Headaches and migraines can make you feel helpless. You can get control over your headaches and migraines with the help of a chiropractor. Dr. Langschied at Kentucky Injury and Rehab explains how. We provide quality chiropractic care for residents in Louisville, Dixie, and Shively, KY.
It is a common misconception that a chiropractor merely “cracks backs.” Chiropractors look at your whole life to see how each piece of your life’s puzzle makes a picture of just what is triggering your headaches and migraines. Chiropractors have digital x-rays to make sure there isn’t an undetected injury or growth. Different types of therapy are then included as parts of a personalized treatment plan.
When your spine is out of alignment, the muscles and nerves throughout the central nervous system cannot function properly. Parts of the inner anatomy may press on nerves, causing them to send pain signals. Proper alignment helps reduce pain by supporting improved circulation to get vital nutrients to injured areas of the body.
The way you sit, stand, and sleep can cause your spine to go out of alignment, or create extra pressure on your nerves. A chiropractor helps you get into positions that not only feel comfortable but help your body as well. This way, you can learn how to help yourself.
It is not enough to just get a treatment and then do nothing until the next treatment. You need to stay active to help your body’s natural healing abilities function at their best. This is where regular exercise comes plays its part. Regular exercise can also help you sleep better. Poor sleep greatly contributes to headaches and migraine attacks. You may also be asked to keep a diary of your headaches and migraines, so you can determine if anything specific triggers your attacks.
