Why You Should Use Chiropractic as a Natural Headache Treatment

Written By Levinson Chiropractic & Vax-D Therapy on March 15, 2018

A headache can get in the way of everything.

It's no fun trying to get through daily life with a splitting, chronic headache. 

According to the latest research, over 4% of Americans experience recurrent, ear-splitting headaches.

And while you may be able to mask the pain with temporary solutions, it's better to get to the underlying cause of the problem and have it treated for permanent relief. 

Chiropractic is a non-invasive option for the treatment of headaches. The American Chiropractic Association cites a study carried out in 2011. 

It found that chiropractic techniques, including spinal manipulation, improved headaches. This was proven with migraine and cervicogenic headaches. 

Cervicogenic headaches are caused by issues with the spine. If you suffer from chronic pain in any area along the spine, it could be contributing to the cause of your headaches.

Additionally, a 2014 report carried out by the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that practices typically applied in a chiropractic setting improved outcomes in the treatment of both acute and chronic neck pain. Headaches often originate in the neck.   

Natural Headache Treatment Using Chiropractic

One common cause of chronic headaches is stress. A study conducted in Australia that involved 127 people who suffered from migraines found that those who were treated with chiropractic reported suffering from fewer headaches. 

The study, carried out in 1999, found that 80 percent of the candidates said that their headaches were stress related. The researchers believe that the result indicates that chiropractic care can reduce the strain of stress on the body. 

Another trial concluded that 22 percent of patients who had chiropractic care for migraines saw the number that they suffered from reduced by 90 percent.
