Headaches & Migraines

Chiropractic Care for People with Chronic Headaches and Migraines

Getting to the Root Cause of Headaches

Headaches are a billion dollar industry as evidenced by Madison Avenue’s blitz of pain relievers for everyday sufferers. It’s important to recognize that over-the-counter medication for headaches only mask what the body is saying, not treating the root cause.

Because the duration and causes of the pain varies, we advise those suffering from headaches to speak with us about chiropractic solutions that can lead to pain free living. In particular, cervicogenic solutions from our chiropractic center in Boulder, Colorado continue to bring real answers to the many who experience headaches.

Effective Care for Cervicogenic Headaches

What is cervicogenic? Simply put, a cervicogenic headache is a headache that stems from the cervical spine (neck) area instead of an internal cause. Some common problems related to neck issues include muscle spasms, inflammation and spinal misalignment.

Subluxations Can Sometimes Be the Cause

Chiropractors are well versed in treating spinal and joint misalignments known as subluxations, which is a spinal (or joint) misalignment. When the spine is out of place it can put abnormal pressure on the spinal nerves, muscles, and surrounding tissues. This in turn leads to dysfunction and can manifest as pain.

Pain is the body’s way of telling us something is wrong and to take action to correct it. If a cervical subluxation is found it is treated with what is called an adjustment to realign the spine, which takes away the abnormal pressure and restores function. At this point the body takes over and does what it is designed to do, heal.

If one’s headache is due to subluxation then the patient’s headache symptoms will hopefully decrease and eventually disappear.

Chiropractic is a great first choice conservative treatment option.

Some of Our Headache & Migraine Relief Success Stories

When I first started care with Dr. Schnelle I was dealing with chronic shoulder and back pain as well as chronic painful headaches. I had been suffering for maybe four or more years. Previous treatment included physical therapy for a while, but it did not seem to help much.

What I liked most about my care is that it helped lessen the pain. It takes time, but I have seen improvement in my pain levels. My chronic headaches are now gone thanks to the care I have received.*


I suffered from low back pain for the past 4 years, migraine headaches for the past 5-6 years and digestion problems for the past few years. Treatments that I have received in the past for these issues included regular symptom-based chiropractic care and different prescriptions from my M.D. for migraines and digestion (Nexium and Prilosec). Not only have I gotten symptom relief but I’m correcting my spinal issues.

I’ve had great results so far! I would recommend Dr. Schnelle to anyone that cares about the health of their spine. He takes his job seriously and provides wonderful chiropractic care.*


I first saw Dr. Schnelle after being referred by another chiropractor for migraines and tension headaches and have been dealing with those two conditions since childhood. I had received many kinds of treatment over the previous years. Traditional doctors prescribed pain pills but it helped only temporarily. Acupuncture treatment provided no noticeable effect and massage therapy only provided temporary relief. My results have been good so far and hopefully will continue to improve even more. I am currently on maintenance care to help maintain the results I have received and to minimize the frequency and intensity of my symptoms. I am always treated excellently by the staff at Choice Chiropractic and Wellness Center and I would definitely recommend Dr. Schnelle to others for care.*


I first saw Dr. Schnelle because I was experiencing neck pain and headaches. I had suffered with my symptoms for 1 to 2 years. I took Excedrin Migraine for the headaches which provided temporary relief.

The staff at Choice Chiropractic & Wellness Center treats me well and I like that I am well informed about my care. I have achieved very positive health results while under care. Chiropractic has helped lower the frequency of my headaches, migraines, and I have better body movement. I am no longer missing work from migraines!*
