How Chiropractic Care Can Help Your Headaches

When you think of chiropractic care, do you only associate the treatment with relieving back and neck pain? It might surprise you that chiropractic treatments also help all sorts of conditions, including sciatica, sports injury pain, and even babies with colic. 

Chiropractic care is also effective at treating headaches.

The physicians at Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center use chiropractic care to help patients with various conditions, including headaches. 

Dr. Steven Foley and Dr. Jacob Holdren are dedicated to not just addressing a set of symptoms but truly digging deep to find the root cause of your pain, healing you with innovative treatments, and offering recommendations on the many factors that influence your health, such as your emotional wellbeing, stress, and more. 

Chronic headache issues lower your quality of life

Few things stop you in your tracks and slam your productivity like headaches. And if you have many headache days a month and they’re chronic, your enjoyment of life understandably plummets. If you’re one of the 9 in 10 individuals who suffer from headaches, you’ve got our sympathy, but there’s hope. 

It’s important to identify your headache triggers if you can because, sometimes, changing your diet or having your vision checked can solve the problem. But if your life is consistently derailed due to headache pain and its unpredictability, chiropractic care may be just the thing for you. 

Most headaches are tension headaches and migraine attacks, and many of them can be traced to muscle tension in your neck, which is rampant today because we spend so much of our time sitting at desks or gazing at our phones. 

This inactivity, combined with unnatural positions, increases your risk for muscle tension and joint irritation in your neck, as well as your upper back and even your scalp. The result? A throbbing, debilitating headache. 

How can chiropractic care ease my headache pain?

Chiropractic treatments are noninvasive and help your nervous system perform better. 

To relieve your headaches, we may:

  1. Perform chiropractic adjustments or spinal manipulation to improve your spinal function and lessen the strain on your system.
  2. Show you how to improve your posture by adjusting your office’s ergonomic setup (computer, chair height and type, etc.), reducing muscle tension and joint irritation in your upper back and neck.
  3. Give you information about how nutritional changes may help your headaches, like dietary adjustments and adding of B complex vitamins to your daily regimen.

A migraine is a more severe, neurologically based headache. Not only do you experience head pain, but you may have nausea and vomiting and light and sound sensitivity. Fortunately, clinical studies have shown that chiropractic care positively affected on sufferers of certain types of migraines.
