Chiropractic treatments relieve the pain of various types of headaches. Rather than taking medicine, a consultation with a chiropractor provides solutions to the underlying cause of the pain. Headaches can be reduced in severity, frequency and duration under chiropractic care.


Speaking to an interviewer, Dr. R. Eric Sanders D.C. explained, “There are several different types of headaches that have been identified and categorized. Some of the best known headache categories are tension, migraine, cluster, and stress headaches.”

“The causes of headache are as widely varied as the types” he continues. “Tension headaches feel as if there is a band being tightened around the head and are often caused by stress. Allergies, sinus congestion, and infection can cause headache pain. Also, fatigue due to poor sleeping habits can bring on a headache. Migraine headaches are even more complicated, and more study is needed to determine what triggers effect the onset of the pain.”

Dr. R. Eric Sanders, states, “Our first step is to identify the type of headache and which factors might be involved in the onset of the pain and other symptoms.”

He continues, “Our services include a holistic chiropractic approach based on sound medical knowledge. In addition to treating headaches, we emphasize care for auto injuries, migraines, back pain, sciatica, neck pain, herniated discs, sports injuries, extremity injuries, pediatric and geriatric care. At Sanders Chiropractic and Wellness, we use the latest advancements in nutrition and therapy to help you meet your health care goals.”

A variety of techniques can help with the relief of headache pain, including nutritional counseling, exercise, posture training, and spinal adjustments. At Sanders Chiropractic and Wellness we create a custom treatment plan that takes all of these factors into consideration.


Adjustments of the spine play a significant role in alleviating headaches. Car accidents, poor posture, muscle stiffness, and spinal misalignment may all contribute to head pain, and research has indicated that the chiropractic model is being viewed more favorably to effectively address such forms of discomfort than other healthcare models.

The tension headache is most responsive to spinal adjustments. The adjustment reduces the pressure placed on the nerves when the vertebrae is out of alignment which decreases the symptoms associated with headaches.

A physical examination will be required to assess physical function and the presence of misalignment. A number of sessions may be required to ensure that full mobility is restored.

Dr. R. Eric Sanders works with the nervous and spinal system to facilitate the natural healing processes of the body. For those suffering from the debilitating effects that headaches can cause, it is necessary to seek care.
