Headaches & Chiropractic

Everyone has had headaches at one point or another. Sometimes short, sometimes long, sometimes chronic. Various types of headaches can be differentiated and can be experienced in several places in the head. Some may feel as if there is some sort of “band” wrapped tightly around the head, others have problems with the back of the head or above the eyes. This is an indicator that something is not functioning properly elsewhere. Through examination we can locate the disturbance and treat it with chiropractic.

Symptoms

There are many causes for various headaches. Examples of the different types are tension headaches, migraines, facial pain, and headaches due to whiplash. Tension headache is the most common type of headache, however.
Tension headaches are often experienced as pressing pain. People also often have the experience of a band wrapped around their head. Often one feels the pain coming up from the neck, pulling up to the head. In many cases the neck muscles are hard and tense. Tension headaches are often chronic and can occur periodically or without any regularity.

Chiropractic Care

A thorough examination is done prior to an initial adjustment. Questions will be asked, a physical examination will be done, and we will assess your status of health. In the case of a headache, we primarily want to find out where it comes from. We will mainly look at the mobility of the cervical vertebrae. After this examination we can assess whether the complaints can be treated with chiropractic adjustments. If so, chiropractic care will start immediately.
During the chiropractic adjustments, pressure techniques ensure that the mobility of the cervical vertebrae increases, muscles relax, and nerves are relieved. In addition to adjustments, advice is also given on a good (sleeping) posture, ergonomics, sports, exercises, and possibly nutrition. A healthy lifestyle is very important to reduce these headache complaints to a minimum.
