Experiencing head pain can limit your daily function and overall wellness by being debilitating and distracting. Although most people opt to use painkillers and other medications to minimize pain, they do not receive lasting relief. Fortunately, at Magnolia Wellness Center in Tallahassee, FL, we employ chiropractic care in handling headache & migraine pain that you are suffering from. With our chiropractic care, we provide you with effective and safer solutions that medications cannot provide.
For Tension Headaches
Tension migraines might result from tension within muscles due to extended tension with the head, shoulders, and neck. The chiropractic treatment we offer for tension headaches includes stress management, stretching, trigger point therapy, and spinal manipulation.
For Cervicogenic Headaches
A cervicogenic headache usually starts with one-sided pain, especially at the back of the head, and then spreads to the front part. It is generally accompanied by same-side arm or shoulder pain. At our practice, we have established that most patients experience cervicogenic pain that results from an underlying neck issue and might be triggered by an injury. We can help treat your headache utilizing various chiropractic treatment options.
Under this procedure, our chiropractors use a unique device or their hands to apply controlled pressure to a specific joint or muscle of the spine. In this case, our chiropractor will focus on the cervical spine when providing spinal manipulation.
In joint mobilization therapy, our professional chiropractors will passively move your joints to reduce pain or enhance your range of motion. When we use joint mobilization to treat headaches, we focus on the cervical spine.
Migraines are characterized by headaches and other symptoms, including nausea and dizziness. The chiropractic therapies that we use in treating migraines often include:
Multidisciplinary Care Intervention
We combine several techniques under the multidisciplinary approach, including dietary counseling, stress management, relaxation techniques, and physical therapy exercises. We use these techniques because they help reduce migraine disability, duration, frequency, and pain.
Trigger Point Therapy
It is also referred to as neuromuscular massage. When administering this therapy, we focus on the trigger points within the head, neck, shoulder, and back to help in relaxing muscles, relieving stress, and improve blood flow. In other words, trigger point therapy can help to ease the migraine symptoms by releasing pressure from compressed nerves, which send pain signals to the brain.
Acupuncture has been used to stimulate various systems in the body to trigger a healing response. This ancient practice has found its way into the modern era. It has been used to treat several different conditions including headaches. Acupuncture has been found to reduce the frequency of headaches and migraines.
