How Chiropractic Care Can Treat Your Headaches

How Chiropractic Care Can Treat Your Headaches

It’s a Saturday and you’ve been looking forward to getting together with your friends. You’ve been planning it for weeks. You finally completed that huge project at work, and by some minor miracle, things have settled down at home, at least you hope they have.

As you’re heading to your car, you start to feel that all-too-familiar ache and pressure across your forehead. Oh no. Another headache. Not now. If this scenario sounds like a recurring theme in your life, you’re not alone. Headaches are one of the most common nervous system disorders globally. Remarkably, about 75% of people suffer from tension headaches.

But, what if you could not only effectively treat a headache but also make your body less likely to get them in the first place? Sound impossible? Think chiropractic care, says John Hunt, DC, a certified practitioner here at Chiropractic Health Care Center Of Glendora

The link between spinal alignment and overall health

The concept that you may be able to prevent a headache probably sounds more like wishful thinking than reality. But let’s start unpacking this topic by taking a deep dive into the origin of pain and illness in the body.

When your mind, body, and spirit are healthy and in balance, all the systems in your body work optimally and efficiently without pain. But when something is off and imbalanced somewhere in your body, it’s reflected in how well your body operates.

Undue stress and strain from this imbalance ultimately manifests as pain, disease, or illness. A key tenet of chiropractic care is that your overall health is largely dependent on the health of your spine, and specifically your spinal balance and alignment.

Here at Chiropractic Health Care Center Of Glendora, our practitioners are specially trained and certified to use an advanced level of corrective chiropractic care called the Ideal Spine protocol, also known as Chiropractic BioPhysics® or CBP.

This progressive technique is based on the belief that a healthy, balanced spine has a standard geometric shape and curvature. But when a patient is injured or experiences pain, optimal spinal alignment and posture are thrown off balance. Job No. 1 for treating the pain is to reset the spine to its ideal position.

Targeting headaches with chiropractic care

You can help reduce the occurrence and severity of headaches by getting regular chiropractic care. This is because chiropractic care can do the following things:

Restore spinal health

If you or someone you know suffers from frequent headaches, you know that traditional treatment is usually directed at relieving pain. It doesn’t usually get to the root of the problem.

Headache sufferers may ultimately feel like they’re on a seemingly endless cycle of trying over-the-counter medications and prescription drugs, and other treatment modalities, such as ice, rest, and heat, only to end up in the same place when another headache strikes.

With CBP, we’re able to resolve the pain by treating the spinal alignment and posture problems that are causing it. In short, chiropractic care can get to the root of the issue.

Restore nerve flow

Similarly, when CBP restores spinal alignment and proper posture, it sets in motion the free flow of nerve energy. Nerve energy, or more specifically, free flowing nerve energy, is a key component in how the spine connects and communicates with the systems throughout your body.

When your spine is out of balance, nerve energy gets blocked, ultimately causing dysfunction along the neural pain pathways. Through regular chiropractic care, we can restore and maintain healthy spine alignment, which can unblock and reset your nerve energy. 

Increase resilience

As if treating your headache pain by addressing the root of your problem weren’t enough, when we use CBP to realign your spine and reset proper nerve flow, another important benefit kicks in. It positively affects your body’s ability to heal. The next time you suffer a lapse in posture, your body will actually be more resilient, so it can minimize the onset of a headache or help prevent it altogether.
