Headaches & Migraines: A Solution through Chiropractic

Millions of people every day suffer from headaches and head pain. Whether it be an acute bout of pain or a chronic health issue, headaches affect one’s whole life and functioning. headache 1

What puts the “Ache” in Headache?

The pain does not actually start in the brain, but the structures surrounding it; blood vessels, membranes, and cranial nerves in the brain and skull. When these structures are stretched, compressed, irritated, inflamed or infected, headaches often result. Headaches are a sign that your body is under a great deal of stress. This stress can be triggered by many variables (toxins, thoughts, traumas etc). Pain, acute or chronic, is  your body’s way of communicating that something is not right. It is not a symptom to be ignored! Pain and headaches are signs that your nervous system, the body’s master controller, is under stress.  Subluxations, or tiny misalignments in your spine, can develop from this stress. Over time, these subluxations put excess pressure on the nerves, and can lead to health problems such as headaches, migraines, or neck pain. Just as you may have a cavity and be unaware of the damage it is causing, a subluxation may be doing the same without your knowledge.

The Chiropractic Approach

headache 2Most conventional headache treatments involve temporary relief using means such as painkillers (over the counter or prescription). However, these drugs only treat the symptoms, masking the pain & giving you a false sense of relief. Prolonged use of medication, prescription or not, can cause side effects & more health problems than just headaches. The underlying problem is still present & the cause of the headaches haven’t been identified. Chiropractors work to find the root cause of the patient’s headaches. They are trained to analyze the body from a holistic approach, working to find subluxations & removing stressors that can be leading to health problems. Misalignments in the neck is involved in nearly all patients who suffer from headaches, migraines, or neck pain. Realignment of the bones in the upper neck allows proper blood and nerve flow to and from the head. This removes stress off the nerves, allowing the brain & body to work the way it was designed.  This is essential for effective headache & migraine treatment & prevention.
