6 Chiropractic Techniques to Help Manage Headache Pain

Everyone has a headache from time to time, either from being tired, staring at a device too long, or other daily activities. However, when your headache just won’t go away, there is likely an underlying cause in the musculoskeletal system. Below, Dr. Monk and the team at Monk Chiropractic Clinic in Chickasha, OK, share just six ways that a chiropractor can help you find natural headache relief.


The cause of headaches is typically tied up in an issue with the musculoskeletal system. Most often, a misalignment in the neck or back is at the core. By restoring alignment to the neck and back through adjustments, the underlying cause is corrected.


Some chiropractors offer acupuncture, which has proven very effective for reducing or eliminating headaches. Thin needles are placed at very specific locations to address pressure points, release endorphins – the body’s natural painkillers – and stimulate nerves to reduce symptoms. It also helps to relieve stress, which is a common cause of headaches.

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy uses low levels of laser light to penetrate troubled areas. It helps relieve tension, muscle spasms, trigger points, and more while restoring blood flow and repairing cells. It also triggers the release of serotonin, which provides natural relief.

Therapeutic Exercise

Headaches often come from muscle tension, weakened neck muscles, or poor posture. Chiropractors can guide you through targeted stretching and strengthening movements that help address these issues, removing the cause of your pain for years to come.

Lifestyle Adjustments

Sometimes, it’s the choices or movements you make each day that cause or trigger your headaches. For example, poor posture, a poor sleeping position, or improper lifting techniques can all lead to herniated discs, pinched nerves, and headaches. Your chiropractor will recommend specific changes you can make in your daily life to reduce your headaches and improve your spinal health.

Nutritional Guidance

What you take into your body can either help or hurt you. There are many foods that provide natural relief by fighting inflammation, improving nerve function, and enhancing healing. On the other hand, there are many foods that can cause inflammation, trigger headaches, and impact everything down to your circulation. Chiropractors can guide you through what to eat more of and what to avoid, so you can fight and prevent headaches.
