Headaches and migraine pain are two of the most frequent reasons people seek out chiropractic care. Apart from back pain, head pain drives people to seek relief; chiropractic care is one option to finding it.
There are many reasons for headaches, including:
- Hormonal imbalances
- Vision issues
- Too much caffeine
- Too little caffeine, if you’re a regular coffee or tea drinker
- Food sensitivities
- Misalignment in the neck and back
If you are experiencing a headache, it’s important to seek medical attention to help determine the cause. You and your doctor can determine whether your pain may stem from head or neck tension, which can cause significant pain.
Chiropractic care is often a successful treatment for headaches and migraines. If muscles are tight due to misaligned vertebrae or tense shoulders, this may translate to migraines or head pain.
Your medical provider or chiropractor can help you determine whether your headaches can be helped by chiropractic care. If you’re experiencing a headache and reside in North Central Washington, you have the option of booking an appointment with Dr. Laird for chiropractic care.
