Headaches and Chiropractic Care

Headaches happen to all of us, but some are more severe than others and might require more than a dose of Advil to ease the pain. Did you know that there is another option to combat dull, throbbing, and debilitating pain that doesn’t require popping open a pill bottle or lying down in a dark room? I’m referring to chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care is an ideal treatment for anyone suffering from reoccurring headaches. One of the most common chiropractic treatments, spinal manipulation, is a proven and effective option for treating headaches and migraines.

What Triggers Headaches?

Headaches are caused by a number of different things. Certain foods, stress, environmental factors, excessive exercise, fluctuations in blood sugar, lack of sleep, and caffeine withdrawal are just a few common headache triggers. While about 5% of headaches can be linked to other physical problems or diseases in the body, most can be classified as tension, cluster, or migraine headaches caused by tension in the neck, scalp and upper back. Unfortunately, more people than ever before are beginning to report instances of muscle tension in their shoulders, neck, and scalp, largely because more people are engaging in sedentary activities. For example, many people work in office settings where they’re spending upwards of eight hours sitting in a chair in front of a computer. Doing that day in and day out can lead to tension buildup resulting in headaches.

 

How Can Chiropractic Care Help?

While taking occasional breaks from sitting in front of a computer or other sedentary tasks like reading and sewing can certainly help alleviate any tension and muscle aches, nothing beats a trip to the chiropractor. Chiropractors have the training and knowledge needed to help address the individual needs of their patients. Experienced chiropractors know how tension can affect the body and offer a variety of options to help alleviate your headache pain, including:

  • Chiropractic adjustments and spinal manipulations to alleviate stress
  • Dietary and nutritional recommendations to help alleviate reoccurring headaches
  • Advice on relaxation techniques, exercises, ergonomics, and posture to help alleviate joint pain and muscle tension

Give Fletcher Chiropractic a call to see how we can help you address and overcome the root cause of your headaches. We’ll help you to enjoy life without the pain that comes with headaches.
