How many times have you had to ignore a headache? Some people are so used to them that they don’t even realize they’ve had one until it goes away. Headaches don’t have to be attached to a serious illness to affect you, and some people have bad headaches frequently.
If you’re living with chronic headaches, especially if they’re severe, we can help you at Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center. Our chiropractic care team understands the effect that chronic headaches can have on your daily life.
There could be many reasons you’re experiencing chronic headaches. Some of them are linked to your lifestyle, including how much sleep you’re getting on a regular basis, how much alcohol you consume, and your stress levels.
Migraines are particularly disruptive, and they’re often accompanied by light and sound sensitivity as well as nausea. Our office offers several types of chiropractic therapy, and our team is equipped with training and know-how to help reduce the frequency and intensity of your chronic headaches so you can live a more comfortable life.
Chiropractors specialize in the spine, nervous system, and muscle systems, so helping you with your chronic headaches is an appointment away. One of our specialists will work with you to determine the type and duration of treatment that fits your needs.
Chiropractic specialists often perform spinal cord manipulation, also called spinal manipulation, to address chronic headaches. Your practitioner uses their hands to apply sudden pressure, or thrusts, on different areas of your spine. They may also use a tool to get you the results that you need.
This treatment is safe and noninvasive. Your provider knows how much pressure to apply, what angles to use, and in what order. Our specialists can tell you all about the technique they recommend for you and why it works.
When you come in for your appointment with us, your specialist guides you to a comfortable surface and instructs you on how to lie down, either on your back, your side, or your stomach. From there, our doctor utilizes one or several chiropractic techniques to reduce your pain.
After your session ends, we help you up, give you a few tips to help you care for yourself until your next appointment, and you’re free to leave. Our chiropractic treatments have no downtime, and you can return to work the same day as your appointment.
Doctors all over the country have succeeded in treating headaches by using chiropractic techniques, with spinal cord manipulation being the most common. We also offer Activator Methods Technique, an instrument-assisted practice that has been used to treat people living with frequent and painful headaches.
We’d love to sit down with you, and talk about your complete medical history, including anywhere in your neck or shoulders that’s affected by your chronic headache pain. If you’re ready for a new way to treat your chronic headaches, call us to schedule an appointment.
