Mechanicsville Chiropractic and Headaches

Mechanicsville, Virginian — When many people in the Mechanicsville area think to visit a chiropractor they are typically suffering from back pain, yet your Mechanicsville chiropractor can sometimes offer you relief for other health symptoms such as headaches (HA).

For many Mechanicsville residents headaches are a common part of everyday life. Some headaches can signal a deficiency in your body that is keeping you from your optimal health levels. Chiropractic may be able to offer you advice or treatment that could help improve your overall health and wellness and reduce your suffering from headaches.

Chiropractors deal with assessing and treating your musculoskeletal system, which is the system of your body that gives you the ability to move using your muscles and bones. When your muscles, bones, and all the other little pieces of your back, such as your spine, are not in their proper places your health may be reduced and you may incur back pain.

While headaches can be caused by stress, toxic fumes, and alcohol consumption it is also possible that misalignments of the joints, muscles, tendons, and bones in your upper back and neck could be the cause of your headaches.  If someone has been through a trauma, like and auto accident, it is not uncommon to have problems with head pain and migraines (a post traumatic HA).  A very common cause of migraines and tension type HA is a subluxation in the neck (the cervical spine).  It is called a cervicogenic headache.

Regular chiropractic care is a drug free way to attempt to realign any misaligned aspects that may be causing headaches or pain to Mechanicsville residents through spinal adjustments, diet, exercise, and stress management etc. At Stover Chiropractic, P.C. we specialize in upper cervical chiropractic care.  More specifically, orthospinology or Grostic technique.

Every patient and headache problem is unique, so you should make sure to get a good diagnosis and treatment plan with which you are comfortable.
