Struggling with Headaches in Omaha NE?

try chiropractic care for headache and migraine relief

Headaches are not fun, and migraines are another level of awful. Living with either of these issues can make you feel grumpy, and in the worst-case scenario, leave you unable to function. Medication may help in the short term, but when the problem is ongoing or re-occurring, pills are generally not enough. The source of your headaches and migraines is usually structural, and therefore proper treatment can help you overcome this debilitating issue. Headache relief at our Omaha NE chiropractic clinic may be the solution you are looking for.

Headaches And Migraines in Omaha NE

Whether you are dealing with a persistent ache in your head, or the worst symptoms associated with migraines, including light and noise intolerance, nausea, vomiting, hallucinations, depression, and irritation the cause may be a structural issue. When the spine moves out of position because of developmental issues, trauma, repetitive stress, and other incidents, it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. When the nerves are compressed or irritated, they send a message to the muscles of the back, neck, and jaw to tighten.

This tightness can lead directly to an acute headache or migraine. Over time the tightness can also pull your bones out of alignment leading to more persistent headaches and migraines. A headache or migraine can be a sign that there are deeper problems arising in your spinal column, and because every other system in your body is impacted by your spinal health, it is very important to deal with these issues when the signs begin to arise.

Common Causes of Headaches

One of the most common causes for headaches today are poor posture and poor head placement, “text neck”. People often spend hours on their phones, their heads tilting downward which amplifies their head weight. Imagine holding a gallon of milk at arm’s length versus keeping it close to the body. In this position, the head often feels like it weighs 20-35 pounds, instead of its normal 10-12. This is a pretty big change when you think about it.

The most common causes of headaches/ migraines include:

  • Text Neck. This is caused by looking down for extended periods of time. Looking down at a cellphone, and feeling strained muscles in the neck, is an example of developing text neck. Today, the average amount of time for being on electronic devices is four hours!
  • Whiplash. Whiplashes typically affect people involved in car accidents or personal injuries. They cause small tears to the muscles and ligaments of the neck, which leads to neck pain, headaches, migraines, swelling, muscle spasm, and limited range of motion.
  • Stress. Whether it’s a job, family, or life in general, stress causes the muscles to become alert and constantly ready for action. This can result in pain in the neck, back, and the head.
  • Muscle Strain. Like a whiplash, muscle strain limits itself to torn muscle fibers.
  • Subluxations. A subluxation occurs when the vertebrae puts pressure on the nerves exiting the spinal cord, or on any surrounding nerves. In this case, the commonly affected areas are the neck, the upper thoracic spine, and the shoulder regions.
  • Food allergies or triggers. This can include caffeine, chocolate, sugars, wheat, alcohol, and even prescribed medicines.
  • Improper sleep. Your body regenerates and heals at night, while you’re asleep. If you are not getting close to 6-8 hours of restful sleep, you can experience headaches or migraines.
