Practice a preventative headache treatment versus medicating with NSAIDs.
Headaches are a common cause of physical discomfort and pain, from mild tension and nerve headaches through to disabling migraines. While not all headaches are the result of spinal or musculoskeletal problems, acute injuries and poor posture can have a significant effect on how your brain experiences pain.
Chiropractic care can help to relieve pain from headaches. At Natural Health Houston, we are able to diagnose, treat, and manage headaches through spinal manipulations, soft tissue mobilization, and associated natural medicine services.
Your neck, back, and entire physical structure play an important role in how your brain modulates pain messages. Pain experienced in the head region is often associated with discomfort, numbness, and muscle tension, with most headaches falling into one of the following three categories:
– Tension headaches are generally experienced as a dull pain on both sides of the head
– Cervicogenic headaches are caused by a cervical spine disorder
– Migraines involve severe, one-sided pain that may be accompanied by nausea and vomiting
In order to treat headaches effectively, we assess each case on its own merits and develop a chiropractic care plan based on the specific symptoms experienced. While migraines don’t always have a specific cause, they can often be treated or managed effectively through chiropractic adjustments, postural improvements, and exercise programs. Here at Natural Health Houston, we understand the intricate connection between headaches and musculoskeletal problems. Contact us for help if you’re dealing with migraine headaches.
