Migraine Headache Relief — Bilan Chiropractic Anchorage

Did you know that headaches can often be caused when spinal bones located in the neck region aren’t properly supporting the head? Your decreased range of motion when you turn your head can quickly go unnoticed. In addition, spine misalignment can create uncomfortable ailments such as muscle stiffness and additional stress on nerves that help with blood flow to your head.

Here are some of the ways that chiropractic treatment from Bilan Chiropractic helps reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches, in addition to reducing the need for pharmaceutical pain relief:

  • Reduces muscle stiffness and tension
  • Restoration of normal blood flow
  • Spinal adjustment leads to proper nerve pathway communication
  • Reduction of nerve irritation reduces pain signals being sent to the brain
  • Strengthens muscle structures that provide support for the spine
  • Identification of potential triggers
  • Chiropractic unlocks the body’s natural healing properties

Frequently Asked Questions

The spine isn’t necessarily the main culprit of all headaches. Three more common reasons can include chemical toxins, emotional stresses, or even an exterior element such as physical trauma. It’s not uncommon to have a mix of all three of these factors. With our thorough evaluation and exam, we can pinpoint what’s causing your headaches.
The reasons subluxations happen are threefold. First, there could be physical movements or causes such as slips and falls, improper form when lifting weights, accidents, or using the same motion repeatedly. Second, there are emotional factors as well, including stress or other feelings such as fear. Finally, you also have to include chemicals, including drugs, alcohol, improper diet, and even pollution.
Most patients with sciatica are pleased with the results after a few weeks or months, but everyone is different. Instability with the spine can often occur if patients neglect treatment for years on end. These individuals often elect to continue with regular checkups for chiropractic care.

Essentially, pain is pain, but psychological sources are never ruled out. There are times when nurse practitioners diagnose a psychological reason when every other cause has been considered. Most of the time, an unknown subluxation is a reason for pain.

Some patients will experience results rather quickly. Other individuals will often take note of the steady decrease in symptoms after weeks of chiropractic care. However, it’s important to realize that predicting the amount of time to see results is impossible. Sufferers who’ve had chronic headaches for years or longer can take a fair amount of time before they see results.
There may seldom be times when we can’t find the origin of your health concerns or problems. In this case, we can refer you to another professional to get the care you need. Your health and well-being are our top priorities.
Holistic care is no longer viewed with a particular bias like it used to be. More of the general public wants to help with their symptoms without resulting in dangerous drugs or surgery. As a result, you’ll see more medical doctors referring their clients to chiropractic care.
