Headache Q & A

What Triggers a Headache?

Your headache can arise due to various “triggers” or causes. Some examples of these are the foods you eat, your behavior, or blood sugar changes. Environmental factors like noise, light, and stress can also act as a trigger.

Primary headaches — such as tension, migraine, or cluster headaches — constitute the majority of headaches patients experience.

These headaches are usually associated with muscle tension in your neck. Spending too much time in one fixed position, like sitting in front of a computer or at your desk, can increase joint irritation and muscle tension in your neck, upper back and scalp, which in turn causes your head to ache.

Can a chiropractor help with migraine headaches and dizziness?

Yes, chiropractic care can be very beneficial for the treatment of migraines and dizziness. Gentle spinal adjustments can help reduce the severity of migraines, and maintenance adjustments have been shown to reduce the re-occurrence of migraines.

Are migraines different from normal headaches?

Yes. There are various components of a migraine that differ from normal headaches. Migraines are believed to be more vascular in nature i.e. causing severe pain. They tend to pulsate in the front part of the skull and can last for hours or even days.

What chiropractic techniques can help relieve headaches & migraines?
  • Spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustments help improve spinal function and alleviate the stress on your system.
  • Chiropractic advice on posture, ergonomics (work postures), exercises, and relaxation techniques can make a lot of difference. It can help to relieve the recurring joint irritation and tension in the muscles of the neck and the upper back.
What is the success rate for chiropractic adjustments and care when it comes to migraines?

At Cactus Medical Center, our success rate is nearly 80% when it comes to helping patients reduce the symptoms of migraines.

What other treatments do you offer for headache relief?

Depending on which headache you’re suffering from, Cactus Medical Center offers trigger-point injections to help reduce your headache pain. This outpatient procedure tackles the root of your problem by addressing the source of your muscle-related headache.
Your licensed specialists injects a combination of a local anesthetic and saline into your targeted area to numb the muscle responsible for your pain. As a result, trigger-point therapy helps you to avoid using pain medications or other dangerous drugs that could lead to addiction.
