Migraines and Headaches Q & A
Why should I seek chiropractic help for headaches and migraines?
Chronic headaches and migraines can interfere with your daily life. You’re diagnosed with chronic headaches if you experience them at least 15 days out of the month. Migraines characterized by intense head pain, light, and sound sensitivity, nausea, and disturbed vision can be scary and make it hard to function at work, at school, or at home. Over-the-counter medications may lessen the acute pain for a while, but chiropractic care can address and treat the root cause of the headaches.
Studies show that chiropractic adjustments and manual therapy can prevent migraines and reduce pain in sufferers. Comprehensive research published in 2011 showed that spinal manipulation is particularly beneficial to migraines and headaches caused by neck disorders. We will review your medical history and evaluate your response to his manipulations and adjustments to recommend a long-term therapy course for headache treatment.
What is a chiropractic adjustment?
Tickle Chiro uses chiropractic adjustments such as moving, stretching, and manipulating the spine to relieve trigger points that may be causing your headaches and associated discomfort. X-rays of the spine may guide the doctor in making your adjustments, but chiropractic treatment will not include drugs or surgery.
What other manual therapies does Dr. Tickle use to reduce headaches?
Manual therapy addresses the causes of tension and tightness that can trigger headaches. These therapies include massage, kneading the muscles, joint manipulation, and joint stabilization. Dr. Greg and Dr. Andrea Tickle uses cranial therapy with their hands, rather than tools or machines, to conduct manual therapy. We offer massage, mls laser therapy, to relieve tension and inflammation in the shoulders and neck.
