Headache

Chiropractic treatment for HEADACHES AND MIGRAINES

The vessels that transport blood to your brain do not stay constant in their size (diameter). They respond to nerve impulses which tell them to constrict or dilate depending on the brain’s demand for oxygen and nutrition. These nervous commands need to be free of any restriction from pressure or impingement. For headaches, there are subtle changes which may cause the muscles to tense and slowly “squeeze” the head until it hurts. This compounds with time as the tension reduces blood flow even more until the pain worsens to become more severe. In migraine, the same vessels react erratically with uncontrolled changes to confuse the brain and tissues and make physical sensory complications, producing pain and symptoms of visual, auditory and hormonal abnormality. Through chiropractic care, we make efforts to balance the musculoskeletal system and reduce the tensions which lead to problems with regulation of blood flow and its potential to create tension or migraine headaches. In the final analysis chiropractic treatment is an excellent choice for the treatment of headaches and migraines.
