Chiropractic Care for Headaches & Migraines in Encino

Safe, Effective & Drug-Free Treatment Options

If you are one of the millions of Americans suffering from headaches or migraines, you most certainly are not alone. While headaches can vary widely in severity and duration, including occasional or chronic, roughly 90% of Americans are affected by this condition at some point in the lives. When headaches and migraines become severe or frequent enough to affect one's daily life, safe and effective treatment options should be explored. At Atlas Health Care Center, our Encino chiropractors treat numerous patients suffering from headaches and migraines, many of whom have suffered from serious even debilitating pain that affects their ability to complete even the most basic tasks.

While drugs and medications are the most popular form of pain management for headaches, they only disguise the symptoms and fail to fully address the underlying condition. Throughout the years, numerous studies have found that spinal manipulation, including chiropractic care, can be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck. Furthermore, chiropractic adjustments offer patients the advantage of eliminating the risks and side effects associated with pain medications.

Causes & Treatment

Headaches occur, in the most basic terms, when nerves in the head transmit pain signals to the brain. While the specific cause of this pain signal transmission remains unclear, many studies have found that headaches can be triggered by a variety of factors. Additionally, a majority of headaches, including migraines, are not caused by any underlying condition. Diet and nutrition, environmental factors such as light and stress, and poor posture are known triggers. Muscle tension in the neck is also considered one of the most common headache triggers. As more Americans engage in sedentary activity, such as sitting as a desk for prolonged periods of time, they increase joint irritation and muscle tension in the neck and upper back. Such strain can cause headaches. Chiropractic care for headaches and migraines focuses on adjustments and spinal manipulations that improve function and range of motion of the spine, thereby alleviating tension. Relieving tension can significantly reduce stress on the body's system.
