Headaches and Migraines in Riverside CA
If you have ever experienced a headache or a migraine in Riverside, CA then you understand uncomfortable and pain. If you think you’ve had a migraine but are not sure, fortunately for you then you probably have never had one. Migraine pain is often described as a debilitation pain and nothing helps. Traditionally headaches and migraines are treated with medication, both over-the-counter and prescription strength. These medications help dull or numb the pain but rare fix the cause. At Chiropractor-Riverside County we find and treat the cause.
Symptoms of headaches and migraines can vary anywhere from neck pain, eye tension, irritability, depression and even hallucinations. When a person is experiencing a severe headache or a migraine they will often avoid light, loud noises, become lightheaded, nauseated and sometimes vomit.
Chiropractic for Migraines
Time and time again doctors of chiropractic are changing lives. A misalignment in the spine creates pressure on the nerves and by aligning the spine and removing the pressure, the occurrence of headaches can be minimized and sometimes stop all together. Everyone knows that you go to the dentist to prevent cavities but it is not a common train of thought to go to a chiropractor to prevent headaches, migraines and other conditions. Chiropractors do not just “move bones” but they take care of the nervous system. Why is this so important? Because the nervous system controls everything in your entire body.
The treatment that your doctor will choose will depend on the true cause of your migraine or headache. When you start care, your past and current health will be reviewed and an extensive exam will be performed to track the source of the headaches. People spend hundreds of dollars a year purchasing Ibuprofen, Tylenol and other drugs to help with the pain but this is unlikely to treat the cause. Your doctor will work with you to find the cause and work with you to prevent your need for medication for headaches again.
