Headaches and Chiropractic
If you have a headache, you’re not alone. Australians regularly experience headaches. You may suffer from throbbing, aching or sharp stabbing sensation. The question is what is the cause and where do they come from – the spine, nerve pressure and spinal muscles are often the answer.
What do you do when you suffer from a pounding headache? Do you grit your teeth and carry on? Lie down or pop a pill and hope the pain goes away? There is a better alternative.
Research shows that chiropractic –may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck. A 2014 report in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT) found that interventions commonly used in chiropractic care improved outcomes for the treatment of acute and chronic neck pain and improves migraine and neck related headaches.
What causes a Headache?
The greatest majority of primary headaches are associated with muscle tension from joint restriction in the neck. Today, Australians are more inactive than in the past, and more hours are spent in one posture, such as sitting in front of a computer, desk or machinery. This can increase joint irritation and muscle tension in the neck, upper back and scalp, causing your head to ache.
What Can a Doctor of Chiropractic Do?
Your chiropractor may assist in many ways:
- Perform gentle, spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustments to improve spinal movement, relax muscles and alleviate the stress on your system.
- Provide nutritional advice or recommend a change in diet and the use of supplements.
- Offer advice on posture, ergonomics (work postures), exercises and relaxation techniques. This advice should help to relieve the recurring joint irritation and tension in the muscles of the neck and upper back that cause headaches.
