Headache and migraine pain may commonly be caused by spinal vertebra in the neck being out of their proper alignment (subluxations). This misalignment can affect the nerves, disc, muscles, ligaments and tendons of the neck.
Headache and migraine pain would normally be caused by:
- Physical trauma (such as whiplash and falls)
- Emotional stress
- Nutritional deficiencies or chemical toxins
Sometimes even by a combination of all of these factors can cause headache and migraine pain.
How will Chiropractic care assist in helping headaches and migraines?
A Chiropractor will locate the areas of the spine that are not moving properly. If subluxations are detected, our aim is to correct these through a series of gentle adjustments. At Optimal Chiropractic, we use a device called an Activator, which is a low- force instrument that will accurately correct the source of headache and migraine pain.
Some patients mention instantaneous relief from headaches and migraines, while others may take several weeks to notice the gradual improvement. If the symptoms have been present for years, it may take time for the damage to be rectified.
