Could Neck Misalignment Be Causing Your Headaches and Migraines?

posted in: Neck Injuries | 0

Frequent headaches and migraines can be debilitating, making it difficult to get through the day. Headaches may be a symptom of several possible issues, but many of them can be solved through chiropractic care. If headaches are interfering with your life, it may be time to address the underlying issues.


Posture May Be to Blame

The most common cause of chronic headaches is actually a misalignment in your neck. Shifts in your neck’s vertebrae could be putting pressure on the nerves, causing frequent, painful headaches or migraines. This misalignment may be causing a lack of cervical curve, which limits the blood flow from the spinal cord to the brain, and interferes with your body’s ability to send messages from your brain to your body. Chiropractic care, including treatments like ART and FIT, can help realign the vertebrae in your neck and eliminate headaches and muscle pain.


A History of Relief

Chiropractic techniques have been used to relieve headaches for hundreds of years, and recent studies support the claim that chiropractic care can be a permanent solution for those suffering from migraines. Researchers at Duke University tested the spinal misalignment theory in 2001, comparing the effects of chiropractic alignment with the results given by traditional pain medication. They found that manipulation of the spine resulted in fewer side effects than the medication, as well as longer lasting relief.


Our Treatment Process

Because misalignment is a common cause for headaches and migraines, chiropractic care may be able to completely eliminate future pain. At Next Level Wellness, our team of doctors can realign the spine in order to lift pressure off of the nerves in your neck. Some patients experience immediate relief following their first treatment, while others see a notable decline in pain, and continued relief after a series of treatments. Our goal is to eliminate the pain permanently and we will work diligently to target and address the source of the problem.
