Headaches Q & A

What causes headaches?

Stress, dehydration, and lack of sleep are a few of the many causes for headaches. There’s often a misalignment in the spine putting pressure on the brain stem if you suffer from chronic headaches.

Trauma, bad posture, or texting can cause a spinal misalignment that leads to migraine headaches. Since traditional headache and migraine medications do nothing to correct this pressure, they only mask the symptoms of your problem.

Can you prevent headaches?

Not all headaches are preventable. Some suggestions Dr. Jochen and his team offer to reduce headache severity and frequency are:

  • Move often, especially if your job requires sitting or standing in one position for a prolonged period
  • Take a five-minute break to move your body at least once every 60 minutes
  • Stretch your neck through its full range of motion
  • Begin a daily low-impact exercise routine
  • Avoid teeth clenching; this can aggravate tension headaches
  • Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration

How does a chiropractor help with headaches?

The chiropractors at the Jochen Chiropractic and Wellness Center offer a range of services to eliminate your migraine headaches. They begin by checking the atlas, the first cervical vertebra under the skull, where 75 trillion nerve fibers thread through the top of your spine and into the brain.

If your doctor finds misalignment in this area, they’ll painlessly adjust the vertebrae to reduce the brain stem compression. These adjustments bring instant relief if this is the cause of your headaches.

Your chiropractor may recommend these treatments in addition to the adjustment:

  • Acupuncture
  • At-home exercises
  • Cold laser treatment
  • Ergonomic changes to your workplace
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Massage therapy
