I’m am going to try and keep calm but this one really frustrates me. It saddens me that I hear so often that people are getting injections for their migraines. Another particularly common statement that preempts this is “I went to a chiropractor for “x” number of years and it never helped”. First off. IT was not the problem. Chiropractic is the implied “it” that somehow didn’t work but the reality is that the chiropractor did not find and fix the problem. It’s ok. That doesn’t mean that he is a terrible chiropractor. The odds are that if you went to get one or more injections to help with your headaches or migraines then you would have been better off finding another chiropractor.
Let me break it down for you. There is NO reality in which you have tension headaches or migraines “caused” by muscle tension or spasm that chiropractic should not be able to help at least a little but very often chiropractic is able to completely resolve. NONE. Don’t argue with me because you are wrong. More often than not this imbalance of spine and muscle tension is a result of your spine being SHIFTED away from its ideal position, thus causing tension and pain and irritation to the nerves that innervate or supply nerve information to your neck and head. This is ONLY a chiropractic problem that can ONLY be fixed and corrected by a chiropractor, sometimes only a good chiropractor.
I did not say that a medical doctor can’t help you. There are plenty of other treatment options available for these types of tension headaches and migraines besides chiropractic. Just realize that none of these will change the structure of your spine from abnormal towards normal. Most commonly medical doctors will prescribe:
Can anyone spot the one question that almost NEVER gets asked by either patient or doctor at this point? “What caused the muscle tension?” No doubt the injections can reduce some of the symptoms. And if they do it only confirms that the problem is and should only be a chiropractic problem treated by a chiropractor. Well, there is a reason for that tension and a structural chiropractic will be sure to find the problem. If you went to a chiropractor for 10 years and got no results, that does not mean that chiropractic doesn’t work. That only proves that you were going to the wrong chiropractor. How many mechanics do you have to visit before you find someone you trust? The same goes for medical doctors and certainly chiropractors.
