Although a headache is rarely considered something that is life threatening, that doesn’t mean that having consistent headaches is something that most people want to deal with. In truth, continual headaches or migraines can be a detriment to a person’s overall quality of life.

Having multiple headaches a week, or even per day, can affect the way that a patient goes through even the simplest of tasks. It may be difficult to concentrate at work without needing to rest for a period of time.

Headaches could also result in patients missing out on things in their personal life, only because they don’t have the energy and their head is always pounding. There is a long list of things that a headache can limit people from doing, which is why Dr. Joshua D. Bly and North Pinellas Spine & Joint want to offer their patients headache relief treatments that work.

Cranial Therapy

This technique is not utilized by most Chiropractors because they have not been trained to perform it. This technique analyzes the nerve health and flow of cerebro-spinal fluid from the brain to the spine, and makes adjustments to improve this flow.

During this process the practitioner may palpate the skull to make adjustments to the actual cranial bones, while simultaneously “pumping” various vertebrae to remove blockages that could interfere with cerebro-spinal fluid flow. Dr. Bly has treated all of his patients that suffer from headaches with this technique and it has worked wonders for our patients with headaches whether they are stress related, tension or migraines.

Never Take A Pill Again

The first thing that many patients do when they have a headache is reach into their medicine cabinet for a magic pill that can stop the pain.

However, most of these medications can wreak havoc on the liver and stomach, while they only mask the pain of the headache. Instead, patients should consider chiropractic treatments as a way to find the underlying problems that are causing headaches.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help Relieve Headaches?

Upon first arriving at a chiropractic care center, a certified specialist can perform a series of tests to help determine what the cause of a patient’s headaches may be. If the patient has a misalignment with their spine, this could be the reason that headaches are so prevalent and continually reoccurring. When it comes to issues with the spine, this is typically the result of unnecessary tension or irritation in the head and neck.

As this pressure continues to build in the body, nerves could be interfered with, resulting in consistent headaches on a regular basis. Because no two patients are the same, each deserves their own special care and treatment to determine the best way to stop headaches. With the right chiropractor, patients can free themselves of the pain that comes with headaches and migraines.

What Other Options Are Available For Headache Relief Treatment?

Chiropractic care is one of the best ways that patients can work to alleviate pain that they have from headaches. However, there are also other options that can be considered as well. Some patients find that massages are a great way to relax, which can also have beneficial results when it comes to relieving stress that may be the cause of headaches.

It’s important to remember that if a treatment option doesn’t work immediately, patients should continue to try and resolve the issues that they have with headaches. Even if it takes a while to determine the best solution for relieving headaches, finding the cure for headache relief will be worth the time investment that is initially put in.

Will Chiropractic Care Help With Headache Relief Immediately?

For every patient that seeks out chiropractic care, there are equally as many different scenarios that can take place. In some cases, patients will notice relief from their headaches almost immediately. For others, it may require a few chiropractic sessions before pain subsides and they can get on to living a normal life.

No matter the immediate results, patients should keep in mind that it may also take future visits to the chiropractor in order to avoid headaches from coming back.

How Long Should A Patient Wait Before Seeking Headache Relief Treatment?

As mentioned earlier, headaches are rarely life threatening. However, patients should consider seeking out help sooner than later for headache relief treatment. The longer a patient waits, the more that their life will be affected from headache pain and tension. Instead, finding a chiropractic care specialist can begin the process of working towards a healthier and more comfortable lifestyle.

If patients are experiencing pain from headaches and want to relieve their symptoms before visiting a chiropractor, there are a few things they can do. This includes:


Turning off the lights to avoid sensitivity.


Applying heat to the neck and head to relax the muscles and alleviate pain.


Massaging neck muscles to try and reduce stress.
