If you reach for over-the-counter or prescription medication when you have a headache or migraine, you’re only treating the symptom, not the true cause of your pain. The chiropractic approach views headaches as a sign of disequilibrium in the body. By bringing your body back into balance, we can help you find lasting relief.
The most common reason for headaches and migraines is structural issues: poor posture, cervical disc problems, misalignment of the neck vertebrae, and muscle tension. The treatment for headaches due to structural issues starts with spinal adjustments to bring the back into proper alignment; these adjustments are supplemented with soft tissue massage, passive therapy, and at-home stretches and exercises. This treatment protocol has proven effective in helping countless patients with chronic headaches and migraines.
If structural problems aren’t the cause of your headaches, our next step is to determine if you have any chemical triggers. These may include the medications you’re taking, environmental factors, and food allergies or sensitivities. If you’re not able to avoid these triggers, we can prescribe a supplement regimen to help counteract your triggers and keep your body in balance.
