BACK PAIN CLINIC
Many people inaccurately attribute migraine triggers to one sole cause, such as stress, exposure to bright lights, food preservatives or a mysterious condition yet undiscovered by medical science. When in reality, a significant portion of migraines are triggered by a combination of factors with one being your spinal health.
Your spine supports the weight of your body and, more importantly for migraines, houses your spinal cord. While your spinal cord accounts for a mere 2% of your central nervous system, spinal cord damage can cause long-lasting pain, disability or paralysis. Being that the spinal cord is the line through which the brain and body communicates, your brain can also be greatly affected by injury to your spine, which can increase your prevalence of migraines and raise the level of pain experienced during a migraine.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help Migraines?
Chiropractic care focuses on improving the health of the musculoskeletal system through precise pressure on and manipulation of the body, such as with spinal adjustments. Realignment of the spine, with special consideration paid to the neck, by an expert chiropractor can address pressure on the spinal cord and subluxations, which are known to directly cause headaches. Additionally, long-term spinal adjustments spread out over months have successfully treated a number of clients suffering from migraines.
Chiropractic care is most widely-known for treating issues related to the spine and musculoskeletal structure of the back and neck. However, an integral part of any chiropractic treatment plan includes a nutritional assessment and advice on how to maintain a healthier lifestyle that supports the body and mind. Being that food preservatives are considered to be a trigger for migraines in some individuals, the nutritional focus of a comprehensive chiropractic plan can also assist in migraine treatment.
If you are a migraine-sufferer or struggle with tension headaches, chiropractic care can jumpstart your healing process through spinal adjustments and a personalized nutrition plan.
