Headaches & Migraines
IMPORTANT: A trigger for your headaches and migraines is not the same as the cause! Generally, headaches and migraines are caused by an unsustainable level of stress on your body. The trigger is just the last straw. It’s important not to confuse the two.
The good news about headaches is that once the body is healthy and functioning at a normal level again, the triggers that once caused your headache can now be present without any negative effects. That’s the absolute best way to know if you’ve fixed the root cause of your headaches or just masked symptoms and avoided the triggers.
Headache & Migraine Relief
If headaches are the body’s way of telling you that it’s under too much stress (whether from your own thoughts, traumatic experiences, or substances), it would be wise to identify and remove said stress. However, it’s important to note that chronic headaches are almost always associated with a misalignment of the neck bones.
This means that a chiropractic realignment of those bones will allow blood to flow properly, the brain will function as it was meant to, and pain should be relieved. This is true of migraine relief as well as headaches. Even a complete lifestyle change may not relieve the pain as well as a proper chiropractic realignment of the neck bones.
