Where do Migraine Headaches Come from?

Migraine headaches are a complex neurological condition stemming from irritation of nerves controlling sensation and blood flow in your face and head. Genetics and gender also play a role—75 percent of migraine sufferers are women! The following 3 factors can also trigger migraines:

  • Head or neck injury—Whiplash from a sports, home or car accident injury can increase headaches and migraines. When neck vertebrae are jostled out of alignment and soft tissue strains cause inflammation, nerve irritation results.
  • Posture problems—Excessive “forward head posture” from looking down at your mobile device, slouching at work or sleeping on the wrong pillow can also pinch nerves.
  • Other migraine triggers—Keep a migraine journal and record foods, activities, times of day, season, situations, stress levels sleeping habits, hydration habits, etc. These can all trigger migraine headaches.

Chiropractic Care: From Migraines to Wellness

Painkillers cannot resolve migraine headaches on a long-term basis—they only cover up the pain so you can function until the next attack. Because migraines usually have biomechanical, neurological and lifestyle components, chiropractic care is the ideal way to resolve them naturally. St. Louis chiropractor Dr. Sas will thoroughly examine each aspect of your life and spinal alignment to determine underlying causes of your migraine headaches. He then creates an individualized treatment plan including chiropractic adjustments and lifestyle changes that can reduce the severity and frequency of your migraine attacks because it removes the triggers that cause them.

Chronic Headaches Can Be a Thing of The Past.

Gateway Chiropractic Looks Forward to Treating Your Headaches and Migraines.

Headaches & Migraines Q & A

How can chiropractic care treat my headaches and migraines?

Headaches have many causes and many of those are treatable through chiropractic care. For example, tension headache treatment may involve muscle relaxation techniques, such as massage or adjustments. Tension headaches may be caused by misaligned vertebrae in the upper lumbar or cervical region. One of the first steps in treating recurrent headaches is to isolate the cause or causes of these headaches.

Can Dr. Sas help with tension headaches?

Dr. Sas approaches the treatment of headaches and migraines holistically. What that means is that he treats your immediate needs, such as realigning your vertebrae or treating muscle tension and then he looks at your life and your lifestyle to find the cause or causes of those conditions that cause headaches. By helping you to make sustainable lifestyle changes, Dr. Sas can help you prevent recurring headaches. For example, Dr. Sas may discuss stress and stress management techniques. Stress and tension headaches often are related. By reducing your stress level, the frequency of tension headaches may reduce. The goals for patients who suffer from recurring headaches are relief and prevention. We want you to live a life that is full of quality and that is pain-free without having to use medication.

What kind of adjustments do you provide for sinus headaches?

Gateway Chiropractic offers sinus adjustments for the relief of sinusitis and sinus headaches. There are eight hollow cavities within the human skull that make up the sinuses. Sinus adjustment involves applying pressure that helps trapped fluid in the sinuses dissipate. Sinus adjustment begins with a physical examination, which may include X-rays and other diagnostic tools that help the doctor understand which sinus areas are affected and which need treatment. The process is usually pain-free, but patients may hear or feel a popping sound. The result helps your sinuses function and fluid to drain. When this occurs, sinus headaches disappear.

Words From Happy Gateway Chiropractic Patients

I have seen many chiropractors since college in effort to fix a few different issues, and Dr Sas is the ONLY one who sat down and created a full treatment plan AND TOLD ME ABOUT IT. Personally, I like to know what’s going on when a Dr is treating me, and he has always been very transparent in my care plan. After 6 years I can finally cross my legs sitting down again, and it keeps getting better.

I had A LOT of irrational anxiety about getting chiropractic work done. But Dr. Sas was very down-to-earth and didn’t feed me any b.s. He understood my anxiety, but made sure that I understood he was in this with me and for me. After 4 months, he is now one of my most favorite humans and I look forward to our visits. Oh, and I guess it’s probably important to note that his treatments are actually helping me. So, there’s that.

Dr Sas is amazing!! I went from having back pain daily to being symptom free after about a month in his care. I have seen other chiropractors before and I can’t say enough about how great Dr Sas is compared to the competition. His office staff is incredibly nice and knows everyone by name. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone and everyone to go see Dr Sas at Gateway Chiropractic!
