There are three main types of headaches, all of which you can relieve through chiropractic headache treatments.

  • 1. Cluster Headache: These are the most painful types of headaches because they can last for weeks and even months at a time. They can completely hinder an individual and make their daily tasks almost impossible. Our headache treatment can work on your neck area to relieve pressure and pain in the face and shoulder areas.

  • 2. Migraines: While these do not last quite as long as cluster headaches, migraines can be debilitating. While medication may provide quick relief, chiropractic treatment can help with long-term relief if you get migraines often. Many times migraine headaches have their origins in improper function of the cervical spine, or are what is called cervicogenic. This is why chiropractic treatment excels at getting to the cause of the problem.

  • 3. Tension Headaches: Perhaps the most common type of headache, the pain from tension headaches can be moderate to severe. With tension built up in your neck and shoulders, it is likely to result in frequent tension headaches. Our team of chiropractors and physical therapists help to relieve pinched nerves, relax muscles, and open up blood vessels to provide drug-free, lasting headache treatment.

Treating Headaches with Chiropractic Care in Albany, NY

Chiropractic care is important for those struggling with headaches. The chiropractors at our office specialize in headache treatments. When you schedule an appointment at our office, we will provide quality chiropractic care that is tailored to your needs. At the beginning of your appointment, we will ask you for a history of your headaches. This will help our chiropractor get a better understanding of the type of headache you’re struggling with, which will help to determine the best treatment option. Then, we will develop a headache treatment plan based on your needs. After a few visits, our chiropractor will determine if your condition is responding to the headache treatment. If not, we will adjust your headache treatment to find a more fitting method. In some cases, it can take several visits of proper chiropractic care to notice an improvement in the pain and frequency of your headaches.

  • Cluster headaches are generally rooted in the spine with trigeminal nerve issues. We provide spinal realignment services, which will properly align the nerve back into the correct position. This will allow for neurons to pass through the spine more effectively, which will improve the communication with the rest of your body.

  • We can provide neuromuscular massage therapy and multidisciplinary care intervention for migraine headaches. Our massage therapy will help your muscles relax, improve blood flow, and relieve stress. The multidisciplinary care will help to reduce the pain and frequency of migraines.

  • For tension headaches, we will focus on your neck with low-load craniocervical mobilization. Our chiropractor will apply gentle force during spinal manipulation. This method will relieve built-up pressure and stretch the neck muscles.

Everyone is unique and every headache is different, which is why it’s important to receive the right chiropractic care. The wrong headache treatment could cause negative effects on your body.
