To find out if your headaches can be helped by chiropractic, you’ll need to come in for a detailed history and a careful examination. Many headaches start with a spinal misalignment in the neck, or cervical spine, which can produce pain and headaches. Your nerves carry important information about pain and musculoskeletal function. A spinal misalignment can lead to nerve interference and dysfunction. When this occurs, you may experience muscle stiffness, spasms, muscle tension, pain, and eventually chronic headaches. Read on to see how chiropractic can help you find lasting headache relief!
Get Rid of Your Pain!
If the primary cause of your headaches is altered nerve impulses, chiropractic can get rid of your headaches!
We can start the road to recovery by identifying your specific type of headache. While there are virtually hundreds of different types of headaches, yours probably fits into one of the categories listed below. In reality, they may even overlap. Take a moment to think about what brings on your headaches.
- One-sided pain associated with nausea
- Moderate to severe pain
- Throbbing sensation
- Extreme light, sound and touch sensitivity
- Visual “aura”
- Steady, dull pain that “caps” your scalp
- Mild to moderate pain
- Tension in your neck or head
- Mild light or sound sensitivity
- Pain near the forehead or around the eyes
- Excruciating pain
- Penetrating, non-throbbing pain
- A series of headaches
- Watery, swollen eyes
Headaches are a symptom of a problem somewhere in the body. Doctors of chiropractic do not “treat” headaches. Rather, chiropractic is a natural method of correcting underlying structural problems that can lead to headaches. Your cervical spine is comprised of a series of vertebral joints through which vital nerves pass. Chiropractic can relieve your pain by aligning any misaligned vertebra and correcting the nerve interference that may be causing your headache. Chiropractic adjustments reduce the nerve, muscle, and ligament irritation known to cause headaches. No general manipulation, no medication, no massage, and no exercise can substitute for a specific chiropractic adjustment!
