Headaches & Migraines
Studies have shown chiropractic adjustments are an effective treatment for tension headaches, and headaches originating in the neck. Duke University’s Evidence Based practice Center found that spinal manipulation results in nearly instantaneous improvement for headache sufferers whose headaches come from tension in the neck. Another study in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that manipulation therapies are effective in the treatment of tension headaches. This study also reports that the beneficial effects of chiropractic treatments for headaches continue for up to four weeks after treatment.
The Chiropractic Health Clinic is the leading Chiropractor in Omaha for the spinal manipulative treatment of headaches- especially those most common headaches originating from tension in the neck.
Headaches are a very common condition in those who suffer from chiropractic problems. One of the major causes of headaches can stem from spinal misalignment in the neck when the vertebrae are not properly supporting the head. This can adversely affect nerves, muscles and even the circulation to the head. Research has indicated that the most common headache types usually respond very well to chiropractic care.
The overwhelming majority of even the most acute headache pain can be relieved when spinal subluxations, (joints in the spine that are out of their proper alignment, don't move the way they should and irritate the nerves), and problems in the jaw are corrected. The irritating effects that problems of these kinds have on the nerves, frequently result in headache pain and discomfort.
Our chiropractors will locate areas in the spine that aren't moving the way they should and take notice of unwanted spinal curves. They will assess the patient’s posture and ability to turn, bend, and perform other normal movements.
Our Omaha Chiropractors are well trained to recognize the many signs and symptoms of unusual problems that could require direct medical attention.
Our Omaha Chiropractors are mainly concerned with correcting any neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction causing your headaches. One of our Chiropractors will perform a spinal examination which will determine whether your symptoms can be effectively treated using chiropractic methods. The examination will ascertain whether your headache is caused or provoked by any misalignment of the vertebrae of the spine, which may create additional unwanted nerve interference.
Chiropractic care can often help prevent tension and irritation in both the neck and head. In some cases, adjustments will create instant relief for headache sufferers. Another study which followed 87 headache victims all treated with chiropractic spinal adjustments over a period of two-years revealed a clear improvement. Migraine headaches, a very common and sometimes debilitating condition, ceased altogether or were greatly improved in 85% of female subjects and 50% of male subjects. For those suffering from classical migraine symptoms, improvement occurred at a rate of 78% and 75% respectively.
