Headaches are a common complaint in today’s fast-paced society, with nearly 80-90 percent of all adults reporting a history of headaches in their lifetimes.

And while the occasional headache may be bad, nearly one-half of women and one-third of men experience headache disorders — a group of ailments in which individuals suffer headaches on a frequent basis.

There are hundreds of different types of headaches. Some of the most common include:

  • Tension
  • Cervical (due to problems with the neck or spine)
  • Analgesic-induced
  • Migraine
  • Cluster

Because your head and neck are made up of so many tissues and structures that are sensitive to pain, anything that affects this area of your body — like tension and injury — can contribute to headaches.

Chiropractic + Acupuncture —The Natural Headache Treatment that Works

Chiropractors have an in-depth knowledge of the structures and makeup of your upper body, including the head, neck, and spine. 

And research confirms that chiropractic manipulation is useful in the treatment of headaches. 

Chiropractors’ knowledge allows them to successfully treat most types of headaches through slow, gentle manipulation of these structures that realign them for optimal functioning and without the use of drugs.

Having access to a drug-free method of controlling headache severity and frequency is useful, particularly since some headaches are brought on — or made worse — by the use of analgesics.

Rebound headaches — or those caused by using too much medication to control headaches — can be debilitating, and every effort should be made to find a natural headache treatment to avoid this disorder.

Acupuncture has a strong record of resolving headaches for many patients. It’s a simple, painless way to reduce headache intensity and frequency without resorting to drugs.
