How Chiropractic Offers an Effective Natural Headache Treatment
Headaches are one of the most common nervous system disorders globally.
In the United States, one-in-six people suffers from a migraine or debilitating headache at least once every three months. For women and indigenous people, severe headaches are even more common.
Frequent headaches can seriously impact your quality of life through physical pain, lost time with friends and family, and loss of income from missing work.
Fortunately, chiropractic care offers a non-invasive, effective, and completely natural headache treatment.
Targeting Your Headaches at Their Source
Your doctor at O’Keefe Chiropractic Center will start by conducting a thorough examination and learning about your headache history. X-rays are important to look for any damage in your cervical spine (neck) and your doctor may also order an MRI if it seems appropriate.
Although scientists have identified over 300 types of headaches, most are the result of tension or an imbalance in your central nervous system. Tense muscles and ligaments, pinched nerves, bulging discs, or damage in your neck can all lead to chronic headaches.
A comprehensive exam ensures that your doctor can develop a personalized treatment plan to target your headaches at their source.

- Non-surgical spinal decompression: Using a special table, your doctor will gradually stretch your spine to relieve pressure and tension between the vertebrae.
