Chiropractic Care Effectively Treats Headaches

Do you suffer from frequent headaches or migraines?  Those suffering may benefit from chiropractic care to relieve their pain.  Research shows that chiropractic care is effective in treating patients that suffer from headaches and migraines.

Birmingham chiropractor Dr. Scott Duca found significant success treating patients for headaches by using non-invasive pain management techniques such as chiropractic care.  “Tension headaches can strike without warning, leaving a patient feeling as if their head is trapped in a vice,” said Dr. Duca. “Research shows that tension headaches can be triggered by spasms of the RCPM muscle. These spams can be caused by a loss of the normal cervical curvature in the neck or pressure from a cervical spine misalignment. By correcting the curve and misalignment, we relieve pressure on the muscle and stop the spasms, thereby reducing the likelihood that a patient will develop recurring tension headaches.”

Although chiropractic care cannot eliminate all headaches, regular adjustments do help many patients maintain proper spinal alignment.  This may play a role in reducing the frequency and severity of headaches.  Chiropractic care focuses on healing the underlying causes of pain.
