Headache and Migraine
At Daniels Chiropractic, we understand that suffering from repetitive headache or migraine can have a serious impact on your daily life. We want our patients to enjoy life, which is why we recommend Chiropractic care!
Chiropractic spinal adjustments have been proven in *University studies to relieve both migraine and cervicogenic headache in many people.
A disturbed pattern of motion throughout the spine (especially the cervical spine/neck in this case) and upper back, may result in nerve irritation, which can affect the muscles attached to the neck, skull and shoulders – often resulting in headache.
A vascular component, whereby blood vessels contract and dilate is thought to be involved in the origin of migraine, along with the above mentioned nerve pressure/irritation.
This presentation is regularly seen in the chiropractic setting, with usually a good outcome obtained through gentle spinal adjustments.
