Headaches and Migraines FAQ’s

Headaches and Migraines FAQ’s from Our Omaha Chiropractor

Quite a few patients enter our doors at Kosak Chiropractic & Acupuncture wanting to consult with our Omaha chiropractor about treatment for chronic headaches and migraines. Often traditional medicine merely attempts to masks the symptoms of head pain, but our chiropractor in Omaha aims to naturally help you get relieve for the long term. Here are some frequently asked questions we receive from patients suffering from headaches and migraines FAQ’s.

1. Are there different types of headaches?

Tension headaches are often due to stressors affecting the back of the neck. Organic headaches can result from infections in the head and rarely from brain tumors. Cluster headaches and migraines often result from vascular headaches, which leave the top half of the head in serious pain. We can help narrow down the source of your head pain through a series of scans and tests.

2. How can I tell the difference between migraines and headaches?

Migraines seem to be more severe than headaches and last for hours and even days. Often accompanied by nausea or visual disturbances, migraines don’t tend to go away with over-the-counter medications. It can be difficult to distinguish between the two, but our Omaha chiropractor can help with a diagnosis.

3. What symptoms are typical during migraine headaches?

Migraines are debilitating headaches that can be accompanied by neck and shoulder pain. Patients may also experience:

  • Light and noise sensitivity.
  • Visual disturbances such as seeing flashing lights, tunnel vision, or blind spots.
  • Ringing in the ears.
  • Excessive chills or sweats.
  • Mood swings.
  • Digestive problems and/or nausea.

4. How can a chiropractor in Omaha treat headaches and migraines?

A number of studies have indicated that the majority of migraines are sourced by a spinal misalignment or subluxation. This is what makes chiropractic care for migraines so beneficial to those who suffer from headaches. Chiropractic adjustments realign the spine, which can provide pain and stress relief, and regular adjustments seem to help patients suffer from fewer headaches and migraines. We can also help you with lifestyle and dietary advice that can help you avoid migraine or headache triggers such as stress.
