Natural Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches and Migraines
Headaches aren't just a pain. They can also interfere with your everyday life, making it difficult to concentrate, read, drive, or even hold a conversation.
Migraines are even more disruptive. In addition to a throbbing in the head, these unique headaches cause severe symptoms, including visual auras, tinnitus, dizziness, light sensitivity, nausea, and vomiting.
Whether you suffer from regular headaches or migraines, chiropractic care offers an all-natural solution with no need for pharmaceuticals.
Why Should You Seek Natural Headache and Migraine Treatment?
When people experience that first prick of pain in their heads, the instinct is often to pop a pill. Over-the-counter pain relievers like Aspirin or Ibuprofen offer a fast fix and let you get on with your day.
Unfortunately, overuse of headache medication may result in more headaches. Medication-overuse headaches, MOH, are common in people who frequently take pills for other types of headaches, like migraines.
A MOH is essentially a withdrawal symptom when a person hasn't taken the medication recently and may occur daily. A vicious cycle results, as people then take more of the medicine to combat their discomfort, potentially resulting in drug dependence.
How Can Spinal Manipulation Treat Your Headache or Migraine?
To avoid MOH and possible medication dependency, doctors and patients alike are increasingly prioritizing natural solutions for headaches and migraines – like spinal manipulation.
When the vertebrae of the spine are misaligned, the surrounding muscles must work harder to maintain your body's equilibrium when you walk and sit. This creates physical tension, which can radiate throughout the body to the point that it causes a tension headache.
Spinal manipulation consists of applying pressure to the spine using the hands or special tools to help correct misalignments. One study revealed that people who underwent spinal manipulation therapy experienced a 90% reduction of migraines after two months.
