Chiropractic for Headache Migraines
Chiropractic is a kind of alternative treatment focusing in the structure and condition bones, tissues, joints especially the spinal cord and how all of these are functioning. Chiropractic is done for several reasons : adjusting the spine because of misalignments, to reduce low back pain, improve the function and movement of the injured part, support the body to heal itself naturally.
Today, Chiropractic is one of the the famous alternative treatment. The meaning of this treatment
is "treatment by hand" and this is exactly what Chiropractor does. They use their hands to treat their patients and every procedure is done manually like spine adjustments.
There are two types of Chiropractor, "straight" chiropractor and "mixed" chiropractor. "Straight" chiropractors treat headaches by manipulating the spine to correct subluxation and other imbalances while mixed chiropractic treatment for headaches is a combination of manipulation and other therapies,
focusing on reducing the tension in the neck muscles.
Chiropractors believe that :
- Every body part and movements are mutually connected to each other and that the body has a natural way of healing itself that can be improved through the help of a Chiropractor.
- When body parts and systems are synchronized, patients can expect to have a healthier body.
- A healthy nervous system, particularly the spine, is the key to a healthy body. The spinal cord carries information throughout the body and is responsible for all bodily functions including voluntary movements (such as walking) and involuntary functions (such as breathing). When systems of the body are in balance, it is called homeostasis. Bones, muscles and nerve disorders can disrupt homeostasis and increase the risk of disease and other health problems.
Chiropractor is the doctor of Chiropractic, they believe that a healthy body must have a healthy spine. Chiropractors treat every patient based on the spinal condition. They are responsible in giving advice for improvement and inform patients what they will go through before undergoing a spinal adjustment. They are not just ordinary individuals, Chiropractors are professionals and highly trained on this field. Patients must ask for a consultation, Chiropractors will assess the condition of the patient, medical tests are required and based on the results a personalized treatment plan will be developed.
