Migraines & Headaches

Migraines & Headaches Treatment in Stamford, CT

Did you know that 9 out of 10 Americans suffer from headaches, and some estimates suggest that 25% of the population has a headache at this very moment? Because headaches are so common, some people think that getting a headache is just a normal part of life. Headaches are not “normal”, but rather are a sign that something’s wrong. Stress, environmental toxins, certain foods, preservatives, and alcohol are common culprits.

A frequent and overlooked cause of headaches is subluxation (misalignment) of spinal bones, especially in the upper neck. When bones of the spine lose their normal position or motion, sensitive nerves and blood vessels to the head can be affected. When spinal nerves and related tissues are stretched or irritated it can produce tension headaches, migraine headaches, and even cluster headaches. Aspirin and other medications may cover up these warning signs, but they do not correct the underlying structural cause… and so the headaches return.

Thousands of people have experienced correction and relief of headache pain through chiropractic care – and Dr. Berglund is one of them! Having suffered with frequent headaches for years when younger, Dr. Berglund’s headaches fully resolved and never returned after just a few visits to a Chiropractor. It was a life changing event. If a thorough examination reveals reduced spinal range of motion, loss of normal spinal curves, or vertebral misalignment (subluxation), chiropractic care may be able to help you too.

Specific chiropractic adjustments focus on the correction of spinal joint dysfunction, taking pressure off the delicate nerves, and allowing your body to heal naturally. Many of Dr. Berglund’s patients have experienced immediate headache relief through gentle chiropractic care. You don’t need to continue suffering with migraine and tension headaches… chiropractic adjustments are gentle, safe, and effective… relief is possible!
