Almost everyone suffers from a headache at one point or another, but some suffer from headaches chronically. A headache can range from a dull throbbing pain to an intense debilitating pain known as a migraine, which are often recurring. Many people who suffer from headaches and migraine frequently don’t have an underlying health condition, but instead are suffering from headaches due to sitting improperly, not sleeping well, stress, or even consuming too much caffeine. Chiropractic treatment is proven to help relieve the severity of headaches and how often they occur.
When you visit your chiropractor for headaches, one of the treatments they may recommend is spinal manipulation. Research has shown that spinal manipulation may be an effective treatment for headaches that start in the neck, such as tension headaches, and also help improve migraine and cervicogenic headaches. Your chiropractor may also suggest better sleeping habits and less caffeine, and if your job has you sitting for long periods of time, they may also suggest getting up and stretching regularly to promote proper blood flow.
