How Chiropractors Treat Migraines and Headaches

Chiropractors have many ways to combat headaches and migraines. The most common methods are spinal manipulation, soft tissue therapy, and lifestyle adjustments.

Spinal Manipulation (Adjustments)

Adjustments treat migraines and headaches caused by a problem in the neck. By adjusting the spine, chiropractors take pressure off your nervous system, reducing stress, pressure, and pain.

Soft Tissue Therapy

Soft tissue therapy is a gentle method that improves your blood flow to help reduce stress on muscles and systems. Chiropractors use soft tissue therapy for chronic pain, injuries, and muscle tension that triggers headaches. It’s a technique that can speed up your healing process, especially when paired with adjustments and physical therapy exercises.

Lifestyle Adjustments

At Heart City Health, we help you treat and prevent pain. We’ll ask about your medical history, work environment, posture, and lifestyle to find the cause of your headache. We’ll also offer tips and exercises to help you prevent future pain.

Migraine Relief

Hormone and chemical shifts cause inflammation that starts migraines. Chiropractors treat migraines by reducing that inflammation.

Common Migraine Symptoms Include

  • Pain on one side of the head
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

*Migraine symptoms are broad and some not all migraines come with head pain. If you suffer from migraines, talk to your doctor to ask if Chiropractic care may help you.

Spinal adjustments also treat some headaches. They’re especially helpful for headaches caused by misalignment. Alignment problems that cause headaches are often found in the neck.

Is seeing a chiropractor for migraines and headaches safe?

Chiropractic care is a safe, drug-free way to treat headaches and migraines. However, we do recommend talking to your doctor or chiropractor about your medical history before getting an adjustment. This is especially important if you’ve had a stroke or any other severe neck trauma.
