Do You or Someone You Know Suffer from Headaches???

If you are among the millions who suffer from headaches regularly, you are undoubtedly familiar with the traditional methods that people use to treat them, including taking some type of over the counter medication that is supposed to eliminate the pain and reduce any associated swelling. There are many other types of treatment that you may have attempted as well, including taking pharmaceutical concoctions designed to treat pain. However, none of these solutions provide permanent relief that addresses the problem at the core.

In the past few decades, there have been an increasing number of patients seeking alternative forms of therapy for all types of conditions, including headaches. One form of treatment that is very promising for physical as well as other types of pain is in fact chiropractic and massage therapy.

These forms of alternative care have been used successfully for over a hundred years and have become a regular part of paramedical care. In fact, there is an increasing number of insurance providers that are increasing chiropractic and massage coverage because of its effectiveness.

On your initial visit, a review of previous health issues will be completed, including x-rays (if needed) to help determine what types of headache you are suffering from. In the case of headaches, determining a correct diagnosis is at times a daunting task as they can overlap in presentation.

Whether it is a migraine, tension, or at times cervico-genic headache; there is an excellent chance that you may have joint dysfunction/restriction in the cervical spine. This may be accompanied by muscles that are tight in the neck, shoulders and nearby areas. Pressure on the nerves may cause sharp stabbing pains or there may be a continual dull throb in the region. We will assess the area and then move forward with a realistic treatment plan.

If you need further help with your headaches or are ready to see how beneficial chiropractic/massage can be to your overall health, please give us a call so that you can schedule an appointment.
