Headache & Migraine Treatments

Headaches and migraines are among the most common physical ailments experienced by the general population. Lifestyle habits, poor posture, spinal misalignment and environmental conditions may all contribute to the development of unrelenting head pain. Unfortunately, severe, persistent headaches can disrupt your life, often affecting your ability to work and enjoy daily activities. If you struggle with persistent headaches or debilitating migraines, Dr. Mark Illguth at Revolution Chiropractic in Miami, Queensland, can help you find relief and explain potential causes for your problems.

Chiropractic care is a safe and effective headache solution for individuals who prefer to avoid drug-based, conventional treatments. Through precise spinal correction, specific chiropractic adjustments work to realign your vertebrae, unobstruct nerves, relieve tension and restore normal functioning.

What to Expect With Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches and Migraines

Conservative spinal correction techniques can help alleviate headache and migraine problems by restoring normal alignment of your spinal vertebrae. Remedial massages are also beneficial in releasing tension, breaking up scarred tissue, improving blood flow and restoring normal muscle function.

When your cervical (neck) vertebrae become misaligned, this abnormal shift can lead to nerve impingements that produce headaches. When this occurs, the muscles on either side of your neck may also tense up to provide added stability for your spine. Unfortunately, this phenomenon only exacerbates your discomfort. At Revolution Chiropractic, we aim to relieve your headaches by locating and addressing their source.

When you visit us for headache or migraine treatment, we’ll perform a thorough physical evaluation, which may include a series of digital structural x-rays to locate existing neck abnormalities. We’ll also conduct a thorough health history ask you about your, lifestyle and daily practices to help us make an informed diagnosis. After we’ve gathered and evaluated the information we need, we’ll determine an individualized treatment plan designed to correct cervical (neck) issues, reduce tension and relieve your headaches.

Health Benefits of Chiropractic Treatments For Headaches and Migraines

At Revolution Chiropractic, our treatments aim to address the underlying causes behind your headache and migraine pain. While the majority of conventional treatments merely mask or suppress discomfort through the use of medications, we treat the source of the problem to deliver long-term relief. NeuroStructural Chiropractic care for headache relief offer the following benefits:

Reduced Reliance on Pain Medication
When you address your pain by popping pills, you’re only putting a Band-aid on your symptoms — not correcting the problem. And when you merely mask your symptoms, they’ll inevitably return. Because Corrective chiropractic aims to address the source of your discomfort, you can reduce or even eliminate pain medications from your daily routine.

Improved Mobility
When your cervicalspine (neck) is out of alignment, you not only experience headaches, but you also alter your posture and the way you move. This compensation often results in reduced range of motion and discomfort with certain movements. By performing corrective adjustments, we restore appropriate cervical alignment, allowing you to move freely, function better and heal properly.

Improved Posture
Forward head posture is extremely common and can result in loss of normal cervical curvature. When this occurs, the muscles on either side of your neck elongate and weaken. As a result, your neck loses stability, which only exacerbates your posture issues and discomfort. With corrective chiropractic adjustments, we focus on restoring your normal cervical curvature, allowing you to hold your head in the proper position without pain.

Common Headache and Migraine Symptoms

Most people are familiar with the symptoms of a common headache. More severe headaches — migraines, tension headaches, cluster headaches, etc. — present a more painful and debilitating symptoms set, which may include:

  • Vision abnormalities
  • Tingling or numbness of the face or limbs
  • Sensitivity to light, sound and odors
  • Nausea, vomiting, upset stomach
  • Dizziness and fatigue
  • Scalp and upper body muscle tenderness
  • Pain behind the eye that radiates to other areas of the head or face
