Why It’s A Good Idea To Visit Your Chiropractor For Headaches
There are many causes of headaches, but chiropractic care is extremely effective at treating all forms of headaches. The first thing we will do is a very, very careful case history and examination. There are many things that can trigger headaches, and we want to understand what contributes to your headaches. We’ll also do a thorough musculosekeletal exam where we can identify areas that are restricted or not moving normally.
The most common form of headaches that people often present with is muscular tension headaches, where the muscles in the base of the spine right were the neck attaches to the cranium get very tight. And we’ll work on those areas.
There are a variety of ways to treat people with headaches. Depending on where the headache stems from we can:
- Perform spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustments to improve spinal function and alleviate the stress on your system.
- Provide nutritional advice, recommending a change in diet and perhaps the addition of B complex vitamins.
- Offer advice on posture, ergonomics (work postures), exercises and relaxation techniques. This advice should help to relieve the recurring joint irritation and tension in the muscles of the neck and upper back.
