Do you suffer from frequent headaches?
Do you know the reason why you experience these headaches?
Headaches are one of the top complaints that chiropractors treat. A lot of people find relief with getting chiropractic adjustments, while others do not. What is the reason behind this?
Headaches can be structural issue or they can be coming from another source. Here are a few reasons why you may be experiencing them…
- upper neck tension
- poor posture that affects the neck
- head trauma (restrictions in cranial bones of the skull)
- hormone imbalances
- food aversions
- lack of sleep
- problems with blood sugar
- mineral deficiencies
- long term exposure to blue light
- sensitivity to personal care products/synthetic fragrances
If your headaches are not relieved with chiropractic adjustments and cranial work, further investigation may need to be done using functional medicine. Figuring out the root cause of your headaches can help to reduce the occurrence of them or eliminate them. Functional medicine is the best way to figure out what may be going on in the body.
