Treatment for Headaches
When you have a headache, it is difficult to think clearly. The headache gets in the way of your day-to-day life where you constantly have to make decisions. Frequent headaches can affect your ability to sleep and definitely your ability to function properly at work. All in all, chronic headaches can be debilitating. At Edelson Wellness Center in Tampa, we treat headaches with quality chiropractic care.
Types of Chronic Headaches
The most common headaches people experience are migraine, tension, and cervicogenic headaches. A migraine headache usually rests on one side of the head. You may also experience sensitivity to light and sound, as well as feel nauseous. On the other hand, tension headaches can be described as tension-like pain that wraps around the head. When it comes to cervicogenic headaches, these stem from problems in the neck. All three types of headaches can be treated with chiropractic care. We will assess what is causing the headaches and then create an effective treatment plan.
Chiropractic Care for Headaches
When you contact us for chiropractic care for headaches, you can expect our chiropractor to find the underlying cause of your pain, reach a diagnosis, and then effectively treat the source. For example, a stiff neck may be the source of your pain. Another cause could be grinding your teeth at night. Some treatment options for headaches include:
- Chiropractic Adjustments: This is when the chiropractor manually adjusts your spine (sometimes he may use an adjusting tool). This gets to the cause of the headache.
- Soft tissue therapy: Our licensed massage therapists will work the soft tissue in your head, face, neck, and back.
- Therapies: We utilize several physio-therapies, such as Cold Laser, Vibratory Percussion, Dry Hydrotherapy (Hydrobed), as well as therapeutic massage which all help alleviate symptoms.
- Lifestyle management: Together, you and the chiropractor will assess your current lifestyle and make any changes that are needed for headache management. This includes diet and exercise.
