Chiropractic Headache Treatment - Is It Helpful?
If you suffer from chronic headaches or migraines, you’ve likely been searching desperately for a remedy.
While your doctor can prescribe pain medications, taking them is risky. You could develop a dependence or even an addiction. And the side effects can sometimes be worse than your original pain.
With chiropractic headache treatment in Atlanta and Sandy Springs, you can get fast, safe relief and 100% natural.
Figuring Out What Causes the Pain
When you visit Levinson Chiropractic, the first thing you’ll discuss with your Sandy Springs chiropractor is triggers. What contributes to your headache pain? Some common triggers:
- Bright lights
- Food sensitivities/allergies
- Spinal misalignment
From there, Dr. Levinson will discuss making some lifestyle and workplace adjustments. She’ll help you discover what foods to avoid while pointing you in the direction of nutrient-dense foods that can reduce pain and inflammation. Your Atlanta chiropractor can also recommend certain exercises and stretches to ease pain.
You might need to adjust the lighting or the ergonomics of your workspace at work or your home office.
How Does Chiropractic Headache Treatment Work?
Based on the evaluation and diagnostic testing, Dr. Levinson will provide you with a chiropractic headache treatment plan. Your plan can include spinal adjustments, as well as:
When any part of your spine is out of alignment, it creates tension throughout the body. Pain can result from that tension. That’s especially true when your cervical spine (neck) is out of alignment. The tension can cause nerve impingement and muscle tension, both of which can lead to excruciatingly painful headaches.
Gentle spinal adjustments return the spine to its proper position, allowing muscles to relax and easing the pain of pinched nerves. If you still have pain, adding spinal decompression therapy and massage to your plan can further aid in the healing process.
