Headaches and Chiropractic Care

Charlotte Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches

Random, infrequent headaches may be annoying, but are a normal part of everyday life. Imagine, however, having severe headaches 2-3 times per week or worse daily. These types of chronic headaches can, and will, affect your ability to maintain a normal quality of life. If you fight off headaches almost every day, then you should consult a chiropractic doctor for headache treatment plan that assists in providing a more permanent solution.

The three most common type of headaches are classified as vascular or migraine headaches, cervicogenic , and muscle tension.

If you feel pain on one or both sides of the head and if you experience an upset stomach, you are most likely suffering from a migraine headache. Cervicogenic headaches, on the other hand, are caused by disorders of the neck. People who suffer from this are most likely experiencing restricted range of motion and pain in the neck, arm, or shoulder. Finally, muscle tension headaches are due to the tightening of facial, neck, or upper back muscles.

Some of the causes of these types of headaches are joint injury, misalignment of the cervical spine, vascular dilation or constriction, muscle tension, stress, improper biomechanics of the neck, and sleep deprivation.

Most of the time, patients take medication to control the pain or discomfort caused by this. Although drug therapy is the most common treatment, many people experience rebound headaches. The best solution for chronic migraine is chiropractic care. Your chiropractic doctor can provide a treatment plan that helps to relieve your most immediate episode, but also to provide a chiropractic maintenance program that helps you avoid the musculoskeletal triggers that cause headaches.
