What causes headaches and migraines?
A structural imbalance may be causing your persistent headaches or migraines. Structural issues occur when the spine becomes misaligned, which can result of trauma, repetitive stress, or other incidents that put pressure on the nerves. Compressed nerves send messages to the back, neck, and jaw muscles, causing them to tighten. This leads to acute headaches or migraines. Symptoms of migraines can include:
How does chiropractic treat headaches and migraines?
Headaches are one of the most common complaints from patients in a chiropractor’s office. Chiropractors are often sought out as a source of treatment due to their extensive understanding of the musculoskeletal system and how misalignment is often the source of pain. Treatment begins with a thorough evaluation to rule out any other causes.
After the assessment, a treatment plan is developed for the specific issues at the root of your headaches or migraines. Using gentle and noninvasive adjustments to the spine usually provides relief and restores your long-term health. Medications offer only short-term relief since they focus only on treating the surface symptoms of the condition. A chiropractic adjustment has longer-lasting results as it addresses what’s causing the headache, or migraine, to improve your quality of life.
What if I don’t have headache or migraine symptoms when I come in?
A headache or migraine can be a sign that there are deeper problems in your spinal column. So even if you aren’t experiencing pain when you come into the office, it doesn’t mean the underlying cause has subsided. Because there are many causes of headaches and migraines, they often return. Repeat visits are encouraged to help with strengthening the muscles that support the spine and head. Every patient is different, so treatment varies based on specific needs.
