Headache and Migraine Treatment
At Nichols Chiropractic, we understand that headaches and migraines interfere with your daily routine. They impact everything you try to do by leaving you with severe pain. If you experience regular headaches or migraines, our Manhattan KS office may be able to help. While most people express that they have a headache without looking further into the type of pain they feel, knowing the type of headache you suffer from can make a difference in your treatment plan.
Tension headaches are the most common types of headaches people experience. If you experience this kind of headache, you may feel tightness around the head, neck, and scalp. The culprit is often tightness in the muscles down the neck and back. A chiropractor can treat a tension headache with spinal adjustments and other manipulations. Therapeutic massage can release the muscles, preventing the tension that leads to these painful experiences. Tension headache treatment often involves soft tissue work as well.
Cluster headaches often impact one side of the head. These headaches often occur in the middle of the night, pushing you out of sleep. These are called cluster headaches because they often come in waves for days, weeks, or months at a time followed by a brief break. Increased oxygen intake may treat cluster headaches. A chiropractor can also help relieve the pain caused by cluster headaches with the assistance of nutritional counseling, lifestyle advice, and even an exercise and stretching plan customized for your needs.
Migraine headaches often bring people in for chiropractic care. These headaches often come with aura, which means they may cause some visual disturbance like flashing lights. Even without aura, a migraine will cause intense pain in addition to fatigue and nausea. Treatment for migraines often includes spinal adjustment. Adjustments can calm down the nerves and promote healthy blood vessel size. Migraine treatment may also include soft tissue work. The chiropractor will work on the base of the neck and shoulders, working through errors that hold tension. Deep tissue massage is especially helpful for migraines.
