Headaches are overlooked so much as a phase which will go away. Many people are unwise to the fact that headaches are a sign of a problem, not just a less than desirable moment in time. One probable cause of headaches are spinal misalignment. These are stress responses which are caused by muscle tightness either in the neck or spine. They cause the cervical bones to lock up and this interferes the nerves causing disruption of communications to the brain.
The headache may seem like a dull pain or sometimes a piercing one, but a subluxation is a highly uncomfortable situation to be in. If it is not treated or is masked by medication then the problem could cause a knock on effect to more areas. The neck and shoulders are also highly affected but go untreated.
A chiropractor can evaluate the situation of static or regular headaches. If there is a physical imbalance, whereby the vertebrae or head is off center causing a subluxation, then the body’s alignment will be affected as well.
Another cause is chemical stress, as this can result in headaches and can be treated by appropriate doctors.
The third problem of headaches is abuse of toxins and or drugs in the body. This can cause the communication between brain and indeed the nervous system to have symptoms. Headaches can just be a compensation problem to a more major one.
Frequent chiropractic check ups can help restore balance and alignment which can in turn eliminate or subdue the headaches. Subluxations are best treated quickly, therefore if you have regular or frequent headaches, which may include neck or upper thoracic problems, a chiropractor can help diagnose and help fix the problem area.
Our chiropractors use actual adjustment techniques whereby forces are firmly placed in specific areas on the body to help guide and restore the body’s alignment. Depending on the problem we can offer massage, nutritional advice and physiotherapy in a drug free environment. Having a more natural remedy is immediately more beneficial for the body and therefore less invasive. Having the proper diagnosis of headaches is important in understanding where your body needs chiropractic adjustments.
