3 Reasons to See a Chiropractor for Your Headaches, Chillicothe, Ohio

If you suffer from chronic headaches, including tension headaches and migraines, you've probably tried everything to get relief. Medications and home remedies can help, but too often they're ineffective or leave you with side effects that are worse than the headache. If you need a new approach to head and neck pain treatment, a chiropractor may be the answer. With over 45 years of experience, Dr. Dunn of Dunn Chiropractic & Rehab in Chillicothe, OH, has helped countless patients find relief through chiropractic treatment.

Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustment for Headaches

1. Reduce Pain

While the effects of chiropractic treatment on headaches have not been extensively studied, the initial results are promising. When seeking treatment for tension headaches that originate in the neck, many patients report quick or even immediate improvement. Meanwhile, patients who seek chiropractic treatment for migraines report a long-term decrease in pain intensity, according to a study published in J Headache Pain.

2. Decrease Frequency

The study participants also experienced fewer headaches after regular chiropractic treatment. In cases where headaches are caused by subluxation or active pressure points in the neck, chiropractic treatment may even be a way to relieve your headaches entirely. Chiropractic patients also benefit from instruction in posture and stretches which can help protect and loosen the muscles involved.

Some of the most commonly prescribed drugs for headaches, triptans, replace your migraine with fatigue, nausea, and brain fog—a small improvement over the original condition. While chiropractic treatment does occasionally have side effects like temporary discomfort and dizziness, in most cases, these effects range from mild to nonexistent. Additionally, triptans and other medications only address symptoms, while a chiropractor treats causes.

Don't let chronic headaches disrupt your life. A chiropractor’s approach can be the difference between debilitating pain and relief. For headache treatment that addresses causes instead of masking symptoms, call Dunn Chiropractic & Rehab at (740) 773-5858.
