Chiropractic care is a profession dedicated to the non-surgical treatment of disorders of the nervous system or musculoskeletal system.  If you are having headaches and migraines, they may be a result of a misaligned spine.  Patients in Atlanta have an important resource in Dr. Latrice Lawrence of Atlanta, Georgia.  A chiropractic adjustment may be the answer to relieving your pain. Multiple studies have found a correlation between chiropractic adjustments and the reduction of migraine and headache symptoms.

Dealing with a headache can be tough but when the pain becomes persistent for a day or more, coming and going, the pain can be unbearable.  Worse symptoms are usually associated with migraines, including sensitivity light and noise, nausea, vomiting, depression, and irritation.  Many headaches and migraines are related to spine misalignment.  When the spine is out of position due to trauma, repetitive stress, an accident or injury, it can put excessive pressure on the surrounding nerves causing pain.  When nerves are compressed or irritated they react by sending warning messages to the muscles of the back, neck and jaw.
