Headache and Migraine Treatment with our Summerlin Chiropractor
Headaches and migraines are easily confused, but there are significant differences between the two. Understanding these differences can help you figure out which one you have, so you can get effective care for it. At Red Rock Chiropractic in Summerlin, we offer adjustments and other treatments for migraines and headaches.
Common Symptoms of Migraines and Headaches
Headaches cause pain and pressure in your head that usually ranges from mild or moderate to severe. There are different types of headaches that cause varying symptoms. Cluster headaches usually cause pain that comes and goes in cycles and affects one side of your head, while sinus headaches are often accompanied by nasal congestion and other respiratory symptoms. Tension headaches typically develop toward the end of the day and feel like a band of pain around your head.
Migraines generally cause pain your head that is highly intense and lasts for longer periods of time. When you have a migraine, you’re also likely to have other symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting and noise or light sensitivity. You might also see flashes of lights or spots, have pain at your temples or feel pain behind your eye or ear. Some people even have short-term vision loss with migraines.
Headache Relief and Migraine Relief in Las Vegas
Treating headaches generally involves over-the-counter medications, while treating migraines typically focuses on preventing them in the first place. When conventional methods are ineffective, chiropractic care might help. Chiropractic adjustments to your upper spine bring your discs into alignment, which can ease pain from headaches or migraines. These adjustments remove pressure on nerves that reach your head, resulting in headache relief or migraine relief. Having your upper spine in the right alignment can also lower the risk of having headaches or migraines occur.
