You know how our Chattanooga & North Georgia chiropractors can relieve your back pain and neck pain, but were you aware that we could reduce the intensity of your headaches and migraines? Yes, it’s true – we offer all-natural pain relief for headaches!

Causes and Symptoms of Headaches & Migraines 

Headaches can wreck your productivity and leave you in pain for hours or even days. The pain can grip your head like a vise, place pressure on your forehead or eyes, or cause tingling and sensitivity in your head and neck muscles. Many people experience difficulty reading or develop sensitivity to sound, odors, or light when experiencing a migraine. If you get regular headaches, you know how disruptive they can be to your quality of life.

While there are many causes of headaches, the biggest cause is tension in the muscles that surround your head. When our chiropractor makes adjustments to your cervical spine, we directly reduce the neck tension that contributes to your headaches.

Other headache triggers include lifestyle habits, such as eating certain foods, stress, or not drinking enough water. We will go over your lifestyle habits, educating you on possible headache triggers that could be increasing your headaches or migraines.

How Our Atlas Total Health Chiropractors Relieves Headaches 

Our chiropractor checks for spinal misalignments and areas of muscle tension that may contribute to your headaches. Then, we unwind muscle tension by restoring your postural alignment and relieving trigger points in the neck and shoulders that may cause headaches.

Our treatment will reduce the triggers of your headaches, so you experience fewer headaches. Some patients feel a dramatic improvement right away, while others notice a slower reduction of their symptoms.

If you seek an alternative method to relieve headache pain that does not involve taking pain medication every day, give chiropractic a try!
