What is a Migraine Headache?

A migraine headache is usually more intense than a typical headache is. If you suffer from a migraine, you may also have sensory warning signs such as sensitivity to light, nausea, or increased sensitivity to sounds. When you have a migraine, regular headache treatments and medications are not always effective. Migraine headaches that accompany neck pain, tension, or stiffness often respond well to chiropractic care. The pain from a migraine may last for days in which you are unable to live a regular life. If you are suffering from chronic migraine headaches, we may be able to help. Chiropractic care for migraines can be highly effective. Please give us a call to schedule your chiropractic appointment for migraine headaches.

Cephalalgia is the scientific word referring to headaches. If you suffer from cephalalgia you have pain in your head and/or neck.

A cluster headache is a type of migraine that occurs over a period of time with pain in your head one to three times a day.  Some patients we see here at Crosstown Chiropractic have cluster headaches annually during the seasonal changes.  Like typical headaches, cluster headaches can be very painful. Thankfully cluster headaches that accompany neck stiffness, tension or pain often respond well to chiropractic therapy.
