STRUGGLING WITH HEADACHES OR MIGRAINES?
Migraines and headaches are serious and affect too many people in Andover. 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 in most cases, but for many patients that’s not enough. It’s important to find the source of what’s causing the problem.
There are many symptoms that can occur before a headache or migraine starts. Hallucinations, depression, or irritation are just some of the symptoms that patients experience. Often those with migraines will try to avoid light, have an intolerance to loud noises, experience nausea and vomiting to name a few.
Migraines in Andover
It has been shown that chiropractic care is effective at helping people with both headaches and migraines. When the spine is aligned and pressure is removed from the nervous system, it can help relieve the pain and also help prevent headaches and migraines from occurring. While most people know that they should visit the dentist to help prevent tooth decay, most people do not realize they should see a chiropractor to help prevent decay of their spines. Dentists take care of our teeth, which is an important job, but your nervous system controls everything in your body.
For over one hundred years chiropractic care has been giving people relief from headaches and migraines. 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.
