Do you suffer from regular headaches? Headaches, including migraines, can be remedied by a chiropractor.
Most headaches are caused by a misalignment of the spine, but this isn’t always the case. A chiropractor can help determine other possible causes as well. We take a holistic approach to health in an effort to go beyond curing the symptoms. We want to determine the source of your headaches in order to prevent recurrences.
Do you frequently sit in the same position for long periods of time? Is your posture poor? Are you using the right pillow? Do you get headaches after you exercise? These are a fraction of the possible variables that may be at the root of your headaches. By reviewing your daily habits and lifestyle, a chiropractor can determine the type of headache you are suffering.
Physical triggers are the most likely to cause your spine to go out of alignment. A chiropractor will manipulate your skeletal system back into place. They can also suggest even simple changes that will make a big difference to your well-being.
Nutritional deficiencies and food allergies are also possible triggers. Certain additives and foods are known to cause headaches. A chiropractor is equipped to recognize these possible factors. They will review your diet with you, and help direct you accordingly. It may be as simple as eating more frequently, or it may require eliminating specific foods from your diet.
The root of the problem sometimes lies in a combination of these elements. There may be emotional or environmental triggers as well. Chiropractors are concerned with whole-body wellness, which means reviewing all possible sources.
