Headache and Migraine Treatment
Types of Headaches
There are a variety of headache types that a person can experience. The main types of headaches include tension headaches, cluster headaches, and migraine headaches.
Tension Type Headaches - these typically come on with episodes of pain and pressure. You will generally feel the pain around your forehead and temples. As their name implies, these types of headaches are brought on by tension caused by stress, poor posture, or overworked muscles. Here a few ways to try to temporarily relieve the headache when you cannot get to your chiropractor.
Migraines - intense headaches that you usually feel on one side of your head. Along with pain, you might go through sensory symptoms, such as being overwhelmed by light or sounds. You can also feel nausea and other symptoms. Unfortunately, migraines can be a chronic problem that comes back every so often for a few hours or days, depending on the person and each episode.
Cluster Headaches - these are less common than the other two types, but they exhibit themselves in the form of pain around one eye that is very intense. These headaches come on for clusters of time that can last for weeks or months, depending on the episode and the person.
Treatments for Headaches and Migraines
At Art of Health Chiropractic, we use chiropractic care in combination with advanced cold laser therapy to prevent and treat your headaches. This approach is a natural method for headache and migraine pain relief, unlike traditional treatments that revolve around pain medication.
In many cases, headaches can start because of muscle tension, neck pain, misaligned vertebrae in the spine, poor posture, or even because of nutritional deficiencies. The chiropractors at Art of Health Chiropractic are able to treat all of these causes of headaches.
Dr. Callie Gant and Dr. Michael Buczynski founded Art of Health Chiropractic in Nashville with the goal of creating a happier, healthier Nashville. Feel free to call the office at 615-953-7544 with any questions or to schedule your first appointment.
