Headaches can happen for a variety of reasons, whether it's your spine out of line, your neck out of whack, or your diet and sleep situation. Headaches can be a symptom of poor posture -- which can occur while you drive, while you're at work, and even while you're sitting at home.
Below, Barton Chiropractic goes over a few ways that our treatments benefit headaches.
Chiropractic has been shown to be effective in treating tension headaches, not to mention decrease the occurrence of migraines. One chiropractic adjustment can relieve neck and back problems and misalignment that might be contributing to your headache, too.
Drug-Free Pain Relief
Instead of using prescription medication for your headaches, chiropractic treatments provide drug-free pain relief for headaches, neck and backaches, not to mention body aches.
Anxiety and Insomnia Relief
Chiropractic adjustments help your body and mind relax, also providing anxiety and depression relief in the process. Chiropractic treatment will also help you achieve more restful sleep, which will help reduce certain types of headaches/symptoms.

Low back pain is one of the more common back problems a person might experience over the course of their life. Acute lower back pain can last anywhere from a couple of days to a few weeks while chronic lower back pain lasts over 3 months.
Below, Barton Chiropractic Clinic goes over a few ways to avoid lower back pain in order to stay in the game and stay healthy.
Stretch it Out
Stretching before you start your day and after your day comes to an end is a great way to bookend your days and give your body the tension relief it needs to start over fresh tomorrow. Stretching is good for your back, neck, legs, and joints when done properly.
Strengthen Your Back
Do low weight exercises that engage your core muscle groups and make sure that you're doing your part to strengthen your back muscles, which help protect your spine. When you strengthen your back you'll notice more resilience, and, conversely, you'll start to feel less good when you don't work out your back.
Visit the Chiropractor
Visiting your chiropractor periodically, even when you're feeling healthy and well, will provide you with countless health benefits while giving your body the proper maintenance from the wear and tear we go through each day.

Whiplash occurs when you experience a neck injury due to an incident that causes a rapid, jerky back-and-forth movement of the neck which results in pain and injury that can sometimes turn chronic. Whiplash commonly occurs when a person's car is hit from behind (termed a rear-end auto accident).
Treatment for whiplash may vary, but all treatments will have the end goal of controlling, reducing, or eliminating pain, not to mention restoring you back to your normal range of motion in order to get you back to being your active self.
Chiropractic can play a huge role in getting you back to health, even if you're experiencing chronic whiplash. Chiropractic treatment has been shown to be instrumental in providing drug-free pain relief. Treatments will also help improve your range of motion and boost flexibility as well, and, in many cases, you will have more range of motion than when you first came into the office.
If you'd like to learn more about how our treatments at Barton Chiropractic Clinic can help with whiplash, contact our office today.
