Causes of Headaches

There are many different causes for headaches. Patients that suffer from chronic or constant migraine headaches will tell you they have had them for years and tried many different treatments without success. The horrible thing about all types of headaches is that they change your mood, your ability to be around family and friends, your work effectiveness and your enjoyment of daily activities.

The good news is most migraines and other headache types are mechanical in nature, which means King Chiropractic can usually help to reduce or eliminate this issue.

Chiropractic Care vs Medication

Other than chiropractic care, medication is the most common method of treatment for the first 7-10 days. However, long term use of over-the-counter pain medication can have disastrous effects on your liver and kidneys and do nothing to treat the underlying cause.

Since abnormal mechanics are present in nearly everyone that suffers from regular headaches (1 or more/month), it makes sense that spinal structure and surrounding soft tissue can effect peripheral blood vessels or nerves.

For this reason, chiropractic care is well known to have positive outcomes in the overall reduction in headache frequency and duration without the use of drugs or surgery. Our office has had great success in helping patients who suffer from chronic headaches get their lives back.
