Do You Feel Like Your Headache is Never-Ending?

There are 150 diagnostic headache categories. And 9 out of 10 Americans suffer from chronic headaches, according to the American Chiropractic Association.
Anti-inflammatory medicines only deliver momentary relief. For primary headaches, such as migraines, cluster headaches and tension headaches, symptoms can be painful, and sometimes the headaches can be debilitating. If that’s the case, a professional may need to intervene to check for misalignment of the vertebrae and nerve tension—both can cause migraines and tension headaches.
Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches
Back pain isn’t the only problem chiropractors treat. Many patients visit a chiropractic clinic on a regular basis for the treatment of headaches. There are a number of techniques used for relieving chronic headaches and migraines:
· Neck adjustments
· Deep tissue massage
· Education and instruction for better posture (helps with back and neck pain)
King Chiropractic has a highly skilled team of chiropractors who focus on rehabilitation of the joints, and an X-ray and consultation can help detect what is causing your headaches. And then we can plan and implement a treatment.
What Can You Do About a Headache?
You can help reduce the occurrence of headaches by making simple changes at home:
· Find time to relax muscles – tense muscles add to tension headaches.
· Drink eight glasses of water a day – headaches can be a symptom of dehydration.
· Don’t try to adjust your neck – a trained professional is the only person who should manipulate the vertebrae for treatment purposes.
