How Chiropractic Treatment Alleviates Tension Headaches
When patients see a professional chiropractor to treat their headaches, the paperwork they complete include questions regarding how their headaches impact both their wellbeing and their day-to-day activities. This data can be used to monitor a patient’s progress over time. Similarly, patients may be asked for data at each visit regarding the frequency, intensity, and duration of their headaches since their last visit to determine if a new approach to treatment should be considered.
Chiropractic offers multiple types of treatments intending to reduce neck and headache pain, restore function to the vertebrae in the cervical spine—especially in the upper cervical region—and teaching the patient preventative methods of self-management such as exercises, ice or heat, and dietary modifications.
One of the most common types of headaches begin at the base of the head and radiate into the back of the head, to the temporal region, and/or behind the eyes. These headaches are often Cervicogenic Headaches, which is a fancy term that simply means headaches that start from the neck (cervical=neck, genic/genesis=origin). Chiropractic care has been shown to be extraordinarily effective at eliminating these headaches. Of course, that is logical. Think about it: if there is a problem in your neck irritating the nerves, which leads to a radiating headache, does taking a pill or getting a shot do anything to relieve the irritation to the nerve? Of course not, those medical approaches only keep you from feeling the irritated nerve for a while, then the headaches will return all over again. The chiropractic approach is to remove the cause of the headache.
