Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

There's a Hammer in My Head

Many of us have suffered from headaches at some stage. Some people suffer from headaches frequently while others may have an occasional headache. There are many different types of headaches and many different triggers for them such as stress, foods, dehydration, lack of sleep, etc. Ninety-five percent of headaches are primary headaches which means the headaches are not caused by disease; meaning the headache itself is the primary concern.

Tension headaches are the most common type of primary headaches. Most people describe the feeling of a tension headache as a dull, achy type of feeling: these headaches can last anywhere from thirsty minutes to several days. The most common cause of tension headaches are subluxations in the upper back and neck area. (Subluxations are areas of the spine that have misaligned, lost normal movement and the nerve roots in that area become irritated). Subluxations in these areas can also contribute to migraines, sinus headaches, cluster headaches and headaches in general.

There are many research studies that have shown chiropractic care to be an effective way to treat headaches. A study done in 2001 by Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center found that spinal adjustments "resulted in almost immediate improvement for those headaches that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer lasting relief of tension-type headaches than commonly prescribed medications." Who doesn't want fewer side effects and longer lasting relief?!

Cases vary and a thorough consultation and examination should be done before determining a course of care or a referral to another healthcare practitioner. At Blossom Chiropractic Office, we love seeing how chiropractic care helps to get rid of headaches so you can function, adapt and heal at your highest level.
