"If you regularly suffer from chronic headaches or migraines, you know just how disruptive they can be to daily life. When you"re in pain and cannot think clearly, it can be nearly impossible to work, keep up with your household, or enjoy life. It is very important to understand the difference between a simple headache and a clinical migraine. While a general headache might feel as though it could not get any worse than it already is, most migraine sufferers will tell you that the pain is unbearable. In addition, a migraine generally includes other symptoms, such as loss of vision, nausea, pain behind the eyes or ears, seeing spots, or sensitivity to light.There are numerous reasons why you could suffer from chronic headaches or frequent migraines. Stress, diet, posture, sinus pressure, and more can all be triggers for this type of ailment. Many people with frequent migraines also cite food intolerances as a reason for their condition. Essentially, a headache is the body"s way of letting you know that something is wrong and it needs to be dealt with immediately.Chiropractic care is a commonly used, non-invasive method for reducing inflammation and pain often associated with chronic headaches and severe migraines. Why? When Joseph Shepro performs an adjustment, it loosens up the tension in your body and throughout your neck. In turn, this reduces pain and discomfort all over, not just in your head.

If your condition is caused by stress, visiting your chiropractor on a regular basis can ensure you"re relaxed and have better posture, which can help reduce the duration and severity of regular headaches.

Furthermore, most chiropractors will evaluate your condition to see if another possible medical intervention is necessary. In some cases, they might suggest a visit to a massage therapist, physical therapist, or even your family doctor for further testing."
