With only 24 hours in a day, it can be hard to find time to accomplish all of the tasks we set out to do. When we get sick we have to slow down and we have to drop things to take care of ourselves. 12% of the US population will suffer from migraine headaches every year and seek to find answers and solutions to their questions and problems. Tyra Beaver Chiro- Integrative Health is here to help the Beverly Hills community answer any questions about chiropractic treatments for migraines.
Headaches vs. Migraines
The terms headache and migraine are often used interchangeably, but technically they are different.
Headaches and migraines go hand in hand because the migraine sufferer has a headache, but the person with a headache does not always have a migraine.
A headache is an umbrella term that can be used to describe pain people feel in their head. Pain is usually located above the eyes, ears, behind the head, or the back of the upper neck. Sometimes it is the face that hurts. Everyone is different, but there are patterns which have allowed for classifications to be made.
Migraines sufferers generally have severe throbbing pain on one side of the head and present with other symptoms. Many people have “auras’ or visual disturbance before a migraine starts. Other symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound.
Cause of Migraines
Common triggers include stress, anxiety, sleep deprivation, lack of food, over-consumption of alcohol, and more. Women are more likely to get migraines so these triggers are especially true for women. It has been said that changes in hormones can bring on a migraine so they may answer the question as to why this is the case.
