Can Chiropractic Care Help Treat Headaches? Learn About Our Natural Headache Treatment from Dr. Chapman
Most people get occasional headaches, but when they occur often enough to interfere with your function or daily activities, they can be a real problem.
If you’re reading this, you (or someone you care about) probably have been experiencing ongoing issues with headaches.
What Types of Headaches are the Most Common?
Statistics show that many people suffer from headache disorders, that is, headaches that occur more than once or twice a month.
In fact, three-quarters of all adults have experienced tension headaches, one of the most often reported headache types.
The most common types of headaches are:
- Tension headaches: Relating to spasms of the muscles of the neck, shoulders, and back
- Migraines: Debilitating and severe headaches
- Cluster headaches: Extremely painful headaches that occur in cycles of hours or days
- Drug-induced headaches: Headaches from coming off of, or taking too many, medicines
- Post-traumatic headaches: Headaches from injury or neck trauma, such as whiplash
- Cervicogenic headaches: Headaches due to problems with neck structures
Although there are many ways allopathic medicine treats headaches, most rely, at least in part, on pain medication for effectiveness.
Fortunately, chiropractic medicine provides safe, effective, and natural headache treatment.
Chiropractic — The Natural Headache Treatment
Taking pain medications or other drugs for headaches can exacerbate symptoms, cause negative side-effects, and, in the case of powerful prescription medications, exposure you to the potential of addiction.
Chiropractic care, on the other hand provides a natural headache treatment that works by targeting the root of your symptoms — normally, misaligned vertebrae, muscles, or tendons.
Your chiropractor can conduct an assessment that will take into consideration your posture, your habits, your nutrition, and your physical health to craft a care plan that will address any and all issues contributing to your headaches.
Chiropractic care has been proven effective in the treatment of headaches, and the gentle spinal manipulation that is the hallmark of chiropractic care is safe and painless.
