Understanding Subluxation and Ending Headaches for Good | Chiropractor for Headaches in Westlake, OH

Hello everyone, Dr. Greg here from Paramount Chiropractic. One of the primary concerns that bring people into our office is the debilitating experience of headaches and migraines, alongside neck and back pain. Our goal is not just to provide temporary relief but to fundamentally address and correct the root cause of these issues.

The Concept of Subluxation

When patients step into our office, one key concept we explore is subluxation, or vertebral subluxation. This condition involves one or more joints in the spine moving improperly or being out of their normal alignment, which in turn places pressure on the nervous system. Given the nervous system’s pivotal role as the master controller of all cells, tissues, and organs in the body, any disruption in its function can have widespread implications.

Symptoms as Signals

Pain, including the kind experienced during headaches and migraines, is the body’s way of signaling that something is amiss. It’s the alarm system alerting us to the presence of a subluxation that needs attention. However, it’s crucial to understand that subluxation doesn’t always manifest as immediate pain. Over time, if left unaddressed, it can lead to more significant issues.

Our Approach to Identifying Subluxations

Upon your visit, we conduct a series of tests—both subjective and objective—to pinpoint the presence of subluxations. This includes:

Motion Study Analysis via X-ray: To observe the dynamics of your spine in motion and identify any abnormalities.
Posture Analysis: Evaluating your posture to detect any signs of subluxation that could be contributing to your discomfort.
Palpation: A hands-on approach to assess areas of tension and misalignment in the spine.
Correcting Subluxations through Chiropractic Adjustments
The cornerstone of our treatment for subluxations is the chiropractic adjustment. This method allows us to restore proper motion to the spine, relieve pressure on the nervous system, and by extension, address the underlying causes of headaches, migraines, and other symptoms.
