The Treatment You Get
Chiropractic care has a long history of successfully treating headaches and migraines. Chiropractors in Murrieta have an extensive understanding of subtle issues occurring in the spine which, due to its connection with the nervous system, is very often the source of pain. A chiropractic treatment starts with a thorough evaluation that will rule out other possible causes of your headache and examine your spine for issues of misalignment.
The only thing worse than a splitting headache is a splitting headache that keeps on coming back. Headaches such a migraines can be debilitating and really rob the joy out of life. The medical management of such headaches is traditionally medications, and some with serious side effects worse that the headache themselves.
Chiropractic adjustments to misaligned vertebrae in the neck has proven to be safe and highly effective in the treatment and correction of these conditions. There is no need to continue suffering.
When you visit a chiropractor for headache treatment, they will perform a spinal manipulation or “adjustment.” Typically for headaches, your doctor will perform a spinal manipulation on your neck, but your doctor may also adjust your back as well depending on the results of your examination.
Utilizing a targeted methodology, or x-ray films, your chiropractor will identify different vertebrae that are out of place or have a subluxation and causing pressure on your nerves. Many times, this extra stress on the nervous system is what is preventing your body from functioning normally and causing your headaches.
This manipulation will not only help with the current headaches you are experiencing but will reduce the risk of stress and tension building up and causing future headache pain as well.
