Headaches and Migraines
Headaches are not fun, and migraines are another level of awful. When the spine moves out of position because of developmental issues, trauma, repetitive stress, and other incidents, it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. When the nerves are compressed or irritated, they send a message to the muscles of the back, neck, and jaw to tighten. This tightness can lead directly to an acute headache or migraine. Over time the tightness can also pull your bones out of alignment leading to more persistent headaches and migraines. A headache or migraine can be a sign that there are deeper problems arising in your spinal column, and because every other system in your body is impacted by your spinal health, it is very important to deal with these issues when the signs begin to arise.
Chiropractic care has a long history of successfully treating headaches and migraines. Pure Chiropractic has an extensive understanding of subtle issues occurring in the spine which, due to its connection with the nervous system, is very often the source of pain. A chiropractic treatment starts with a thorough evaluation that will rule out other possible causes of your headache and examine your spine for issues of misalignment.
The assessment will determine the exact type of treatment that is necessary for the specific issue at the root of the pain. Using gentle and non-invasive techniques a chiropractor is able to achieve adjustments to the spine that, although they may seem subtle, can at times provide almost instant relief and restore your long-term health. Unlike medications which treat the problem on the surface level and provide only short-term relief, a chiropractic adjustment will address the cause of your headache or migraine and provide lasting results that will improve your quality of life.

I'm so grateful to have found a chiropractor who not only excels in the activator method, but is also concerned about the well being of his patients. Dr. Pokorney takes steps to educate his patients and helps them live without pain in their day to day life. I'm so relaxed by the time I leave the office that I feel like I've spent the day at the spa.
I have never been a fan of the traditional twisting, pulling, popping. I have never heard of the activator method until I started getting treatment here at Pure Chiropractic. But man I love it. It has truly helped my health get back to normal. Honestly the best I have ever felt in years. Been dealing with a lot of pain in different areas and feel like a new person now. I will forever go to a chiropractor that uses the activator method. Thank you Dr P for all that you have done so far and all that you do in the future!!
I strongly recommend Pure Chiropractic. I have had back, neck and knee pain and mobility issues from various injuries ans work. Since seeing Dr. Pokorney I have so much more mobility and he has even relieved/corrected tons of issues I didn’t even realize. I feel better than I have in years and have been able to work a lot harder than before and still go home in little to no pain.
