Irritation and inflammation of the occipital nerves may be due to misalignment of the spine. Chiropractors can help correct spinal misalignments by gently manipulating the spine. These manipulations can help with any type of headache. Chiropractic care is a natural, non-invasive way to treat occipital neuralgia, either alone or in combination with other treatments.
Neurological chiropractic care is an excellent option for managing neuralgia pain because it reaches directly to the root of matter, the nerves. Spinal misalignments can cause nerve interference that can cause dysfunction of the body and affect different nerves in the body that can cause neuralgia. Grant of Greater Life Chiropractic can make gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to correct misalignments and restore nerve function, as well as improve the function of the entire central nervous system as a whole. Not only can this alleviate the various types of neuralgia, but it can also improve the health and well-being of the whole body for a better quality of life.
Occipital neuralgia results from irritation and damage to the occipital nerves that are compressed by the top of the spine. If someone injures their head, scalp, or neck, the vertebrae can move and press up against the occipital nerves. Chiropractors can help you find relief for occipital neuralgia by making sure that your spine no longer injures the nerves that cause it. Evidence suggests that chiropractic care, including spinal manipulation, improves migraine and cervicogenic headaches.
The type, frequency, dose, and duration of treatments should be based on guideline recommendations, clinical experience, and findings. Evidence for the use of spinal manipulation as an isolated intervention for patients with tension headache remains equivocal (.
