While most may think of back pain as the main reason to seek chiropractic treatment in Charlotte, headaches can also be treated successfully by a chiropractor.

This is good news for many people since headaches are something that plagues an estimated 90% of Americans.
Methods Used to Treat Headaches in Charlotte, NC
Spinal Manipulation -
One of the cornerstones of chiropractic care is spinal manipulation, and this method of treatment has worked very well with headaches that originate as neck pain and radiate into the head, as well as tension headaches. Various studies published in Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics showed that chiropractic care was beneficial in treating both migraines as well as acute and chronic neck pain.
Another way our chiropractor will help you to conquer headaches is by offering nutritional advice. Migraines are commonly triggered by dietary choices, such as having too much caffeine, alcohol, or food additives in a person's diet. At Weig Chiropractic, Dr. Toby Weig will evaluate your nutrition and make suggestions as to what types of changes might reduce the number of triggers and prevent headaches whenever possible. Supplements may also be offered, such as a B complex vitamin as part of the treatment plan.
Posture and Exercise Advice
While the food you put in your body can make a difference, the way you move (or don't move) can play a role in why you get headaches as well. Dr. Weig can evaluate both your casual posture and talk to you about what type of ergonomics are in place at your workplace to see if any adjustments need to be made in these areas that could possibly reduce the occurrence of headaches. He can also suggest exercises that can help improve circulation and reduce headache frequency as well.
Approximately 80% of people who get migraines name stress as one of their major triggers. At Weig Chiropractic, we'll go over stress management techniques and other lifestyle fixes that will help to prevent both acute and chronic migraines and other headache types.
