Headaches Q & A

When should I see a chiropractor about my headaches?

A headache describes pain in the head, of course, but not all headaches are alike. Some headaches are mild and no more than a temporary inconvenience; others may cause debilitating pain and affect you repeatedly. 

Almost everyone experiences a headache at some point in life. They can be stand-alone conditions or the result of underlying illnesses. You can also get headaches from caffeine use, hormone fluctuations, and certain medications. 

But if your headaches are disrupting your routine or affecting your quality of life, schedule a visit with the chiropractic experts at Joint Effort Chiropractic. Chiropractic care isn’t just for the back: neck adjustments can treat pain in many other areas of the body including the head and jaw. 

What are common headache types?

Some headaches are episodic, meaning you experience them every once in a while, and others are chronic and affect you consistently most days of the month. 

The team at Joint Effort Chiropractic treats many types of headache, including:

Tension headaches

Tension headaches involve dull aching and possibly throbbing pain all over the head. They’re often triggered by stress. 


Migraines, which can be chronic or episodic, are a severe variety of headache. In addition to head pain, they can cause light and sound sensitivity as well as nausea. If you have a migraine more than 15 days of the month, you may have a condition called chronic migraine. 

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction 

TMJ dysfunction isn’t a headache type per se, but it’s pain that occurs in the head. More specifically, it causes pain or stiffness in the joints attaching your mandible (lower jaw) to your skull. Joint Effort Chiropractic treats TMJ disorders as well as conventional headache types. 

How do chiropractors treat headaches?

The team at Joint Effort Chiropractic uses the latest techniques to treat headaches and can recommend care based on the type you’re experiencing. 

Personalized chiropractic care can reduce your symptoms and even prevent new headaches in the future. Chiropractic adjustments work by balancing the musculoskeletal system as a whole, which can relieve pain in the head and elsewhere in the body.

Your chiropractic care plan for headaches, migraines, or TMJ dysfunction might involve:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Active Release Techniques® (ART®)
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Massage therapy

If you can identify triggers that worsen your headache symptoms, avoiding them can be an integral part of your care plan at Joint Effort Chiropractic.
