Managing Your Headaches with Chiropractic Treatment

If you suffer from headaches, whether they are chronic or occasional, you are not alone. Hundreds of Seminole residents suffer from the same daily pain, and they are all looking for relief. Unfortunately, even though this is an issue that plagues millions of Americans, there is no cure except for taking pain relief pills, sometimes more than once a day. Looking for a natural, lasting relief, more and more people are turning to chiropractic treatment. At Coastal Chiropractic, we are able to help our patients enjoy a life with less pain, thanks to our gentle adjustments and massages.

What Causes Headaches?

Many Seminole residents are unaware of this, but there are actually a few different types of headaches, each with a different cause. Some of the more common ones include:

  1. Migraines. These originate from a complicated relationship between hormones and the nervous system, and often will have warning symptoms like dizziness and nausea.
  2. Cervical Origin. This pain will be caused by disruptions in the cervical spine (neck), including muscle spasms and subluxations.
  3. Tension. These are most commonly caused by soft tissues in the neck becoming inflamed and then developing into knots.
  4. Organic pain. These are caused by a variety of things including sinus pressure, hangovers, pregnancy, and caffeine withdrawal.

How Does Chiropractic Treatment Help?

When you are looking for a drug free approach to headache relief, chiropractic treatment should be your first choice. At Coastal Chiropractic in Seminole, Dr. Rogers is specially trained to treat subluxations in the spine, muscle spasms, tissue inflammation, and more. In addition, massage helps to relax tense muscles and promote blood and oxygen flow to damaged areas, which can often help ease or even erase headache pain.

An important aspect of chiropractic treatment is regular visits; just as you have to go back for regular teeth cleanings or annual appointments with your GP, your spine will need to be checked and adjusted more than once to continue without discomfort. However, we can help you make lifestyle changes that may help to decrease your likelihood for pain.
