Can a Chiropractor Really Treat Headaches?

You might not think of visiting a chiropractor when it comes to having a headache, but it’s definitely something to consider. Headaches have a way of ruining your day and interfering with many important things. Unfortunately, heading for the medicine cabinet will do nothing but provide a temporary reprieve from the pain. Visiting a chiropractor like Dr. Airhart at Crossroads Chiropractic Clinic in Victoria, TX, however, is an effective way to experience lasting pain. Learn more about how below.

Understanding Headaches

Like every other type of pain, a headache is a sign that something isn’t right. Often, that something is tied up in the musculoskeletal system. One example is tension in the neck and shoulders, which can cause tension headaches. Another example is a misalignment that can cause a herniated disc and compressed nerve.

The previous examples only scratch the surface, but the truth is that any issue in the musculoskeletal system can lead to headaches and migraines. The good news is that chiropractors specialize in treating the musculoskeletal system naturally to provide lasting relief.

Chiropractic Techniques for Headaches

One of the first steps in achieving lasting relief from headaches is to determine the root cause and contributing factors. Your treatment plan will then be developed according to that information.

In many cases, a misalignment is at the root of your pain, as it can lead to tension, herniated discs, nerve compression, and more. Therefore, most treatment plans will include adjustments to the neck and back.

Soft tissue techniques are often used for headaches to address tension and trigger points. These soft tissue techniques can include chiropractic massage, myofascial technique, acupuncture, dry needling, and many other methods. Therapeutic exercise is also used in many cases to help stretch and strengthen the neck, shoulders, and upper back.

Another key factor in chiropractic treatment for headaches is lifestyle adjustments. These include recommendations and guidance for correcting habits and other factors that might contribute to your pain.

For example, poor posture and poor sleeping positions often play a role in headaches. Your chiropractor will help you work to improve your posture and develop healthy sleep habits to both eliminate and prevent headaches.
