Chiropractic for Headaches

If you've got a headache, we at Ocean Chiropractic send our sympathy, and want to reach out with a healthy hand! We know first hand how quickly and severely that constant pain can ruin your day. You're also not alone, nine out of ten people suffer from headaches. If you have the misfortune of chronic or debilitatingly painful headaches, the ritual of popping an over-the-counter pain pill and lying in a dark room is likely all too familiar.  Assuming by the fact that you've landed on this page, you've probably realized that this method has it's limits. Luckily, your chiropractor is well equipped to treat chronic headaches.

What Causes Headaches?

The three most common causes of headache are dehydration, food sensitivity, and structural imbalance. Dehydration is easy enough to fix, and food sensitivity requires more specialized care, so we'll focus on structural issues!

When muscles and joints lose their normal motion and position in the neck, that can effect both nerve and blood supply to specialized, fragile structures and contribute to headaches. By restoring normal structural alignment, motion, and position, you remove nerve interference and restore normal muscle tone and blood flow. Our patients tend to have a dramatic reduction in frequency of headaches after initial treatment, followed by a reduction in severity after follow-up appointments.

Something else to be aware of is aggravating factors from a structural perspective. Every so often after correcting the spinal misalignment, we'll look at your computer, TV, home, and hobby situations, and encourage modifying behaviors that can aggravate headaches, as well as provide stretches that can help you maintain wellness and need less treatment in the future.

How Chiropractic Helps

Chiropractors utilize a practice called spinal manipulation, a drug free treatment where misalignments in the spine are corrected through physical pressure and specialized massage techniques to provide patients with relief from headaches and more. In addition to the adjustment, a chiropractor can help you resolve your headaches through recommending stretches and rehabilitation practices and by providing lifestyle and diet advice, especially as they pertain to habits that aggravate symptoms.
