Yes, You Can See a Chiropractor for Headaches

Written By Longview Chiropractic Center on May 21, 2021

Headache Treatment Dr. Gary Lipkin of Longview Chiropractic Center has helped countless patients in and around the Longview area achieve true relief from headaches. This is possible because most headaches are triggered by either a spinal, muscular or lifestyle habit, all of which a chiropractor can treat.

Chiropractic and Headaches

When it comes to headaches, many of them are due to tension. And without your knowing, you could have a lifestyle that creates tension, be it from poor posture, unhealthy workplace ergonomics, or other reasons. Headaches are often a signal that something needs to physically change. 

Headaches are also a sign that something’s going on internally that needs fixing. The good news is that headaches are right up our chiropractors’ alley. Spinal manipulation is highly effective at relieving tension headaches, along with those that originate from an issue in the neck.

A 2014 report in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics gathered evidence showing that chiropractic can treat both chronic and acute neck pain that triggers both headaches and migraines. Many forms of headaches stem from tension originating in the neck that is felt via headache and/or migraine.

Researchers in this 2017 article gathered 17 months worth of data from over 100 patients who underwent chiropractic for migraines. Data showed that patients experienced significantly shorter migraines by the end of the study.

This meta-analysis of six studies followed just under 700 migraine patients who experienced fewer migraine days and reduced symptom intensity through regular chiropractic care.

Making regular chiropractic care part of your routine is a great way to protect yourself from headaches. We have adjustments that specifically target tension, allowing your body to calm inflammation, increase blood flow, and loosen your muscles.
