People get headaches for many reasons, but no matter what the cause, an intense headache has the power to derail a person’s day and affect their ability to carry on with daily life. Common headaches are migraine, tension, and cervicogenic, and it’s essential to take them seriously, especially if they occur frequently. While over-the-counter medications provide temporary relief, they won’t get to the root of the issue. Tension headaches are the most common type of headache, and people will often turn to their chiropractors for a safe and effective solution. Chiropractors are skilled at assessing, diagnosing, and managing their patient’s headaches, utilizing various techniques. Manual therapy, soft tissue therapy, lifestyle changes, education, and electrical stimulation are all viable treatment options.

These may include foods, environmental stimuli (noises, lights, stress, etc.) and behaviors (insomnia, excessive exercise, blood sugar changes) Chiropractors can assess, diagnose, and manage headaches. Current evidence suggests that chiropractic care, including manual therapy, can be effective in treating cervicogenic and tension headaches. Studies have also shown that chiropractic care can help decrease the intensity and frequency of migraines.Schedule an Appointment
