Half of the world’s adult population struggles with headaches at least once a year. These headaches can cause pain and disability, affecting your quality of life. So why live with daily headaches when you can ease them away?
Why it Matters:
A quick visit to a chiropractor can provide you with the care you need to find relief from daily headaches. Chiropractors can help relieve headaches in many ways; here are a few:
- Exploring Your History
We will perform a comprehensive history and examination during your initial assessment. This assessment allows us to determine if your symptoms are from spinal issues. We’ll also rule out other possible causes of your daily headaches. Exploring your lifestyle and history will also help us determine potential triggers. For example, diet, alcohol, or stress might contribute to frequent headaches. Your history and examination can identify your headache triggers and provide information to help you make the lifestyle
changes you need to find relief.
- Chiropractic Adjustments
New studies have shown that chiropractic care can help improve headache pain. Chiropractors are highly trained in performing gentle and effective spinal adjustments. This training allows us to use our hands to apply a small force to a specific spinal joint. When the force is applied, you might hear a slight pop, and some people feel immediate relief!
Deep neck flexion exercises are also great for treating cervicogenic headaches. You can also ask us about active care techniques and exercises. Using these techniques at home can help you ease your headaches between your appointments.
It’s time to bring an end to that throbbing in your head. You don’t need to continue to live in pain. Movement is a critical part of the healing process, which is why spinal adjustments are so effective. You can ease your daily headaches starting today and live a pain-free life with chiropractic care.
