Headache & Migraine Relief FAQs Answered by our Chiropractor in Lakewood

Headaches and migraines can be hard to deal with, especially if you don't know what is causing them. While pain relief medication can temporarily bring relief, it may not truly address the problem in the long term. Frequent headaches or migraines may be a symptom of a more serious medical issue. Metro Denver Accident & Injury Centers provides the answers to some frequently asked questions about headaches and migraines.

What is the Difference Between a Headache and a Migraine?

A headache is a pain that manifests in the head or neck. Headaches are usually a symptom of a greater condition. A migraine is a recurrent headache, ranging from moderate to severe pain. Nausea, vomiting, and light sensitivity often develop during a migraine.

What Causes a Headache or Migraine?

Hormonal imbalances, infections, injuries, blood disorders, tumors, emotional stress, meningitis, glaucoma, hemorrhages, and ruptured aneurysms have been known to cause headaches. Those with a family history of these conditions are more at risk of developing a headache or migraine problem.

How Can I Manage Headache & Migraine Pain?

To manage a headache or a migraine, you can:

  • Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated
  • Take pain relief medication
  • Avoid eye strain and back strain
  • Avoid stressful situations and get plenty of rest
  • Consume a diet high in vitamins, minerals, and magnesium
  • Visit a chiropractor for healthcare and lifestyle advice

How is a Headache or Migraine Problem Treated by a Chiropractor?

After an initial evaluation, the doctor will design a plan of treatment that will manage or reduce the patient's headaches. The doctor may use chiropractic care, diagnostic testing, and more as part of the patient's treatment.
