Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches and Migraines in Sterling, VA
Most Americans treat headache and migraine pain with over-the-counter or prescription medications. This may address the symptom, but it doesn’t address the true cause of your pain. Chiropractic views headaches as a sign of disequilibrium in the body. We bring your body back into balance for lasting relief.
Perhaps the most common reason patients experience chronic headaches and migraines is issues with the structure of the body: poor posture, cervical disc problems, misalignment of the neck vertebrae, and muscle tension. When headaches originate with structural problems, spinal adjustments are an effective method of treatment. Bringing the spine into proper alignment boosts nervous system function; soft tissue massage, passive therapy, and at-home exercises are also used to complement chiropractic adjustments.
If we cannot find a structural problem that is causing your headaches, our next step is to determine if there are chemical triggers causing them. These triggers can be environmental factors, food allergies or sensitivities, or medications you’re taking. While avoiding these triggers is the best solution, this is not always possible, in which case we may recommend supplements to help your body stay in balance.
