What Causes Headaches and Migraines?
Headaches and migraines can stem from various causes, including tension, stress, poor posture, muscle imbalances, and spinal misalignments. We believe that many headaches and migraines result from underlying issues in the spine, particularly the neck region. When the vertebrae in the neck are misaligned, they can irritate nerves, leading to pain and discomfort in the head.
Our treatment focuses on realigning the spine to restore its proper function and alleviate associated symptoms. Chiropractors use manual adjustments, spinal manipulation, and other techniques to correct misalignments in the neck and spine. Our care aims to relieve nerve pressure, reduce muscle tension, and improve spinal health by restoring proper alignment.
What Consists of Our Chiropractic Treatment?
Exploring alternative approaches to medication is crucial for patients suffering from headaches and migraines. Our care offers a holistic and drug-free option that targets the underlying causes of these conditions. Rest assured that you will get high-quality care from our qualified chiropractor. Dr. Leavitt will diagnose and work with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
We may incorporate complementary therapies into the treatment plan along with spinal adjustments. These methods may include exercises to strengthen the neck and upper back muscles, postural correction techniques, lifestyle recommendations, and nutritional advice. By addressing the root causes and making lifestyle adjustments, chiropractic care aims to provide long-term relief and minimize the frequency and intensity of headaches and migraines.
