The difference between a headache and a migraine in Mandan ND

Everyone will experience a headache at some point in their lives, but not everyone will experience a migraine. The main difference between the two has to do with the other symptoms that come along with the headache. For instance, a tension headache will often begin in the neck and shoulders and radiate up to the head, but the pain a person experiences is generally limited to the area affected by the headache. In the case of migraines, a headache is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, loss of appetite, or blurry vision. Migraines are also sometimes preceded by flashes of light, blind spots, or tingling in the face or down one arm or leg.

Can headaches and migraines be treated without medication?

Traditionally, doctors prescribe daily-use medications for migraine sufferers in the hopes that they will be able to prevent migraines from happening or reduce migraine symptoms when they do happen. Unfortunately, these medications often come with serious side-effects and do not prove effective over time. By contrast, chiropractic care corrects the root of the problem in the head, neck, and spine.

How does chiropractic care work to treat headaches?

Whether it is a stubborn migraine that has been hanging on for days or a simple tension headaches, chiropractic care addresses the parts of the body that are malfunctioning, thereby causing pain. Using a variety of chiropractic techniques, Dr. Nagel is able to restore nerve function throughout the body by correcting vertebral subluxations. Once the body’s nerves are functioning properly, the body no longer sends distress signals in the form of headache and migraine pain. However, chiropractic care is only a piece of the puzzle. Proper nutrition, stretching and exercise all play a vital role in headache recovery and prevention.
