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.

I’ve Heard the Term Cephalalgia Used to Describe Headaches, What Does This Mean?

Cephalalgia is the scientific word referring to headaches. If you suffer from cephalalgia you have pain in your head and/or neck. While the term cephalalgia isn’t that common it is used in medical journals and scientific articles. For patients who are searching for treatment for headaches, we offer hope. Here at Crosstown Chiropractic in Chicago, IL we treat headaches with chiropractic care and effectiveness. If you are searching for a drug-free solution for your frequent headaches, let Dr. Aho and Dr. Shevokas work with you today.

What is a Cluster Headache?

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. Are you suffering from cluster headaches and are unable to find proper treatment? Consider the benefits of chiropractic care for a cluster headache. Let your Chicago chiropractors help you remedy your cluster headaches in an all-natural and effective manner.
