Headaches Q & A

What causes headaches?

Headaches can develop for a number of reasons, including your everyday activities and chronic underlying health conditions. Common triggers for headaches include:

  • Stress
  • Insomnia
  • Strenuous activity
  • Blood sugar changes

Environmental stimuli, such as lights, noises, and even certain foods, can trigger headaches.

For some, misalignments in the spine can cause muscle tightness in the neck and shoulders that trigger tension headaches.

Headache pain can range from a dull ache to intense, throbbing pain that interferes with your quality of life. Headaches may even cause nausea, vomiting, and difficulties with your vision and cognitive health.

How does chiropractic care treat headaches?

If you struggle with chronic pain from frequent headaches or migraines, the team at HealthWise Chiropractic offers custom therapies to help you find relief and reduce your use of pain medications.

The experienced chiropractors assess your condition and perform a physical exam to determine potential causes of your headache. They may recommend hands-on chiropractic adjustments to treat headaches that result from spinal misalignments. By realigning your spine into proper position, chiropractic treatments can treat headaches by alleviating pressure on the nerves and improving blood circulation.  

In addition to spinal manipulations, your HealthWise Chiropractic provider may suggest massage therapy to relax tight muscles and eliminate tension from your neck and shoulders.

Initial treatment may provide some relief of headache pain, but you’ll likely need multiple visits to correct a misalignment in your spine. Based on your condition, your HealthWise Chiropractic provider can design a treatment plan and schedule, tailoring therapy to your needs.

What other services are available for chronic headaches?

The skilled chiropractors at HealthWise Chiropractic take a total-care approach to treatment. To ensure you gain long-term relief of chronic headache pain, the providers can also work with you to prevent frequent headaches.

Your HealthWise Chiropractic provider can suggest lifestyle modifications to reduce tension in your neck and spine, such as:

  • Drinking enough water
  • Avoiding long periods of sitting
  • Engaging in daily physical activity

Your provider can also address dietary deficiencies to improve overall health and wellness.
