Recurring migraines could be related to chemical imbalances that exist within the body. These are problems that develop when nerve to brain communication is not ideal. This usually happens when messages between the nerves and brain are compromised by spinal subluxations or areas of misalignment.
Subluxations can result in chemical imbalances, mood swings and migraines. Correcting these will improve nerve to brain communication. It will also make various physical symptoms abate.
Physical tension can also develop as the result of alignment issues and this can also lead to chronic headaches. This tension can exist in the neck, head and facial muscles. By correcting subluxations, pressure and stress in nearby muscles, thereby reducing the frequency of migraine headaches.
Certain forms of chiropractic equipment can be used in this therapy as well in order to create improved alignment and reduce the duration and severity of headaches. Circulation can be improved and spinal tension can be alleviated through the use of inversion tables. Inflammation and pain can be resolved by using ultrasound therapies to limit swelling and improve mobility in specific areas.
A chiropractor can also make an in-depth review of your life habits in order to determine whether any activities or events are contributing to you discomfort. Entering into a smoking cessation program, limiting alcohol consumption or addressing nutritional deficiencies are just a few of the actions that you can take to improve your overall health. Your provider will make a number of recommendations concerning your life habits, so that your body can function and feel better overall.
