Headaches are one of the most common symptoms that we tend to try to push aside and cover up with NSAIDS and pain medications. If you notice that despite the temporary relief, your headache always comes back, then you most likely have an underlying cause…most commonly spinal misalignments. When the nerve roots that exit out of the neck, get pinched or endure pressure, our bodies respond by sending us a signal that something is wrong. A headache can be that signal. An injury or trauma like a car accident, for example, can take the lordotic curve out of your neck. This puts a lot of extra pressure on nerves and often results in chronic headaches and neck pain. Chiropractors can address the loss of curvature and make corrections, including spinal adjustments, exercises, and stretches. Chiropractic treatments can restore the neck’s curvature and heal the associated nerves. Call Strive today to target the root cause of your pain signal and get rid of those headaches once and for all!
