Headaches and Migraines
According to the World Health Organization, headaches are the number one disorder of the nervous system, affecting over 50 percent of adults. But why is this condition so common?
Three Main Causes of Headaches and Migraines
- A structural imbalance or curve in the spine that puts pressure on a nerve. This pressure can travel up through your back and into the nerves around your brain causing pain.
- Food sensitivities from an imbalance in the digestive system.
- Hormonal imbalances and fluctuations can trigger headaches as well.
Often times a combination of these three factors creates a perfect storm for pain and discomfort. That is why when treating headaches in our clinic, we carefully consider all factors and develop a treatment plan specifically designed for you.
