Headaches are a common complaint in the U.S. According to the American Chiropractic Association, approximately 90 percent of American adult’s experience headaches on an occasional or chronic basis Most people suffer from occasional headaches, but when headaches or migraines become chronic, it can have a significant impact on your overall quality of life. As chiropractors, we believe that headaches are a symptom of a body out of balance physically or chemically.
When you visit our clinic, we will assess your overall health, including the position and posture of your spine and neck. We will use gentle manipulation to adjust the cervical structure of the spine and neck, reducing pressure on nerve pathways that are often responsible for triggering constant headache pain. We may also utilize other therapy’s, such as trigger point therapy and stretching to reduce muscle strain and improve circulation. Often, people with tension headaches experience relief almost immediately after chiropractic treatment.
If you suffer from migraines, lifestyle changes may be necessary to reduce their frequency and identify habitual or environmental components that may be causing them. For example, we have found that things like poor sleep, chronic stress, caffeine, food allergies and even certain smells can trigger the onset of a migraine. Eliminating migraine triggers, improving musculoskeletal health and embracing healthy habits like exercise and increased water intake can reduce migraine discomfort and make a significant difference in overall quality of life.
