try chiropractic care for headache and migraine relief

Sometimes headaches can be caused by pinched nerves and/or tight muscles in the neck and back. Often chiropractic adjustments and massage can provide relief from migraines, tension headaches, and cluster headaches. Headaches are defined as an ache or pain affecting your upper neck or head areas. Originating from irritated or inflamed structures and soft tissues surrounding your brain or skull, headaches may last 30 minutes, several hours, or as long as several days. Headache pain in Batavia can be sharp, dull, intermittent, intense, mild, or throbbing. Causes of headaches range from lack of sleep and illness to eye strain, high blood pressure, and food allergies.


Headache Pain in Batavia

Recurring headaches require ongoing treatment that not only addresses the underlying reason for chronic headaches but also helps eliminate the need for pain medications often producing unwanted physical effects. Your Batavia IL chiropractor offers comprehensive, holistic headache treatment using principles of chiropractic medicine that focus on optimizing nervous system dysfunction due to misaligned spinal vertebrae and irritated nerve endings.


Types of Headaches

  • Tension Headaches - Triggered by the neck and upper back muscle strain, cervicogenic (tension) headaches occur when your neck is forced to remain in one position for an extended period. Muscle tension in the upper back and neck may irritate cervical nerve roots and worsen headache pain. If you have a tension headache, you may also experience a feeling of pressure around the top of your head and over your forehead.
  • Migraine Headaches - Throbbing, intense pain affecting one side of the head, accompanied by nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light, and dizziness, maybe a migraine. Instead of prescribing pain medications, your Batavia IL chiropractor treats migraines with spinal adjustments to repair biomechanical issues affecting the cervical (neck) spine, improve nervous system functioning and relieve blood vessel constriction responsible for migraine pain.
  • Sinus Headaches - Sinusitis pain is mostly felt around your nose and cheekbones, above your eyes, and sometimes in your upper teeth roots. Your chiropractor in Geneva IL alleviates sinusitis headache pain by adjusting your spinal vertebrae to facilitate sinus drainage. Nerve compression caused by a misaligned spine can prevent sinuses from draining by inflaming and swelling sinus tissues,

Treatments for Headaches

Our chiropractor recommends spinal adjustments and/or spinal decompression therapy for rapid, natural relief from headache pain caused by spinal and upper cervical misalignment. In addition to chronic headaches, spinal decompression therapy is also effective for alleviating the pain and stiffness of herniated discs, lower back pain, and sciatica.

Adjustments restore vertebrae to their proper positions while eliminating pressure on spinal nerves responsible for neck tension and chronic headaches. Spinal manipulations also relax neck muscles and enhance muscle and joint health by increasing blood flow to the neck area.

Pain medications only relieve chronic headache pain temporarily. Get effective, natural headache pain treatment by calling Sharratt Chiropractic today at (630) 406-8088 to schedule an appointment with your chiropractor in Batavia.
