Chiropractic Care for Headaches
Chiropractors use tailored, specific adjustments to help alleviate symptoms of a headache.
Many people with headaches choose to consult with a chiropractor to address the contributing factors. There are many reasons that headaches might occur - including posture, lifestyle choices, injury and joint dysfunction.
Research suggests that chiropractic care, including manual therapy, can be effective in treating cervicogenic and tension headaches¹. Some evidence has also shown that chiropractic care can help decrease the intensity and frequency of migraines¹.
Our chiropractors are trained to assess and manage many types of headaches, and will be able to refer you for appropriate care if chiropractic care is not suitable for you.
