Headaches and migraines are commonly thought to be the same thing; however, they are actually quite different. While headaches are quite common, migraines can represent debilitating chronic conditions that may persist for days. Knowing the difference between the two is crucial to ensure proper treatment, less pain, and a more functional life.
Believe it or not, chiropractic adjustments are one of the best ways to treat both headaches and migraines. If you’re having trouble telling the two apart, or if you simply need to learn about possible types of chiropractic adjustment that might work for you, feel free to get in touch with our chiropractor near Shelby.
Headaches typically cause pressure and aching on both sides of your head at once, either across the forehead, top of the head or back of the neck. While headaches can last a long time, sometimes persisting for weeks, they aren’t accompanied by other symptoms.
Migraine symptoms, on the other hand, are much more varied. You may experience pain behind your eye or in a temple, spots or flashing lights, vision loss, nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. Plus, migraine symptoms usually occur only on one side of the face.
Headache causes vary quite a bit but include stress, tension, muscle strain, anxiety and sinus infection. Whereas headache causes typically have a definable source, migraines are a bit more obscure. Their causes range from changes in the brainstem, hormone fluctuations, dilations and constrictions in the brain’s blood vessels, and more. If you routinely experience migraines, you should probably have the problem checked out by a physician.
No matter what your diagnosis, though, it’s important to get help. Here at Carolina Chiropractic Plus, that’s what we do.
