1) Persistent headaches can have surprisingly easy treatments. Chiropractic care has a wide range of noninvasive options to relieve headache pain. Spinal manipulation, chiropractic adjustments, nutritional advice, help with everyday posture and ergonomics (work postures), exercises and relaxation techniques are just some of the options we have to work with.
Whether the cause of the headaches is structural or environmental (or both), we can offer you the solution that’s right for you.
2) There are some easy techniques everyone can use to avoid headaches. If you spend a large amount of time in one fixed position, such as in front of a computer, taking a break and stretching your head and neck in a comfortable range of motion every 30 minutes to one hour will help.
Low-impact exercises like walking also help, not to mention keeping hydrated by drinking enough water. There are many other tips, depending on your activities and lifestyle – we can provide the information that’s most useful for your life.
3) Different headaches need different approaches – thinking about the cause will help get the right solution.
The most common type of headaches, primary headaches, are not caused by an underlying medical condition such as trauma or infection (types of primary headaches include tension, cluster, and migraine).
Secondary headaches are associated with an underlying condition, and in these cases the underlying condition must be addressed as well. Also, certain types of medication produce headache as a side effect.
