Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches

Apr 4, 2024 | Chiropractic

Introduction

Headaches can impact your day in many ways, from robbing concentration, energy, enthusiasm, and your will to get out of bed. Unfortunately, life does not stop and rarely slows down when dealing with a headache. Irrespective of the type and cause of headache, we want it gone.

This has produced a huge market for medications that cover up the symptoms of headaches. Powerful drugs can numb your nervous system, so the pain doesn’t register. While these approaches may be convenient, they can cause adverse effects and kidney or liver damage. Worse, they don’t correct the underlying cause of the headache.

Chiropractic Treatments for Headaches

What is Chiropractic Therapy?

Chiropractic therapy provides customized treatment targeted to our patients’ specific needs using non-invasive approaches. Chiropractors discover areas of stress, misalignment, or restriction that may be causing discomfort by analyzing our patient’s spinal alignment and joint function. They seek to realign your body, reduce inflammation, and promote self-healing with gentle adjustments, spinal manipulations, and focused therapies.

 

Cause of Headaches & How a Chiropractor can Help

Chiropractic for Headaches 

One of the causes of headaches is a malalignment of the vertebrae (bones from the spine) in the neck. This can impact the movement of your neck. When the spine is misaligned, it causes a subluxation. Chiropractors use the term “subluxations” to describe misalignments or improper movement of the vertebrae, suggesting that these issues may lead to nerve pressure. Subluxations in the neck can affect nerves, muscles, and even the blood supply to your head.

Chiropractors locate areas of the spine that aren’t moving properly. They evaluate your spinal curves, your posture, muscle tension and your ability to move your neck. These and many other examinations can help determine if you are likely to benefit from chiropractic care. If it is determined that chiropractic could help you, a plan will be discussed on how to proceed and what your treatment may consist of. There are many different treatment options that may be presented to you. You and your Chiropractor are a team and together you can find the best options for you.

 

Understanding Chiropractic Care for Headaches: What to Expect During Your Visit

The goal of your chiropractic appointments is to help restore spinal function, and essential spinal curves, improve circulation, and reduce nerve irritation. Many patients report fewer and less severe headaches, under the care of a chiropractor. Our office has a high success rate with patients who get headaches.

The primary contributing factors to headaches comprise physical trauma, emotional stress, dehydration, nutritional deficiencies, or chemical toxins. Occasionally, there may be a combination of both these elements and factors. Our examination process is designed to pinpoint the most probable cause.

Finding Relief: How Many Chiropractic Visits for Headaches Will I Need??

Knowing how many sessions until you feel the results can vary greatly from one person to another.  Some patients notice pain relief quickly while others notice a gradual relief of symptoms over the course of several treatments. It’s impossible to predict. If you’ve had chronic headaches for many years, improvement may take time.  Even when you’re feeling better, consistent treatment can help retrain and strengthen the muscles that support your spine. Just as it takes more than one or two workouts at the gym to get in shape, it takes time for your spine to heal.
