Headaches are linked to a variety of conditions and can vary in severity. Symptoms include but are not limited to: dull/aching head pain, pressure in the forehead or back of the head, muscle tenderness, vomiting, nausea, and sensitivity to light/sounds. About 95% of headaches are primary headaches (tension, migraine, or cluster headaches), and are associated with muscle tension and joint dysfunction in the neck. Some recent studies have shown that patients suffering from headaches and migraines may benefit from long term chiropractic care than drug therapy alone.
A physical exam will be performed at the office. Once evaluated, we will work to reduce your pain and improve your symptoms through a treatment plan consisting of chiropractic manipulation, modalities (ultrasound, electrical stimulation, spinal decompression), soft tissue techniques, and exercise. If needed, we are prepared to refer you for the proper diagnostic tests as well as to orthopedic specialists, neurologists, and pain specialists in the area. Make your appointment today!
