Most people have experienced a tension headache caused by tense muscles and stress – common reactions to daily occurrences. Chiropractors are equipped with various techniques that address tension in the neck, upper back, and shoulders, often forewarnings or precursors to tension headaches. These therapies include -
- Spinal manipulations.
- Soft-tissue therapies.
- Lifestyle and posture guidance that helps to correct existing musculoskeletal imbalances.
While the root cause of a migraine headache is not fully known, many believe migraines manifest from a combination of factors – often within the nervous or vascular system. A chiropractic adjustment can provide relief to those who suffer from what can be debilitating migraine symptoms.
Headaches From Improper Posture or Poorly-Designed Ergonomics
Poor posture – whether it is a habit formed years ago or a work environment that requires awkward or repetitive movement, has the potential to develop into a headache. Chiropractors offer education and guidance regarding how to improve your environment and make better lifestyle choices to help in the reduction of neck and upper back strain.
A cervicogenic headache is caused by a misalignment or dysfunction affecting the structural integrity of your neck – which might include muscle tension or joint misalignment. Chiropractic manipulations and therapeutic exercises can assist with headache relief as well as enhance joint function.
Chiropractic Treatment Offers Headache Relief
Chiropractors are healthcare professionals who can help with the treatment of underlying conditions that contribute to headaches. While Dr. Cantu offers temporary relief from the headache symptoms, his chiropractic work can help eliminate and prevent the cause of a headache as well.
