Chiropractic for Headaches
We know first-hand how much headaches/migraines can affect your quality of life. We also know how to manage and reduce their intrusion on your schedule.
Do you experience any of the following?
- Frequent headaches and/or Migraines
- Headaches that worsen/more frequent during busy times, or times of stress
- Headaches that worsen when your neck is in certain positions or doing certain tasks
- Tightness or stiffening of the neck
It’s a common misconception that headaches are the problem and are directly where the pain is coming from. But it’s more likely they’re your body’s way of saying something is not right.
Medication can mask some of the pain. But this is a temporary ‘fix’, not a sustainable solution (and we know with the severe migraines it often has no effect at all). We’ve seen amazing changes in our office when the underlying reason of a headache/migraine is finally identified and can become manageable.
It’s very common for the cause of a headache to be a misalignment of the spine and nerves. We’ve also seen how lifestyle factors like nutrition and sleep can play a role in calming this condition. Did you know that your spine reacts to your lifestyle? And then your nervous system and brain function reacts to your spine. At our office we look to the spine first, and then address other contributors to find a sustainable solution for you. This means less masking of the problem and more focus on addressing the problem naturally. We know that a temporary fix is not what you’re looking for!
When you come in to see us, we will review your medical history and complete a thorough examination to see how much your spine is contributing to your headaches. We know that headaches are complex and varied, so we will help you make any changes in your lifestyle that could be contributing to your condition. This includes exercise, nutrition, sleep, stress and more. We know your body is capable of so much more than just being pain-free…and we know how to get you there.
