Is There a Natural Solution to Headaches?

Written By Platinum Chiropractic on April 1, 2019

Did you know that half of the global population suffers from headaches at least once per year? It's one of the most common central nervous system disorders.

If you experience chronic headaches, you may think that your only choice is to take a pill when pain arises and hope for the best until your next episode.

By encouraging proper alignment in your central nervous system, it’s possible you can free yourself from headaches for good. Here’s how.

Chiropractic in Eden Prairie to Help the Body Heal Itself

Not every headache is the same. Which type of headache do you suffer from most often?

  • Tension headaches: Pain spans around the entire head and often radiates down into the neck. Episodes can last anywhere from a few hours to several days. Chronic tension headaches feel debilitating.
  • Migraines: This intense pulsing pain can last a few hours or several days. You may experience nausea and the pain often gets worse with physical activity. Inflammatory chemicals in the brain trigger this headache.
  • Cluster headaches: These are short but intensely painful headaches usually behind one eye. The eye may become red and the accompanying nostril may run or become blocked.

If you experience recurring headaches, there’s a good chance it’s caused by a structural shift in your spine. This misalignment can put pressure on nerves, promote tension, and cause the body to release inflammatory compounds – all of which lead to headaches.

By encouraging a healthy environment for the spine to thrive, this eases tension and removes nerve obstruction. Chiropractic care targets the cause of headaches at its source: the central nervous system.

In one case study, a patient previously suffering from severe chronic migraines had no attacks at a six-month follow-up after her treatment.

The experienced team of doctors at Platinum Chiropractic in Eden Prairie strives to correct underlying problems that lead to the source of pain.
