Headache Relief

man with headache

Nearly everyone has occasional headaches, but some people suffer from them chronically. Recurring headaches and migraines can severely limit the quality of life. Most people who have frequent headaches are not suffering from an underlying health condition, but rather are experiencing headaches as a side effect of stress, poor sleep habits, overuse of caffeine, or even poor posture. Chiropractic has been shown to help alleviate the frequency and intensity of headaches among many chronic sufferers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I visit a chiropractor for headache relief?

If you are suffering from chronic headaches and are looking for a more natural means of treating your pain rather than over-the-counter medications, you could benefit from chiropractic treatment. According to, a Duke University study found that chiropractic treatment is highly effective in the relief of tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck, which are the most common type of headaches in America. In fact, tension headaches can recur on a near-daily basis when left untreated.

What should I expect at my appointment?

Your first visit will include a complete analysis of your symptoms, including the severity and frequency of your headaches. You’ll also answer questions about your family health history, as well as your dietary and sleep habits. Together with your chiropractor, you will work to identify potential headache triggers through a process of elimination.

Is there anything I can do between appointments to alleviate my headaches?

Yes. Be sure to get plenty of sleep each night and take steps to minimize your stress. Drink plenty of water each day to avoid headache-causing dehydration, and spend time each day stretching and participating in mild to moderate exercise.
