Chiropractic For Headaches Lansing MI
The primary objective of chiropractic care is to find and reduce the underlying cause of your headache. Headaches are common, but they’re not normal.
Pain relievers of various types are the most common approach to headaches. In our practice, we take a more natural approach. Our objective is to find and reduce the underlying cause of a headache.
A common cause of headaches is from spinal bones in the neck that aren’t supporting the head properly. You might not notice your reduced ability to turn your head. But these subluxations affect nerves, muscles, and even the blood supply to your head.
Our thorough examination detects subluxation patterns that could be causing your headaches. If subluxations are present, you’re likely to benefit from chiropractic care.
Some of our patients are surprised to learn their headaches are being caused by problems in their lower back! The upper spine compensates, shifting the head off center, causing headaches.
While we can’t guarantee results, we have a high success rate with patients who get headaches. Give us a call. Let’s sit down and discuss your unique situation.

Cervical Range of Motion Test
Many headaches, neck problems and shoulder pain result from restricted neck motion – something we help people with every day. Here’s a simple test you conduct at home to see if you’re a good candidate for chiropractic care:
With the test subject comfortably seated and their eyes closed, have them tilt their head up and down several times, coming to a neutral resting position.
With their eyes still closed and without moving their shoulders, have them rotate their head fully to the left and hold for a few seconds.
With their eyes still closed and without moving their shoulders, have them rotate their head fully to the right and hold for a few seconds.
- Was the subject able to rotate their head less in one direction?
- Was motion restricted or was pain associated with turning in either direction?
- Did the subject hear any “popping” or grinding sounds?
If so, these are significant findings. Call Rassel-Daigneault Holistic Health to schedule a more thorough examination.
