Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches and Migraines in Fairfax, VA
Most people turn to over-the-counter and prescription pain relievers for headaches and migraines, but these merely address the symptoms you’re experiencing, not the underlying cause of your pain. At Palmercare, we see headaches as a sign of disequilibrium in the body. Our treatments help restore balance for long-term relief.
One common reason why you might experience chronic headaches and migraines is structural issues within the body, including muscle tension, cervical disc problems, poor posture, and misalignment of the neck vertebrae. Headaches that are caused by such issues are effectively treated by spinal manipulation. Adjusting the spine to achieve proper alignment allows for better nervous system function, while a combination of soft tissue massage, passive therapy, and at-home exercises can also be used to relieve immediate symptoms and provide lasting headache relief.
In the absence of structural issues, we next look to see if there are chemical triggers causing your headaches. Chemical triggers can include food sensitivities, medications you’re currently taking, or environmental factors. The best solution for this type of headache is to avoid triggers, but failing that, we can recommend dietary supplements to help your body stay in balance.
