Headaches, Migraines and Chiropractic
Dr. TJ Osborne delivers natural treatments for headaches and migraines. If you live in or near the San Jose area and suffer from headaches and migraines, you already know how debilitating these can be. However, you may question whether you are dealing with a headache or if it could be a migraine. In addition, headaches fall into different categories, have different triggers and treatments.
Dr. Osborne wants to arm you with information so you and he can overcome your head pain and reduce the frequency of your episodes. Our approach is all natural and uses the healing benefits of your body to restore itself. We understand the temptation to reach for pain-reducing medications, but we also want to show you how natural chiropractic care reduces this temptation and eliminates your pain.
Chiropractic Care for Headaches and Migraines
The majority of headaches are considered tension headaches. These are dull aches in your head that are uncomfortable, but not too limiting and usually last for a few minutes or hours. Some causes of tension headaches include stress, diet, fatigue, drug interactions and misaligned vertebrae. Our San Jose chiropractor, Dr. Osborne, looks at the position of your neck and back and then discusses whether a gentle adjustment will reduce your headaches. In most cases, our patients feel relief following an initial adjustment and experience continued pain relief through consistent care.
In contrast, a migraine usually includes more intense pain than a traditional headache. It also can flare with other symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, light sensitivity, sound sensitivity and can last for days. The cause of a migraine lands in the blood vessels in your brain. The blood vessels constrict and then dilate quickly which causes the pain. Once the dilation occurs, you feel pain with every heartbeat that pumps blood through the vessels.
Dr. Osborne evaluates your migraines and helps you track them to determine any connections between eating, sleeping or stress habits. Then, gentle adjustments help to keep a natural and comfortable circulation flowing to and from your brain which can reduce migraine frequency.
Our chiropractor also discusses with you which foods may be contributing to your headaches and migraines so you can avoid these triggers and shows you ways to eliminate stress. Another helpful tip for reducing headaches is to get restorative sleep. Chiropractic care aids in better sleep as your body is working together more efficiently which helps you fall and stay asleep.
