Natural Headache Treatment with Chiropractic

Written By Reyna Chiropractic Clinic on August 13, 2018

If you are looking for a natural headache treatment, one of the most effective treatments is chiropractic care.

Contrary to belief, chiropractic health services aren’t just about “cracking spines” or manipulating bones. 

Chiropractic care, including spinal and manual manipulations, also works on the muscle, fascia, and other parts of the mind-body system. It has been proven to be highly effective for many patients with headaches. 

How and why? 

Once you understand the common causes of headaches, it will make more sense to you.

3 Common Causes of Headaches

Headaches are very common, and something most people will experience at least once in a lifetime. Here are a few common causes of headaches that are easily helped with chiropractic care:

1. Muscular Tension

Muscle tension, primarily in the neck, shoulders, and the upper back, is a frequent cause of headaches. When you have muscular spasms in the upper part of the body, it affects the muscles that connect to the scalp and muscles of the face. 

Fascia, the “saran wrap” of the body that wraps and protects the muscles, connects from the top of the head all the way down to the back of the feet.

Clearly, if you have tension in your neck, upper back, shoulders, or even lower down the back, it can affect the muscles in your head.

2. Accidents or Trauma

Post-traumatic headaches occur after a trauma or accident affecting the head or neck, such as from an automobile accident or bicycle accident. Whiplash is a very common problem after a car crash. The muscles can be put into a constant state of spasm, with the neck vertebrae out of alignment, causing tension in the muscles of the head.

3. Cervicogenic

“Cervicogenic” refers to the neck. Headaches can be caused by problems associated with the neck. Typically, these days, this is often due to people using computers, tablets, and smartphones constantly, leading to a perpetual “head forward” position. The cervical spine (neck) goes out of alignment, causing tremendous strain in the neck and head muscles. 

Once you relieve the tension affecting the muscles of the face, head, and neck, you should receive relief from your headache. And, unlike a pill, once the underlying problems is fixed through chiropractic care, you shouldn’t revert back.
