Why Your Headaches Aren’t Going Away (And What You Can Do About It)

If you have headaches that won’t go away, then it is time to visit a knowledgeable and trusted chiropractor. Here are some of the best reasons to arrange a chiropractic appointment today.

Chiropractic techniques can help you relieve your pain without the use of medications or surgeries.

Reason 1: Improving the Condition of Your Spine

Your back pain may be a cause of your headaches. If the vertebrae are out of alignment, you may develop a serious headache. There are numerous reasons for having back pain, including:

  • Lifting something heavy
  • Excess weight on the abdominal zone
  • Poor posture while sitting, standing or walking
  • Wearing the wrong types of shoes
  • Wearing tight clothing that compresses the vertebrae

When you visit a chiropractor for your headaches, he or she can manipulate your back to adjust the vertebrae and discs to relieve the compression on the nerves in your spine.

Reason 2: Treating the Problems in Your Neck

If you suffer from cluster or migraine headaches, then your neck may have a problem. You might sit in front of a computer screen throughout the day, leading to inflammation in your neck’s sensitive joints and muscles. When your neck has inflammation, the pain can radiate into your shoulders, back, and head. A cluster headache often involves inflammation in the sinus cavity around the eyes, and if you have a migraine, then you can become dizzy or nauseated. With the right types of manipulation and treatments with massage, heat or cold therapies at a chiropractic office, you can have relief from your migraine or cluster headaches.

Reason 3: Understanding Dietary Plans

A poor dietary plan can lead to frequent headaches, and chiropractors understand the importance of nutrition. A chiropractor can analyze your daily menus to determine if there are foods or beverages that are causing your headaches. Here are some of the beverages and foods that a chiropractor might eliminate from your diet:

  • Salty snacks such as pretzels, potato chips, and pork rinds
  • Pickled foods such as sauerkraut, olives or pickles
  • Smoked meats such as ham or fish
  • Certain types of aged cheeses
  • Seeds and nuts
  • Dairy foods when you are allergic
  • Sugary beverages such as soft drinks
  • Alcohol such as red wine
  • Chocolate

A chiropractor can help you create a dietary plan that is designed for reducing headaches.

Reason 4: Relieving Your Menstrual Discomfort

Many women experience severe headaches during their menstrual cycle in addition to abdominal cramping and changes in their mood. The hormones in a female’s body fluctuate constantly, and this is what can lead to headaches each month. A chiropractor can provide chiropractic treatment that helps to eliminate abdominal pain and headaches from menstruation, but a woman can also learn more about regulating her hormone levels with hydration, better sleep habits and an improved daily diet.
