Do you suffer from chronic headaches? If so, are you tired of continuously having to get pain killers? Chiropractic care is a safe alternative to medication in reducing headache pain.
Headaches affect just about everyone at some point or the other. Some people only experience pain behind the eyes or in one part of their head, others experience a pounding sensation inside their entire head, and some even experience nausea. The pain itself can be dull or sharp and may last anywhere from a few minutes to as long as a few days. Fortunately, very few headaches have serious underlying causes, but those that do require urgent medical attention.
There are a number of things that can spark chronic headaches. For example cervicogenic headaches which are caused by disorders in the neck. Cervicogenic headaches are frequently the result of injury or trauma and give similar symptoms of migraines and tension headaches.
According to recent studies, chiropractic adjustments help offer substantial relief to persons suffering from cervicogenic headaches – headaches caused by a neck disorder. The study did a comparison between the effects of chiropractic treatment and light massage for patients with cervicogenic headaches. Noticeable improvement was shown with patients who received chiropractic adjustments as opposed to those who received light massages. The chiropractic patients experienced less pain and a greater reduction in headaches. The chiropractic patients also discovered that they encountered fewer headaches during their lives and were less disabled by them than in the past.
It was concluded that chiropractic treatments had a distinct clinical advantage over light massage when it comes to treating headaches. There are real, lasting benefits for people with chronic headaches through chiropractic.

Many people think migraines are just a simple headache, but they’re actually not. Migraines can be DEBILITATING! According to MayoClinic.org, migraines “can cause intense throbbing or a pulsing sensation in one area of the head.” And migraines are usually followed by side effects such as:
Migraines aren’t your regular headaches. Most people depend on the use of pharmaceuticals to help keep migraines under control, but these meds can also come with their very own side effects.
Fortunately, there is an alternative approach to migraines – chiropractic. In a 2012 study, it was found that there was a 68% reduction in a migraine’s intensity when chiropractic adjustments and massages were administered to individuals. Gentle massaging, stretching and chiropractic adjustments of the neck and upper back were given to 10 male migraine sufferers in the study. After an hour, they were asked about the pain reduction. On a scale of 1 to 10, the average rating was 5 and after the treatment, the rating dropped to 0.5. They did not have to take any medications either.
A chiropractor can not only offer you migraine relief through chiropractic adjustments, but through consultations on eliminating headache triggers, proper nutrition and exercise.
