If you are suffering with constant headaches or migraines, you should consider a chiropractic neck adjustment. This adjustment is a type of chiropractic treatment that helps to:
- Improve joint mobility in the neck
- Reduce muscle spasms
- Reduce muscle tension
- Increase range of motion
- Alleviates pressure
There are several major causes of headaches that can cause an individual to experience neck pain. Fortunately, a chiropractic neck adjustment can help patients feel better and experience a relief in their symptoms.
One of the main reasons for an increase in neck pain is simply becoming older. Degenerative disc, osteoarthritis and spinal stenosis are all diseases that a person can suffer with as they get older. However, a consistent chiropractic treatment such as a chiropractic neck adjustment can reduce the symptoms and improve a patient’s quality of life.
Stress related tasks that are a part of a person’s daily routine can also cause a person to have neck pain. Poor posture, stress, obesity, lifting objects, moving objects and a bad sleeping position can all contribute to mild to severe neck pain. These tasks and postures can cause poor alignment and cause the neck to become misaligned. As a result, a patient can begin to experience headaches.
Whiplash occurs often in car accidents and it is also a common cause for neck pain after an accident. This condition is caused when the head is forced in one direction and then quickly rebounds back into the position where it was originally. This quick motion injures the muscles and the tissues of the neck and also the head. Stiffness, pain, muscle tightness and headaches are common symptoms.
Why You Should Visit a Chiropractor When You Have Headaches
Many patients fail to see the importance of visiting a chiropractor for an occasional headache. However, if you are suffering with headaches on a frequent basis, a chiropractor will be able to diagnose you and determine what is causing the pain. Physical exams are routine before any treatments begin.
During a chiropractic neck adjustment, the chiropractor will apply pressure to the affected areas by hand. This pressure will help to improve mobility and range of motion in the neck. You may need several treatments to resolve your neck pain and headaches.
