Common Causes of Headaches and Migraines

Although everyone struggling with headaches and migraines has a unique story about how they started and how they impact daily living, there are some commonalities under the surface that usually have to do with poor posture or injuries that lead to poor spinal alignment. It is so important to get a precise diagnosis from your chiropractor. Knowing the “why” behind the pain can help you get the correct treatment to finally get lasting, natural pain relief. The most common headache causes include:


Poor Posture

Do you often crane your neck down over your phone? This posture pulls neck muscles and vertebrae out of alignment, pinching nerves and causing headaches and migraines. Slouching at your desk, sleeping on the wrong pillow, etc. can also cause problems.


Any injury to the head or neck, like whiplash or a concussion, can lead to head pain. Whiplash is notorious for causing late-onset headaches and even migraines. Chiropractic care is especially helpful in resolving this injury.


Lack of Sleep

If you suffer from migraines, you know how important keeping a regular, high-quality sleep schedule is for avoiding episodes. Chiropractic care can help with this as well!


The classic tension headache is often triggered by stress that tenses the neck muscles, worsens posture and leads to pinched nerves and chemical imbalances that cause headaches and migraines.


Another classic migraine trigger is eating the wrong foods, but a poor diet can also cause other issues that lead to headaches and ill health too. Track what you eat and how you feel every day to see what foods might be making you feel bad.

What Should I Expect During My First Chiropractic Visit For Headaches?
During your initial visit at Best Life Chiropractic, we will conduct a thorough history intake and physical examination to pinpoint the root cause of your headaches. This may include assessing any neck pain and, if necessary, performing x-rays to further diagnose your condition.
What Types Of Headaches And Migraines Can Chiropractic Care Treat?
Our chiropractic care is effective against various types of headaches, including migraines, cluster headaches, cervicogenic, tension, sinus headaches, and those related to jaw pain.
Can Chiropractic Care Help With Tension Headaches And Cluster Headaches As Well?
Absolutely! Chiropractic care effectively addresses the root causes of tension and cluster headaches, not just the symptoms, providing lasting relief.
How Does Chiropractic Treatment Differ From Traditional Medical Treatments For Migraines?
Chiropractic care for the treatment of migraines treats the root cause of migraines, which often are related to upper cervical subluxations (misalignments). Correcting this, many patients have gotten long-lasting relief from migraines.

Dr. Palmes’ wife suffered from migraines for years and at times the migraines were so bad she would have to call the ambulance for help. Traditional medical treatments can help with the management of pain via medication. However, they often do not even do a physical exam to better diagnose the cause of the migraines.

After a few adjustments to the upper cervical spine, Dr. Palmes’ wife seldom gets migraines even to this day.

Can Chiropractic Adjustments Prevent Future Migraines?
Yes, regular chiropractic adjustments can help prevent the occurrence of future migraines by maintaining proper spinal alignment and nerve function.
Are There Lifestyle Changes That Can Enhance The Effectiveness Of Chiropractic Treatments For Headaches?
Integrating proper ergonomics at home and in the workplace can significantly enhance the effectiveness of chiropractic treatments in managing headaches.
How Often Should I Visit A Chiropractor For Migraine Management?
The frequency of visits varies depending on the individual and the severity of their condition. Your chiropractor at Best Life Chiropractic will tailor a treatment plan based on your specific needs.
