While headaches and migraines are similar in location, headaches occur much more frequently and are a more common symptom. Along with back pain, headaches affect thousands of people every day, even here in Boynton Beach. Headaches can be a symptom of many different conditions and diseases and occur when you are ill. On the other hand, a headache may be caused by a specific environment or circumstance.

However, when headaches occur repeatedly, they are a symptom of a headache disorder. People with recurring headaches oftentimes do not understand that something is causing the headache. Taking a pain medication, over the counter or prescribed, might provide relief from your headache today. But when another headache comes, you must take more medication to alleviate its pain. It becomes a cycle that never ends. Along with the cycle, there may be side effects due to prescribed medications that you want to avoid. To stop the cycle, you must determine the cause of the headache.


Migraines are headaches to the extreme. If you question whether you have ever had a migraine, you probably have not. The pain from migraine headaches can be mind-numbing and leave sufferers unable to function. In the instance of migraines, like headaches, pain medication can sometimes help, but until the root cause of the migraine is found, they will continue to return.

Symptoms of Headaches and Migraines

Headaches and migraines share many of the same symptoms, such as:

If you have a headache or migraine, you might try to avoid bright light (difficult to do in sunny Florida), have an intolerance to noise, and just want to lie down and sleep. In most cases, you will find an analgesic to give you some relief.

What Causes Headaches and Migraines?

As stated previously, headaches can be a symptom of another illness, condition, or disease. Soe people get headaches from strong scents, computer lights, vision and problems with glasses, and hitting their head on something. On the other hand, recurring headaches not associated with something else, including migraines, can be caused by a misaligned spine.

When you have a toothache, you know to see a dentist. However, when you have headaches, it might not occur to you that you should schedule a consultation with a chiropractor. Because the spine and nervous system control everything in your body, if the cause of your headaches and migraines is a misaligned spine, you should see the spine experts – chiropractors.

If the vertebrae of the spine move out of proper alignment, it can put pressure on surrounding tissue and nerves. This pressure can cause many problems, including headaches and migraines.

Dr. Abe was quick in assisting me with my neck and shoulder pain! I had very little movement of my head going into the office but Dr. Abe assured me that I would be taken care of. He not only adjusted me but taught me ways to alleviate my pain through at-home stretching and better sleeping positions. Three days later and my pain is gone! Thank you Dr. Abe and thank you MDR!! I will be back!

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Abe. This was the first time I felt absolute comfort at a chiropractor and will 100% be back. I felt comfortable and felt that Dr. Abe was treating me like a member of his family. I really appreciate Dr. Abe and MDR Advanced Medical Associates. Dr. Abe thoroughly explained to me my options and helped me set follow up appointments the fit into my daily packed schedule. Thank you !

I decided to visit this group after a pinched nerve/muscle spasms in my neck/arm were not getting better. Great location, good hours, if you are in pain, they do anything they can to try & see you and not make you wait a week.Dr Mark & Dr Abe went thru my x-rays and came up with a game plan & discussed with me.I mainly see Abe for manipulations, he is very skilled at what he does. I'm glad I took the chiropractic route. Had me up & running pretty fast. Amazing that I felt that good without medicines.Jessica & Deasy are fun to deal with. Nice, friendly, & they keep things moving! It all starts and ends at the front desk.Chris. What can I say. I guess it isn't really isn't his fault that he gets to inflict pain on me from time to time, but, he is also great to work with 🤣🤣. He gets to demonstrate the "at home" things to do, never the fun part but when done regularly, they may help you from coming back as much.Worth checking out. They are all good people.❤
