Headaches and Migraines
Headaches (Migraines, Cephalia, Dizziness and Vertigo) are NOT a normal symptom to live with. Unfortunately, it is a very common problem in modern society. Food, hormones, abnormal posture, muscle tension, stress, visual disturbances, hormones, neurological illness, hypertension or cerebral tumors can all be migraine triggers that many people suffer severe pain from.
Studies have shown that chiropractic care helps to reduce the severity, duration and frequency of headaches in many people.
Chiropractic is beneficial for
Working with the root cause
Decreases severity and frequency
Improving physical and mental activity
Decreases negative effects of stress on the nervous system
Increasing general wellbeing
Improve the natural stress adaptive capacities to daily life challenges
Decreasing pain and the need for medication
Improve the quality of life
Performing very precise chiropractic adjustments and correcting a specific vetebral segment, will increase vertebral range of motion, nerve function and blod flow. While removing pressure and interference in the nervous system, the comune symptoms of migraines and headaches can be relieved.
Chiropractic care corrects vertebral position and general range of motion and as a result will increase nerve performance in the comunication between the cervical spine, nerves and brain.
Headache vs Migraine symptoms
- Migraine: The headache manifests as severe and sudden. May be accompanied by visual disturbances, photo sensitivity and sometimes vomiting.
- Headaches: Moderate intensity and very recurrent. Pain is manifested on both sides of the head, creating numbness and compression.
The root causes of headaches can be:
- Emotional stress (nerves and anxiety)
- Physical stress (posture, whiplash etc.)
- Chemical stress (hormonal, alcohol, diet and environmental factors)

Chiropractic care for Vertigo
A chiropractic examination will help to determine the exact cause of your vertigo and recommend the most appropriate, gentle and safe treatment method to overcoming many of the causes. Chiropractic adjustment for many people is key to maintaining and stabilizing the nervous system function and curing the vertigo.
What to Expect
• Decreasing frequency and severity, improving general body function
• Improved cervical blood flow, by improving cervical muscle tone and range of motion
• Determining the causes of inner imbalance and prevent it
Dizziness and Vertigo
The feeling of environment and objects spinning around, feeling out of balance and vomiting is very common to this kind of neurological disorder. Muscular tension, low blood flow and pressure are some risk factors that may contribute to these disorders. Determining the root cause of the vertigo/dizziness is a key factor in the diagnosis and treatment.
Vertigo starts with issues involving head, inner ear, and spine. The disruption in the signals sent from the nerves of the spine to the brain can create dizziness and complex symptoms, thereby disrupting body orientation and balance.
Chiropractic doctors can help determine the cause of the problem; in general patients can expect to experience a decrease in the frequency and severity of the headaches or migraines.
Chiropractors are also trained to alleviate benign postural vertigo by using the Epley Manoeuvre which is a popular and successful therapy in the diagnosis and treatment for this condition.
Most common causes of Vertigo
Severe tension headaches and migraines
Chronic ear aches or damage to the inner ear
A lack of blood flow to the brain
Damage to the spinal joints and ligaments of the spine from car accident
Misalignments of the neck vertebrae
Blurry vision or difficulty focusing
Trouble with balance
Hearing problems in one ear
Feeling fatigued or tired all the time
