Why it’s a good idea to visit your chiropractor for headaches
Headaches are characterized by throbbing pains in the head. The pains can be located around the scalp and temples, behind the head, atop the eyes, on the forehead and behind the neck. During episodes of headaches, sufferers avoid bright lights and struggle to function normally in the workplace, the home and in other social settings.
Common types of headaches include migraine headaches, cluster headaches and tension headaches.
There is a direct link between chronic headaches and trauma in the head and neck region. Chronic headaches often occur after an accident, whiplash, bad repetitive posture, a concussion or a punch in the head. These factors can lead to misalignments of the top two neck vertebrae and a nervous system disorder. Headaches occur due to the loss of nervous system function and inflammation in the brainstem. If left uncorrected, the headaches will continue.
However, upper cervical care employs an unparalleled approach that provides long-lasting relief for sufferers of headaches.
Seeing an upper cervical chiropractor for your headaches has many advantages. Specific chiropractors use thermal imaging and X-ray devices to ascertain if chiropractic care will make any difference. If any head and/or neck injury is diagnosed, chiropractic adjustments and other types of care will be administered. These techniques will correct the misalignment in the upper cervical region, restore the nervous system function and prevent the nerve irritation that causes the headaches.
