Headache and Migraine Relief in Frederick

try chiropractic care for headache and migraine relief

Migraines and headaches are serious and affect many people in Frederick. If you're not sure if you have had a migraine or not, the chances are you probably have not had one. The pain can be mind numbing, and for many patients it leaves them unable to function. The traditional medical system relies on medication for this issue, but for many patients that's not enough. It's important to find the source of whats causing the problem. Our Frederick chiropractic office can help.

There are many symptoms that can occur before a headache or migraine starts. Hallucinations, depression, or irritation are some of the symptoms those with migraines may experience. Often those with migraines will try to avoid any light, have an intolerance to loud noises, experience nausea, and vomiting to name a few.


Headaches and Migraines in Frederick

It has been shown many times that chiropractic care is effective at helping people with migraines. When the spine is aligned and pressure is removed from the nervous system, this will prevent migraine headaches from occurring. While most people know that they should visit the dentist they are not sure that they need to visit the chiropractor. Dentists take care of our teeth which is an important job, but your spine and nervous system control everything in your body.

For over one hundred years chiropractic care has been giving people relief from headaches and migraines. Frederick chiropractors know and understand the nervous system's master role in the body. If the spine moves out of position it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. This pressure can result in many problems, but it can also result in headaches.


So How are Headaches Treated?

The kind of treatment for headaches will depend on what is causing the headaches. Our chiropractors work diligently to find the source of your headaches to help you to overcome them. Each year millions of dollars are spent treating headaches with aspirin and other drugs. While this may help in some cases, it is often not treating the cause of the problem. Chiropractors are able to work at the source of the problem, which can help you prevent the need for headache medications.


Common Migraine FAQs

Migraines for some people can be quite common. If you suffer from migraines but do not understand why or how to treat them, continue reading to learn more and find ways to start enjoying a migraine-free life.

What Are Migraines?

A migraine is referred to as an ongoing headache typically on one side of the head and is accompanied by blurred vision, sensitivity to light, and even nausea. It can include the stage called an aura, which causes visual disturbances such as splotches, zigzags, and maybe even a blind spot. Some migraines are caused by a deeper issue in the brain such as a tumor and other migraines are due to mechanical dysfunctions of the vertebrae in the neck. This leads to muscle tension and irritates the nerves that control blood flow to the head. Once this happens, neurological and vascular changes in the brain start to occur and blood vessels become inflamed. Pain from a migraine can last for hours to even days and symptoms from this, aside from blurred vision and nausea, can include pain, loss of appetite, fatigue, and dizziness.

What Triggers A Migraine?

There are many situational things that can trigger the onset of a migraine. Here are some of the most common we have seen:

  • Stress
  • Bright lights
  • Hunger
  • Strong foods or smells
  • Dehydration
  • Loud noises

How Can I Stop Migraines?

Learning how to manage your triggers can greatly impact the severity and frequency of your migraines. Once you discover the type of things that bring on your migraine quickly, here are some possible ways to prevent it from getting worse:

  • Get enough sleep and eat the right foods
  • Drink enough water
  • Avoid loud noises
  • Ice Packs
  • Taking Vitamins
  • Get chiropractic care

How Can My Chiropractor Help Me Cure Migraine Pain?

Since migraines are typically caused by mechanical dysfunctions in the vertebrae of the neck as described before, a chiropractor can improve the alignment of the bones in the neck, relieving the pressure. Years of repetitive stress such as poor posture and even playing certain sports can take a toll over time on your neck.

Your chiropractor will review your situation, examining for more serious causes of the migraines such as nerve damage, reflexes, and laxity in your muscles. Once these are ruled out your chiropractor can begin treatments such as adjustments, posture correction exercises, soft tissue therapy, and more. Dr. Lipinski has thoroughly treated patients with migraine and headache issues for over 15 years in the Frederick, MD area.
