Are you seeking natural relief for headaches? Nearly everybody will suffer a tension headache at some point, and millions of people struggle with debilitating migraines that literally put their lives on hold from the extreme pain and nausea. People who struggle with chronic headache problems are frustrated with painkillers, and rightfully so: they only cover up the pain temporarily without actually dealing with the underlying problem causing the headaches. Here at Back To Health Family Chiropractic in Fort Worth, we have helped hundreds of headache sufferers find natural headache relief that lasts. The Atlas Orthogonal specific upper cervical adjustment is a specialized chiropractic procedure. We have seen great results in reducing the severity and frequency of headaches and migraines—and it often stops them from coming back altogether.
Our Fort Worth natural relief for headaches is giving people their lives back. The reason is that we do not simply use painkillers to mask the symptoms of the headache. We use natural, non-invasive and drug-free chiropractic headache treatment. This treatment, which starts by addressing misalignments in the very top vertebra at the base of the skull (the Atlas), actually solves the underlying causes of the headaches and migraines. Our treatment is also unique in the area—so unique and effective that we have patients who travel from hundreds of miles away to get this natural relief for headaches.
Headaches can come from any number of sources: excessive stress, an injury such as whiplash, long-term poor posture issues, and even poor nutrition. Dr. Michlin spends time getting to know each patient so he can understand the underlying reasons for the pain. Once he understands where you are coming from, he will tailor an individual headache relief plan for you. This usually involves addressing the pain from several angles.
The first and most critical angle is your spinal alignment as this has an enormous impact on headaches and migraines and your overall health in general. Dr. Michlin will examine your spine to find out where any vertebrae are out of alignment and pinching nerves. He pays particular attention to the Atlas vertebra at the base of your skull. If your skull is not sitting directly and evenly on top of this vertebra, critical nerves are being pinched that very often lead to severe headaches and migraines. The realignment process, Atlas Orthogonal (AO) Adjusting Technique, is incredibly gentle and painless, and yet highly effective and has been featured in news media across the country for its revolutionary effectiveness in headache and migraine relief and prevention.
Dr. Michlin and Certified Health Coach Nancy Michlin will also recommend lifestyle and nutritional changes that can help with prevention and natural relief from headaches. We know that certain foods (aged cheeses, alcohol, caffeine, additives and preservatives in processed foods especially) can trigger migraines, so we work to develop nutritional interventions that can make you feel better from head to toe.
