Does Chiropractic Care Treat Headaches?

Yes! Chiropractor care is an effective treatment for different types of headaches. Our team at Vida Integrated Health helps treat neuromuscular disorders through non-invasive techniques such as spinal manipulation, massage, acupuncture and physical therapy. We help stretch and align your spinal cord, increasing blood flow to your central nervous system. This reduces headache symptoms, pain frequency, duration, and medication. 

Vida’s Chiropractic care is a safe and natural alternative to harmful painkillers. We help reduce headaches in different ways, including:

  • Improving central nervous system coordination by aligning and stretching the spine.
  • Stretching compressed nerves send pain signals to your brain through relaxation techniques.
  • Easing trigger points by releasing muscle tension and pressure that causes headaches.
  • Restoring blood circulation within the central nervous system through spine manipulation.
  • Strengthening the muscles supporting your neck and the spine for optimal mobility.
  • Unlocking your body’s healing ability by increasing blood flow and boosting spinal function.
  • Discovering headache triggers to avoid a happy and migraine-free life.

Start your headache treatment by visiting our licensed Chiropractor at Vida Integrated Health for a physical examination. The assessment enables us to understand the causes and symptoms of headaches. If you experience headaches daily, our experts can determine possible triggers such as diet, stress, or alcohol. Once we diagnose what is causing your headaches, we can create a treatment plan for your needs.

We use acupuncture, spinal adjustments, soft tissue manipulation and massage treatments to help reduce headaches. Our experts also guide you on what trigger factors to avoid for excellent headache management.

Ways a Chiropractor Helps Treat and Reduce Headaches

Here are some chiropractic treatments that are particularly beneficial for headache management:

Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments

Manual spinal adjustment or manipulation involves applying controlled force to a particular joint of your spine. This makes it the only effective treatment recommended for cervicogenic headaches. The headaches often start as one-sided pain in the cervical spine found in the neck and at the back of your head.

Our trained Chiropractors at Vida Integrated Health use their hands to apply careful force to your cervical spine. As the chiropractor adjusts your cervical spine, the joints in your neck separate. Gas enters the space created at an increased motion, producing a cracking or popping sound. Your cervical spine in your neck region stretches, increasing blood flow to the brain. This helps reduce headache pains caused by cervical spine injuries or misalignments.

Stretching Neck Muscles

Our Chiropractic care combines various deep neck flexion exercises to help ease headaches. We direct you to move your neck joint and muscles actively. For instance, lie flat on the bed and help perform several motions such as chin tucks and nodding your head for around 10 seconds. You rest for 10 seconds and repeat the movements 15 times. These exercises stretch your deep neck flexor muscles, reducing headaches.

Myofascial Decompression (Cupping)

Myofascial decompression is a neuromuscular therapy that targets musculoskeletal disorders to ease trigger points. At Vida Integrated Health, the therapy focuses on stretching trigger points within your neck, back, and head. This helps free the tense nerves sending pain signals to your brain from pressure.

We offer the best myofascial decompression massages to help relax your head and neck muscles to increase blood flow to your brain. The therapy helps relieve stress, reducing the frequency and intensity of migraine headache symptoms.

Joint and Bone Adjustments

Joint and bone adjustment is a chiropractic therapy that involves the passive movement or manipulation of your joints and bones. Our exclusive joint adjustment therapy focuses on relaxing pressure points within your cervical spine. This enhances blood flow, improves head movement, and reduces headaches.

Strengthening Neck Muscles and Tissues

We use muscle and soft tissue strengthening techniques like low-load craniocervical mobilization to ease headaches. It is chiropractic care that targets your cranial muscles and cervical spine.

Our specialists apply less force than that used in spinal adjustments. The force helps stretch and align your cervical spine in the upper back region. This facilitates easy and flexible rhythmic movements of the cervical joints, relieving headaches.

Multidisciplinary Care Intervention

Studies show that multidisciplinary care intervention is effective in alleviating migraine headaches. It applies various methods to reduce headache intensity, duration, and frequency.

We offer comprehensive chiropractic treatment, which combines several approaches to relieve headaches. Some of these techniques our experts use include:

  •   Relaxation techniques
  •   Nutrition counseling
  •   Strengthening muscles
  •   Stress management
  •   Physical therapy exercises
