At Schonhard Chiropractic, the Jackson Husband and Wife Chiropractic Team, we help Jackson residents everyday with headaches using gentle, precise chiropractic adjustments. 

In Jackson, MI at this moment, many are suffering with dull, pounding or throbbing headaches.  Some will miss work, while other Jackson residents will choose to mask the pain with a large amount of pain medication.  A stroll through one of the twenty-five pharmacies in Jackson reveals row after row of medications, all targeting headaches. 

As experienced chiropractors, we first take a detailed case history and try to identify a specific trigger or cause of the headaches.  We consider health history such as whiplash, hypertension, or medications. 

The next step is the chiropractic exam which focuses on a common cause of headaches - spinal misalignment.  Spinal misalignment stresses muscles, ligaments, nerves, and blood vessels.  Commonly with headache complaints, the patient relates shoulder, upper back, or neck tension or stiffness.  Palpation of these areas by a skilled chiropractor can reveal specific areas of taut and tender muscle fibers, or decreased range of motion in the spinal joints of the upper back and/or neck.   At Schonhard Chiropractic, this thorough chiropractic examination will determine if you are likely to benefit from chiropractic care.  If you are a good chiropractic candidate, specific x-rays may be taken to aid in your care.

Your care will consist of a series of chiropractic adjustments.  Headaches are commonly alleviated with gentle chiropractic adjustments at Schonhard Chiropractic, the Jackson Husband and Wife Chiropractic Team.
