If you suffer from frequent headaches or migraines, chiropractic treatment can provide the relief you need. There are various types of headaches that range from dull to throbbing to even debilitating. You can always take over-the-counter medication for your headaches, but this comes with long-term side effects. Chiropractic care is a better alternative because it is safe, effective, and non-invasive.
We provide a variety of techniques to treat headaches and migraines here at Dinuba Chiropractic in Dinuba, CA.
Spinal Manipulations and Chiropractic Adjustments
If you suffer from migraines, spinal manipulation may help reduce the frequency of your migraines and decrease the intensity of the pain. Spinal manipulation is great for relieving headaches. The technique involves manual adjustments performed to the joints in the back and neck. It is an effective treatment for chronic headaches caused by issues in the cervical spine.
Chiropractic adjustments can be combined with dry needling, ultrasound, and physical therapy to provide quick relief to the pain that patients may have been suffering from for years.
Acupuncture is a technique that involves the use of needles inserted into certain points of the body. Many patients experience a huge reduction in the frequency of their migraines after receiving treatments. Acupuncture can also prevent migraines from happening in the first place.
Chiropractors can combine acupuncture with other treatments for an even higher chance of success. You may find acupuncture is more effective than other remedies used to treat headaches, including prescription medication. Acupuncture works to relax the muscles, increase blood circulation, and help the body to release pain-relieving chemicals.
Lifestyle Changes and Education
In addition to physical chiropractic care treatments, your chiropractor can also offer nutritional tips to help manage chronic headaches and migraines. Your chiropractor may recommend dietary changes you can make and supplements you can take. As part of your treatment plan, you may also receive recommendations to help improve your posture, relaxation techniques, and workplace ergonomics. These tips are all designed to address muscle tension in your upper back and neck.
