Migraine headaches are a common neurological condition that affects millions of people worldwide. According to the Migraine Research Foundation, migraines are the third most prevalent illness in the world. Allopathic medicine provides various medications to manage migraines, such as analgesics, triptans, and antiemetics. While these medications can be effective, they don’t always address the root cause of the problem. This is where a CBP chiropractor differs from an allopathic physician.
CBP, or Chiropractic BioPhysics, is a highly specialized branch of chiropractic care that focuses on restoring the normal alignment and function of the spine. Unlike traditional chiropractic, CBP chiropractors use a unique, scientific approach to diagnose and treat the underlying cause of a patient’s condition, rather than just treating the symptoms.
Did you know your posture is related to migraine headaches?
When it comes to migraine headaches, CBP chiropractors approach the condition differently than allopathic physicians. While medication can be helpful in reducing the symptoms of migraines, it doesn’t address the underlying issue. CBP chiropractors aim to identify the root cause of migraines and address it using a holistic approach.
One of the primary causes of migraines is poor posture. Poor posture can cause tension and stress in the neck and shoulder muscles, which can lead to migraines. CBP chiropractors use advanced diagnostic tools to assess posture and identify any misalignments in the spine.
Exercise, Adjustments and Traction is the CBP trifecta
Once misalignments are identified, CBP chiropractors use a combination of spinal adjustments, exercises, and traction to correct the underlying issue. This approach is much different from allopathic medicine, which primarily relies on medications to manage symptoms.
CBP doctors will tackle the lifestyle factors as well
In addition to correcting misalignments, CBP chiropractors also provide patients with advice on lifestyle changes that can help reduce the frequency and intensity of migraines. This includes dietary changes, stress management, and exercise.
Overall, a CBP chiropractor approaches migraines differently than an allopathic physician. While medication can be helpful in reducing the symptoms of migraines, it doesn’t address the underlying issue. CBP chiropractors use a holistic approach to identify and correct the root cause of migraines, resulting in long-term relief and improved overall health. If you suffer from migraines, consider having a conversation with Dr. Jenkins, our clinic director and one only a handful of certified CBP chiropractors in Canada.
