A migraine is a headache disorder characterized by recurrent headaches, which can be moderate to severe. Migraine headache symptoms usually affect one half of the head, are pulsating in nature, and last up to 72 hours. Migraine pain often intensifies with physical activity as well, and a severe migraine might prevent you from performing normal activities.
Symptoms associated with migraines include:
- Sensitivity to light, sound, or smell
- Headache behind eyes
- Headache in the back of the head
It’s vital that you understand whether you are experiencing a traditional headache or a migraine. This helps our doctor determine appropriate treatments to help you get fast, long-term migraine pain relief.
Migraine Relief Treatment
Migraines are believed to involve the nerves and blood vessels of the brain. Pain, discomfort, disease, and sickness are all signs that your body isn’t functioning well. At Escalon Physical Medicine, our chiropractor works with you to determine the cause of your migraine attack in order to decrease their severity, frequency, or eliminate them so that you can return to being pain-free.
Your brain controls all bodily functions, sending messages to your nerves, tissues, and organs through your spinal cord. When your spine is misaligned, it affects all of these components, and you can experience severe headaches. Our chiropractor uses manual adjustments to correct issues with spinal alignment and surrounding structures, resulting in fast headache relief.
With conditions affecting the central nervous system, which includes nerves and blood vessels, or affecting your muscles and joints, physical therapy may help you manage pain and discomfort from migraines. One common type of headache is called a cervicogenic headache, which is characterized by pain in your head, jaw, and back of your eyes. Working with a physiotherapist can help you relieve this type of headache and many others.
