Headaches and migraines are not something to ignore. Some are quite minor but frequent and recurring head pain can seriously interfere with your life and its enjoyment. It is a sign that something is wrong and needs to be evaluated. The taking of medication may help you survive the day but it is no long term answer.
Chiropractic can be a very useful part of your headache and migraine management.
How did I get a headache/migraine?
Headache and migraine can be caused by a large number of reasons. While some can be very serious, most are related to lifestyle.
- Stress and overwork
- Substance abuse including alcohol and medication
- Sleep patterns
- Poor posture
- Using computers and handheld devices
If any of these are causing irritation to the nerves, joints and muscles of the neck they may be the source of your pain. Chiropractic is an effective way to address neck joint and muscle dysfunction and the problems they cause.
How can headache and migraine present?
Chiropractic is an extremely effective treatment for headaches. By carefully restoring proper movement to the spinal joints of the neck, your Chiropractor is able to significantly reduce the presence of nerve irritation and muscle tension helping to alleviate the cause of your headaches.
