Treatment of Headaches and Migraines

At Discover Life Chiropractic in Tacoma, it is not uncommon for our patients to see us when nothing else can provide headache relief. If you or a loved one is experiencing serious or frequent headaches or migraines, we invite you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Hendrickson or Dr. Devin, our licensed Doctors of Chiropractic. Let’s get a better understanding of the kinds of headaches that chiropractic treatment can help.


Causes and Treatments

We have all suffered from headaches at one time or another. It is one of life’s most common health disorders. Headaches have a variety of causes, from occasional stress to tumors. Some of the more common causes of headaches that can be effectively treated by a chiropractor include the following:

Stress headaches: This pain can be triggered by the sort of tension that most of us experience daily regarding jobs, money, relationships, or a myriad of other causes. We can treat your stress headaches with soft tissue therapy and by prescribing stretching exercises.

Cervicogenic headaches: The root cause of this sort of headache emanates from the neck as the result of sudden impact accidents. Spinal manipulation can be helpful in this situation. Our chiropractors may also recommend and lead you through neck flexion exercises to stretch your muscles in the back, neck, and shoulders to relieve the pain.

Migraines: For many migraine sufferers, the condition is among the most painful and debilitating conditions they can experience. In addition to the intense pain, they may see flashing colors and feel nausea and dizziness, among other symptoms. Our chiropractors may use a neuromuscular massage to relieve the muscles in the back, neck, and shoulders to improve your blood flow and reduce stress. We may also offer ways of reducing the occurrence of migraines or to control the intensity.

At Discover Life Chiropractic, our chiropractors will address these and other causes of your chronic headaches or recommend alternative treatment. There is no reason to remain subjected to the pain of frequent headaches and migraines.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    I have been going to Discover Life Chiropractic for 5 years. I am an athlete who went in with low back pain and some knee issues. It did take time but to this day I do not have low back pain or knee pain as long as I am staying healthy with periodic adjustments. Dr. Dave knows his stuff and is attentive to concerns (if you are feeling something make sure you tell him). I feel so aligned and feel like I am functioning at a high level each day. If I can, I like to use Dr. Daves partnering doctor for extremity adjustments (feet, arms, legs) he is exceptional especially with those! Like with anything you have to be consistent, can't just go 3 times and expect to be healed. Hope this was helpful! Best, Alex

    So... I have had back pain all my life and neck pain from a car accident causing severe and frequent migraines. Other chiropractors just did a "quick fix" that lasted a couple days at most. This chiropractor, David, has practically eliminated my neck pain and migraines and my back pain had decreased tons. Now usually when I have pain it is because I have bad posture or I need to stretch or build up muscle to keep my spine in place. I understand he can only do so much but to be pain free you have to put in work also. WITH ALL THAT SAID, the pain has gone down from constant to occasional and from severe pain to mostly mild and we are still working on it. Would recommend the chiropractic service there to anyone.

    I have experienced fairly sever neck pain for the last few years. Have been to my doctor, had ultrasounds etc. Nothing was working. I started going to David at Discover life a few months ago as a last resort to deal with the pain and the difference is amazing even with just this short amount of time. He explains everything very clearly and even has me doing stretching and work while at home. His staff is great and always friendly when I come in. I would highly recommend Discover Life Chiropractic.
