man touching temples with a headacheAt Continuum Chiropractic, one of the most common reasons we see patients in the practice is due to frequent headaches or migraines that they experience. Eventually, enough becomes enough, and they seek help.

As your partner in health, we want people to understand that while headaches are common, they aren’t normal, and can be indicative of a problem somewhere in your neck or spine.

Causes of Headaches

Headaches are often caused by a structural problem, meaning that there’s something out of alignment or moving incorrectly in your skull, neck, or back. In fact, a lot of tension headaches result from people having issues with the muscles and ligaments in their neck and back being overstretched, which results in pain elsewhere-like the head!

Other common causes include spinal bones that are out of alignment and even bones within your skull that don’t have proper movement.

Thankfully, gentle, focused chiropractic care has helped patients just like you find relief from headaches naturally.

What to Expect

If you’re ready to get help for your head or neck pain, we’re here for you. We begin the process by understanding exactly what’s going on in your body. This involves a neurological assessment and a structural assessment. Then, we’ll develop a plan that meets your specific goals and is entirely unique to your needs. With us, no two patients are the same, and we believe that you deserve focused, specific care. If you’re in agreement and ready to move forward, we’ll begin with your first adjustment, which may be in the spine or involve cranial work-or both.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my headache adjustment hurt?

No, we take pride in leaving our patients better than when they came in! This means that you’ll never leave in more pain. In fact, our adjustments are extremely gentle. Most patients feel relaxed and relieved after visiting us.

How soon will I see results?

This depends on how severe your problem is. Generally, pain is the last issue that appears, which means by the time it shows itself, the problem has already been developing in the body for days, weeks, or even years. We’ll provide you with a specific care plan designed to get you out of pain and into health as quickly as possible.

Can I prevent headaches?

Yes! There are things you can do to prevent headaches, including making sure your head is held in its proper position and not too far forward. You can do so by doing exercises to specifically strengthen your neck, which we can show you at the practice. We’ll also teach you gentle massage techniques to employ when a headache strikes.
