At Synergy Family Health in Oviedo, we understand how debilitating chronic headaches can be. Whether migraine, tension, or sinus, headaches hinder or completely interrupt the sufferer's ability to carry out normal activities. Ranging in severity from mild to severe, headaches of all kinds cause pain and increase mental stress due to their debilitating effect. While each type of headache has different causes and symptoms, they can all be treated with chiropractic adjustments.
Sinus headaches affect the sinus region, causing pain, pressure, and tooth sensitivity around the eyes, forehead, and mouth. Sinus headaches have several causes including dry air, allergies, sensitivity, and infection.
Tension headaches are caused by muscle tension which constricts the blood vessels and nerves in the shoulders,neck, and jaw. Muscle tension at the base of the neck actually causes pain behind the eyes and at the temples. Many migraine sufferers often find tension headaches trigger migraines.
Modern medicine knows little about migraine headaches: specific causes and what exactly happens in the body during a migraine. We do, however, understand the symptoms, triggers, and how to alleviate and prevent most migraine headaches. Symptoms of migraines include visual disturbances (aura), severe pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light, sound, touch, and smell. Migraines are caused by the constriction and dilation of blood vessels at the base of the neck. Different individuals report different migraine triggers. For example, some people experience migraine as the result of exposure to certain smells, foods, or flashing lights. Sinus and tension headaches can also lead to migraines. Some migraine sufferers are affected by cluster headaches, which are migraines which affect one side of the head or face in rapid succession. Cluster headaches can last for up to a week.
You should be able to live life, free to enjoy all the daily activities and special events life has to offer, without the constant interruption of headache pain. Our Oviedo chiropractor, Dr. Janowitz, provides patients effective, natural headache and migraine relief with chiropractic care.
Our patients find effective, natural relief from the pain of headaches and migraines without the use of addictive or side effect-inducing medications. With regular chiropractic adjustments, patients often experience complete relief from headaches and migraines and almost always report a reduction in severity and duration of pain and other headache-related symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments work in the same manner, using the same principles to treat all types of headaches.
When the spine, especially the cervical vertebrae, loses proper alignment, it puts pressure on nerves, blood vessels, muscle tissue, and ligaments, leading to muscle tension, pain, and inflammation and hindering the brain's ability to communicate with the rest of the body, triggering headaches. Using gentle chiropractic adjustments, our chiropractor manipulates the spine, restoring proper spinal alignment. This increases circulation, reduces muscle tension and inflammation, and provides much needed pain relief for the chronic headache or migraine sufferer.
