Treating Headaches with Chiropractic

If you suffer from frequent headaches and think you have tried everything, Dr. Jim Kambeitz explains how chiropractic care can help relieve headache pain.

Most people think that headaches are normal – just a fact of life. The headache however is a symptom from the body saying that something is off, causing the headache.

When treating headaches Dr Jim starts with a scan. The first diagram produced is from the subluxation scan to look at muscular tension in the neck (cervical vertebrae) that may be causing headaches.  Additionally the scan looks at symmetry of the vertebrae and which direction they are being pulled.

After looking at scan results the Dr will palpate the vertebrae to check how C1 and C2 are lined up. If there is tenderness, it is an area to be worked on with an adjustment. After checking out the cervical vertebrae the Dr will also look for tension in the jaw. A deviation may be seen from the digital x-ray.

A chiropractic adjustment can relieve pressure from a nerve that is being pinched by improving the alignment of the vertebrae. The nerve will therefore fire correctly and release pressure from muscles.

Adjustments have helped many of our clients, young and old, with their headaches.  Contact Kambeitz Chiropractic Health & Wellness Center at 303-790-6000 if you’re needing care.
