Having a headache can put a real damper on the day, particularly if you find yourself sitting at work with a stack of papers to get through.

More than 250 million workdays are missed due to headaches. So, isn’t it time you found out what was going on so that you can go back to your daily life? While headaches are typically not a sign of something serious, they can certainly affect your quality of life.
There are many factors that can trigger a headache including,
- Excessive alcohol consumption
- Poor diet
- Excessive noise
As a chiropractic specialist in Brunswick, GA, we see many patients coming in complaining of headaches. Many headaches are due to chiropractic issues, particularly originating in the neck. If there is a misalignment in the bones of the neck this can put unnecessary pressure on certain nerves and muscles in the neck and even decrease blood flow to this area. Fortunately, headaches often respond well to chiropractic treatment.
Even those with severe headaches may find the relief they’ve desperately been looking for through spinal adjustments (sometimes also called spinal manipulation). By applying a controlled amount of force to these misaligned regions we are able to realign the spine and take pressure off the nerves and muscles of the neck and back to reduce irritation and improve mobility. Prior to any spinal adjustments, we will also examine your posture and curvature of the spine to see if there are any conditions that could be affecting your alignment. If a condition is to blame, this will require immediate medical attention.
However, great candidates for chiropractic care can find the headache relief they need with us. Back to Health Chiropractic in Brunswick, GA, alleviate everything from neck to leg pain. You shouldn’t just live with pain. Call us today to schedule your next chiropractic appointment.
