At Truspine Chiropractic, most of the patients we treat present with either migraine headaches or tension headaches. Some are new and acute, but most are chronic and ongoing.
Some are the result of previous whiplash injuries that were left untreated or even sports injuries that knocked the spine out of alignment. Even sitting at a desk for long periods with poor posture or bad sleeping positions can lead to chronic headaches.
There is often times associated neck pain, loss of normal sleep patterns, dizziness, poor concentration, and even upper back and shoulder pain.
If your headache comes on suddenly, and there is vomiting, vertigo, and/or loss of vision and the symptoms are severe, especially if there is no trauma associated with it, you may have a medical emergency and should seek emergency medical care. This is very rare.
In our many years treating headaches in the San Francisco area we have helped thousands of headaches sufferers return to more normal lives and stop taking medications that are most likely doing more harm than good.
If you’re a patient suffering with severe migraine headaches and have had brain scans, cat scans, MRI, hearing tests, and was prescribed every headache medication known to man, this may be a good solution for you. Many of our patients are pleasantly surprised when our chiropractor reviews x-rays, gives them a proper diagnosis and guides them on a path to complete relief.
We’ve developed specific protocols for restoring the curve in the neck and reducing nerve pressure which is a primary cause of tension and migraine headaches, as well as other forms of head and neck pain. Our headache doctor (chiropractor) is trained in these protocols.
