Treating Headaches With Chiropractic
Headaches affect almost everyone at some point in their lives, and they can be experienced in many different ways. Although there are many causes of headaches, many originate from mechanical problems in the neck. Some people experience pain in one part of their head, behind their eyes, pounding inside their whole heard, and some experience nausea. The pain could be anything from dull or sharp, and it may last anywhere from a few minutes to a few days. There are a few different types of headaches a person can experience:
- Cluster Headaches
- Tension Headaches
- Headaches from Whiplash
Headaches are usually a result of tightness in the muscles in the neck and upper back, stress, work, lack of sleep, or some trauma to the neck or upper back. Headaches not only cause pain, but they can keep you from your everyday life. If you are suffering from headaches you should consider Chiropractic care to help alleviate your pain.
How Chiropractic Can Help With Your Headaches
Most people do not realize that a mechanical dysfunction of the vertebrae of the neck will cause increased tension in the muscle and irritate the delicate nerves that control the flow of blood to the head. Chiropractic care can help relieve tension in the neck that is caused by misalignments or dysfunction of the joints in the neck. Chiropractic adjustments re-establish mobility to the affected areas by creating a spinal alignment.
Many people resort to taking different types of pain medication on a daily basis in order to relieve pain that is being caused by frequent headaches. Chiropractic care is more effective and safer than taking medications for headaches.
Arrowhead Clinic's Chiropractic Doctors are primarily concerned with helping correct the source of your headaches instead of masking the pain with pain medication. A Chiropractic examination can determine whether the headache is being caused by any misaligned vertebrae in the spine which may be creating nerve interference.
Chiropractic care may be able to help you with any unnecessary tension or irritation in your neck or head. Anyone who is suffering from headaches are unique and have an individual case. At Arrowhead Clinic we take pride in presenting you with a treatment plan that is going to best fit your needs.
