Struggling with Headaches in Uniontown?

try chiropractic care for headache and migraine relief

Headaches are not fun, and migraines are another level of awful. Living with either of these issues can make you feel grumpy, and in the worst-case scenario, leave you unable to function. Medication may help in the short term, but when the problem is ongoing or re-occurring, pills are generally not enough. The source of your headaches and migraines is usually structural, and therefore proper treatment can help you overcome this debilitating issue. Headache relief at our Uniontown chiropractic clinic may be the solution you are looking for.

Headaches and Migraines in Uniontown

Whether you are dealing with a persistent ache in your head, or the worst symptoms associated with migraines, including light and noise intolerance, nausea, vomiting, hallucinations, depression, and irritation the cause may be a structural issue. When the spine moves out of position because of developmental issues, trauma, repetitive stress, and other incidents, it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. When the nerves are compressed or irritated, they send a message to the muscles of the back, neck, and jaw to tighten.

This tightness can lead directly to an acute headache or migraine. Over time the tightness can also pull your bones out of alignment leading to more persistent headaches and migraines. A headache or migraine can be a sign that there are deeper problems arising in your spinal column, and because every other system in your body is impacted by your spinal health, it is very important to deal with these issues when the signs begin to arise.

Treatment for Headaches and Migraines Through Spinal Adjustment

Chiropractic care has a long history of successfully treating headaches and migraines. Chiropractors in Uniontown have an extensive understanding of subtle issues occurring in the spine which, due to its connection with the nervous system, is very often the source of pain. A chiropractic treatment starts with a thorough evaluation that will rule out other possible causes of your headache and examine your spine for issues of misalignment.

The assessment will determine the exact type of treatment that is necessary for the specific issue at the root of the pain. Using gentle and non-invasive techniques a chiropractor is able to achieve adjustments to the spine that, although they may seem subtle, can provide almost instant relief and restore your long-term health. Unlike medications that treat the problem on the surface level and provide only short-term relief, a chiropractic adjustment will address the cause of your headache or migraine and provide lasting results that will improve your quality of life.

What are migraines?

Migraines can be caused by a bunch of different things. What do you do when you have had every test for everything and they all come back normal and you still have a headache with no answers. Most people just take the medications and hope they work. After being a Chiropractor for 27 years, I know that Chiropractic adjustments and therapy help some people but not all.

Here is what I have found about migraine headaches. They are an accumulation of heavy metals in the brain. Copper and aluminum are attracted by the brain when the adrenal glands become drained. It's a lot like having a concussion. When you have a concussion you have blood on the brain and the blood contains iron. Iron is a metal that conducts electricity. The iron interferes with normal electrical impulses. The metal creates static in the brain electrical impulses. Copper and aluminum are excellent conductors of electricity. Our electrical lines in our houses are copper. The electrical lines that bring electricity to our houses are aluminum. When the adrenal glands become drained due to stress, caffeine, skipping breakfast, eating too much sugar and white flour our brains attract the metals that cause static in the electrical impulses resulting in migraine headaches.

Treatment for Migraines Through Nutrition

I use hair analysis to check for heavy metals. I also use biomeridian testing to evaluate the adrenal glands as well as the rest of the glands. Based on the testing I perform, I treat each patient specific to their needs.

I make the following recommendations for general migraine relief:

  • No caffeine it runs the adrenal gland down.
  • Eat protein for breakfast.
  • Cut out sugary and white flour foods.
  • Don't skip meals, low blood sugar triggers migraines.
  • Avoid MSG and all 35 names it goes by.
  • Avoid high fructose corn syrup it will cause low blood sugar.

Start with these recommendations. Even though they are general and not specific all my migraine patients must do this too.
