Alleviate Your Headaches With Natural Chiropractic Care

person with hand on head due to a headacheDull, aching head pain. A sensation of pressure or tightness on the sides and back of the head or across the forehead. There are many headache symptoms and different types of headaches. These include tension headaches, cervicogenic headaches, migraines and others. There are also many reasons why people get them. At Parkside Health & Wellness Center, we have had great success helping many patients get relief from their headaches.

How Does Chiropractic Help?

In chiropractic, if there a skeletal misalignment is present, it can affect cerebral spinal flow or blood flow to the head, which can cause headaches. Gentle spinal manipulation can help alleviate many types of headaches.

People who grind their teeth at night can also experience headaches. In those cases, we work on the patient’s TMJ and on their neck, as well as their head and whole body. We can help balance the blood flow that goes to the brain, thereby reducing the severity and types of headaches.

Perhaps best of all, chiropractic care gets to the root cause and addresses headaches naturally, without medication, which often comes with side effects.

How Many Sessions Will Be Needed?

The length of the treatment plan depends on the person and their situation. Some people respond well in a few visits, and some need more.

Dietary Triggers

Sometimes headaches can be attributed to dietary issues. We work to consult with the patient about what they’re eating, which may trigger headaches. Here are some common dietary triggers that can cause headaches:

  • Artificial sweeteners
  • Food colorings
  • Preservatives
  • Processed food
  • Gluten
  • Dark chocolate
  • Red wine
  • Aged cheeses

If you find that any of the above bring on headaches, avoiding them may help you be headache-free. It is very common that people are unaware that the drinks or food s they consume can cause headaches.
