Are you one of the nine of out ten Americans who suffer from headaches? If so, you’ve likely tried just about every remedy in the book. An effective treatment option you may not have considered is chiropractic care.
Safe and all-natural, chiropractic care is a healthy alternative to medications that can harm the body. Whether your pain is in your forehead, behind the eyes or all over, chiropractic care is often the solution for frequent headaches.
The type of headache you experience often depends on what kind it is. For instance, some experience trigger headaches or headaches that are caused by something else, such as food, environmental stimuli and behaviors.
A majority of headaches, however, are considered primary headaches. Migraines, cluster and chronic tension headaches fall into this category, and are often the result of stiff neck muscles. Sedentary jobs and lifestyles are often to blame for the muscle issues, as staying in one position for an extended period of time can cause the body to experience pain. Sitting in front of a computer all day long can cause joint and muscle irritation in the upper back, neck and scalp, causing a headache. Stress and bad posture can also cause headaches, particularly those of the tension variety.
How Chiropractic Can Help Headaches
Physical issues, like nerve problems and spinal misalignment, can cause headaches to flare up. Often, the pain is due to muscle tension and tissue irritation of the nerves and blood vessels in the neck. Neck vertebrae can become misaligned due to physical or emotional stress. This misalignment can cause constriction in some of the vessels that supply blood to the brain, which can create headaches.
A chiropractor will examine your spine and determine if misalignment causes your headaches. If so, they can perform spinal manipulation to correct the problems. They can also offer you advice on changes you can make that may alleviate and prevent some of the pain.
For instance, poor posture can cause problems in your neck, shoulders and back. Your chiropractor may be able to offer exercises that can help you to strengthen the muscles that affect your posture.
They may also offer suggestions to help in the prevention of headaches. For instance, getting up and stretching every 30 minutes or so if you spend a lot of time sitting down can help keep your muscles loose and hopefully prevent a headache. Additionally, the chiropractor may provide nutritional advice that could improve your headaches.
