Many people deal with headaches or migraines on a frequent basis. If you are someone who has difficulty with chronic headaches or migraines, consider contacting Dr. Phillips Chiropractic Nutrition and Wellness in San Antonio to meet with our chiropractor. Here is some information about these conditions and how our practice can assist with headache & migraine treatment.
Why Migraines or Headaches Occur
Migraines or headaches can happen for several reasons. When you miss a meal or don't drink enough water during the day, a headache may arise. If you are subjected to a stressful situation, your body may rebel with a headache or migraine as a result. Headaches and migraines could be signs of a hormonal problem. Pain in the head may also occur if you were recently involved in an auto accident or personal injury.
How to Relieve Pain at Home
When a headache or migraine occurs, it is best to retreat to an area where you can rest comfortably. The pain of migraine headaches could worsen if there are loud sounds present or if bright illumination is in the area. Staying in a quiet, dim area is best until the pain subsides. A warm compress on the head, while you are lying down, may be helpful in getting symptoms to subside as well.
How to Avoid Headaches and Migraines
Make sure to eat at regular intervals and keep your water bottle full so you can hydrate yourself throughout the day, and when a headache occurs. If you are regularly subjected to stressful situations, you may want to make a few changes in your lifestyle to avoid these scenarios. Seeing our chiropractor could be beneficial in treating headaches and migraines and keeping future ones from occurring.
What Our Chiropractor Can do to Help
Our chiropractor will do a medical assessment to determine what is causing your headaches or migraines so that it can be treated properly. If you had been to a family physician for the problem in the past, bring along documentation about your treatment.
