Ask the Doctor: “My co-worker complains about constant headaches. Does chiropractic work for migraines?”

The answer is: Yes! Chiropractic is actually one of the most effective solutions for Headaches. It is a common myth that headache pain comes only from stress. Many people wonder how headaches occur. Headaches are caused from a blockage in the neck or spine. In the same way that back pain can be caused from a blockage in the spine!

Picture a congested expressway. When you are under stressful situations your heart rate increases and other vital signs increase. This causes a “traffic jam” on the expressway.

When there are problems with the spine and vital signs increase due to stress – which in combination block the body’s ability to cope with the situation adequately – that is when you get a headache. A headache is your body trying to tell you that there is a blockage somewhere in the neck or spine.

This makes perfect sense if you think about it. Your body is trying to tell you what’s wrong and showing the pathway to fixing it!  The next time you or someone you know experiences a headache; remember that it is your body’s way of letting you know that it’s time to remove the blockage!

What if someone you love has been suffering headaches? If they have had frequent headaches occurring 2 or more times weekly, you should seek an appointment with a chiropractor as soon as possible before the problem progresses.
