Tension and migraine headaches benefit from chiropractic care
If you suffer from chronically recurring headaches, you likely have two priorities once the pain sets in:
- To reduce the frequency and severity of the headache in the present
- To reduce the chance of the headaches recurring in the future
This means that you are in the business of treatment and prevention that we practice at Bay Area Spine Care Office. While it may be unrealistic to expect to banish headaches forever, you can reasonably expect to reduce the toll they take on your life. We can go about this together by identifying your particular triggers and setting store by natural, preventative techniques. One of the problems with the western approach to medicine is that it often treats symptoms rather than causes. With headaches this is explicitly clear: our standard narrative is to take an aspirin to take the edge off the pain. And while this is good in the short term, we need to go deeper to reduce the grip of headaches on our lives as a whole.
Drugless headache relief
Chiropractic adjustment at any level of the spine is able to initiate headache relief without the necessity for drugs or surgical intervention. Spinal misalignment causes pressure to the nerves which exit at each level of the spine; in many cases, this pain is referred to other parts of the body, the head being a frequent recipient. This means that what you perceive as pain in the head could be initiating from further down the spine. Spinal adjustment alleviates nerve compression and boosts circulation, helping to open up blood vessels in the head and neck which can have an immediate impact on headache relief.
