Chiropractic Relief for Headaches and Migraines

For anyone who has grappled with headaches or migraines, you understand the torment they can inflict. These unwelcome intruders disrupt your day or night, impair your focus, and mar your overall well-being. Explore the common causes behind these distressing experiences and discover how chiropractic care can provide respite from this prevalent and painful affliction.

Headache Statistics

Headaches are a widespread phenomenon, affecting populations across the globe. According to the World Health Organization, approximately 47 percent of adults worldwide have encountered a headache at least once in the past year. Research indicates that women are more susceptible to headaches than men, although the precise reasons remain elusive.

While there are over 200 headache variants, the "Tension Type Headache" is the most prevalent. Episodic tension headaches reportedly afflict 70 percent of specific populations, with 1 to 3 percent of adults enduring chronic tension headaches. These headaches engender pressure and a dull ache around the forehead, temples, or the back of the head.

Migraine Headaches

Migraines represent the most severe category of headaches, capable of incapacitating the sufferer entirely. These headaches often manifest alongside additional symptoms, including:

  • Dizziness

  • Light sensitivity

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Blurred vision

 

Trauma, Toxins, and Thoughts

While there exists a multitude of headache triggers, chiropractors focus on the "three Ts": trauma, toxins, and thoughts. Trauma encompasses accidents and injuries, toxins encompass chemical exposure from everyday skincare products, food additives, and alcohol, while thoughts encompass emotional and mental factors such as stress, anxiety, and depression.

Chiropractic Approach to Headache Treatment

The same three Ts can contribute to subluxations in the spine, which chiropractors address by providing relief. Subluxations obstruct proper communication between the brain and the body. When a subluxation arises, one or more spinal vertebrae shift out of alignment, exerting stress or irritation on neighboring nerves, impeding the body's capacity to heal effectively.

Numerous studies have identified a correlation between chiropractic adjustments and a reduction in migraine and headache symptoms. A case study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine highlights a 52-year-old woman who had grappled with chronic migraines for several years. She typically endured an episode every month, each lasting approximately 15 hours. Following chiropractic spinal manipulative treatment (CMST), a.k.a. chiropractic adjustments, the patient reported zero migraines at a six-month follow-up.
