Headaches are very problematic in our society. Our Springfield chiropractic care for headaches treatment should go some way to helping though. Some 13% of cases overall in chiropractor’s offices are for headache relief. But can chiropractic care really help these sufferers? Let’s find out.
Canadian researchers set out to find the question to this answer back in 2011. They looked at many published studies to try and set forth standard recommendations and protocols for headache and migraine relief through chiropractic adjustments.
As there are many types of headache causes, their conclusions centered around cerviogenic (those headaches caused by neck problems) which account for a great portion of headaches. They recommended spinal manipulations, physical therapies and even massage therapy to help control and reduce headaches. They also discovered that neck strengthening exercises, specifically for the deep flexor muscles in the neck was also beneficial.
While they discovered no benefits to other types of headaches, including tension type, one other study by Dutch researchers did report that manual therapy was beneficial in comparison to general practitioner type care.
The bottom line is that people are very different and have different issues and causes for headaches. If you have been suffering and have struggled to find answers and haven’t tried chiropractic treatment care for headaches before, why not try it. It has worked for many people in the past in helping reduce the burden of headaches. We ourselves have helped many to reduce their symptoms and return to a healthy life with a great reduction in frequency and pain intensity.
