If you are living with the pain and uncertainty of migraines and headaches, our Franklin chiropractor, Dr. Jason Reinarts, wants to show you the gentle benefits of chiropractic care for effective pain relief. First, we want to answer common questions surrounding headaches and migraines.
Why Do I Have Headaches and Migraines?
The causes of migraines and headaches vary or they may be unknown. Stress plays a large part in the occurrence of headaches as tight neck and upper back muscles can affect your posture. Headaches may be caused by a misalignment in your spine in which the vertebrae is compromising a nerve. You may also have blocked sinuses which can contribute to head pain. Migraines can also be caused by stress, lack of sleep or certain foods.
What Makes a Migraine Different Than a Headache?
Both migraines and headaches cause pain in your head. Migraine pain tends to be more intense pain and also includes other symptoms such as fatigue, nausea or vomiting, light-headedness and sound and light sensitivity. Many migraine sufferers want to lie down in a dark room alone to find some relief from the pain.
