Chiropractic Health Clinic of Omaha provides an alternative treatment that not only works to relieve headache pain but also restores normal function to the nervous system.
Nine out of ten Americans suffer from headaches. Some headaches are occasional while some are more frequent, some are dull and throbbing, and some cause debilitating pain. Almost all headaches are tension, migraine, or cluster headaches and are treatable by chiropractic.
The doctors at Chiropractic Health Clinic will use physical, orthopedic, and neurological tests to pinpoint the potential cause of the headache. The use of specific spinal adjustments will be used to improve spinal alignment, reduce nerve irritation, reduce muscle tension, and improve blood flow and circulation. Other therapies may also be used to assist in the treatment of the headaches as trigger point therapy.
Tension Headaches are a result of muscular tension in the head, neck and shoulders. This tension leads to changes in normal posture and movement of the spine in order to compensate. The changes and misalignment of the spine places pressure on the surrounding nerve(s) and causes the pain. Chiropractic releases the muscle tension and realigns the spinal structures. Relief of the headache is often experienced immediately after the adjustment.
Migraine Headaches have certain triggers that cause a dilation of the blood vessels in the head due to over active signaling in the nervous system. Chiropractic treats migraines by adjusting misaligned spinal vertebrae that are irritating nerves that control vascular tension and function. The spinal adjustments improve blood flow by reducing irritation to the nerves and improving nervous system function.
More and more Americans are engaged in sedentary activities than they used to and more hours are spent in one fixed position or posture. This prolonged posture and fixed position causes an increase in joint irritation and muscle tension in the neck, upper back and scalp, causing your head to ache.
