Chiropractic for Headaches & Migraines
Care for Headaches & Migraines in Yuba City & Surrounding Areas
Do you have tension headaches or migraines? Frequent or not, headaches are not anything to live with and endure. According to the International Headache Society, headaches impact close to 40 percent of the American population. Anything from loud music, a bright screen, stress, lack of food and water can trigger a throbbing headache.
Luckily, chiropractic care for headaches can be an effective treatment option for migraine and tension headaches caused by muscle contractions in the head or neck region.
How Headaches Are Connected to Chiropractic Care
Often, the source of your headaches and migraines is structural. As a result of trauma, repetitive stress, developmental issues, or other conditions, the spine can move out of position, putting pressure on the surrounding nerves. Over time, this pressure can compress or irritate the nerves, leading to back, neck, and jaw tightness, which eventually causes acute headache or migraine. The tightness can also pull your bones out of alignment leading to more persistent headaches and migraines.
Chiropractic care can be an effective treatment for a variety of headaches. It alleviates the pressure on your nerves for the proper functioning of your nervous system, helping to address headaches and migraines brought about by spinal misalignment. Your chiropractic care program can also address other causes of headaches like dehydration issues, dietary toxicity, or deficiency, so working with an experienced chiropractor can help you quickly get back to the life you should be living.
