Headache and Migraine Options

try chiropractic care for headache and migraine relief

Migraines and headaches are serious and affect many people in Wilmington. If you're not sure if you have had a migraine or not, the chances are you probably have not had one. The pain can be mind numbing, and for many patients it leaves them unable to function. The traditional medical system relies on medication for this issue, but for many patients that's not enough. It's important to find the source of whats causing the problem. Our chiropractic office can help.

There are many symptoms that can occur before a headache or migraine starts. Hallucinations, depression, or irritation are some of the symptoms those with migraines may experience. Often those with migraines will try to avoid any light, have an intolerance to loud noises, experience nausea, and vomiting to name a few.

Headaches and Migraines in Wilmington

It has been shown many times that chiropractic care is effective at helping people with migraines. When the spine is aligned and pressure is removed from the nervous system, this will prevent migraine headaches from occurring. While most people know that they should visit the dentist they are not sure that they need to visit the chiropractor. Dentists take care of our teeth which is an important job, but your spine and nervous system control everything in your body.

For over one hundred years chiropractic care has been giving people relief from headaches and migraines. Wilmington chiropractors know and understand the nervous system's master role in the body. If the spine moves out of position it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. This pressure can result in many problems, but it can also result in headaches.

So How are Headaches Treated?

The kind of treatment for headaches will depend on what is causing the headaches. Our chiropractors work diligently to find the source of your headaches to help you to overcome them. Each year millions of dollars are spent treating headaches with aspirin and other drugs. While this may help in some cases, it is often not treating the cause of the problem. Chiropractors are able to work at the source of the problem, which can help you prevent the need for headache medications.

Causes of Headaches
There are many different causes for headaches. Patients that suffer from chronic or constant migraine headaches will tell you they have had them for years and tried many different treatments without success. The horrible thing about all types of headaches is that they change your mood, your ability to be around family and friends, your work effectiveness and your enjoyment of daily activities.

The good news is most migraines and other headache types are mechanical in nature, which means King Chiropractic can usually help to reduce or eliminate this issue.

Chiropractic Care vs Medication
Other than chiropractic care, medication is the most common method of treatment for the first 7-10 days. However, long term use of over-the-counter pain medication can have disastrous effects on your liver and kidneys and do nothing to treat the underlying cause.

Since abnormal mechanics are present in nearly everyone that suffers from regular headaches (1 or more/month), it makes sense that spinal structure and surrounding soft tissue can effect peripheral blood vessels or nerves.

For this reason, chiropractic care is well known to have positive outcomes in the overall reduction in headache frequency and duration without the use of drugs or surgery. Our office has had great success in helping patients who suffer from chronic headaches get their lives back.
