Chiropractic for headaches

Headache is one of the most common pains suffered by individuals, being very frequent in the society in which we live. However, for a percentage of the world’s population, suffering from headaches can become a chronic condition, which would merit the inclusion of therapeutic alternatives for its resolution.

Possible causes include vision problems, high blood pressure, dental pain, high fever, head trauma, among others. However, in the area of chiropractic, we see many headaches caused by high muscle tension and migraines.

The first is usually caused by tension at the level of the muscles of the head and/or neck, which produces an irritation of the corresponding nerves, leading to a constant headache of moderate intensity and general localization. Migraines appear with dilatation of cerebral blood vessels, resulting in a one-sided, throbbing headache that can be accompanied by nausea and vomiting.

Chiropractic can help to improve the onset and development of these headaches by focusing on the root of the problem, rather than the symptoms.

A large number of headaches and migraines are caused by an imbalance at the level of the upper cervical vertebrae, which are found out of their anatomical location. This causes an inflammation of the spinal and cranial nerves located there, thus giving rise to the symptoms.

By applying some specific chiropractic adjustments, this imbalance is corrected, restoring the normal anatomy of the vertebrae and the spinal canal. In short terms, chiropractic helps to normalize the functions of the nervous axis, correcting the signals sent to the brain.
