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 trauma, developmental issues, repetitive stress and other incidents, it can irritate and 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. Left untreated overtime, this tightness can also pull your bones out of alignment leading to more persistent headaches and migraines. Often headaches or migraines can be a sign that there are deeper problems arising in your spinal column. Because your spinal column directly impacts your Central Nervous System which controls every other system in your body, it is very important to correct these issues when the signs arise. Thankfully Studies show chiropractic is highly effective in alleviating headaches and migraines and chiropractic has a long history of successfully treating headaches and migraines.
