Can Chiropractors Treat Headaches? 

Written By Destination Wellness on November 4, 2019

Woman with headache For many, the thought of a chiropractor involves notions of low-velocity adjustments to the back and neck. However, chiropractors are also well-versed in effective treatments for painful headaches and migraines. In fact, traditional chiropractic techniques help combat this area of pain for patients to provide long-term relief.

If you are in the Manalapan area and are enduring chronic, painful headaches without relief from over-the-counter painkillers, we encourage you to consider the all-natural option of regular chiropractic care as a headache treatment.

Headache Treatment Options

One important component of effective headache treatment is identifying the pain trigger. Migraine headaches – which are the most severe – can be triggered by stress, exposure to toxins, physiological imbalance, or excessive exercise. For chronic headaches not caused by underlying health conditions, treatment options could include any of the following: 

  • Balance the spine through regular manipulation and adjustments
  • Possible lifestyle and nutritional changes
  • Ergonomic working environment
  • Massage therapy to promote natural muscle relaxation

As well, chiropractic treatment for headaches may also include an assessment of overall physical activity, along with advice concerning the reduction of over-the-counter pain relief medications. For many experiencing debilitating migraines and cluster headaches, these treatment options prove effective relief quickly and without invasive medical intervention.
