Headaches are certainly inconvenient and can cause mild to severe pain or discomfort that makes it difficult to get through the day, particularly for individuals dealing with migraines. Depending on the severity of a headache, pain relief medications are not always completely effective. Chiropractic treatment is an effective method for alleviating headache pain for patients struggling with chronic headaches or migraines. At Shaw Chiropractic Center in Richmond VA, chiropractic headache treatment options can be discussed with Dr. Scott Shaw.

How Chiropractic Treatments Can Help

Many effective chiropractic techniques can be utilized in the treatment of chronic headaches, tension headaches, and migraines. Some of the Richmond headache treatment methods practiced at our office include:

  • Relaxation training
  • Spinal manipulation
  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Ergonomic recommendations
  • Exercises for improving posture
  • Acupuncture

Muscle tension and joint inflammation in the neck and upper back often occur in conjunction with headaches. Minimizing tension and inflammation can help alleviate headache pain, as well as potentially reduce or prevent future headaches. One way to relieve tension in these areas and provide Richmond headache treatment is by performing chiropractic adjustments or spinal manipulation.

Other ways to minimize or resolve the inflammation and tension that can lead to headaches include relaxation training, exercises to improve posture, and the use of ergonomic equipment. Acupuncture can also be helpful. With this method, fine needles are used to stimulate the immune and circulatory systems, which can potentially provide relief from headaches and migraines. Our skilled chiropractor can recommend specific treatment options for treating your headaches to help you achieve long-lasting relief.

Chronic headaches, tension headaches, and migraines can all interfere with the ability to complete important tasks and can affect your quality of life. Chiropractic treatment can reduce muscle tension and joint inflammation and provide headache relief.
