Headache and Migraine Treatment
Headaches and migraines and the pain associated with both can cause difficulty focusing, blurred vision, and even mood swings. Painkillers may help, but they may not address the root problem. With Effective Chiropractic’s wide-ranging migraine and headache therapies, you can get the long-term relief you deserve. We offer knowledgeable staff, expert therapies and resources, and a convenient location in the heart of Lanham, MD.
Migraine or Headache?
It’s important to understand the differences between headaches and migraines. A headache is a mild to severe pain that affects both sides of your head. The effects are temporary and relieve themselves naturally over time.
Migraines cause even more severe and acute pain. Unlike headaches, a migraine is typically focused on only one side of the head. Most significantly, head pain and discomfort is not the only effect of a migraine. Other symptoms include vision problems, constipation or diarrhea, or mood changes.
Headache & Migraine Triggers
Headaches are typically caused by hunger, depression, sleep deprivation, posture deficiencies, or neck tension.
Migraines are typically caused by hormonal changes, physical exertion, medication, strong sensory stimuli, and alcohol or caffeine.
