Chiropractor in Cherry Hill Talks about Headaches

chiropractic care for headaches

Headaches are an unfortunate part of daily life for thousands and thousands of people. Some headaches only happen occasionally, some happen frequently, some are dull and throbbing and others are sharp and intense. Headaches have many different causes, but just about all of them cause some sort of disruption to your life. From a slight inability to concentrate to lying in a darkened room completely motionless, headaches can have a wide range of effects. Most of the time, a chiropractor in Cherry Hill will be able to ease your symptoms and help get your life back to normal when a headache strikes.

Common Triggers

Since there are several different types of headaches, it stands to reason that there are several triggers or causes that set them into motion. Some common triggers include bright lights, loud noises, certain foods, stress, blood sugar fluctuations, high blood pressure, exposure to chemicals, caffeine, neck tension or spinal misalignment. Headaches that are caused by neck tension are some of the most common and are triggered by poor posture, certain repetitive motions and other physical activities.

Headache Prevention Tips

A chiropractor in Cherry Hill has the ability to relieve most headaches, but following some proven prevention tips will also allow you to help yourself. Try switching positions every 30 minutes or so, no matter what you are doing. If you must remain in a fixed position, gently stretch your neck every 30 minutes to avoid bringing on a tension headache.

You should avoid clenching your teeth throughout the day. Many people do this unconsciously, but it can lead to headaches, so it is best to stop if you are doing it. If your exercise routine seems to cause headaches, you might want to switch to something with less impact to see if it makes a difference. There are many effective ways to exercise, so if you can find one that doesn’t give you a headache, go with it. Drinking water throughout the day also helps, as dehydration is a known headache trigger.

Spinal Manipulation Can Help

Since the cervical spine and head are so closely related, a chiropractors can use spinal manipulation to realign your vertebrae and reduce pressure that causes headaches. Many headaches are formed in the neck, and this type of treatment has been known to have positive results almost immediately. Other forms of headaches such as migraines may be a little more complex, but your chiropractor can still offer relief through customized chiropractic treatment. If you suffer from headaches, and can’t seem to find permanent relief through conventional medicine, call our chiropractic team at Dean Chiropractic & Pain Relief today and schedule an appointment.
