Treatment for Headaches and Migraines
Our office uses diversified chiropractic techniques to treat certain headaches. We use a combination of chiropractic maneuvers on different parts of the body, spine, neck, arms, and legs. This therapy helps realign joints that are out of place causing pain and headaches. Spinal manipulation is effective for neck-related headaches using a variety of hands-on techniques that adjust the neck, back, arms, legs, and spine. We can design special corrective exercises for you to perform at home that can ease the pain of muscles, tendons, and bones.
Migraine headache therapy often combines chiropractic care, massage, and some form of nutritional counseling. Certain foods can easily trigger a migraine or headache depending on the patient. They are caffeine, sugar, alcohol, chocolate, salt, cured meats, aged cheeses, fermented foods, and very cold foods. Our chiropractors can design a diet that will help you avoid these foods and include ones that do not aggravate migraines. The diet may include vegetables, water, brown rice, grass-fed meats, cooked fruits, natural sweeteners, and whole-grain breads.
Massage therapy can help with any kind of headache by relaxing tension in the body. It improves circulation, reduces pain, and increases blood flow to the head. We offer several treatments that help with chronic pain. Often physical exercise and relaxation techniques help patients manage pain and reduce the number of headaches they have. Different types of headaches can be treated with combinations of chiropractic therapy, exercises, massage, and nutritional counseling. We customize our treatments to be unique to you.
