Chiropractic for Headaches
Many people, especially adults, suffer from headaches. And while the occasional headache shouldn’t be a cause for concern, regular or chronic headaches can take a toll on your physical and mental health.
While individuals typically reach for an aspirin bottle, or something stronger, when they feel a headache coming on, more and more people are turning to chiropractic care as a method for treating their headaches. There are three types of headaches that chiropractic adjustments can target with care and precision.
Tension Headaches. Tension headaches are episodic in nature and can result from prolonged muscle tension in the neck, shoulders, or head.
Cervicogenic Headaches. Cervicogenic headaches typically stem from problems in the neck and result in pain that can be felt in multiple parts of the head, face, neck, and upper back.
Migraines. Unlike tension and cervicogenic headaches, migraines are a type of headache that’s usually accompanied by other symptoms like nausea, dizziness, and light sensitivity.
In addition to assessing, diagnosing, and managing headaches, chiropractors are also well equipped to address the source and symptoms of chronic headaches. But more importantly, chiropractic care is an effective treatment option that is both gentle and non-invasive.
