The key to managing headache pain is to find the underlying cause. Once the cause is known, our chiropractor will create a treatment plan to address it effectively using chiropractic care. If headaches or migraines have become a part of your daily life, contact our team at Stillwell Family Chiropractic and Massage in Kent.
Causes of Headaches and Migraines
Headaches and migraines have many causes. Blunt force trauma, car accidents, slip and falls, tension, stress, and certain health conditions may result in different types of headache pain. When it comes to migraine pain, many triggers will set them off including bright lights, strong odors, and high levels of stress. Our chiropractor will perform a thorough physical evaluation to determine if there are any abnormalities or imbalances that may be causing your headaches.
Headaches and migraines can be treated even if the cause is unknown or cannot be corrected. Chiropractic care uses many treatment options to bring the body back into balance. After a thorough examination, our chiropractor will suggest a few treatments that can relieve your headache pain.
Some headaches are caused by muscle tension in the neck. If we determine that to be the case in your situation, we have several techniques at our disposal to provide effective pain relief. Deep tissue massage and chiropractic adjustments may be just what you need to relieve your pain. Making a few small lifestyle changes, such as regular exercise or eliminating sugar from your diet may also help. We will create a treatment plan to reduce or eliminate your headaches.
Finding the Solution
Chiropractic care works by addressing the source of the pain directly, and not merely the symptoms. Our chiropractor may ask you to keep a detailed journal for a few weeks to try and find any triggers that may be lead up to your headaches. By evaluating your daily habits and performing a few tests, our chiropractor will uncover the cause of your headaches and find a solution that works.
