However, combined with a headache or a migraine, clarity can be completely ruined. In fact, headaches and migraines can be really debilitating. While many Americans suffer from occasional headaches, experiencing frequent headaches can be extremely difficult. It can affect your sleep, work, and normal everyday activities.

How Can a Chiropractor Help My Headaches?
Headaches are certainly no joke. In fact, for many people, they can ruin your entire day. However, chiropractic treatment has shown great results for patients who suffer from headaches, specifically tension headaches and cervicogenic headaches. Studies have also shown that chiropractic treatment can decrease the intensity and frequency of migraines. A chiropractor is able to diagnose, treat, and manage headaches. There are many different treatment options that we offer, including:
- Manual therapy
- Soft tissue therapy
- Modalities (electrical stimulation, acupuncture, cupping therapy, and ultrasound)
- Lifestyle changes
- Referral and co-management when necessary
Headaches are never easy to deal with, and if experienced frequently, it is important to take them seriously. If you often suffer from headaches, have to take pain relievers, or if your headaches worsen, then it may be time to seek help from a chiropractor. Our chiropractor specializes in headache diagnosis, relief, and management. To learn more, feel free to contact our office today!
Types of Headaches
There are three common types of headaches, which include tension, migraine, and cervicogenic headaches.
Tension headaches: Tension headaches commonly present themselves as band-like tension around the head.
Migraines: Migraine headaches typically occur on one side of the head and are usually accompanied by nausea and/or sensitivity to sound and light.
Cervicogenic headaches: When it comes to cervicogenic headaches, the neck is usually the source; however, pain is often felt in the head and/or face as well.
If you suffer from any of the above, you can reach out to our team so our headache specialist in Los Angeles can properly diagnose, treat, and manage your symptoms. Contact us today to schedule a consultation!
