Just about everyone will experience a headache at some time in their lives, and most people will suffer from them multiple times. Headaches can range from mild to severe. The most common type is a tension headache, characterized by a dull, throbbing pain that can occur anywhere in the head and neck. Tension headaches are usually short-lived and can be caused by a combination of neck or back strain and stress. Migraine headaches are more serious, causing severe, often debilitating pain, disorientation and nausea, and heightened sensitivity to light and sound. They can last for hours or even days. The first thing most people do when they have a headache is reach for pain medication. But there is a better way. Chiropractic for headaches has been proven to be effective without the use of drugs or invasive techniques.
Chiropractic For Headaches In Palmdale, CA
Dewald Chiropractic has had great success treating chronic headaches in our patients using a variety of techniques. Because recurring headaches are often caused at least in part by a misalignment of the bones of the spine and neck, placing strain on muscles and nerves, chiropractic for headaches can greatly relieve or even eliminate the causes of the pain. It has been proven effective for all types of headaches, including cervicogenic, tension, sinus, hormone, migraine, and headaches caused by an injury. We begin by diagnosing the causes of your headaches, analyzing your body mechanics and posture, and asking you questions about your work and lifestyle to pinpoint contributing factors. Then we use gentle manipulation to correct the alignment of vertebrae that form the spine and neck, relieving the strain and tension placed on the muscles and nerves that misalignment causes. This can greatly reduce the frequency and intensity of your headaches.
Massage Therapy & Lifestyle Counseling
Chiropractic for headaches requires a holistic approach, treating the whole body and correcting the daily habits that contribute to recurring headaches. Therapeutic massage relieves the tension in your body and improves general circulation and blood flow to your head. We can also design special personalized exercises and relaxation techniques you can use anywhere to prevent or relieve your headaches. You’ll be advised about the types of food that can contribute to headaches, including coffee, alcohol, sugar, and salt, and about how incorrect postures habitually used at home or at work can bring on a headache. Small corrections in lifestyle can make a big difference. Chiropractic for headaches is very effective and doesn’t rely on potentially dangerous surgery or medications. It’s a safe, enjoyable, and affordable solution to your pain.
