How Chiropractors Help You Achieve Headache Relief
Providing great, lasting headache relief requires getting to the root cause. When you correct what’s triggering headaches, you reduce and often eliminate them. Our doctors at Belleview Spine and Wellness in Greenwood Village have years of experience in providing headache relief.
Chiropractic Care for Headaches
Our doctors do more than provide an adjustment when you come in suffering from chronic headaches. If they’re chronically occurring, then that means there’s something you’re chronically doing without realizing it to trigger them. Some of the most common triggers include poor posture, foods your body really doesn’t like, stress, poor sleep, eye strain from staring at a computer all day, and inflammation.
Poor posture causes headaches because of the strain it puts on your neck. Strain tightens your muscles, which then squeeze on nerves and restrict blood flow. We’ll evaluate your posture and help retrain your body to be nicer to your head while providing tips on how to make your workspace promote good posture.
If the timing’s right, chronic headaches can be triggered by food that contain various natural chemicals your body is sensitive to, like tyramine in aged cheeses and preservatives in a wide variety of processed foods. Your headaches could also be from caffeine withdrawals or dehydration as some foods and beverages dehydrate you.
If it’s poor sleep, your head hurts because your body wasn’t able to perform various repairs and maintenance procedures that occur only when you’re in deep, restorative sleep. We’ll evaluate potential reasons you’re not sleeping well. It could be as simple as your room being too bright or warm to something as serious as insomnia or sleep apnea.
Inflammation is another major culprit because of how it agitates nerves and can put pressure on blood vessels. We’ll check your inflammation levels and evaluate you for the root cause so we can help your body calm down.
