Migraine Headache Relief — Bilan Chiropractic Anchorage

A common cause of headaches is from spinal bones in the neck that aren’t supporting the head properly. You might not notice your reduced ability to turn your head. Misalignment of the spine can cause muscle stiffness and stress the nerves that facilitate blood flow to the head. This, in turn, can trigger a migraine headache.

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

It’s up to you.
The pain you feel is real. And psychological sources of pain are common.

In these cases, we’ve often found that undetected subluxations are likely culprits.
Some patients enjoy results quickly. Others notice a slow decline in their symptoms after several weeks or longer of chiropractic care. It’s impossible to predict. If you’ve had chronic headaches for many years, improvement can take time. We monitor your progress and modify our recommendations as needed.
If we’re unable to find and correct the cause of your particular health problem, we will refer to other experts who may be able to help. Your health and your satisfaction are our only goal.
