Chiropractic Care for Migraine Headaches

Some of the most common symptoms that routinely get presented to healthcare practitioners are recurring experiences of headaches or migraines. Of course, there are many reasons that people get headaches in various levels of intensity. The use of over-the-counter medications is a common response to headaches, but when these headaches happen on too much of a recurring basis, people start searching for a stronger and more effective headache and migraine treatment.

Chiropractic care can stop the cycle of medicinal treatment for chronic headaches and migraines. Instead of simply masking the pain of headaches, chiropractic examinations and adjustments aim to discover and repair the root cause of the problem in order to more effectively prevent future occurrences of the headaches.

Spinal Misalignment

One of the possible causes of recurring headaches or migraines may be some form spinal misalignment. Contracted muscles or pinched nerves due to damaged tendons or discs supporting the spinal column can often lead to severe headache pains. A case study cited by the journal of chiropractic medicine concluded that chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy proved to be effective in treating dizziness, vertigo, and related headaches.

How Does the Treatment Work?

Essentially, the core of chiropractic treatments -- spinal manipulation -- works to relax muscles and to realign joints that have become misaligned or damaged in some way.  The release of the pressure on the nerves surrounding the spine helps to relieve pain that radiates out to other areas of the body. Additionally, once the area around the spinal column has opened up, it allows the flow of blood and nutrients to continue uninhibited through the body, which is an essential part of restoring health, mobility and normal body functioning.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Your specific treatment prescribed will depend entirely on your particular circumstances. Again, we don’t treat our patients by rote at First Chiropractic. Our main job and concern is to put you on a road to healing that works best for your specific condition. We won’t know what that might entail until we speak with you, examine you and get a full health and lifestyle rundown. Only then can we, together with your input, decide on a course of treatment that we feel will most benefit you. Typically, patients heal best with a series of 2 to 4 weeks of restorative treatments followed by visits once a month, every few months or as needed to maintain ongoing wellness.
