IF YOU GET HEADACHES THEN YOU NEED TO READ THIS!

Her head is filled with worries
Did you know that at any given time, 1 in 4 people have a headache?
Did you also know that 70% of headaches could be caused by spinal dysfunction in the neck? (1)

How does Chiropractic help headaches and migraines?

The answer lies in anatomy. The top of the neck is home to several important structures that are vital to our survival. The brainstem, blood supply to the brain, as well as 10 out of 12 cranial nerves all travel through this integral and delicate part of our body.

Shifts in the spine, what we call Vertebral Subluxations, are caused by physical, mental and chemical stressors. These vertebral subluxations impact on both the delicate nerves and blood supply that travel through this part of the spine. Headaches and migraines can often be attributed to altered nerve and blood flow due to an imbalance in the top part of the neck. Why mask the pain when you can address the root cause of your symptoms and enable your body to repair and maintain optimal function?

Time and time again research has shown positive results for migraine and headache sufferers through chiropractic care.

In a study of migraine sufferers who received chiropractic care:

–  The frequency of episodes was reduced by 90%

– The duration of the remaining episodes was reduced by 38%

–  The use of medication was reduced by 94%

– Several associated symptoms like nausea, vomiting, photophobia and phonophobia(light and noise sensitivity) were reduced. (2)
