A migraine is a specific type of headache characterized by severe pain and sensitivity to light and sound. Sometimes patients also experience other symptoms, such as feeling nauseated or vomiting. These symptoms can last for more than a day, although typically they go away after a few hours.
Both general headaches and migraines can be caused by a number of different things. Caffeine withdrawals, fatigue, misalignments, and muscle tightness in the neck or shoulders can all cause headaches, including migraines. Muscle tightness can cause a headache or migraine when muscles become so tight that they pinch a nerve in the spine.
There are several chiropractic treatments available that can effectively treat both general headaches and migraines. Depending on the cause of a patient’s headache, a chiropractor might suggest:
In many cases, these are natural ways to reduce the frequency and severity of headaches and migraines.
Many health insurance policies provide at least partial coverage for chiropractic services, including for treatments done to treat headaches and migraines. Patients may, however, need to see an in-network chiropractor or have a referral from their primary care physician. To find out what benefits their particular policy provides and what requirements they must meet, patients should contact their insurance company.
Most chiropractic procedures are completed in just part of a day. They’re usually done as outpatient procedures, which means patients are free to go home after their treatment is over.
