Headaches and Migraines
Headaches likely affect every single person in Sandy Springs, but when they become a regular occurrence, they can, and even a single migraine every once in a while can be debilitating. The medical field will often attempt to treat headaches and migraines with pain medication, ignoring the underlying cause of the pain. The fact is, headaches and migraines are typically because of spinal misalignment and the cascading effects of that kind of issue. Regardless of their cause, headaches can disrupt our daily activities, and migraines can make them impossible. But you don’t have to let headaches and migraines dominate your life. Treatment is available; we can help you.
Treating Headaches and Migraines in Sandy Springs
If you’ve experienced a migraine, you don’t need to be told how blindingly painful it can be. Perhaps you’ve taken migraine-specific pain medication in the past. Did it work to your satisfaction? Most people who suffer from migraines and extreme headaches take some form of drugs, prescribed or otherwise. But rarely do even prescription medications completely fix the pain. Usually, they simply mask the pain and put the patient to sleep. Of course, these medications are typically made from chemicals that wreak havoc on your vital organs or cause some other type of discomfort.
For over 100 years, long before any of the current pain meds existed, chiropractors have successfully treated headaches and migraines through spinal adjustments and other care. Chiropractors study for years to understand the spine’s connection to the nervous system and that when the spine is aligned, pressure is removed from the nervous system; this will prevent migraine headaches. If your spine is pushed out of alignment (either suddenly by force or gradually over time), it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves, which can be a direct cause of migraines and headaches.
