Chiropractic Proves an Effective Treatment for Headaches and Migraines
Headaches, tension headaches and migraines can be debilitating. They can cause severe pain and interfere with every aspect of a person’s life. Besides intense pain, sufferers may experience extreme sensitivity to light, nausea, blurred vision and difficulty communicating.
What is the best treatment for headaches and migraines? Many turn to pain medications, anti-depressants and botox in search of relief. These methods may reduce the suffering temporarily, but lasting relief and prevention is often elusive. Plus there are the known, dangerous side-effects that come with medication.
Many headaches can be linked to upper cervical problems. If the headache starts at the base of your skull, your head feels heavy or your neck feels light and painful, that is a sign. Neck injuries can also throw off spinal alignment. When the spine is misaligned, communication between the brain and the body is obstructed and can lead to stress, tension and pain.
More and more people are turning to chiropractic care for help. They are realizing that spinal correction and structural balance are essential for optimum health. Chiropractors that specialize in Atlas Orthogonal treat the misalignment of the head and upper neck with gentle and precise adjustments. Chiropractors will also work with patients to add stretching and strengthening exercises in conjunction with adjustments for increased effectiveness.
Chiropractic care delivers safe, effective, long-term relief. Doctors of Chiropractic are trained to identify and treat conditions that have a spinal, muscular or habitual component. Chiropractic migraine treatment provides relief by adjusting the vertebrae to remove pressure on the nerve fibers passing through the area allowing communication and function between the brain and the body to be optimized.
The frequency and severity of headaches and migraines can be significantly reduced through proper spinal alignment. Reducing muscle tension in the neck, upper back and shoulders through spinal adjustment helps reduce and eliminate headaches.
