Headaches are common, but they are not normal. Unfortunately, we live in a drug culture where pain relievers of various types are the most common approach to headaches.
In our Chiropractic Functional Medicine practice, we take a different approach to the treatment and prevention of headaches such as migraine and cluster headaches. Most doctors only treat the symptoms of headaches. We specialize in treating of the causes of headaches. With the use of very specialized neurological and functional laboratory analysis, no stone will be left un turned in determining the exact cause of your headaches.
When the upper part of your brainstem, the mesacephalen, over-fires or becomes hyperactive, it causes blood vessels in the head to contract and later expand. This is what causes migraine headaches along with related symptoms. But what causes the brainstem to over-fire? Problems ranging from misaligned vertebra (subluxations) causing neurological weakness, metabolic and autoimmune issues such as Celiac Disease and non-Celiac gluten sensitivities to hidden infections and metal/chemical toxicity could be the reasons. With our neurological and functional assessment, we can pinpoint the cause of your headaches and correct it, so you can have your life back.
