Headaches can stem

While over-the-counter medications may provide temporary relief, an increasing number of people are turning to chiropractic care to provide a lasting solution.
Headaches can stem from various causes, including tension, dehydration, lack of sleep, and misalignments in the spine. Tension headaches, in particular, are often associated with muscle tightness in the neck and shoulders. Chiropractors, trained in the intricate relationship between the spine and the nervous system, work towards addressing the root causes of headaches rather than merely alleviating symptoms.

Chiropractors use manual adjustments

Realign the spine, ensuring optimal function of the nervous system. When the spine is misaligned, it can create tension in muscles and disrupt the normal flow of signals between the brain and the body. By correcting these misalignments, chiropractors aim to restore balance and relieve tension, which can be a key factor in headache relief.

Proper Spinal Alignment

Additionally, proper spinal alignment enhances blood flow, ensuring that the brain receives an adequate supply of oxygen and nutrients. This can play a crucial role in preventing vascular headaches.
On your first visit, we will do a thorough history, detailed examination, and x-rays to evaluate your spine. We will not do x-rays on pregnant women, and we will carefully consider whether x-rays are necessary for children. On your second visit, we will show you your x-rays and discuss the results of your examination in a report of findings.

Treatment visits

Treatment visits will always include an evaluation and adjustment by a chiropractor. We may also incorporate other therapeutic treatments such as ultrasound therapy, electrical muscle stimulation therapy, mechanical traction, spinal decompression traction, stretches and exercises, kinesiotaping, or bracing.
As we go through a course of treatment, we want to teach patients how to take care of their spine at home. We may discuss changes to your computer workstation, proper movement patterns when bending and lifting, sleeping positions, foods and supplements that can help build healthy bones, and more.
By realigning the spine and addressing underlying issues, chiropractic treatment can help patients return to full function without the need for pain medications and their potential side effects.
