Headaches

Chiropractic care has proven effective for headaches, including muscle tension headaches, migraines and headaches originating from neck disorders, known as cervicogenic headaches.

If you have a headache, you are not alone. Nine out of ten Americans suffer from headaches. Some are occasional, some frequent, some are dull and throbbing, and some cause debilitating pain and nausea.

Research shows that spinal manipulation which is the primary form of care provided by doctors of chiropractic may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck.

Research indicates that spinal manipulation results in almost immediate improvement for headaches that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension-type headache than a commonly prescribed medication.

Spinal manipulation therapy is also an effective treatment for tension headaches. Patients who ceased chiropractic treatment after four weeks experienced a sustained therapeutic benefit in contrast with those patients who received a commonly prescribed medication.

Chiropractic care has much relief to offer headache sufferers. A chiropractor can perform spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustments to improve spinal function and alleviate the stress on your system. They can provide nutritional advice, recommending a change in diet and perhaps the addition of B complex vitamins. A chiropractor can offer professional advice on posture, ergonomics, exercises and relaxation techniques. This advice should help to relieve the recurring joint irritation and tension in the muscles of the neck and upper back.
