be
anything from mild to debilitating depending on your circumstances. You may quickly
find yourself suffering from head and neck pain, dizziness, nausea, or even
muscle pain. 

Rather than settle for
living with the discomfort, take a look at how chiropractic care can provide
you with immediate relief.

What is a
Concussion? 

A concussion occurs when
the brain is forced to move rapidly inside the skull, which creates direct
damage to the brain. This may occur as a result of a fall, being hit, or from
sports injuries. A head injury is serious, and you should always follow
appropriate concussion protocols to avoid permanent damage to brain function.

Post-concussion syndrome
can come with a wide range of symptoms including headaches, confusion,
dizziness, nausea, fatigue, mood swings, and sensitivity to light and
sound. 

What is a Migraine?

A migraine is much more
than a headache, contrary to popular belief. Though exact causes are
undetermined, a migraine can result in severe pain usually on one side of the
head. Those affected will also generally suffer from nausea, dizziness, sensitivity
to light and sound, and numbness – the same symptoms as those suffering from a
concussion.

How Chiropractic Care
Helps Concussion Symptoms and Headaches

The common thread
between the effects of concussions and migraines is trauma or tension in the
head, neck, spine, or shoulders. While you may be experiencing intense pain in
a part of your head, the cause may actually be a misalignment in the neck or
spine. 

A chiropractor works
with patients to provide concussion treatment and relief for symptoms related
to mild traumatic brain injuries, or constant, lingering migraines and
headaches. They will manipulate the head, neck, and cervical spine in an effort
to correct a misalignment and relieve undue stress creating the pain and
discomfort.

Though it can be
tempting to flood your system with anti-inflammatory medications to help with
the pain, these medicines aren’t healthy for your body in the long-term.
Chiropractic care is a natural method of care which seeks to attack the root
problem rather than just alleviating systems. We will identify and treat issues
that may be causing dysfunction in your musculoskeletal or nervous systems.
