Achieve headache relief with the help of chiropractic care in Richmond, VA.headaches

If you find yourself dealing with headaches rather regularly you may be frustrated with the toll it’s taking on your daily life. A headache, no matter how minor, can make it difficult to concentrate, especially if you work in front of a computer screen day in and day out. But did you know that a lot of headaches are tension headaches? Our Richmond, VA, chiropractor Dr. Scott Shaw is here to tell you more about where your headaches might be coming from and whether chiropractic care could help.

There are many factors that can trigger tension headaches including stress, poor sleep, bad posture and even lack of food. If you are someone who deals with headaches often you may want to keep a journal to help you pinpoint the root cause (or causes) for your tension headaches.

If avoiding the triggers isn’t always possible, or if your trigger is poor posture or neck tension, then our Richmond, VA, chiropractic specialist can certainly help. Bad posture and tension in the neck and shoulders are most common causes of frequent headaches, especially if you work at a desk or lead a sedentary lifestyle. Fortunately, regular chiropractic sessions involving spinal manipulation can provide you with immense relief from your symptoms.

Spinal manipulation involves applying manual pressure to areas of the spine to help adjust and realign the discs of the spine. This also involved stretching the head and neck and placing them into particular positions to improve flexibility and range of motion while bringing much-needed blood flow to the areas to facilitate faster healing to any damaged tissue.

Along with regular chiropractic sessions, our chiropractor may also recommend certain lifestyle changes or exercises to follow each and every day. For example, losing excess weight can take unnecessary pressure off of the spine and improve how the body functions as a whole. If sitting at a desk day in and day out is taking a toll on your body we can show you proper ergonomics to improve your posture at work to reduce the frequency of your headaches.

Our chiropractic specialist Dr. Shaw has undergone extensive training to provide you with the unique care and individualized chiropractic treatment plan you need to reduce tension in the neck and back, thereby reducing the severity and frequency of your headaches.

Don’t let frequent headaches dictate what you can and can’t do. Headache relief is just around the corner at our Richmond, VA, chiropractic practice. Call our office today and let us know how we can help you feel better.
