If you have ever experienced a severe headache or a migraine, you know what suffering is. You probably have Tylenol at the ready and usually miss out on activities you wish you could participate in, spend a lot of time in a dark room or go to bed early hoping you'll wake up headache-less the next morning. Severe headaches can be life changing, and Tylenol does not get to the root of the problem.
You might even have a prescription that's a bit stronger than Tylenol. You may even have had blood work done which still won't get to the root of the problem. I would suggest trying chiropractic as an alternative to taking medication.
Your chiropractor will do a thorough evaluation with X-rays to get to the root of the problem. Your chiropractor will explain what is going on and what they plan to do to fix the problem. Recommended care can vary based on your specific problem. However, within a few weeks of consistent care you should notice a difference in your headaches.
The reason chiropractic is the best way to detect and correct headaches and migraines is because chiropractors focus on your nervous system. However, there might be other factors contributing to your headaches or migraines like: family history, other health conditions, intake of artificial sweeteners or sensitivity to artificial preservatives, lack of sleep, dehydration, poor posture, extended screen time, using the wrong pillow, stomach sleeping, etc. Making changes in some of these areas, where possible, can help improve your headaches and migraines as well, however as many changes as you make chiropractic is the missing key.
Even after improving other areas of your life, if your nervous system isn't communicating properly, headaches & migraines can be a common symptom. Your body will need time to adapt to the changes your chiropractor makes, so don't expect a miracle over night. Make sure to follow their recommendations, stay hydrated, and of course, ask questions so you can feel informed and empowered to improve your health in a natural way!
