Do you suffer from headaches? If so, you are not alone. Nine out of ten Americans suffer from Headaches ranging from dull occasional to severe throbbing. Some headaches may even cause nausea and vision changes. Headaches have many causes such as foods, environmental stimuli, and behaviors. About 5% of all headaches are warning signals caused by physical problems and 95% of all headaches are primary headaches, such a tension, migraine, or cluster headaches. These types of headaches are not caused by disease so there for the headache itself is the main concern.

What do you do when you suffer from a headache? Do you continue with your day and hope it goes away, lie down, or do you take an over the counter medication for relief? If you answered yes to any of the questions above please know that there is a better way to treat your headaches... Chiropractic Care!

What can a Doctor of Chiropractic do to treat a headache?

A DC may do one or more of the following if you suffer from a primary headache:

  • Perform a spinal manipulation to improve signal function, to improve vascular flow which will increase the amount of oxygen going to your brain and to alleviate stress
  • Provide nutritional advice, recommending a change in diet and perhaps supplementation
  • Offer advice on posture, exercises and relaxation techniques
  • Physical therapy such as muscle stimulations, pulsed ultrasound and decompression therapy
  • Acupuncture may also be performed if deemed necessary by doctor and patient

How can acupuncture help?

Acupuncture can offer powerful relief without the side effects that prescription and over-the-counter medications can cause. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine have been used to relieve headaches and migraines for thousands of years and is a widely accepted form of treatment for headaches in our society.
