Written By So Cal Chiropractic on June 26, 2020

man with headacheHeadaches are a debilitating condition affecting millions of people in the U.S. 

Sadly, many of those people suffer from chronic headaches and migraines that make it difficult, if not impossible, to live life normally. 

Thankfully, the Thayer Chiropractic Method can effectively treat patients who suffer from headaches in Costa Mesa. 

How Does the Thayer Chiropractic Method Treat Headaches? 

There are many causes of headaches, including: 

  • Skipped meals
  • Allergies/sensitivities to foods
  • Chemical allergies
  • Stress
  • Changes in sleep and insomnia
  • Alcohol
  • Poor posture
  • Blood clot
  • Sinus infection 

Trauma, poor posture, spinal abnormalities, and poor ergonomics are all common causes of spinal misalignment. 

The human head weighs over 10 pounds and your delicate neck needs to support it. If your cervical spine (neck) is out of alignment, it places tension on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the head and neck. The result is painful headaches. 

The Thayer Chiropractic Method focuses on the cervical spine, the theory being that if the vertebrae of your neck are in alignment, the rest of your spine – and therefore, your body – will remain in alignment. 

What You Can Expect at Your Appointment

Your Costa Mesa chiropractor, Dr. Ace Thayer, will start with reviewing your health history and taking some diagnostic x-rays. The x-rays will show where you’re out of alignment and how extensive the misalignment is. 

Based on the information he gathers from the x-rays, your health history, and a physical examination, he’ll recommend a course of treatment. 

Your treatment plan will include The Thayer Chiropractic Method. It can also include: 

  • Exercises/stretches to practice at home
  • Recommendations for better posture
  • Recommendations regarding how to improve workplace ergonomics
