In some cases, people might end up suffering from chronic headaches. Fortunately, by visiting a chiropractor, you may be able to find lasting relief.
The Potential Advantages of Working with a Chiropractor
Prescription pain management medications can temporarily mask the pain caused by a migraine or tension headache. Unfortunately, this might not resolve the underlying issue. As a result, the migraine/headache might reoccur. Over time, medicines might become less effective as well.
By working with a chiropractor, you might not be simply masking the pain. You might also be addressing and potentially resolving the underlying issues.
Addressing Headaches and Migraines with Chiropractic Care
Let’s look at some techniques our chiropractor can use to relieve pain. Keep in mind that the below list is not all treatments we can provide.
This involves applying controlled force to specific parts of the spine or body to reduce stress on the nervous system by correcting the alignment. In turn, might help relieve tension in the neck and back, thus potentially reducing headaches and migraines and also potentially making them less severe.
Spinal adjusting is a commonly used tool in a chiropractor’s toolbox. The spine essentially acts as an electrical panel for your entire body. Turning off a switch turns off the nerve supply to the organs and tissues it controls, leading to malfunctions in those body parts. On the other hand, a strong and properly aligned spine ensures all the switches are on to optimize function and improve overall wellness in the body.
Postural Correction and Ergonomic Support
Poor posture can lead to a misaligned spine and might thus lead to muscle problems and increased tension and strain on the neck and upper back. In turn, these problems may contribute to headaches and migraines.
Our chiropractor can assess your posture and provide guidance on how to improve it. This could help to reduce the frequency and intensity of your headaches. Our chiropractor can help you select furniture that offers good ergonomics. It’s possible that your pillow, bed, or favorite chair is contributing to your headaches, and thus affecting your well-being.
