Headache Treatment: Can Acupuncture and Chiropractic Care Help?

Written By Scottsdale Spinal Healthcare on March 30, 2018

Headache is a global epidemic. 

For people suffering from chronic headaches and migraines, life is a daily struggle.

You miss work, time with your family, and fun activities. You take pain medication to ease the symptoms, but the headaches just keep coming back.

If only there was another solution to headache treatment.

Here's the good news: chiropractic care and acupuncture can be very beneficial for treating migraines and headaches at the source.

Acupuncture and Chiropractic Care for Headache Treatment

According to the World Health Organization, half of the world experienced a headache within the last year.

30% of those individuals experienced a migraine while nearly 2% of the world population reports experiencing headaches at least 15 days each month.

That's a lot of people missing out on life due to headache pain.

What Causes Headaches?

Unfortunately, the pain won't go away unless you address the root causes. Many factors can cause headaches including

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Tension in the neck, back, and shoulders
  • Poor sleep habits
  • Poor posture
  • Lack of proper nutrition or physical activity

Most headaches aren't caused by one isolated factor, but rather a variety of factors. It's important to take a comprehensive approach when looking for the cause of your migraines or headaches.

How Acupuncture and Chiropractic Care Can Help

What's so great about acupuncture and chiropractic care?

They're safe, drug-free, and offer long-term solutions to headaches instead of masking symptoms.

Plus, chiropractic physicians and acupuncturists work with you to design a personalized treatment plan instead of a one-size-fits all solution.

Chiropractic adjustments can help realign your complex spine which relieves tension and supports nerve function and musculoskeletal health. Eastern medicine has utilized acupuncture for centuries to treat a broad range of conditions including headaches, tension, anxiety, and stress, with stunning results.

Western healthcare is starting to catch on. In fact, for some people, acupuncture and chiropractic can be just as effective for treating high blood pressure as beta blockers.
