What do you do when you get a headache? Take pain medication or a nap? This may work when headaches are infrequent, but have you ever considered chiropractic care?
At Woodstock Chiropractic, our doctors will perform a thorough exam, which may include x-rays to help determine the cause of your headaches. Some types of headaches, called tension headaches, can originate in the neck. Research shows that spinal manipulation, (adjustments) may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches. A 2014 study in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT) showed that chiropractic care improved acute and chronic neck pain symptoms.
In addition to chiropractic manipulation, our doctors can make other recommendations to resolve your headaches, such as proper nutrition or supplements, home stretches and exercises, and recommend postural changes to help manage your symptoms.
Depending on your examination findings, if your headaches are frequent and accompanied by other symptoms like dizziness or visual changes, you may need advanced imaging like an MRI. Please don’t ignore your pain and seek immediate medical attention.
