Most people get a headache every now and then. But if you’re finding yourself reaching for a bottle of ibuprofen more often than not, you may be suffering from chronic headaches. With our professional chiropractic treatments at Summerside & South Centre Chiropractic Clinic in Edmonton, AB, you can treat your headaches naturally without relying on medications. 

What causes headaches? 

Scientific research has discovered over 300 direct causes of headaches. However, most headaches are the result of a few specific conditions. The primary sources of headaches are problems within the neck, muscle tension or spasms, post-traumatic (i.e. whiplash), and migraines. If the cause of your headaches is unidentified, your chiropractor can conduct a thorough evaluation and help you reach a diagnosis. 

What are the disadvantages of traditional headache treatments?

Many victims of chronic headaches turn to over-the-counter medications or pain relievers to treat their condition. Unfortunately, overusing these drugs can cause damage to the stomach lining, anxiety, insomnia, and more. Worrying about these potential problems can induce even more anxiety or stress, which will only make your headaches worse. In addition, these medications will not treat the source of your headaches, leaving you reliant on pain relievers as opposed to experiencing lasting relief. 

Why should I treat my headaches with chiropractic? 

Nearly 25% of headache sufferers choose to alleviate their pain with chiropractic treatments, and for good reason: chiropractic is an entirely natural, noninvasive treatment process that focuses on reducing tension and stress in the back or neck. The procedure also allows you to improve your posture and overall spinal function, thereby reducing the frequency of your headaches. With chiropractic, you don’t have to rely on artificial drugs to reduce your pain.
