Stop letting frequent headaches ruin your day. Find out what could be causing your issues.
It’s amazing how much your day can really take a turn for the worse when you feel a headache approaching. Soon the throbbing and aching is too much and you have to abandon all your daily plans until it subsides. Of course, if you experience frequent headaches, you really want to know what to do to stop it. Our Gaithersburg, Potomac, Urbana and Clarksburg, MD, chiropractors offer up some common causes of headaches and how chiropractic care may be able to help.
The common culprits behind your headache could be:
- Eye strain
- Muscle tension or strain
- Lacking nutrients or a poor diet
- Alcohol or smoking
- Vertebrae misalignment
It’s not uncommon for those who work at a desk to find themselves dealing with frequent headaches due to tension or head or neck misalignments. When you seek our Clarksburg chiropractic doctor for care we will perform a spinal exam to determine if chiropractic care could improve your symptoms. More importantly, during this exam, we can tell whether there are misalignments within certain vertebrae in the spine that could be exacerbating your condition.
Since we know that no two patients ever experience the same kind of headaches, we tailor our chiropractic adjustments (or spinal manipulation) to fit your needs. We will determine if the misalignment is in the neck or the head (or both) and then through manipulation we will realign the vertebrae so they are no longer putting pressure on the nerves.
When will I experience relief through chiropractic care?
Everyone is different, but we are happy to report that a lot of patients notice a positive change very quickly. Some may even notice it after just one session. Of course, how quickly your body responds to treatment will really depend on how long you’ve been battling these issues before coming in for care.
It’s also important to note that you should still come in for regular maintenance care even if you aren’t experiencing symptoms. It will take time to retrain the muscles around the spine to work efficiently if your body has been out of alignment. Chiropractic treatment can help strengthen and reprogram those muscles to do the job they're supposed to in order to reduce your headaches in the future.
