Identifying the Cause and Finding Relief

Headaches can be categorized into various types based on their underlying causes. Understanding your specific type of headache is crucial in developing a plan to combat its effects. In addition to pain, other symptoms may include mental fogginess, vision problems, and tech neck.

Here are the most common types we see in our practice:

  • Tension Headaches—these pains often result from muscle spasms and tightness in the back of the neck. The constriction of blood flow leads to pain and discomfort. Chiropractic care works exceptionally well for this type of headache. Our approach involves identifying the affected muscles, using heat and ice therapy, gentle soft tissue massage, stretching, traction, and specific spinal adjustments to alleviate tension and provide immediate relief.
  • Migraines—these intense headaches may be debilitating for some individuals. They often involve referred pain originating from the back of the neck and radiating up behind the eye or into the front part of the forehead. Additional symptoms may include light sensitivity, nausea, and visual and auditory distortions. Some patients may need to lie down in dark rooms until the symptoms recede, and others may require medication. Our comprehensive approach often helps reduce the occurrence and severity of these events.

Methods and Modalities

We use specific spinal adjustments to help align the cervical spine, reducing tension and restoring proper function. We may also use other modalities to promote muscle relaxation depending on the patient’s needs. Techniques such as heat therapy, ice therapy, soft tissue massage, and ultrasound help relax tense muscles, promote blood flow, and alleviate pain.

By incorporating spinal hygiene practices and targeted stretches into your daily routine, improvement in muscle flexibility, reduced tension, and minimizing the frequency and intensity of headaches may be seen.
