Headache and Migraine Treatment with Corrective Chiropractic
Headaches and Migraines are EXTREMELY COMMON, but they are NOT NORMAL.
At Align Health & Wellness, we have had amazing success treating people that have struggled with tension headaches for just a couple weeks to people that have suffered with migraines for over 5 decades. The reason for our success is that there is no guess work. We do all necessary tests and exams to determine what is CAUSING your headaches and/or migraines. If we find that we can help correct the cause of the issues you are having, we will do so. If we find a cause that we cannot correct at our clinic, we will refer you out to someone who can help you.
Our Approach to Headaches and Chronic Migraines
At Align we do not treat people with cookie cutter adjustments or treatments, we cater every single adjustment specifically to your x-ray and exactly what you have going on using the cartesian coordinate system.
“I have been a member at Align Health & Wellness since October 2016. Before I came to Align, I was having chronic migraines & headaches almost daily. Since coming to Align, I have had 2 migraines in 7 months. That is so huge for me and helps me function through everyday things that I couldn’t make it through before. Everyone at Align Health & Wellness truly cares about you and your health and makes sure you also understand what they are doing and why they are doing it. It’s so different from any other chiropractor I have been to because they have my x-rays in front of them each time I get adjusted so that I am being adjusted specifically.” – Taylor
Our #1 Goal: determine what is actually causing your headaches and/or migraines.
It is far too common today that when someone is experiencing headache symptoms we immediately jump to treating the symptom, the pain. We start taking drugs to suppress the symptoms and cover up the pain rather than stepping back and asking…why am I having these headaches?
What causes headaches and migraines?
The most common contributor is a structural misalignment at the base of the skull which affects the nerves, arteries and veins going up to the head and brain.
Watch the video below for this explanation looking at x-rays:
How do I know if I have a structural problem causing my headaches?
Unfortunately, there is no way to know if you have heart disease without getting checked by a professional. In the same way, there is no way to know if you have a structural problem without getting and x-ray and having it read by a doctor who has post-doctoral education in reading x-rays.
Simple things that may indicate structural abnormalities:
- Poor posture
- Hump on base of neck (dowager’s hump)
- Head jutting forward (forward head posture)
- Decreased range of motion in neck
- More range of motion in one direction over the other
- Tight muscles compensating for abnormal posture/structure
- One shoulder lower than another
- When looking at pictures of yourself in your phone noticing that your head is always tilted in the same direction
