How Chiropractors Treat Headaches
One of the most common and frustrating conditions to treat is a headache. When someone suffers a headache, they have probably heard all of this before. People say to lay down and take a break. Other people recommend taking a pain relief pill. Fortunately, there are better alternatives that can help someone not only treat acute headaches but also prevent them from coming back. At Cove Chiropractic in Huntsville, we specialize in taking care of the entire person. We will work together with you to find the root cause of your headaches, helping to not only treat them but prevent them from returning as well.
Finding the Root Cause of the Headache
One of the areas that we will focus on is the cause of your headaches. For some people, the root cause might be nutritional. An excess or a deficiency of one or more nutrients can cause someone to develop severe headaches that can manifest as a pounding, throbbing, or pressure sensation. In other cases, the headaches might be due to poor posture. Poor posture can cause the muscles, ligaments, and tendons of the neck and back to start to strain the head. We will work with you on your posture to try to alleviate your headaches.
Procedures to Help with Headaches
In addition, we may also recommend one or more procedures to improve the alignment of your neck and back. A gentle spinal manipulation procedure can move the vertebrae back into proper alignment, helping to alleviate the tension and stress that might be causing the headache in the first place. Prior to doing this procedure, we will take the time to answer any and all concerns that you might have. We are here to help you.
