Headache Treatment with Chiropractic and Physiotherapy
Frequent headaches can make it difficult to get through your busy days. Headaches make it hard to concentrate on work or school; often, you are forced to swallow some pain relievers and rest until it goes away. But if you’re looking for a way to relieve your pain that doesn’t force you to pop pills, consider headache treatment with chiropractic and physiotherapy.
What Causes Headaches?
There are a couple different types of headaches:
- Tension headaches
- Minor headaches
Migraines and tension headaches are some of the most severe headaches. In addition to incredible pain, people who suffer from these may experience blurred vision, sensitivity to light, dizziness, and nausea.
A “minor” headache is a more typical, every day one. It may not be a migraine, but it can certainly cause a great deal of discomfort. These headaches are often a signal to the body that something is off, and they can be caused by a number of changes such as:
- Drinking or smoking too much
- Hunger or dehydration
- Too much noise
- Polluted air
In fact, there are so many factors that could trigger a headache that it may be easier to list what would not bring one on.
Although headaches are annoying and can be debilitating, they are usually not a sign of something serious. And because they can often can be controlled by visits to the chiropractor, you don’t have to rely on pharmaceuticals to help you feel better.
How Can Chiropractic Care and Physiotherapy Help With Headaches?
Believe it or not, headaches can be brought in by problems with your spine and neck. If the head is not receiving proper support, it can cause pain. Chiropractors examine your spine to ensure all vertebrae are moving properly; if anything is not, they can use manual manipulation to adjust spinal segments. They can also use physiotherapy and special stretches to keep your body flexible, and discuss what behaviors can lead to headaches and other body aches.
