Headaches and migraines are issues that can leave people feeling grumpy, ill, and in some cases, completely unable to function. Most people turn to medication, which can offer a quick-fix, but fails to provide a solution for the underlying problem. Frequently, headaches and migraines are caused by a structural problem related to the spine or nerves. Chiropractic care at Advanced Healthcare is often an effective form of Fort Collins headache and migraine treatment to alleviate tension and misalignment.

The Underlying Cause of Headaches and Migraines

The symptoms of headaches and migraines can range from a dull, aching pain in the head to severe symptoms like nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, vomiting, depression, and hallucinations. When there is a structural issue with the spine, such as a misalignment from trauma or developmental issues, nerves can become compressed, which causes surrounding muscles to tighten in the neck, jaw, and back. These tight muscles can cause the onset of a headache or migraine, and over time, result in chronic headache and migraine pain.

Fort Collins Headache Treatment & Chiropractic

Since the spine is intricately connected to the nervous system, misalignment and injuries often cause headache and migraine pain. For this reason, chiropractic care has long been used to treat this type of pain. To ensure that chiropractic treatment is right for you, one of our doctors will rule out any other causes of your headache and migraine pain, and examine the spine to check for any misalignment. Through gentle and non-invasive spinal adjustments, your chiropractor can help relieve pain and improve your long-term health. Chiropractic adjustments treat the root of headache and migraine pain, unlike medications, which only treat the symptoms.
