Headaches are a regular occurrence for some individuals. Up to four percent of adults throughout the world suffer from 15 or more headache days each month. In the U.S. alone, between three and five percent of people experience recurrent migraines. Fortunately, at Dream Street Chiropractic, serving Florence, KY, and the nearby region, our Dr. Paul Bryngelson can help with natural remedies.
General Information About Headaches
Headache is a generalized term that means pain in your head. Sometimes, it's a sharp pain, while other times it's a dull sensation.
You might experience headaches on one side of your head or both. For some people, it affects only one area, while others have it widespread.
In some cases, the headaches are migraines, which is a severe headache that throbs. Often, the pain will be more of a pulsing sensation. And some people also suffer from nausea or a sensitivity to light or sound, among other issues.
Understanding the Condition
At our Florence, KY, chiropractic office, our practitioner will begin the appointment by discussing your headache pain. Our chiropractor will want to know how often you experience the pain as well as what triggers it, if anything. Our specialist will also want to know about any symptoms besides pain that you're feeling.
Treating the Problem
Like with all issues you visit a chiropractor for, it's important to get to the source of the problem rather than masking the pain. This is how to address issues so long-term relief is found.
Part of your treatment may include regular chiropractic adjustments. These can help with your nervous system function. If you have a nutrient deficiency, the adjustment can improve circulation, which can treat the deficit. The adjustments are also known to help with stress and tension build-up that could be attributing to your problem.
Exercise therapy can be performed on your shoulders, neck, and arms, which can relieve tension in the area. This may ease physical stress that can contribute to headaches and migraines.
Sometimes, treatment consists of lifestyle changes you can make to ease your discomfort. For instance, our practitioner will ask you about your sleep habits. A sleep deficit can easily contribute to headaches and migraines. Our practitioner will provide you with information to help you get a better night's sleep every night. Adjustments also have the power to help with your sleep.
At Dream Street Chiropractic, serving Florence, KY, and the neighboring communities, we understand that headaches and migraines can interfere with you living your best life possible.
