It often startles patients who have not been around chiropractic for long to learn that we at Stover Chiropractic help many people with headache (HA) problems. From as simple (though often very painful) as tension headaches to chronic cluster migraine sufferers. The name of the headache isn’t very important when you are the one who suffers with it. It doesn’t matter what the label is, if the pain is limiting the joy of life and living, it becomes a burden for the person in pain as well as family, friends, and co-workers.
For many, headaches are a common part of everyday life. Some headaches can signal a deficiency in your body that is keeping you from your optimal health levels. Chiropractic may be able to offer you advice or treatment that could help improve your overall health and wellness and reduce your suffering from headaches.
Chiropractors deal with assessing and treating subluxations which affect your nervous system and your musculoskeletal system, which are the systems of your body that give you the ability to move using your muscles and bones. When your muscles, bones, and all the other little pieces of your back, such as your spine, are not in their proper places your health will be reduced and you may incur pain and other symptoms.
While headaches can be triggered by stress, toxic fumes, and alcohol consumption it is likely that misalignments of the joints, muscles, tendons, and bones in your upper back and neck (called subluxations) could be the cause of your headaches. If someone has been through a trauma, like and auto accident, it is not uncommon to have problems with head pain and migraines (a post traumatic HA). A very common cause of migraines and tension type HA is a subluxation in the neck (the cervical spine). It is called a cervicogenic headache.
Regular chiropractic care is a drug free way to attempt to correct any misaligned aspects that may be causing headaches or pain through spinal adjustments. At Stover Chiropractic, P.C. we specialize in upper cervical chiropractic care. More specifically, orthospinology or Grostic technique.
Every patient and headache problem is unique, so you should make sure to get a complete analysis for subluxations and a treatment plan with which you are comfortable.
