Headache and migraine pain can be caused by any number of events or health conditions and can easily disrupt your daily life. During your first evaluation at Structural Chiropractic, our chiropractor will try to uncover the potential cause of your pain and dysfunction. We will look for any health issue or physical event that is causing tension or pain. Once we know the root cause, we can begin to formulate a care plan to relieve it.
Headache and migraine pain are commonly caused by auto accidents, head injuries, stress, tension, diet and a variety of health conditions, such as subluxations, or stuck joints that impact your nerves. Many times, there are no visible signs that would allow you to see what is actually causing your pain. Our full body chiropractor will give you a complete physical examination from your head to your toes. This will uncover any signs and symptoms that might connect your headache or migraine pain to other areas of your body.
Stress and tension often go together to increase your risk of headache pain. A tension headache often feels like a tight band that has been placed around your head. This is often caused by the tightness of the muscles throughout the head, neck, and shoulders. Chiropractic adjustments, along with a variety of soft tissue work, such as massage, and practicing a variety of balancing techniques that relieve stress and tension can cause those muscles to relax and relieve your pain and discomfort. We also have the Erchonia XLR8 laser in our clinic, which also can assist in healing tissues that can be part of the cause of headaches and irritation to the nerves in the neck that may contribute to headaches. Low Level Light Therapy has many benefits, pain relief and bringing down inflammation are just two benefits!
Chiropractic care offers benefits for the treatment of headaches and migraines. By keeping the spinal column and neck in their natural alignment, the tension placed on the head and neck is diminished and will gradually reduce the risk of headaches and migraines. Scheduling an appointment with our full body chiropractor is the first step in effectively treating headaches and migraines due to stress, tension, and other causes.
