Headaches and Migraines
Migraine headaches afflict many people. They can affect people from the very young to the very old.
They can affect YOU, a co-worker or even a spouse or a close friend.
Migraine symptoms include ‘severe pain’ on one side of your head that can last for days and can include nausea and sensitivity to light.
While many medical treatments address the symptoms, Chiropractic addresses the cause of your headache pain.
We view migraines as something that is caused by pressure on sensitive nerve endings in your head, resulting from a chemical imbalance in the brain.
Since your brain controls the entire body’s function by communication through your nervous system, any interference to this communication affects your body. If any spinal bones, which protect the nerves, get misaligned, there is a NEGATIVE effect on your body’s systems.
Muscles attached to your spinal bones overreact and become ‘spastic and irritated’ because your nerves are pulled on a compressed, then stretched and then they can become traumatized.
Headache pain can easily result from these imbalances.
By making sure your vertebrae are moving correctly, and not locked into place by your muscles, the muscles that support your head are then relieved of stress and spasms.
Your pain will then become diminished as the structure of your spinal bones of the neck is improved.
Don’t wait, your health is a serious matter. If you take medication to cover it up, you’ll always have headaches. Imagine you are driving down the road and your car starts to make a funny noise. If you turn up your radio, have you fixed the problem? Of course not, you just don't hear the noise anymore. This is what medications do for your headache. Your problem is still there, you just don't notice it as much.
Don’t put your body through this trauma. The longer you wait, the hard it is to give you relief.
