We can help you find effective pain relief. Our chiropractor at Multicare Health Clinic in Sioux City, IA, can relieve headaches and migraines as needed. We offer the following information to help you understand migraines and headaches better.

Headache and Migraine Symptoms

Your symptoms can determine if you have a migraine or common headache. While most headaches cause mild to severe pain, migraines tend to cause pain, along with other symptoms.

When you have a migraine, you might also have nausea and sensitivity to light or noise. Migraines can also cause vision changes. Migraine pain typically occurs on one side of your head and tends to be a throbbing sensation. Common headaches may cause pain in one area of your head, such as your forehead or the back.

Causes of Migraines and Headaches

Migraines and headaches can have various causes, and understanding these causes is essential for effective management and prevention. Several factors are known to contribute to the onset of migraines and headaches. Many situations can trigger migraines, such as hormonal changes, certain drinks, foods, stress, changes in the weather, or strong smells. Common headaches can occur due to tension or stress, physical activity, sinus problems, or other causes.
