Getting to the Root of Your Pain

Chiropractic care focuses on identifying and addressing the major causes of headaches, typically linked to nerve irritation from various sources:

  • Upper Cervical Spine—misalignment in the upper cervical spine can lead to nerve irritation, triggering head pain
  • Muscle Tension—tight muscles in the neck, often caused by misalignment, may contribute to headaches
  • Jaw Dysfunction—temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ or TMD) can be a significant factor in headaches
  • Cranial Dysfunction—proper cranial function is vital for the overall well-being of the central nervous system and could impact headaches.


At Wahl Family Chiropractic, having the cranium and sacrum work together correctly is necessary to maintain a proper pumping mechanism. If not, the central nervous system is affected, including the brain. By addressing all these issues, we help alleviate and prevent the pain associated with headaches and migraines.

Getting Relief

One common question is, “How long until patients typically notice relief?” On average, substantial improvement is seen within two to eight weeks. The timeline may vary depending on the individual and the severity of their condition, but chiropractic provides relief across the board.

Patients play an active role in managing headaches and migraines. In addition to adjustments, addressing at-home care and lifestyle factors is crucial. These may include:

  • Ergonomics—evaluating daily workstations and adjusting ergonomics to reduce strain on the neck and spine
  • Diet—identifying and eliminating foods or triggers that may contribute to headaches or migraines
  • Lifestyle Choices—making informed choices about lifestyle factors and consuming substances that may worsen the condition

Our goal is not only to provide effective chiropractic care but also to empower patients with the knowledge and tools they need to manage their condition independently.
