Can a Chiropractor Help with Migraines?
Migraines and headaches are serious, and affect too many people in the Chapel Hill, Raleigh, and Durham areas. If you’re not sure if you have had a migraine or not, then chances are you probably have not had one. The pain can be excruciating and for many patients it leaves them unable to function. Medications are prescribed in many cases, but for most patients that’s not enough. It’s important to find the source of what’s causing the problem and then alleviate it.
How are Headaches Treated?
The kind of treatment for headaches you need will depend on what is causing the problem. Our team will work diligently to find the source of your headaches. The source of headaches can be coming from brain functioning or spinal misalignments. Once the source is found the solution is close at hand.
It has been shown that aligning the spine is highly effective at helping people with both headaches and migraines when spinal misalignment is the cause. If the spine moves out of position it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. This pressure can result in many problems, but it can also result in headaches.When the spine is aligned and pressure is removed from the nervous system, it can prevent migraine headaches from occurring.
Headaches and migraines can also occur due to dysregulation of the way that the brain is functioning. The brain is designed to use energy in a variety of ways to regulate a person’s state effectively. If the brain is dysregulated in that use of energy and is using it too high or too low migraines and headaches can result.
