Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

By Ashley Chapman 

Do you experience chronic headaches? Headaches may be causing you constant pain and discomfort. Depending on the type of headache you are experiencing, it may also be stopping you from enjoying daily activities. Read more to find out the most common types of headaches and how chiropractic care may offer relief.  

Types of Common Headaches 

Headaches are pain that is occurring in your nerves, blood vessels and muscles located in your head and neck. The three most common types of headaches are tension headaches, migraines and cluster headaches.

Tension Headaches

These types of headaches are most common and can range in pain levels. Tension headaches are most commonly caused by tension in the neck muscles.

Migraine Headaches 

These types of headaches can be extremely painful and may occur often. Migraines, unlike tension headaches, may have various symptoms associated with them.

Some symptoms of migraines may include:

  • Vomiting
  • Blurred vision
  • Upset stomach
  • Loss of appetite

Cluster Headaches 

Cluster headaches are the most painful type of headache. You may experience pain in various locations on your head, and you may experience recurrent attacks. The symptoms you may experience are similar to migraines, such as nausea. However, other common symptoms will distinguish your headache as a cluster.

Some of these cluster headache symptoms may include:

  • Pain in or around one eye
  • Redness in the eye, on the same side as your headache
  • Swelling in the eye, on the same side as your headache
  • Sweating on  your forehead

Chiropractic Care 

If you are experiencing some of these common types of headaches, visiting a chiropractor may offer relief.

Chiropractors are doctors who manipulate the joints -- usually along the spine -- to improve joint mobility and to lower inflammation in your joints and spine. Improvement in your joints, flexibility and spine, may offer long-term relief to your headaches.

The long-term benefits of seeing a chiropractor for your headaches may include:

  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Reduced tension in neck and back
  • Decrease in inflammation

Along with offering relief, seeing a chiropractor may eliminate your need to use over-the-counter medications, which offer temporary relief.
