Can chiropractic help cure my headaches?

There are many types and causes of headaches.  Regardless of the cause, if you have a headache, you want it to end.  Fast!

This has produced a huge market for medications that cover up the symptoms of headaches.  Powerful drugs can numb your nervous system so the pain doesn’t register.  While these approaches may be convenient, they cas cause adverse effects and kidney or liver damage.  Worse, they don’t correct the underlying cause of the headache.  Headache may be common in our society, but are not normal.

The most common form of headaches are tension headaches.  These are brought on by tense muscles of the head, neck and upper back.  Another cause of headaches can be vertebrae, spinal bones, that aren’t supporting your head properly.  They’re not moving right.  This can affect nerves, muscles and even the blood supply to your head.

Chiropractors locate areas of muscle and spine that aren’t working or moving correctly.  They notice spinal curves.  They look at your posture and your ability to turn and bend.  These and many other examinations can help determine if you are likely to benefit from chiropractic care.  If you  are a good chiropractic candidate, your care will consist of chiropractic adjustments here at Meridian Chiropractic.  These help normalize spinal curves, improve circultaion and reduce nerve irritation.  Many patients report fewer and less severe headaches.  While we cannot guarantee results, Meridian Chiropractic has a high success rate with patients who get headaches.  Read our testimonials on our website, or on Angie’s List in Indianapolis.
