It has been reported that nearly half of the world’s population suffers from headaches each year. It is often referred to as the most common disorder of the nervous system (the system of the body that chiropractors are trained to help with). I consider tension-type headaches to be the most common. A tension headache is typically a result of stress or a musculoskeletal problem often associated with poor posture.
Migraine-type headaches are considered to be the most debilitating headache that people experience. Migraine headaches are triggered in the brain, and they cause the release of pain-producing inflammatory substances around the nerves and the blood vessels in your head. This article not only discusses drug-free headache relief and approaches to relieving headache pain, but also points out some common food triggers for headaches.
Chiropractic Care for Easing a Headache or Migraine
Chiropractic care for headache relief, while not mentioned specifically in the article, has been extremely successful in helping people to reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches. In some cases, chiropractic treatment for headaches and migraines has even eliminated daily and or weekly occurrences of headaches. Because many tension-type headaches result from stress or musculoskeletal issues, chiropractic migraine treatment is a great choice for relieving headaches at the root cause.
