Headaches & Migraines Q & A

Headaches refer to any pain you feel in your head. The pain may be dull, sharp, or shooting. The pain may be localized to one area, affect both sides of your head, or radiate across the head. There are many types of headaches.

Migraines are a type of headache that generally causes a pulsing sensation localized to one side of your head that may last anywhere from three hours to three days. In addition to your head pain, migraines may also cause other symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to light. People with migraines may also experience various symptoms before and after the head pain.

Headaches and migraines are common, and you may be able to manage the pain with at-home care. However, if your headaches or migraines are frequent, the pain you experience is intense, or your headaches are affecting your quality of life, it’s time to contact the team at Elite Medical Center.

You can expect a comprehensive evaluation from the experienced team at Elite Medical Center when you come to the office seeking relief from your headaches or migraines. During your evaluation, the team asks detailed questions about your symptoms, medical and family history, diet, daily stresses, and environmental factors that may play a role in the development of your head pain.

The team may also request diagnostic tests, such as blood work or X-rays, to rule out or confirm the causes of your head pain.

The team at Elite Medical Center takes a whole-body approach to care and not only focuses treatment on alleviating your headaches and migraines but also improving your overall health and quality of life.

The team develops personalized treatment plans based on the type of headache, the underlying cause, and your overall health. Your treatment plan may include:

- Chiropractic care
- Nutrition therapy
- Exercise program
- Stress management

For migraines, the team may also work closely with you to identify your migraine triggers, which may include food, weather changes, or hormones. Once your migraine triggers are identified, the team develops a plan to help you manage your triggers to reduce the frequency of your migraines.
