Chiropractic Adjustments Are Essential

Headaches are common, but they’re not normal.

Drug Culture

Pain relievers of various types are the most common approach to headaches. In our practice we take a more natural approach and provide non-invasive and drug-free treatment options to relieve headaches and migraines. Our objective is to find and reduce the underlying cause of a headache or migraine via targeted and focused headache physiotherapy.

Hidden Cause

A common cause of headaches is from spinal bones in the neck that aren’t supporting the head properly. You might not notice your reduced ability to turn your head. But these subluxations affect nerves, muscles and even the blood supply to your head.

Our thorough examination, we detect subluxation patterns that could be causing your headaches. If subluxations are present, you’re likely to benefit from physiotherapy specifically for migraines and headaches.

Compensation Reaction

Many people are surprised to learn that their headaches are being caused by problems in their lower back! This is caused through the upper spine compensating and shifting the head off center – causing headaches and migraines. With this in mind, it’s one of the many reasons why you should see a specialist spine and headache clinic as they can provide the best treatment plan to correct your back – as it may be more beneficial to resolve your chronic lower back pain prior to treating headaches.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the spine the source of all headaches?

Not necessarily. The three most common causes are physical trauma, emotional stress or chemical toxins. Sometimes there may be a combination of factors. Our examination process helps identify the most likely cause(s).

I was told it was “all in my head.” Now what?

The pain you feel is real. And psychological sources of pain are common. However, this “diagnosis” is often the last resort of health practitioners who have exhausted their possible explanations of the cause of your problem. In these cases, we’ve often found that undetected subluxations are likely culprits.

What causes subluxations?

There are three basic causes of subluxations. Physical causes could include slips and falls, accidents, repetitive motions, and improper lifting. Emotions, such as stress, anger and fear can be the cause of subluxations. Chemical causes could include alcohol, drugs, preservatives, pollution and poor diet.

How many visits will it take?

Some practice members enjoy results quickly. Others notice a slow decline in their symptoms after several weeks or longer of chiropractic care. It’s impossible to predict. If you’ve had chronic headaches for many years, improvement can take time. We monitor your progress and modify our recommendations as needed.
