At Tuttle Chiropractic, we see a lot of patients for Headaches. Just about everyone will be affected by headaches at some point and they can present themselves in multiple ways. Some patients report pain behind their eyes, or in a certain region of their head. Others complain of a pounding sensation inside their whole head, and some patients have even reported nausea as a result of their headache. The pain itself may be dull or sharp and may last for anywhere from a few minutes to a few days.
How does chiropractic care help with headaches?
We will give you a thorough examination and if your headache is found to be a chiropractic problem, we treat headaches with adjustments to dysfunctional joints in the thoracic spine and neck. When a joint doesn’t have proper motion it can irritate nerve. With headaches, the nerve irritation can be subtle and hard to tell that it is stemming from a structural problem in the neck.
What should I expect from a Chiropractic adjustment?
Adjustments to dysfunctional joints can be done in a multitude of ways. If the notion of having your neck “cracked” makes you nervous, don’t worry. We use joint mobilization techniques without the cracking and popping often associated with a chiropractic adjustment. If chronic headaches are something you suffer from, Chiropractic care could be a great option for you.
