Headaches and Migraines:
Dealing with a headache or can be extremely debilitating and can make it difficult to concentrate, work or focus. Some headaches are occasional, some frequent, some are dull and throbbing, and some cause extreme pain, dizziness, and nausea. Medication can help for short term relief, but when the problem is ongoing or recurring, pills are not enough. Therefore, with proper treatment and chiropractic care in New Smyrna Beach, it is possible to permanently eliminate these issues. Whether you are dealing with a persistent ache in your head, or the worst symptoms associated with migraines, including light and noise intolerance, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, depression, and irritation for which the cause may be a structural issue. When the spine gets misaligned out of position because of developmental issues, trauma, repetitive stress, and other incidents, it will put a lot of pressure on the nerves. When the nerves are compressed or aggravated, they send a message to the muscles of the back, neck, and jaw to tighten. This tightness can lead directly to an acute headache or migraine. Over time, this tightness or compression can also pull your spine out of alignment leading to more persistent headaches and migraines. A headache or migraine can be a sign that shows an in-depth problem arising in your spinal column, as every other system in your body is affected by your spinal health, it is very important to deal with these issues when the signs begin to become obvious.
Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches and Migraines
Chiropractic care has a long history of successfully treating headaches and migraines. Chiropractors have an extensive knowledge of the smallest issues occurring in the spine which, due to its connectivity with the central nervous system, is very often the actual source of pain. A professional chiropractor will start the treatment after a thorough evaluation which would rule out other possible causes of your headache and examine your spine for the issues of misalignment.
The assessment will determine the exact type of treatment that is necessary for the specific issue and the root cause resulting in pain. Using gentle and nonsurgical techniques, a chiropractor makes adjustments to the spine. Although these might seem subtle, they can provide almost instant relief and restore lasting results that will improve your quality of life. Unlike medications that treat the problem on a surface level and provide only a short-term relief, chiropractic adjustments can address the real cause of your headache or migraine for a long-lasting reprieve from headache.
