How Your Chiropractor Can Help with Headaches

There are many causes of headaches, including stress, diet, allergies, and underlying medical conditions like high blood pressure. One of the most common causes of headache pain is tense muscles in your neck, shoulders, and back. When your muscles are tense in these areas, the tension can put pressure on nerves, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Headaches can be identified by type. The main types of headaches are:

  • Tension headaches
  • Migraines
  • Cluster headaches
  • Exertional headaches
  • Sinus headaches
  • Caffeine related headaches
  • Menstrual headaches

Everyone has headaches occasionally, but if you have frequent moderate to severe headaches, you should visit your chiropractor for treatment. Your chiropractor may recommend:

  • Manual neck and spinal adjustments, to realign your neck and spine and alleviate pressure on your nerves
  • Neck and shoulder therapeutic massage, to boost circulation and help relax tension and muscle strain
  • Biofeedback training monitors areas of tense muscles and teaches you how to help your muscles relax
  • Relaxation training, including deep breathing, meditation, and stress reduction techniques to help reduce mind and body stress
  • Lifestyle modification including dietary changes, and regular exercise to enhance your overall health and wellness
  • Postural exercises to promote good posture and reduce tension and headaches
