Migraines and headaches are serious, and affect to many people. If you’re not sure if you have had a migraine or not, then chances are you probably have not had one. The pain can be mind numbing, and for many patients it leaves them unable to function. The traditional medical system relies on medication for this issue in most cases, but for many patients that’s not enough. It’s important to find the source of whats causing the problem.
There are many symptoms that can occur before a headache or migraine starts. Hallucinations, depression or irritation are just some of the symptoms that patients experience. Often those with migraines will try to avoid light, have an intolerance to loud noises, experience nausea and vomiting to name a few.
Chiropractic Care for Migraines?
It has been shown that chiropractic care is effective at helping people with both headaches and migraines. When the spine is aligned and pressure is removed from the nervous system, it can prevent migraine headaches from occurring. While most people know that they should visit the dentist, they often don’t understand that a chiropractor could help with this type of symptom. Dentists take care of our teeth, which is an important job, but your spine and nervous system control everything in your body.
For over one hundred years chiropractic care has been giving people relief from headaches and migraines. Chiropractors know and understand the nervous systems master role in the body. If the spine moves out of position it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. This pressure can result in many problems, but it can also result in headaches.
So How are Headaches Treated?
The kind of treatment for headaches you need will depend on what is causing the problem. Our chiropractic team will work diligently to find the source of your headaches. Each year millions of dollars are spent treating headaches with aspirin and other drugs. While this may help in some cases, it is often not treating the cause of the problem.
