How chiropractic care can help with migraines or tension headaches
Headaches can occur differently in different people; some may experience them a few times a month, once a week, a few times a week, and in severe cases daily. These aches are a sign that the body is functioning abnormally and it’s actually quite common in our population. According to several National Headache Societies, it impacts approximately 40% of the population.
So what is the difference between migraines and tension headaches?
Migrainescan manifest with tension in the tops of their heads, and a piercing or searing pain in their eye some may have visual disturbances. People experiencing migraines can have sensitivity to light and noise, only to receive mild relief by retreating to a completely dark, quiet room.
Tension headaches,on the other hand, may not be unilateral with pain coming from one side of the head, tension in the back of the head and eye is very common.
So now that you know the difference between the two, how can chiropractic care help?
In traditional medicine when there is a symptom lot of times they prescribe varying degrees of medications all the way up to antidepressants and seizure medications.
Philosophically, what we know is that when, when somebody has a particular symptom, it’s not because their blood levels of Gabapentin are really low the headache is a symptom that something is wrong. What we do as chiropractors is to start by delivering a very gentle non-invasive non-addictive treatment called a chiropractic adjustment.
Chiropractic care can bring your body back in balance, so that the body can get back to regulating, healing, and organizing the way it’s innately supposed to. Routine chiropractic care, not only helps minimize symptoms and pains dramatically but ultimately can resolve the problem for good.
This treatment is designed to bring the body back in balance by making sure the central nervous system is functioning properly

Ok so I got to my appointment early to complete the new patient paperwork and was immediately met with one of the nicest smiles I haven’t seen in 2 years since the pandemic, Dr. Cox! He was helpful and even made fun of himself about the working of the tablet. The office is immaculate though from the outside of the building I was a bit worried ?I initially went in for the Slim program and was introduced to Rena! What a wonderful surprise, So knowledgeable brought tears to my eyes with all of the new information she provided. I feel safe in Life Aligned hands and will now be a part of their family!

Above what we expected. Both my husband and I have found Life Aligned Wellness more than we anticipated. We have both been to chiropractors in the past but this is so much more advanced with the technology and the techniques both Dr. Cox and Dr. Kabala have shown to help us. We have to drive 40 minutes one way to their office but it is well worth it. Thank you to both Dr. Cox and Dr. Kabala for their services.

I have had years of discomfort stemming from misalignment of my spine. Despite yoga, massage and heat therapy, I still could not relief the nerve irritation, tight muscles, and restricted range of motion. During my first adjustment, which was gentle and not uncomfortable, I felt instant improvement.
I am eager to continue on this healing journey with the talented and compassionate team at Life Aligned Wellness Center.
