HEADACHE & MIGRAINE TREATMENT IN POMPANO BEACH, FL
YOUR CHIROPRACTOR IN POMPANO BEACH PROVIDES MIGRAINE RELIEF AND HEADACHE TREATMENT
Typical headaches usually affect the top of your head, above your eyes or all over your head. Migraine pain is severe, impacting only one side of your head in most cases and does not respond well to pain medications. During a migraine attack, you may feel nauseous and vomit, experience extreme sensitivity to sounds and light and have blurry vision. Some migraine sufferers see auras around people and objects. Migraines are often so debilitating the person must lie down until the attack is over. If you are suffering from chronic headaches and migraines, your chiropractor in Pompano Beach offers holistic treatment based on principles of musculoskeletal and nervous system functioning.
Common Causes of Headaches and Migraines
Headaches and migraines are the result of internal and external factors interacting with each other and negatively impacting specific nerves and blood vessels. While headaches usually arise from illnesses (colds, influenza, fever), emotional and/or physical stress or muscle tension in the shoulders and neck, migraines may not involve any of these reasons. In fact, doctors aren't sure what causes migraines but theorize migraines may have a genetic component that makes some people more prone to suffering migraines. What is known is that migraine pain and chronic headaches stem from overstimulation of nerve endings in the brain which elicit strong pain signals and forces blood vessels to constrict abnormally. Although medication brings varying degrees of temporary relief for headache and migraine pain, your chiropractor in Pompano Beach recommends vertebral adjustments, modifying dietary choices and taking vitamin supplements to support nerve and muscle functioning.
How Dr. Pine Can Help Manage and Treat Headaches and Migraines
Correcting spinal vertebrae misalignment responsible for impairing the functioning of your central nervous system is critical to reducing chronic headaches and migraines. When vertebrae are not properly aligned, one or more vertebrae can press against sensitive nerve endings in the spine and produce inflammation and pain in any part of the body. By performing adjustments on headache and migraine patients, your chiropractor in Pompano Beach removes compression on nerve endings and the systemic inflammation contributing to recurring headaches and migraines.
Tension within a spine that is out of alignment can cause a variety of health issues that do not respond to standard medical protocol. If you suffer chronic headaches or migraines along with fatigue, allergies, frequent infections or general joint pain, you may be suffering a subluxation or spinal misalignment. In addition to adjustments for migraine relief, your chiropractor will also recommend dietary changes, advice on improving your posture, therapeutic exercises and supplements to replenish vitamins and minerals associated with recurring head pain.

HEADACHES AND MIGRAINES FAQ
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT HEADACHES AND MIGRAINES ANSWERED BY YOUR CHIROPRACTOR IN POMPANO BEACH
Headaches are a common but annoying blow to your productivity and quality of life, while migraines can put your whole life on hold for days at a time. If you're confused about the nature of your symptoms and desperate for a lasting solution to them, check out these frequently asked questions about headache and migraine treatment here at Pine Chiropractic Center of Pompano Beach.
What causes tension headaches?
Tension headaches are so named because they're usually caused by tension in the neck muscles, especially the muscles that are attached to sensitive membranes near the skull. When these muscles go into spasm, they tug on the membranes, producing pain.
Do alignment problems and injuries make me more vulnerable to tension headaches?
If your head is even a little off-balance, the accumulated strain on neck muscles can lead to headache pain. Injuries such as whiplash can also cause headaches.
How can chiropractic care help me with my tension headaches?
Chiropractic adjustments can restore your head and neck to their proper balance. This takes strain off of the neck muscles and makes them less likely to go into spasm.
What non-chiropractic headache remedies can your chiropractor offer?
Massage therapy is another drug-free therapy that can complement chiropractic care to keep tension headaches at bay. Our soothing techniques can loosen tight muscles that might otherwise trigger a headache.
What are the symptoms of a migraine?
Migraines are often preceded by odd visual symptoms called "auras." The actual attack may produce agonizing pain, nausea, vomiting, extreme light and sound sensitivity, blurred vision, dizziness or fainting.
Why do migraines happen?
Migraines are a bit of a mystery, but researchers believe that low serotonin levels may trigger nerve signals that cause changes in the brain stem and cranial blood vessels, resulting in an attack.
What are the known triggers of migraine attacks?
Migraines may be set off by different stimuli in different people. Common triggers include hormonal shifts, weather changes, emotional or physical stress, changes in sleep habits, and specific foods or drugs.
How does your chiropractor treat migraines?
Our chiropractor, Dr. Pine, can correct any cervical alignment errors that may be impairing your nerve function, which in turn allows your other physical functions to behave more normally. Relieving muscular strain can also reduce a potential migraine trigger (stress). We can recommend a variety of dietary and lifestyle changes to help you steer clear of other such triggers.
How effective are chiropractic adjustments for migraines?
Chiropractic adjustments can reduce the impact of migraines on your life dramatically. Research indicates that chiropractic care can lower migraine frequency by 90 percent, reducing the intensity of the attacks in nearly half of all recipients.
