The chiropractors at Vitality Chiropractic & Family Wellness in Wake Forest are acutely aware that headaches can have a negative impact to our daily lives. They can affect our ability to concentrate, read, perform duties at work, and function in our personal and professional relationships.
There are many types of headaches, and there is no one treatment fits all for people who suffer from them. Often times, a misalignment of the neck or cervical spine can lead to headaches. Muscle tension, and trigger points in the head and neck region can often times be the source of headaches. There may also be a diet, environmental, or hormonal component to the headaches.
During your first visit to Vitality Chiropractic and Family Wellness, your doctor will ask questions about your symptoms as well as perform an exam to determine the possible cause of the headache. Some cases may need further testing, such as x-ray or MRI.
Chiropractic adjustments are used to help people with headaches. The adjustment may help by restoring communication between the brain and body. The muscle spasms and tension reduces when the nerves are able to communicate better with the tissues. The adjustment will also help improve the mobility of the spinal joints, and reducing muscular tension of the neck and head. Your Vitality doctor will also determine if any supplements are needed or diet/environmental changes need to be made.
