Headache & Migraine Treatment in Cobourg

man touching temples in painHeadaches and migraines aren’t normal. They often cause major life disruptions as people struggle to focus and miss out on important activities.

At Herron Family Chiropractic, we don’t think anyone should put up with headaches or migraines. We restore your head, neck, and spine to proper positioning so you’re getting maximum blood flow to the brain. Our patients feel the difference as the muscles, joints, and nerves begin working the way they should again.

Restoring Blood Flow to the Brain

When the spine isn’t where it should be, the brain isn’t getting enough oxygen, blood, and nerve flow. The disconnect is confusing for the body, which responds by generating spasms of pain as a cry for help.

Whether you feel pain at the back of the head, at the base of the neck, between your eyes, on either side, or as a vise grip wrapping around the head, you’re experiencing the effects of a structural issue that needs to be resolved with adjustments.

What Causes Pain

For some people, triggers such as dehydration, stress, red wine, chocolate, or long periods of driving can aggravate symptoms. For others, flare-ups happen out of the blue, making it hard to schedule events because they never know when they’ll suddenly be incapacitated.

We’ve seen an increase in patients reporting pain and dysfunction as more people work from home. Staring at screens for a long time is detrimental, and home office setups tend to have bad ergonomics. Hunching over puts strain on the muscles in the back of the neck, leading to a loss of structure in the neck.

If you’re regularly working on a screen, don’t wait until the effects of poor neck posture set in to come see us. We also offer proactive care because we would rather prevent pain than relieve it.

Escaping the Cycle of Migraines

The throbbing or pulsating pain of migraines can be on one sided or everywhere. Many people end up flat on their bed for hours or even days because they can’t handle light or sound. Secondary issues like nausea, vomiting, aura, and visual disturbances may also occur.

These experiences are brutal to daily functioning. We’re sad when patients tell us they regularly take off work or miss out on time with family because they thought there was nothing anyone could do.

Breaking Free From Lifelong Pain

One client came to us as a last resort after living with migraines since she was a kid. She was amazed by the difference that chiropractic made. Even if you’ve been in pain for decades, chiropractic care can still realign your spine and reset your body to get you feeling better.

Caring for the Whole Person

Pain in the head and neck usually indicates structural issues. Extreme forward head posture puts pressure on the spine, joints, nerves, and muscles.

Dr. Peter and Dr. Amy bring the head into neutral positioning and teach you exercises and stretches to improve posture, preventing tight muscles from triggering pain.

Our team examines the whole picture to address anything else that could contribute to pain, like sleep position, water intake, or an inactive lifestyle. Everything in the body is connected. Instead of dealing with isolated symptoms, we solve the root issue by looking at the whole system until you’re feeling incredible.
