How Chiropractic Can Help Your Headaches

HeadacheHow long have you been living with chronic headaches? How many different avenues have you taken in an attempt to eradicate them? Believe it or not, chiropractic has a number of answers for certain types of headaches, particularly those that can be traced to muscle tension created by cranial bone or misalignments in the neck. Headaches are caused by any number of factors, but if you have misalignments of the cranial bones or vertebrae in the neck, it’s very likely that a chiropractor can help you find some relief.

Many headaches can be related to auto injuries, sinus difficulties, or any neck-related symptom. The nerves of the neck, when irritated, can lead to pain that travels from the neck to the top of the skull and around the ears. Sometimes the pain can radiate into the face or eyes. These headaches can make it difficult to think clearly or function normally. Whatever type of pain you have, a thorough chiropractic evaluation will help to guide you in the right direction.

What can chiropractic do to help your headaches?
• Perform chiropractic adjustments to improve spinal alignment, which will take pressure off your nervous system and improve joint mobility. Keeping your spine in alignment will help to balance the muscles and reduce muscle tension.
• Provide nutritional advice, by recommending change in diet and perhaps the addition of B-complex vitamins, along with other supplements.
• Offer advice on posture, ergonomics, exercises, and relaxation techniques. This advice should help you find ways to relieve the recurring joint irritation and tension in the muscles of the neck and upper back.

It’s important to get your spine checked now if you are having any pain or headaches, as it can often get worse and take longer to fix the problem.
