Will Chiropractic Help Headaches?
One of the questions I want to answer today is “How will chiropractic care help headaches?”
Headaches can be caused by many different things, but one of the most common types of headaches is called a tension headache, which feels like a tight band running around your head. A lot of times what’s happening is that you have tight neck muscles and decreased spinal motion, so a lot of these types of headaches respond VERY well to chiropractic care, either resolving or at least decreasing in severity and frequency.
Something that’s really important to go over while we’re on the topic of headaches is some of the danger signs of more severe causes. If you ever have a headache that you would describe as the absolute worst headache/pain you’ve ever had in your life and it’s sudden onset OR if you have facial drooping, weakness in the arms, or speech changes, you should seek immediate medical advice.
