3 Reasons Chiropractic Care Is Best for Headaches


Is there anyone out there that hasn’t suffered through a headache? Headaches might be the simplest, most commonplace complaint in the world, but they have so many varying causes and different degrees of severity. It can often be difficult to understand the source of a headache and then what the best corresponding treatment should be. Most people turn to pain killers for relief, but chiropractic care, when delivered with the expertise of the doctors at Vitality Precision Chiropractic, can be an effective alternative, especially for addressing chronic and disruptive conditions like migraines and vertigo.


Most experts believe that the cause for most common headaches is tension in the neck muscles. This tension can occur from strain, stress, or sitting in one position for too long. Everyone who has experienced this type of strain knows that while most of the time these headaches are mild discomforts, sometimes they are genuinely disruptive to your day. At Vitality Precision Chiropractic, Dr. Thomas Madigan and Dr. Brendan Shanahan deliver expert care to their practice members looking for headache relief. Here are our top three reasons that chiropractic care is the best solution for headache relief.


1. Chiropractic Care Goes to the Source of the Issue

While medication can provide immediate relief, chiropractic adjustments focus on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system, which can help your body combat neck tension, leading to fewer headaches. Having your spine in alignment helps your nervous system function properly. When your nervous system is operating at optimal health, you feel the benefits.


2. Immediate, Short-Term, and Long-Term Relief

Chiropractic care has been proven as an effective and natural option to treat the source of headaches, but it is also a great choice for immediate, short-term, and long-term relief. When it comes to chronic tension headaches, studies have shown that weekly adjustments from a chiropractor not only brought relief in the short-term, but lasting relief even after the weekly adjustments had stopped. In the long term, there is no comparison—chiropractic care is far more effective than pain medication.


3. Benefits Beyond Just Pain Relief

Drugs for headaches typically only treat that one symptom and don’t give you any positive lingering or ripple effects. Because chiropractic adjustments are treating the source of pain, not just the symptom of pain, your whole body benefits from being in alignment, not just your head! In the case of chiropractic care versus medicine, the many side effects of chiropractic care are positive, and this certainly isn’t the case with medication.
