Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches

Headaches are common but they aren’t normal.  At Fuhr Chiropractic, we often see patients who have headaches because the spinal bones in their upper neck are out of alignment.

Our chiropractor’s goal is to find the cause and origination of the headaches. Our thorough examination and use of the Activator Methods will help detect the miss alignments causing your headaches. If misalignments are present in your upper neck, you’re likely to benefit from gentle chiropractic care.

Misaligned bones in the neck can also cause reduced mobility of your neck, such as turning your head or bending it to the side. It also affects the nerves, muscles and even the blood supply to your head.

In conjunction with chiropractic care, patients are given simple, gentle exercises to help strengthen their muscles and hold the corrected alignment.

The Drug Culture and Headaches

The most common treatment for headaches is pain relieving drugs.  While they may give temporary relief, the cause of the headaches aren’t addressed. Some people find it necessary to use Advil or Tylenol as part of their daily routine.

Chiropractic care can fix the cause of the headaches and reduce or eliminate the need for pain relieving drugs.
