Pain Relief from Headaches through Chiropractic
Headaches can be hard to treat when you can't identify the cause. At Lakewood Ranch Chiropractic in Bradenton, Florida we will work with you to figure out why you have headaches and develop a treatment plan to help you heal from the pain. When stress, poor spinal alignment and inflammation are causing your headaches, chiropractic care can help you heal naturally without the use of prescription medication.
How A Chiropractor Treats Headaches and Migraines
A chiropractor uses a range of treatment options to work with a patient who has headaches. Gentle manipulation of the cervical spine can get the spine back into alignment. Massage can help ease the strain on muscles and tendons, while reducing stress. When blood flow is increased to the area, the tissue can heal more readily. Chiropractors also use traction techniques to improve disc space and reduce headache pain. Your chiropractor may also suggest stretching, exercises to strengthen your muscles and use ultrasound or hot and cold therapy.
Maintaining Headache and Migraine Relief
You may see a decrease in your headache pain after your first chiropractic visit. You will want to see a chiropractor several times a week in the beginning to maintain your relief. Over time, your visits will decrease to once a week, several times a month and then roughly once a month. If your symptoms return, you will want to see the chiropractor more often until they are under control again. How often you go to a chiropractor will be determined by your response to treatment.
