Get Relief from Headaches with Chiropractic Care
We've all experienced a headache at some point in our lives, and know what a pain it can be! Headaches and migraines are painful conditions that usually occur when muscles or blood vessels swell, tighten, or undergo other changes that stimulate or add pressure to the surrounding nerves. They can manifest as anything from a dull ache to a stabbing pain and can sometimes be accompanied by other symptoms like nausea or changes in vision.
Types of Headaches
There are numerous types of headaches, but the most common ones are:
While over-the-counter painkillers are the first line of defense to treat most headaches, you should bear in mind that not all headaches require medication for relief. Tension headaches or migraines can be effectively treated with chiropractic care. Best of all, this type of treatment focuses on correcting the cause of the problem rather than just masking your symptoms and involves no medications or invasive procedures.
How Can Chiropractic Care Provide Headache Relief?
According to the American Chiropractic Association, spinal manipulation is an effective headache therapy option for many people. Headaches can be assessed, diagnosed, and treated by Drs. Awwad, Faulkner, and Ezell of ABChiropractic Family & Wellness.
Correcting the position of your spine using chiropractic techniques like adjustments can help alleviate acute and chronic neck pain and migraines, tension headaches, and other types of headaches. These treatments have the added benefit of improving spinal function and relieving nervous system tension. Additional therapies like exercises and stretches to complete at home can further aid in keeping you pain-free.
