Chiropractic Care for Seasonal Headaches

woman holding head with headacheDid you know that headaches are a common part of life—but that they aren’t actually normal? Many people (even some of our patients) get headaches regularly, be it a result of stress, related to food, eye strain or the weather.

We know what you’re thinking—and yes, we did say weather!

How Does Weather Affect Headaches?

While it can vary from person to person, weather changes can cause an imbalance in your brain chemicals, including serotonin levels—which play a big role in developing migraines and headaches.

Seasonal headaches and migraines are common for a number of reasons, including:

  • Sun glares
  • Extreme heat or cold
  • Bright sunlight
  • High humidity
  • Dry air
  • Windy or stormy weather
  • Barometric pressure changes—rises in pressure squeeze our bodies, which means fluids are displaced into different areas that cannot be compressed, like our skull, bones, and even teeth. When pressure drops, the fluids drain.

Try Chiropractic for Headaches

If you’re wondering if your headaches are triggered by weather events, give chiropractic adjustments a try. Chiropractic care helps to keep your spine properly aligned so that your body works exactly as it was designed to. It can also help reduce tension and inflammation brought on by weather changes.

In addition to chiropractic, staying hydrated, reducing stress in your life and choosing healthy lifestyle options are great ideas.
