How does Chiropractic Care Help Headaches?

There are many different types of headaches, and many causes of them. One of the main causes of primary headaches (tension, migraine, or cluster) is tension in the neck or back. Many people who experience migraines also suffer from muscle tension, neck stiffness and jaw function as well. 

While there are anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants and basic physical therapy available, research shows us that chiropractic adjustments are an effective treatment for headaches.  Researchers at Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center found that spinal manipulation resulted in almost immediate relief for headaches originating in the neck. They also found that there were fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief from headaches than commonly prescribed medication.

The TexStar Solution

For most sufferers, headaches have countless different triggers so instead of trying to identify each trigger and trying to eliminate them from your life we take a different approach at TexStar.

We focus on improving your physiology so that when you are exposed to those triggers your body doesn't respond in a way that produces headaches.

Here are a few treatments we use to accomplish this:

Chiropractic Adjustments

By restoring and maintaining normal motion in the joints of the neck and head we are able to reduce muscle tightness and spasms in the area which is a main contributor to some of the most common types of headaches.

MLS Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy decreases inflammation around the sensitive nerves at the base of your skull. With less irritation these nerves are far less likely to start the cascade of problems that lead to major headaches.

Postural Correction

Head forward posture is extremely common among headache sufferers because it creates tension on the ligaments, muscles, joints, and nerves in the neck. Tension on these structures affects blood supply to the head which commonly triggers headaches.

With our highly trained staff, cutting-edge technology, and advanced treatments, you can expect swift relief and long-lasting results. Schedule a consultation today and receive a personalized solution for your pain.
