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.
