Headache & Migraine Treatment
Our medical staff knows that your body, skeleton and muscles can go “out of alignment.” By bringing your spine back into proper positioning, our staff helps your body begin to heal from the onslaught of head pain.
This manipulation happens through stretching, manipulation and movements that allow your spine to return to its optimal position. In one study conducted using a control group, researchers found that chiropractic manipulation did give detectable relief to migraine patients.

These include soreness where your body was manipulated, headaches and tiredness.
