Headaches can be caused from radiating pain from other areas in the spine, neck and head area. If you suffer from reoccurring headaches, they may be a symptom of another issue, especially if you have other symptoms. Taking pain medication only masks issue. Chiropractic care can often treat the cause of your headaches and give you long-term relief.
Chiropractic Conditions and Headaches
Chiropractic care involves adjustments in the back, neck and spine. It can also involve massage and other therapies that can impact the muscles and joints, including the jaw joint. Nutrition is also an integral part of chiropractic care. There are many issues in the neck, spine and jaw that can cause headaches, which can be treated by a chiropractor. Some of these conditions include:
- Neck or cervical issues. Tension and strain on the neck can cause headaches; they can also be caused by more serious disc or spinal issues. Chiropractic treatment can relieve strain on the neck and treat conditions that may be causing headaches.
- Muscle and joint problems in the jaw like TMJ/TMD are a common cause of headaches. Massage and certain chiropractic techniques can alleviate jaw joint stress and headaches, giving patients relief.
- Nutritional deficiencies. In some cases, headaches may be caused by nutritional deficiencies or overall system issues. Chiropractic care can help address these issues, improving overall health and reducing issues that can cause frequent headaches.
You should not have to live with ongoing headaches. Consider visiting a chiropractor to explore possible chiropractic headache treatment options that may relieve neck, jaw or back pain, and also help reduce the frequency and intensity of your headaches.
