Chiropractic for Chronic Headaches


Victims of chronic headaches can begin to feel helpless in the throes of their pain. They cannot think, they are distracted at work, and they cannot enjoy their relaxation time. They may have tried all sorts of pills or therapies without consistent relief. However, there is a solution. A chiropractor in Vancouver WA can help many types of chronic headache pain.

Types of Headaches

By necessity, many headache sufferers become expert in pain symptoms. Some of the more common are:
  • Headaches with pain centered in the nose region - these are often caused by allergies or other sinus problems.
  • Pain over the front-top of the head, almost like the skin is on fire.
  • Strong temple pain, often accompanied by sensitivity to light or sound - this is often the symptoms of a migraine headache.
Headaches can be caused by a variety of reasons including stress, lack of sleep, or muscle tightness. Often, a visit to the chiropractor can help with all of these problems.

How Does Chiropractic Work?

Chiropractic manipulates the bones and joints in order to restore balance to the body. This is done through a variety of methods, including physical therapy, massage therapy, and exercise programs. For instance, one cause of a headache is an out-of-joint condition in the neck. The neck muscles strain in an attempt to bring the bones back to their natural position. Restoring the proper position through chiropractic relieves the stress on the muscles and lessens the headache pain.
Quick Headache Relief
Understandably, chronic headache patients hope for a quick relief to their pain. Many patients report immediate relief to some or all of their pain after their first visit. To complete therapy, they may come back several times over the following few weeks in order to help the body recover. In addition, many patients of chiropractic in Vancouver WA return on a regular monthly basis to maintain their body in healthy balance and help prevent future headaches. If you suffer debilitating head pain, please contact a chiropractor you trust.
