try chiropractic care for headache and migraine relief

Headaches can really dampen your spirits and your life. There are lots of causes of headaches, as headaches are simply a complex symptom. Headache relief at our Camanche chiropractic clinic may be the solution you are looking for.

Tension headaches are probably the most common headaches. They are usually related to the jaw or spinal alignment and muscle tension and usually respond very well to chiropractic care. This has been reported by a Duke University study on headaches. Often headaches of this type start to improve immediately.

Migraine headaches also have several origins. Dr. Clarence Gonstead found that many migraines have associations with hormonally related origins due to nerve pressure in the spine affecting the sympathetic nervous system. By balancing the nervous system and adjusting areas of the spine related to the adrenal hormones, sex hormones, and thyroid gland he was able to achieve successful relief for migraine sufferers. We continue to use his systems and approaches to help migraine sufferers resolve their headache problems. There are often lifestyle & diet triggers that need to be found and eliminated to control migraines, and for those willing to make the changes, results can be very satisfactory.

Headaches and Migraines in Camanche

Whether you are dealing with a persistent ache in your head, or the worst symptoms associated with migraines, including light and noise intolerance, nausea, vomiting, hallucinations, depression, and irritation the cause may be a structural issue. When the spine moves out of position because of developmental issues, trauma, repetitive stress, and other incidents, it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. When the nerves are compressed or irritated, 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 the tightness can also pull your bones out of alignment leading to more persistent headaches and migraines. A headache or migraine can be a sign that there are deeper problems arising in your spinal column, and because every other system in your body is impacted by your spinal health, it is very important to deal with these issues when the signs begin to arise.

Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches and Migraines

Chiropractic care has a long history of successfully treating headaches and migraines. Chiropractors in Camanche have an extensive understanding of subtle issues occurring in the spine which, due to its connection with the nervous system, is very often the source of pain. A chiropractic treatment starts with a thorough evaluation that will rule out other possible causes of your headache and examine your spine for issues of misalignment.

The assessment will determine the exact type of treatment that is necessary for the specific issue at the root of the pain. Using gentle and non-invasive techniques a chiropractor is able to achieve adjustments to the spine that, although they may seem subtle, can provide almost instant relief and restore your long-term health. Unlike medications which treat the problem on the surface level and provide only short-term relief, a chiropractic adjustment will address the cause of your headache or migraine and provide lasting results that will improve your quality of life.
