Headache therapy in Miami
Chronic headaches can result from a car accident or injury or related to other health concerns, such as migraine headaches. Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (aka: TMJ), a condition that affects the jaw, causes headaches, too. Many people may take medications for migraines or even seek surgery for TMJ relief. Still, for others, the thought of being dependent on medications that may have unpleasant side effects, or having risky surgery to correct TMJ issues, isn’t a pleasant thought.
Fortunately, chiropractic care can help with the underlying causes of many headaches.
Can Chiropractors Help With Headaches?
Cluster headaches and tension headaches are some of the most common types of headaches and aren’t just painful – they can also interfere with your ability to work, attend school, and even just enjoy your everyday life. Tension headaches can appear anywhere around the scalp, head, or neck – or all three. They’re caused by a combination of back or neck strain and stress. When you undergo chiropractic treatment, your neck is gently moved back into proper alignment with your head and spine, which can reduce the stress and strain from joints that are out of place. With regular treatment, many people often find relief from cluster headaches and tension headaches without the need for strong prescription medication.
What Can Chiropractors Do For Migraines?
Migraine sufferers may benefit from chiropractic treatment too, and these headaches can be debilitating, taking a day or more to recover from. Chiropractic treatment for migraines work in a few key ways: First, it helps restore proper communication in your nervous system by ensuring that your spine is properly aligned. Once this happens, the irritation in your nerves is decreased, and the pain signals to the brain are reduced. It also reduces muscle tension, which is a common trigger for migraines.
Can Chiropractic Care Help My TMJ Disorder?
TMJ, or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, occurs when the jawbones are out of alignment. It can be difficult for people to chew and talk normally, and without treatment, it can even cause difficulty opening or closing the mouth – even to the point of lockjaw. However, when the spine and jawbones are carefully realigned, the stiffness and pain can go away, allowing you to use your jaw normally again.
