HEADACHES & MIGRAINES

Cervicogenic Headaches occur when joints and/or muscles are dysfunctional in the neck. This can cause pain in the head from a variety of sources:

 

  • Compression of nerves that innervate the head
  • Referred pain into the head from the neck from tight muscles
  • Referred pain into the head from joints in the neck that are not moving properly

Upon physical examination, it can be easily determined if this is the cause of your head pain. Once diagnosed, comprehensive treatment to eliminate the cause of the pain can yield highly successful outcomes.

MIGRAINE

A study was preformed in Australia at the Chiropractic Research Center of Macquarie University that proved that chiropractic care helps migraines. One hundred seventy-seven volunteers who had migraines for over eighteen years on average were used. The volunteers who received chiropractic care showed a statistically significant improvement in migraine frequency, duration, and disability! Those who received chiropractic care were also able to considerably reduce the amount of medication they were taking, some eliminating the use of medication altogether.

There are also other procedures our physicians can do to eliminate your migranes if conservative treatment fails. Similar medications to BOTOX® injections can eliminate those unwanted migraines.
