Chiropractic treatment helps treat a variety of symptoms caused by injuries or other underlying conditions affecting the spine. Most commonly though, many people often seek chiropractic care after experiencing constant headaches. Headaches can be the result of a single or multiple injury or condition frequently focused on the cervical spine, or neck. With chiropractic adjustments, a chiropractor will work to gradually correct any spinal misalignments that could be causing the headaches. While many people might already have the knowledge to seek chiropractic treatment for these type of symptoms, many of these same people often don’t know the source of their headaches.  

Spending extended periods of time in front of the computer is a common cause for headaches. After about an hour of sitting at your computer, people often start to hunch over and slump their heads forward towards the screen, where the shoulders will begin to round. In time, the body begins to feel comfortable in this position rather than a normal, healthy posture. Chiropractic adjustments can help restore the flexibility and natural mobility of the spine in order for the body to find a better and healthier posture.

Also, too much stress and tension on the neck and shoulders is another common cause for headaches. Each individual carries their stress in different areas of the body. While for some people, tension can build up on the lower back, the majority of people build tension on their neck and shoulders. When people face stressful days, the first sign of tension reflects on the position of their shoulders. This position can become an unconscious reaction to stress where individuals constantly keep their shoulders elevated and the muscles surrounding the neck are frequently tense. Chiropractic adjustments can help relieve physical symptoms of stress, preventing them from turning into a chronic complication.

Finally, clenching the teeth at night and TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorders, are known as one of the biggest causes for headaches. Often though, people don’t realize that the jaw can be adjusted just like other parts of the body. There are muscles on the inside of the mouth that if massaged, these can relax and reduce the pain and tension in the jaw. Certain chiropractors particularly specialize in TMJ procedures.

There are many other causes for headaches that may also be treated with chiropractic adjustments but these are some of the most frequent causes that could be causing your head pain. With consistent chiropractic treatment, your headache symptoms could be greatly reduced and relieved.
