Headaches & Chiropractic Care: Can It Help?

Headaches & Chiropractic Care: Can It Help?

Headaches are one of the most common health complaints, with nearly everyone experiencing a headache at some point in their lives. There are many different types of headaches, each one with its own unique set of symptoms and causes. Some of the most common types of headaches include tension headaches, migraines, and cluster headaches.

Tension headaches are the most common type of headache, and are often caused by stress, fatigue, or muscle tension in the neck and shoulders. The suboccipital muscles at the base of the skull are common culprits for triggering headaches as they cause compression of the nerves when they become tight. Symptoms of a tension headache include a dull, constant pain or pressure sensation in the forehead, temples, or back of the neck.

Migraines are another common type of headache we see a lot at Dalby Chiro, and are often accompanied by additional symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines are often caused by changes in brain chemicals or blood flow, and can be triggered by a variety of factors including stress, certain foods, or hormonal changes.

Cluster headaches are a less common type of headache, but can be extremely severe and painful. These headaches are characterized by intense, burning or piercing pain on one side of the head, often around the eye. Cluster headaches can be triggered by a variety of factors including alcohol, certain foods, or tobacco smoke.

Chiropractic care can be an effective treatment option for those suffering from headaches. At Dalby Chiropractic and Wellness we strive to address the underlying issues with the spine and nervous system, chiropractors can help to alleviate the muscular tension and nerve irritation that can contribute to headaches.

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, a chiropractor may also recommend other treatments such as massage therapy, stretching and strengthening exercises, or lifestyle changes to help prevent future headaches.
