38 million people in the U.S. suffer from migraines. The debilitating pain, nausea, environmental sensitivities, and general ailments affect more women than men. For the vast majority of people that suffer from headaches and migraines taking an over-the-counter pain reliever sometimes does the trick, but often those medications are ineffective. Some stronger medications and injections work to mask the symptoms of the aching, but there is a better way to treat the cause of migraines and not just the side effects.
Have you noticed that you’re headaches are more frequent than they used to be? Along with tension, tightness and the throbbing sensations associated with a headache, your spinal alignment may be exacerbating your symptoms and recurrence levels.
The spine is made up of wedges of vertebral bone consisting of sacral, lumbar, thoracic and cervical vertebrae, as well as, vertebral discs, ligaments, tendons and muscles that attach to the spine. Over 30 nerves run down the entire spinal column. When our spine is injured or misaligned, the surrounding muscles in our necks often contract, as they tighten to try and protect the spine. This compression causes severe headaches and while taking ibuprofen may work short-term by masking your pain, until your spine is aligned and your nerves are decompressed, you’re headaches will keep coming back.
A chiropractor uses imaging to view the cervical spine (neck) and the position of the vertebrae. When these vertebrae are misaligned the muscles of the head and neck are pulled, and the nerves from the brain stem are strained resulting in dural inflammation and tension. The inflammation causes migraines. Re-alignment of the cervical spine provides accurate positioning and relieves stress in the surrounding nerves and muscles. This results-driven solution realignment is known as spinal decompression and doesn’t require any drugs or surgery. Spinal realignment and decompression provide favorable results in relieving migraine and vertebral pain. For many years chiropractors and physical therapists, have been utilizing this natural therapy for their patients.
