How Chiropractic Care Helps Headaches


There are many benefits to chiropractic adjustments. This article will cover the different types of headaches and how chiropractic care can help. Sinus headaches, cluster headaches, tension headaches, and migraines.

Sinus Headaches

Pressure around the eyes, cheeks, and forehead often caused by sinusitis. Most customers that visit chiropractors during a sinus infection to receive targeted treatment around the neck and brain stem to help drain their sinus passages.

Cluster Headaches

These are a series of relatively short but extremely painful headaches every day for weeks or months at a time. Chiropractors focus on improving basic body functions and the nervous system. Patients find relief through adjustments of the upper cervical joints (upper neck).

Tension Headaches

These are the most common type of headaches in adults normally caused by stress.  Spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustments improve spinal function and alleviate the stress on the system
