Headache Relief in Newark

woman with aching headAs one of the most common conditions affecting people of all ages and backgrounds, headaches can range from being mildly bothersome to highly debilitating. There are over 100 types, with tension being the most prevalent. Others include migraines, cluster, and cervicogenic, each with distinct causes and symptoms. Let’s take a close look at these:


Considered the most common type, a tension headache is often caused by stress, poor posture, or muscle strain. Chiropractic adjustments can help release muscle tension, restore blood flow, and improve neurological communication between the head and neck.


These headaches are typically severe and can be triggered by various factors, including blood flow issues and certain foods. Chiropractic adjustments, particularly in the neck, can help open up blood flow and provide relief. Acupuncture and nutrition have also shown positive results in treating migraines.


Known for their intense pain, cluster headaches can benefit from chiropractic care, which aims to improve overall neurological function and alleviate pain.


Originating from issues in the neck, these headaches can be effectively managed with chiropractic adjustments to the cervical spine.

Success Stories

Every day, we’re honored to help patients find relief from their discomfort. One particularly memorable story involves a woman who suffered from chronic headaches due to jaw clenching. After a course of six acupuncture sessions, she experienced significant relief, becoming headache-free by the third visit.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Chiropractic care offers a holistic approach to addressing headaches. By adjusting the cervical spine, chiropractors aim to reset the neurological communication between the brain and the spinal cord, improve blood flow, and release muscle tension. These adjustments can lead to quick and lasting relief. Maintaining proper spinal curvature through regular chiropractic visits can also help prevent headaches from recurring.

Additional Tips for Relief

For immediate relief at home, consider these tips:

  • Cool Compress: Place a cool, damp rag across your forehead while resting in a quiet, dark room.
  • Proper Pillow: Ensure you have a supportive pillow, especially if you get migraines.
  • Stress Management: Manage stress levels through relaxation techniques and regular exercise.
  • Hydration and Nutrition: Stay hydrated and maintain a balanced diet to prevent headaches triggered by dehydration or certain foods.

Find Natural Relief to Headaches

Debilitating head pain tends to affect more women than men and costs employers more than $13 billion per year in missed work days.

While many factors can contribute to headaches and migraines, diet and lifestyle factors play a huge role in causing pain. Many migraine triggers are food based. Anything from daily stress to dehydration can cause an average headache.

Sarah Bridge will evaluate every aspect of your life to identify diet and lifestyle-based triggers. She’ll then coach you on proper eating habits and any supplements you may need to work towards relieving pain. Medication is never a solution to pain.
