What causes headaches and migraines?
There are a number of causes, but they are a response that your nervous system has to stress. Stress comes in the form of physical, chemical or emotional causes. Our nervous system does not always respond to stress in a symptomatic way the moment that stress happens. Sometimes a headache/migraine can come on quickly after eating a certain type of food or it may take hours to come on after sitting with poor ergonomics at a computer.
Some people self-medicate with Excedrin migraine, Advil, Tylenol, Imitrex or Botox. They may even consult with their primary care doctor or neurologist that may recommend muscle relaxers, nerve medication or even surgery. These don’t typically get to the root cause of the headache or migraine, but help suppress the symptoms. For those dealing with headaches and migraines that are not looking for a “chiropractor near me” that want to do things on their own that work at a computer here is a DIY guide for you.
How does chiropractic help headaches and migraines?
Are you frustrated or concerned and looking to avoid medication, surgery or just wanting to get your life back? We focus on how your nervous system is functioning and communicating with your body by looking for imbalance and interference. If there are imbalances present in the nervous system how can your body function correctly? It can’t and that is when you have symptoms, such as headaches or migraines. If you are looking for treatment options for headaches or migraines, chiropractic helps restore balance to your body, so you can function the way you are designed to and be your best!
If you are looking for a Denver chiropractor you can schedule here for your complimentary consultation for your headache or migraine to find the relief you deserve.
How do we evaluate for headaches and migraines?
We first start with a complementary phone consultation to get a better idea of what is going on and if what you have would be a good fit with our office. If it seems that we will be able to help you, the second step will be to schedule an appointment for you where we will do our testing process and evaluate where your body is out of balance. Third, we will let you know what the best steps will be for you and what you are dealing with after these tests. Fourth we will then go over your recommendations for care to address what is causing your problem.
What services do we provide?
Our goal is to get you feeling better as quickly as possible, for some people that may take days and some it may take weeks. The foundation of what we do in the office is the chiropractic adjustment. When appropriate we will also include corrective and strengthening exercises and stretches. We also make lifestyle recommendations to help incorporate better ergonomics, sleep routines, food choices, nutrition and more.
