Causes Of Headaches

Stress is an epidemic in our country, and it’s no surprise that 75% of headaches are reported to be stress/tension headaches. Areas of abnormal tension, or subluxations, are caused by injury or prolonged stress. The stress can overload the small muscle in our necks that connects to the pain-sensitive tissue that covers the brain. When this muscle goes into spasms, it pulls on this tissue and causes what we know as stress headaches.

Chiropractic Treatment For Migraine Headaches

We believe that by using the right chiropractic adjustments for your condition, we can affect any joints and tissues that have been impacted by stress or injury, and restore movement. Pain and tightness in these areas is a common source of the migraine headaches that affect you and millions of Americans every day. Some common chiropractic treatments we offer for your migraine headaches at our Seattle office include:

  • Spinal Adjustments
  • Therapeutic Exercises
  • Lifestyle Change Plans

Most stress or tension headaches respond almost immediately to spinal adjustments, especially for those originating in the neck. Research has shown that this technique provides longer lasting relief compared to the medications commonly prescribed for migraine headaches.

Restoring Balance For Pain Relief

We can also provide therapeutic rehabilitation exercise suggestions to help restore and stabilize your musculoskeletal system so you can extend the benefits of your visit. Because migraines are impacted by changes in the nervous system, chiropractic care has been proven to treat these painful headaches effectively by subtly restoring balance to the nervous system.

Migraines, Pounding In Your Brain

Pain can be so isolating, but you are not alone. 25 million Americans are migraine sufferers. Migraine headaches occur when blood vessels in the brain constrict then dilate. When the vessels constrict, blood flow decreases and vision is affected. This constriction is followed by a dilation of blood vessels, which quickly increases blood pressure in the brain and causes the familiar pounding of a migraine headache.
