Headache & Migraine Relief
Not only are headaches and migraines painful, but they can be extremely disruptive to your daily life. If you're experiencing chronic headaches or migraines, it's time to find a way to treat the issue. Chiropractic care is frequently recommended for headache treatment and managing migraines. If you are experiencing headaches or migraines, contact Discover Life Chiropractic in Tacoma to schedule an appointment with Dr. Hendrickson.
Chiropractic Care for Headaches and Migraines
It's easy to focus your attention on specific body parts, especially when you're in pain, but you should keep in mind that your whole body is connected. When you have pain in one area of your body, it can lead to pain in other areas of your body as well. In many cases, back or neck pain can be a trigger for migraines and headaches.
Chiropractic adjustments and spinal manipulation can help reduce neck pain, which makes these techniques effective for headache and migraine treatments. In addition, a chiropractor can correct the alignment of your spine to reduce the amount of stress that's being placed on your nervous system. This can reduce the amount of stress being placed on your body and lead to fewer headaches.
The Benefits of Posture Correction
Another issue that can contribute to headaches is your posture. If your head is always leaning forward, or if your back or shoulders are always slumped, you could be putting stress on your body. Bad posture is a common trigger for headaches and can also be a migraine trigger.
When you visit our chiropractor, Dr. Hendrickson can assess your posture and focus on posture correction. Whether you have a twisted pelvis or an arched back, we can use chiropractic adjustments to correct these issues. Our chiropractor can also recommend exercises that can strengthen your muscles and improve your posture.
Treating Headaches with Massage Therapy
Stress can also cause headaches and massage therapy is a way to keep your body relaxed. Head and neck trigger-point massage can release tension in your neck muscles, which can lead to fewer headaches. Discover Life Chiropractic offers both massage therapy and chiropractic services to reduce and eliminate your headaches.
