Headache

Everyday stress takes a toll on our bodies which may lead to symptoms such as headaches. Chiropractic care is shown to be effective in helping treat headaches especially, tension headaches. After a thorough examination by a chiropractor, there are many treatment options that can help relieve your headaches and keep them away. The chiropractor may perform an adjustment allowing for your joints to realign and decrease inflammation. Additionally, muscle manipulation maybe used to decrease the muscle tension, improve circulation, and get rid of any spasms in the neck area that may be causing the headaches. Both of these techniques help to improve your range of motion and posture.

Another option to alleviate headaches is using acupuncture. Acupuncture uses really thin needles to stimulate certain points in your body to help decrease the frequency and strength of headaches.
