Millions of people in the U.S. suffer from chronic headaches or migraines and don’t know where to begin when investigating treatment options. There are so many different causes of frequent headaches, from daily stress to residual effects of an old injury. Luckily, there are also many non-invasive, natural headache remedies available through chiropractic care!

If you’re suffering from chronic headaches or migraines that are affecting your ability to enjoy your regular daily activities, an experienced chiropractor at Optilux Wellness Center in New Kensington can help!

What Causes Chronic Headaches and Migraines? 

One of the most commonly reported conditions associated with chronic headaches and migraines is stress. Whether it’s at work or home (or both!), stressful situations can cause tension headaches that seem to last forever. Headaches can also be exacerbated by repetitive activities and poor posture, both symptoms of working at a computer or at a job where you’re on your feet all day.

Other possible causes for chronic headaches and migraines are diet, side effects of medication, accident or injury, and even poor sleep habits. Because there are so many possible causes for headaches, and because they can affect your life in such a profound way, it’s important to visit an expert for help in treating your headaches.

Chiropractic Care Treatments for Headaches

Your doctor of chiropractic can offer a number of non-invasive treatment options for chronic headaches. Spinal manipulation and massage therapy can ease tension in the joints and muscles of the neck, spine, and shoulders to support proper posture and lessen headaches. Your chiropractor may also suggest that you make ergonomic changes to your home or work environment, and do daily exercises and stretching to improve your posture. 

If your headaches are severe and occur daily, your doctor may recommend more intensive chiropractic care. This may include CBD oil, spinal decompression therapy, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment.
