Types of HeadachesWe provide headache pain relief and management for different types of headaches.
Tension HeadachesTension headaches are quite common and are caused by muscle tension that is further triggered by tension in the shoulders, neck, and head. The use of the following therapies and techniques has been effective in managing this type of headache:
- Soft Tissue Therapy
- Stress management
- Low-load craniocervical mobilization
Cervicogenic HeadachesCervicogenic headaches often involve pain on a single side. The pain can begin at the back of the head before moving to the front. It can also have simultaneous arm or shoulder pain. We have found tremendous success with spinal manipulation in treating and managing this type of headache. The other techniques include joint mobilization and deep neck flexion exercises.
MigrainesThere are certain chiropractic therapies that have been effective in managing migraines. We often use the following therapies and techniques to help patients who have relied excessively on medications for years:
- Neuromuscular Massage: This massage therapy is focused on specific trigger points on the neck, back, head, and shoulder, improving blood flow, relaxing the muscles, and relieving stress.
- Multidisciplinary Care Intervention: This technique combines various therapies and methods including physical exercises, stress management, and relaxation techniques to manage the frequency, severity, and duration of the pain.
