Chiropractic for Headaches
At some point, we all experience headaches. But when they become more frequent, they begin affecting the quality of your life. Some can range from bearable and controllable, while others will stop you in your tracks and keep you locked in a dark room for hours.
No matter the reason or the cause for your headache, there's one thing that remains the same - it’s difficult to function when you have one, and finding relief is essential. Everything about your day is disrupted or put on hold - you’re unable to focus and get your work completed.
The only things you can focus on are how badly it hurts and somehow getting relief because taking medicine every 4 hours just isn’t doing the trick. So if you’ve been getting frequent headaches and you’re looking for a natural treatment plan, give us a call.
The type of headache you have often determines the cause of the headache.
The most common symptoms of headaches are:
- Dull aching pain in the head and muscle aches
- Pressure or pain in the front, top, or sides of the head
- Irritability and inability to focus
- Sensitivity to light or noise
Tension headaches are the most common types of headaches. They are often caused by long hours in the same position, lack of sleep, poor posture, poor eating habits, dehydration, neck strains, stress, and hunger. These headaches are felt around your head and often described as a band squeezing your head. You may even have some soreness on your scalp.
Migraines are intense and usually accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to sound, smell, and lights. These headaches often send you to bed because they can be debilitating headaches that last for hours and sometimes for days. Unfortunately, no amount of pain medication is going to offer you relief.
Krapf Chiropractic Associates offers a variety of holistic treatments to help you get relief from your headaches and migraines without the use of medications.
How Does A Chiropractor Treat Headaches?
For the most part, most headaches occur because there is a misalignment in your spine, which is often the result of not supporting your head properly, for example, looking down at your phone and sitting in front of the computer. Stress and poor posture are the leading cause of misalignments. When there is a misalignment, it puts pressure on the nerves causing pain, discomfort, and headaches.
Chiropractic care is an effective natural treatment to the misalignment in your spine and helps to eliminate your headaches, so it doesn’t matter whether your suffering from stress headaches, migraines, tension headaches, or neck pain-related headaches relief is possible. But first, we’ll need to uncover the root cause of your headaches. This is an essential part of your treatment plan. Once we understand what’s triggering your headaches, we’ll better understand if it’s environmental, food allergies, or stress.
We want you to get the relief that you need so that you can begin living your life again.
I’ve developed a combination of knowledge and skill in chiropractic, nutrition, Chinese medicine, laser therapy, and craniosacral therapy that sets us apart from other chiropractors in our area—offering a variety of treatments that have been proven to be effective for treating most headaches. Some of these treatments include spinal adjustments, myofascial release therapy, craniosacral therapy, nutritional counseling, and laser therapy.
Myofascial release helps to give you relief from chronic migraines. It involves applying gentle pressure to the affected area for a little bit. This will help to relieve stress and give you relief.
Nutritional counseling will help to determine if there are certain foods that are triggering your headaches.
Laser therapy promotes the natural healing process in your body, helping you to find healing.
Craniosacral therapy is the manipulation of the joints in your skull, pelvis, and spine. The purpose is to release tension inside of your body and give you relief.
