Chiropractic Care and Headaches
Headaches are caused by many things. Some are simply a matter of being hungry or dehydrated and can easily be remedied by eating or drinking. Others are of a more serious nature and can be debilitating and chronic. These are often caused by stress, tension or illness. Treatments abound, and some are proven helpful while others are only theoretical. Chiropractic Care through Active Release Technique (ART) is a very beneficial treatment.
Can Chiropractic Care Relieve Headaches?
Headaches caused by back, neck or joint pain can be treated with Chiropractic Care. Chiropractors focus their treatment of issues in the musculoskeletal and nervous system. This form of treatment for headaches is often overlooked. Musculoskeletal dysfunction of the neck is a common cause of headaches and chiropractic care is often an important step in relieving it.
This Is Where ART or Active Release Technique Comes In
One proven solution for relieving and preventing headaches is Active Release Technique known as ART. ART is a movement based massage routine that treats pain in the soft tissues of the body. These include muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. An experienced Fort Lee massage therapist can implement ART as part of a massage to relax muscles and relieve pain. Together Chiropractic Care and Active Release Technique are a good combination to treat your headache.
Spinal Alignment for Tension or Migraine Headaches
Tension headaches are often caused by a misalignment of the vertebrae in the upper spine. A remedy for tension headaches is spinal alignment, where a chiropractic adjustment realigns the upper back. Studies have shown that chiropractic care can also reduce the recurrence of migraine headaches. Our experienced Bergen County chiropractors utilize realignment techniques to relieve migraines and prevent their reappearance.
