Are headaches a concern in your life?
Does your brain feel like it’s going to explode from migraines?
This time of year, we hear more and more frequently from people suffering from chronic headaches. With the holidays just around the corner and the extreme fluctuation in the weather, it’s no surprise that most of us are under more stress than usual.
This month we want to explain WHY you may be living with headaches.
Headaches are one of the most common conditions people seek help from a doctor, affecting nearly 40M people in the US alone! Every 10 seconds someone goes to the ER for head pain. Headaches can come in many forms depending on their unique characteristics, which makes it difficult for traditional doctors to diagnose and treat.
The reality is that many of these forms of headaches like migraines, tension headaches, or cluster headaches all have traits that overlap.
In these circumstances, the reason for headaches can be traced to a shift in the spine’s foundation.
The very top of the spine, known as Atlas acts as the foundation between the brain and body. Injuries like concussions, car accidents, or slip & falls cause the Atlas to shift out of its normal position.
This shift may block important blood vessels in and out of the brain, stress the spinal cord and nerves, and create tension in muscles of the back of the skull.
Since this part of the spine has such a big impact on the brain, it’s no surprise that a Foundational Shift is often the underlying reason for frequent headaches and migraines.
Rather than focus on temporarily numbing your headache with traditional approaches like drugs, injections, or manipulation, at Balance Chiropractic we aim for a long-term solution – correcting the source of your headaches without ever popping, twisting, or cracking.
