Headache and Migraine Pain Relief
Headaches and migraine complaints are continually on the rise in both adults and children and they affect people in a number of ways. Most people suffering from headaches and migraines experience lack of productivity at work, problems in relationships (social, workplace, family,) trouble sleeping at night, and notice a gradual decline in their overall health. This gradual decline can bring about changes to their emotional well-being, constant feelings of tiredness and fatigue, and no longer enjoying the activities they once looked forward to. At Keystone Physical Medicine in Boise, Idaho our team of experts are dedicated to providing you a solution to your headaches.
What is Causing My Headaches?
Headaches occur for a reason, it is your body’s way of signaling you that something isn’t right. Headaches can be traced back to misalignments in your neck caused by poor posture, certain events, automobile and workplace accidents, emotional stress, chemical stress, physical stress, sports injuries, diet, dehydration, and more. Unfortunately, many headache and migraine sufferers have learned to “deal” with the problem by taking pain medication, avoiding social functions, delaying important events or vacations, and pretty soon their migraines and headaches are ruling their schedules and their lives. This is not normal!
At Keystone Physical Medicine, we get to the root cause of your headaches and fix it permanently. We are experts at determining what type of headaches you have and developing a customized treatment plan for you.
What Can a Chiropractor Do to Help?
Headaches are one the most common conditions seen in chiropractic offices. Over the last decade, headaches represented 13% of chiropractic patient’s presenting complaints. At Keystone Physical Medicine, we combine our Chiropractic care within our integrated approach. Doctors of Chiropractic recognize that a headache could be attributed to muscle tension and irritation of the nerves and blood vessels in the neck. Cervical vertebrae can become misaligned and irritate the nerve roots in the neck and may even cause minor constriction in some vessels which decreases blood supply to the brain and cause a headache.
We approach headaches from a naturalistic view. Chiropractors identify subluxation patterns (misaligned bones) in the spinal column, which puts unneeded pressure on the exiting nerves and blood vessels. This simple movement in or out of place can cause headaches.
Our Corrective Chiropractic Care method realigns the spine back to its normal curvature and alleviates unnecessary pressure on the nerves in your neck. By alleviating pressure on the nerves, our patients feel relief immediately and the frequency of headaches and migraines decreases. Our patients rely on us to take care of their headaches, migraines, and neck pain, and we are confident we can help you as well. Our treatment techniques are natural, non-invasive, pain free and non-surgical. At Keystone Physical Medicine, we aim to alleviate your headaches, restore function and energy throughout your body, and get patients back to optimal health.
