Understanding migraine headaches and how you could help relieve or manage them with routine chiropractic care.

What is a Migraine Headache?

Frequent or not, head or neck pain caused by migraines and tension headaches are not something to live with and endure. According to the International Headache Society, headaches impact almost 40 percent of the American population. Migraines and tension headaches alike are caused by muscle contractions in the head or neck region. Anything from a bright screen, loud music or lack of food and water can all be triggers for one of these uncomfortable aches, but there is a natural and drug-free solution.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help Those with Migraines and Tension Headaches?

Chiropractic for headaches can be a great way to manage and relieve pain caused by migraines and tension headaches. Routine Chiropractic care provides patients suffering from migraines and tension headaches with a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to prescription medications or over-the-counter pain medications (OTCs), which are commonly prescribed to patients to help them manage their pain.

Chiropractors deliver a gentle, non-invasive, and non-addictive therapy, known as a Chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments reduce joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body in an effort to reduce inflammation and improve function of both the affected joint and nervous system. By increasing joint mobility and improving your nervous system function and spinal health, your body has the ability to better manage the pain caused by migraines and tension headaches. It will also improve your posture and help you live a healthier, more active lifestyle.

Below are some of the health benefits Chiropractic care and Chiropractic adjustments can provide patients with migraines and tension headaches:

  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Relief from stress and tension disorders
  • Improved physical function and performance

To see if Chiropractic care is right for your condition, the Chiropractors at 867 Chiropractic will perform a consultation, examination and if necessary, refer you out for diagnostic imaging such as x-ray or MRI. Based on the findings of our Chiropractic exam and consultation, your Doctor of Chiropractic may elect to co-treat your migraines and tension headaches with other healthcare professionals including massage therapists, physical therapists, or other primary care physicians. Our Chiropractor will create a migraine treatment plan tailored to your condition and needs. Contact us today to know more about our Chiropractic therapy.
