While spinal problems are not believed to be a major cause of the migraine attacks there is some level of scientific evidence that improved spinal function can can reduce both the frequency and duration of migraines. Actually, headache medication can cause side effects that are worse than the original headache. It is known that chiropractic treatments have a higher success rate of about approximately 90% in case if the cause is cervicogenic or the ones originating in the neck, shoulders and spine and leading to tension headaches. This can help prevent headaches and other pain and inflammation throughout the body. Have you been experiencing headaches or migraines, but not sure how to find an effective or lasting treatment plan? Our caring staff at ReAlign Chiropractic is your source for a headache and migraine care.
A common course of treatment is to take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory, which can give you some relief for a few hours before the headache returns. These spinal misalignments can affect the nerves, muscles, and even the blood supply to your head. To understand what may be contributing to your headaches, we perform a thorough examination of your muscles, ligaments, joints and posture, and discuss any past injuries and lifestyle habits that may be contributing to your condition. It also causes some light and noise sensitivity and general muscle aches. You may hear popping or cracking sounds as your chiropractor moves your joints during the treatment session.
Our team of chiropractors will get to the bottom of the issue for you. In the case of prescription opioids, they can even lead to drug addiction. The chiropractor will perform various spinal adjustments and movements, mostly with his or her hands. Now, maintenance is much easier than correction, and correction is much easier when we are younger and gets more difficult as there is more damage done to the spine as we get older.
