– Hi, Dr. Heather here, from Wellspring Chiropractic
Lifestyle Center. Today we’re talking about headaches. And when people are
struggling with headaches and they come in to see us, I want to share with you
what are the things we do to discover whether or not we can help. So, in our exam, very
thorough exam that we do, we use technology that the astronauts use to discover what their
levels of health are. If you remember, in any
of the previous videos you may have seen, we are looking at the neck as one of the primary causes of headaches. And so, if you have a beautiful
forward curve in the neck, then that’s where there’s gonna be the most ease in the nerves. However, if we lose that curve, and there’s a straightening or a reversal, or there’s any kind of
twist in the vertebrae, that can start to put
pressure on the nerves that are coming out from
between these bones. So the brain is sending the messages down the spinal cord,
out through the nerves. And if there’s anything
interfering with that nerve supply, those nerves actually
travel up and over the head. And so that’s where many
people experience headaches. So we have to discover whether or not there’s any damage, or any
irritation, or interference, in these nerves. We use our scanning technology
to be able to look at that. We can literally look at the nerve supply going to the muscles all around this area, as well as the nerve supply to the organs, blood vessels, and glands. And so, often times it’s an
impact on blood vessel function that can also be a trigger for headaches. So we do our scans by
running the scanning unit right up the spine. And as we do that, it
measures the activity in the nervous system. And then by analyzing the results of that, we can understand whether
or not your headaches may be being caused by the
neck, problems in the neck, misalignments of the
vertebrae in the spine. That’s one of the things we do to discover whether or not we can help, and then we measure
the progress over time, to make sure that it is
getting better and better. And then we know that you’re gonna see the results that you’re looking for. I hope that you found this useful. If you did, and you’re
curious about whether or not you have any kind of
interference, subluxations, nerve interference,
misalignments in your spine that may be causing your headaches, then please take advantage
of our new patient special that we have. If you just click on the link below, you can find out more about it. Hope to see you then. (upbeat music)
