Headache & Migraine Treatment in North York

Our North York Chiropractor Can Treat Your Headache & Migraine

Headaches and migraines can significantly impact your daily life, causing immense discomfort and making you feel miserable. Whether you experience a mild, persistent ache or a throbbing sensation accompanied by neck and scalp soreness, these headaches can disrupt your normal functioning.

While over-the-counter pain medication may provide temporary relief, they do not address the underlying problem or resolve the root cause of your headaches or migraines.

Fortunately, chiropractic care offers a safe and effective solution that not only alleviates your pain but also targets the source of the issue. Numerous studies have demonstrated that regular chiropractic treatment is successful in treating various types of headaches, migraines, tension headaches, neck pain, and more.

Causes of Headaches & Migraines:

The majority of headaches fall into one of two categories – migraines or tension headaches. Tension headaches, which are more prevalent, are typically described as a dull, throbbing sensation accompanied by a feeling of pressure around the forehead, temples, and extending to the back of the head, neck, and shoulders. Stress, anxiety, muscle tension, or subluxations in the upper back are common causes of tension headaches.

Migraines, on the other hand, differ from tension headaches as they may present with additional symptoms such as nausea, sensitivity to light, vision changes, and pain behind one eye. Migraines are often intense, sharp, and can persist for hours or even days in some individuals. The causes of migraines are more complex, with lifestyle and external factors often playing a role in triggering their onset.

How We Treat Headaches & Migraines in North York

When you work with our Newlight Pain Clinic North York chiropractic team, we will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your overall well-being, which includes evaluating the alignment and posture of your spine and neck. Through gentle manipulation techniques, we will correct any issues with the cervical structure of your spine and neck, alleviating the pressure on nerve pathways that often contribute to persistent headache pain. Additionally, we may utilize other methods such as massage to alleviate muscle tension and promote better blood circulation. It is common for individuals experiencing tension headaches to experience immediate relief following chiropractic treatment.

In the case of migraines, it may be necessary to make lifestyle changes in order to reduce their frequency and identify any habitual or environmental factors that may trigger them. For instance, many of our patients have discovered that factors such as inadequate sleep, chronic stress, caffeine, food allergies, and even certain odors can initiate a migraine episode. By eliminating these migraine triggers, improving musculoskeletal health, and adopting healthy habits such as regular exercise and increased water intake, it is possible to alleviate migraine pain and enhance overall quality of life.
