Chiropractor in Oakland Talks About Headaches

chiropractic care for headaches

Nine out of ten North Americans suffer from headaches. This is a problem facing far too many people today.

How do you relieve that pounding headache? Pop a pill? Tough it out? There is a better way. Oakland chiropractors can help you eliminate the headache without costly (and hard to stomach) drugs.


Headache Causes

Primary headaches - treatable by chiropractors - are usually caused by problems associated with trauma or poor posture, which can aggravate the tendons and muscles of your head and neck. A primary headache is not generally a symptom of an underlying disease.

The most common primary headaches are:

  • Cluster headache
  • Migraine
  • Tension headache

Headaches can have all sorts of other causes that a chiropractor can also help you address, including:

  • Food allergies
  • Environmental stimuli
  • Insomnia
  • Excessive exercise
  • Blood sugar changes

Your chiropractic treatment will focus on these as well as obvious or acute trauma. Chiropractic care is care for the whole person; a good chiropractor will look at all causes, and help you to overcome that headache for good.


How a Oakland Chiropractor can help

Tension in your spine (more often than not) relates to problems in other parts of your body. A Oakland chiropractor can help isolate the causes of your headache, and formulate a plan of attack to eliminate occurrences in the future.


How will I be assessed?

Chiropractors look into your history during your initial examination; they may x-ray your neck area, and will assess your posture, searching for the root cause of your headache. Headache pain varies in location and intensity and can be caused by a myriad of scenarios. Your chiropractor will help you figure out what triggered your headache and what to do about it.


Treatment of headaches

Chiropractors can make gentle adjustments with their hands. The adjustments can correct problems, allow you to regain movement, and reduce headache pain.

It is important to note that your Oakland chiropractor will adopt whichever techniques work for your best chance at pain relief and diminished headache recurrence. Contact our team at BeWell Chiropractic Clinic today for more information.
