HEADACHE & MIGRAINE
You Are Not Alone
According the Migraine Research Foundation, migraines and headaches affect 31 million women, men and children in the US alone & 1 billion world wide. Whether these are acute or on going chronic headaches, it's clearly a debilitating matter. This condition can be complex with many contributing factors but they are understood as neurovascular events with particular triggers that set off these dreadful incidences. For more information, Dr. Dylan further explains more in-depth here.
Can Chiropractic Help With Headaches?
There is evidence explaining that chiropractic effectively manages and treats several types of headaches. These include tension headaches, cervicogenic headaches and can also assist in managing cluster headaches. Each type will require its own regiment; however, chiropractic is successful by adjusting malposition vertebrae within the neck. By doing so, this allows for the nervous system to function optimally, relax over-tensioned muscles, improve range of motion and ultimately ease the symptoms. Our doctors go one step further by restoring muscle imbalances using rehab exercises, postural recommendations and soft tissue therapies to address the causes of your headaches.
Chiropractic & Migraine Treatment
There is extensive research that suggests cervical manipulation therapy (cervical adjustments) performed by chiropractors are able to reduce frequency, duration and severity of migraines in a fair amount of people. Our doctors use hands on cervical manipulation to restore nervous system function, relax over-tensioned muscles, improve range of motion and ultimately ease the symptoms. Contributing factors such as migraine triggers, diet/allergy evaluation and stress management will be addressed in our treatment.
