What Causes Headaches and Migraines?
Certainly stress aggravates headaches and migraines, but deeper causes often also exist. One of the most common problems is a subluxation (misalignment) of neck vertebrae. This pinches nerves affecting sensation and circulation in the head. In addition to headaches, you may also experience neck pain and stiffness or other symptoms. It’s important to have your chiropractor evaluate your spinal alignment to be sure. Some of the most common causes of spinal subluxations that can impact headache and migraine attacks include:
- Whiplash injury from a car accident or sports injury—something frequently experienced by active adults
- Poor posture while using your mobile devices or sitting at your computer desk (otherwise known as “tech neck”)
- Sleeping on the wrong pillow for your sleeping style
Chiropractic care and lifestyle changes can help remove these problems to reduce the severity and frequency of your headaches or migraines.
Chiropractic Care and Lifestyle Changes for Headache Relief
Chiropractic care in Wheat Ridge can gently correct neck vertebrae misalignments that relieve pinched nerves, often resulting in dramatic headache and migraine relief. In addition, our chiropractor will help you evaluate other aspects of your lifestyle that may aggravate migraines and headaches, including:
- Diet and nutrition
- Sleep habits
- Environmental toxins
- Posture habits
Often, eliminating foods with artificial colors, artificial flavors, excess sugar, gluten and caffeine can help. Staying well hydrated and pursuing a diet rich in organic fruits, vegetables and healthy fats has also helped many patients, as has sticking to a regular sleep schedule and eliminating toxic cleaners and other artificially-scented products.
