Headache Relief

If you suffer from chronic headaches, Dr. Carlo Leon and the team at Central DuPage Chiropractic & Rehabilitation in Wheaton, IL, are here to help you find natural and lasting relief.

Headache Relief Through Chiropractic Care

Everyone experiences a headache from time to time. Stressful days, certain foods, dehydration, and similar factors can trigger them. However, for some people, headaches are a constant part of their lives. Unfortunately, this leaves many people relying on pain medication to get through their days.

In addition to the constant use of medication being hazardous to your health, there is another problem: the pain just keeps coming back. In this guide, Dr. Leon and the team at Central DuPage Chiropractic & Rehabilitation of Wheaton, IL, explain the reasons behind chronic headaches and how a chiropractor can help you find relief.

Understanding Headaches

Pain is an awful thing to deal with, but it’s actually natural. It’s the body’s way of saying that something isn’t right. Though a headache in the middle of your day might be a response to something you ate at lunch, if the pain is constant, it’s usually a sign of something much different. In many cases, it’s an issue in your neuromusculoskeletal system, such as:

  • Spinal misalignment
  • Compressed nerves
  • Herniated discs
  • Muscle tension

Such issues can come from a variety of things, including poor posture, heavy lifting, chronic stress, or an auto accident.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Chiropractors seek to determine the underlying source of your headache pain, as well as what caused that source. They will gather this information through a comprehensive musculoskeletal assessment, discussion with you, and – when necessary – testing such as X-rays. The results will determine how your treatment plan is designed.

For example, your chiropractor might discover that you have a misalignment and tension in the upper back. Through your discussion, they learn that you work from a desk each day and that you slouch through much of it.

Treatment in such a case would likely begin with an adjustment to correct the misalignment. It will likely also include massage therapy and other soft tissue techniques to address the tension. However, it won’t stop there.

Your chiropractor will also likely walk you through therapeutic exercises that will help correct your posture, making it more natural as you sit. Additionally, they’ll provide recommendations for improving your daily habits and – most likely – your workspace. Comprehensive treatment plans such as these help remove the source of pain and prevent it from returning.
