Headaches are a common ailment that many people suffer from every day. When you’re experiencing a particularly painful headache, it can be difficult to get through your days. While people often rely upon pharmaceuticals to relieve their pain, it is possible to treat headaches with chiropractic care.

What Causes Headaches?

A typical headache can be caused by a myriad of reasons such as:

  • Nerve Irritation
  • Muscle Tention
  • Overeating
  • Not eating enough
  • Dehydration
  • A change in the weather
  • Drinking too much alcohol
  • Eyestrain
  • Pollution

Some people suffer from much more extreme headaches like migraines or tension headaches. On top of excruciating discomfort, these people may also experience nausea, dizziness, sensitivity to light, and blurred vision.

What Can a Chiropractor Do For Headaches?

You may think a chiropractor can only help with neck or back pain, but they can actually treat many other ailments. Chiropractors approach your pain holistically: by treating the whole body, you can experience relief from pain and discomfort all over. Spinal manipulations can ease tension in your muscles and joints, and reduce impact to your central nervous system.
