How A Cordova Chiropractor Alleviates Headaches Without Dangerous Drugs

By Elinor Hain

The average person is likely to suffer from headaches at some point in his or her life, as they are one of the most common afflictions. Usually the headache is not caused by any disease, as this is a very unusual situation, but several common triggers of headaches can be found. A Cordova chiropractor may offer relief for this widespread problem without using drugs.

Primary headaches are those which are not caused by disease, and account for over 90 percent of all headaches. A major cause of primary headaches is tension, especially in the neck area. Tension can affect the muscles and joints, and this in turn leads to the pain of headaches.

Several reasons why tension headaches are so common have to do with our modern lifestyle. Many people are mostly sedentary during the day, working at desks and looking at computer screens. Staying in this sort of fixed position can create stress in the neck and back. Tension also results from emotional stress due to the hectic and demanding lifestyles of today.

Taking drugs for headaches may provide temporary relief, but it does not address the underlying causes, so headaches can recur once the medication is stopped. Also, many pain relief formulas contain caffeine to enhance their effect. Once the medication is stopped, there can be rebound headaches due to having become habituated to the caffeine.

Some ways to avoid this type of headache include taking frequent breaks from sitting. Standing and stretching, and especially moving the neck and shoulders to ease stiffness, may prevent the tension buildup that may lead to a headache. Having ergonomically correct furniture, including chair and desk, can also be helpful in avoiding tension.

A doctor of chiropractic may perform spinal manipulations designed to ease the tension in the back and neck area. Studies have shown this method to be effective at alleviating headaches, and without the potential bad side effects of using pain medications. A Cordova chiropractor may provide advice on posture, nutrition, and other factors that will help reduce headaches and prevent their occurrence.
