Tension Headaches and Chiropractic
While drugs often reduce symptoms, chiropractic care addresses the underlying cause of many types of headaches.
While convenient, drugs that numb your nervous system have side effects, such as kidney failure or liver damage. Worse, they don't actually correct the underlying cause of the headache.
A common cause of headaches is from spinal bones in the neck that aren’t supporting the head properly. You might not notice your reduced ability to turn your head. But these subluxations affect nerves, muscles and even the blood supply to your head.
Our thorough examination detects subluxation or restriction patterns that could be causing your headaches. If restrictions are present, you’re likely to benefit from chiropractic care.
Some are surprised to learn that their headaches may be caused by problems in their lower back! The upper spine compensates, putting their head off center, and headaches are produced. While we can't guarantee results, we have a high success rate with patients who experience headaches.
Migraine Headaches and Nutrition
Migraine headaches may be brought on by food allergies, hormone imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, nervous system dysfunction, and/or toxicity.
Laboratory testing may show obvious things that could cause migraines and headaches such as anemia, hypoglycemia, and low thyroid among other things. Prescription drug use can be a cause or a contributing factor in both types of headaches
