Every day, millions of Americans suffer from headaches and migraines, which can be not only painful but debilitating for some. While many people resort to OTC or prescription medication to diminish their discomfort, chiropractic care may help.

How Does It Relieve Headaches?

Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system. Chiropractors believe that misalignments in the spine can interfere with nerve function and lead to various health problems, including headaches.

There are several ways that chiropractic care can help with headaches. One way is by improving spinal alignment. When the spine is misaligned, it can put pressure on nerves and blood vessels, leading to pain and inflammation. Chiropractic adjustments can help to restore proper spinal alignment and reduce stress on nerves and blood vessels.

Another way that chiropractic care can help headaches is by reducing muscle tension. Muscle tension in the neck and upper back can contribute to headaches. Chiropractic massage and other soft tissue therapies can help to relax muscles and reduce tension.

Chiropractic care can also help with headaches by improving circulation. When circulation is poor, it can lead to a buildup of toxins in the body, which can trigger headaches. Chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy can help to improve circulation and reduce the buildup of toxins.

What the Research Says

Research has shown that chiropractic care can be an effective treatment for a variety of headaches, including tension headaches, cervicogenic headaches, and migraines. A 2011 study published in the journal Headache found that chiropractic care was more effective than over-the-counter pain medication for reducing the frequency and intensity of tension headaches.

Another study, which was published in the journal Spine in 2016, found that chiropractic care was effective in reducing the frequency and severity of migraines. The study also revealed that chiropractic care was more effective than medication in preventing migraines.
