Can Chiropractors Treat Headaches?
Headaches are all too common amongst patients who come in to visit a Doctor of Chiropractic. In America alone, nearly nine out of 10 individuals suffer from headaches regularly. That doesn’t include those who suffer from chronic pain due to migraines and other pain associated with the head and neck. While over the counter pain medications help to treat the symptoms of pain, they are not considered an effective form of headache treatment.
Since pain medications only mask the symptoms of painful headaches and don’t actually treat the cause of the pain, more and more people are seeking out alternative headache treatment options, including chiropractic care.
How Chiropractors Can Help with Headache Treatment
There are many reasons why someone may be suffering from either the occasional or chronic headache. Some common reasons behind headaches include:
- Poor posture/Skeletal alignment
- Changes in sleep habits or a lack of sleep
- Dehydration/Lack of food
While the causes of your headache pain may be from daily stress, many medical conditions can be causing the pain. So, it’s crucial that you consult your Primary Care Provider to diagnose any underlying condition. However, for those looking for alternative headache treatment options, your local chiropractor can help you find the relief you’re looking for.
Chiropractic care typically uses a variety of methods to help you find the pain relief you need, and the treatment options can and will vary depending on the root cause of your pain. Between traditional chiropractic care, spinal decompression, and even massage therapy, your Doctor of Chiropractic will help design a headache treatment plan suited to your specific needs.
