Studies show that 9 out of 10 people suffer from occasional headaches, while 7 out of 10 people suffer from frequent headache pain, including migraine headaches. While many sufferers search for relief through a variety of medications, these are only temporary solutions. Research has shown that chiropractic can not only relieve the pain of headaches but correct the cause of them.
The spinal cord houses numerous nerves that run from the head to the feet. These nerves send messages to every part of the body. When spinal bones become misaligned, they can cause interference with the spinal nerves. When there is interference with these nerves, it causes stress and strain on the nerves surrounding the brain and can cause inflamed blood vessels. This stress and inflammation causes the pain associated with headaches.
Chiropractic focuses on maintaining the correct structure of the spine. When the spinal bones are in correct position, the muscles that support the head are relieved of stress and spasms. Both the relaxation of the muscles in the back and the correct alignment of the spinal bones, relieve the spinal nerves of the pressure and allow the correct flow of energy through the nerves.
