Headaches/Migraine Treatment in San Mateo
While drugs often reduce symptoms, chiropractic care addresses the underlying cause of many types of headaches.
Headaches are common, but they're not normal.
While convenient, drugs that numb your nervous system have side effects, such as kidney failure or liver damage. Worse, they don’t actually correct the underlying cause of the headache.
A common cause of headaches is from spinal bones in the neck that aren’t supporting the head properly. You might not notice your reduced ability to turn your head. But these subluxations affect nerves, muscles and even the blood supply to your head. Our thorough examination detects subluxation patterns that could be causing your headaches. If subluxations are present, you’re likely to benefit from chiropractic care.
Some are surprised to learn that their headaches are being caused by problems in their lower back! The upper spine compensates, shifting the head off center, causing headaches. While we can’t guarantee results we have a high success rate with patients who get headaches. Give us a Call. Let's sit down and discuss your unique situation.
