Chiropractic Care for Migraines & headaches

A natural solution to help relieve and manage pain caused by migraines.

Understanding headaches and how routine chiropractic care can help

Types of Headaches

According to the International Headache Society, headaches impact almost 40 percent of the American population. Chronic headaches and migraines occur for a variety of reasons.

A frequent and overlooked cause of headaches is the malfunction of spinal bones in the neck and upper back. When bones of the spine lose their normal position or motion, sensitive nerves and blood vessels to the head can be affected. When spinal nerves and related tissues are stretched or irritated, they can produce throbbing headaches. 


Each year, millions of dollars are spent treating headaches and migraines with prescription drugs or over the counter painkillers. While these medications may provide relief in the short term, they are not addressing the underlying structural cause.


By performing spinal adjustments, chiropractors can work at the source of the problem, providing effective treatment for migraine headaches and other types of headaches. Chiropractic for headaches can help prevent the need for headache medications. Routine chiropractic care provides patients suffering from migraines and tension headaches with a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

If the spine moves out of position, it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. This pressure can result in many problems, including headaches. According to the American Chiropractic Association, spinal manipulation is an effective headache treatment option for many sufferers.


Safe and effective spinal adjustments can realign the spinal discs in your upper back and spine for relief from headaches and migraines. Using the targeted methodology, we adjust the alignment of your spine to improve spinal function and alleviate stress on the nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments allow nutrients to reach any damaged spinal discs you have, which helps improve acute and chronic neck pain and can reduce the number of headaches you’ll experience.
