Headache and Migraine Relief in Portland
Migraines and headaches are serious and affect many people in Portland. If you're not sure if you have had a migraine or not, then chances are you probably have not had one. The pain can be mind-numbing, and for many patients, it leaves them unable to function. The traditional medical system relies on medication for this issue, but for many patients, that's not enough. It's important to find the source of what's causing the problem. Our Portland chiropractic office can help.
There are many symptoms that can occur before a headache or migraine starts. Hallucinations, depression, or irritation are some of the symptoms those with migraines may experience. Often those with migraines will try to avoid any light, have an intolerance to loud noises, experience nausea, and vomiting to name a few.
Headaches and Migraines in Portland
It has been shown many times that chiropractic care is effective at helping people with migraines. When the spine is aligned and pressure is removed from the nervous system, this will prevent migraine headaches from occurring. While most people know that they should visit the dentist they are not sure that they need to visit the chiropractor. Dentists take care of our teeth which is an important job, but your spine and nervous system control everything in your body.
For over one hundred years chiropractic care has been giving people relief from headaches and migraines. Portland chiropractors know and understand the nervous system's master role in the body. If the spine moves out of position it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. This pressure can result in many problems, but it can also result in headaches.
So How are Headaches Treated?
The kind of treatment for headaches will depend on what is causing the headaches. Our chiropractors work diligently to find the source of your headaches to help you to overcome them. Each year millions of dollars are spent treating headaches with aspirin and other drugs. While this may help in some cases, it is often not treating the cause of the problem. Chiropractors are able to work at the source of the problem, which can help you prevent the need for headache medications.
