Headache Treatment with Chiropractic Care
Headaches are often considered “normal” because so many people deal with them at some point in their life. However, headaches should never be considered “normal” because they are an indication that something isn’t quite right. Pain of any kind is a signal from your body that something is up and when it comes to head pain, you should consider a headache treatment if you are noticing them more frequently.
Chiropractors Provide Natural Headache Treatment to Patients
According to the American Chiropractic Association, nearly nine out of 10 Americans suffer from headaches – both acute and chronic. While the occasional headache can be treated with over the counter pain killers, chronic headaches should be treated differently.
Those who suffer from chronic headaches, migraines, and tension headaches often are prescribed high dose NSAIDs and opioids to help them deal with the pain. The problem with this method is that it doesn’t treat the source of the patient’s pain; it only treats the symptoms. What’s worse is that many individuals don’t respond well to these medications because they have minimal positive effects and many adverse side effects, including:
- Respiratory problems
- Dependency and more
A Doctor of Chiropractic can help patients by giving them a variety of options for natural headache treatment plans that don’t include any of the traditional pain medications and help control pain long-term.
Studies have shown that natural headache treatment options, including chiropractic manipulative therapy, give patients long-term pain relief. This is because it helps to put the body back into its natural alignment, while also stretching the surrounding muscles in the neck and back that often lead to headaches. This stretching helps to relieve any pressure on nerves located in the neck and shoulders that can cause chronic headaches and migraines.
