Did you know that Chiropractors treat many of the causes of Headaches and Migraines?
Too Much Tension
Chiropractic can help to relieve tightness in your neck muscles. This can be due to stress and tension in your neck, shoulders or back, which can be a major contributor to headaches and migraines.
Chiropractic can also be very effective in the treatment of headaches that are the result of an injury or repetitive strain to your neck (known as cervicogenic headaches). These are usually dull or aching pains, affecting the base of the skull or one or both sides of your head.
Chiropractic – Not Just For Backs
A report published in 2001 by the Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center in the USA found that spinal manipulation (or adjustments) resulted in an almost immediate improvement for those headaches which stem from the neck and had considerably fewer side effects and more sustained relief from tension headaches than frequently prescribed medication.
Unlike painkilling drugs, Chiropractic treats the cause of pain, not just the pain itself. Your Chiropractor will carry out a full examination and ask you detailed questions about your medical history and lifestyle to discover the cause of your headaches.
