Headaches can be debilitating and prevent you from completing everyday tasks. There are a variety of factors that can cause headaches, and in turn, several different ways to treat them. Chiropractic care is a natural, effective way to treat headaches. It is non-invasive and drug-free, so you don’t have to use pain medications, which often come with side effects. At Absolute Spine & Health in Suwanee, GA, our experts will diagnose and treat your headaches and migraines.
Causes and Symptoms of Headaches
There are a lot of different reasons why someone may be experiencing a headache. At times, it could be a sign of a medical issue that you're suffering from. Other times, it could be a habit of yours that is causing the headaches. For instance, not drinking enough water or being deficient in certain nutrients can cause headaches. Other headaches come from stress, muscle tension, poor posture, and more. Headaches can cause a variety of symptoms, including tension in the head, trouble sleeping, irritability, fatigue, pain with movement, and neck pain.
Headaches can be categorized into different types based on their causes. When you visit our chiropractor, we will look for the cause of your headache to determine the course of treatment. Some common headaches are tension headaches, sinus headaches, and cluster headaches.
Our experts will perform a physical exam and look at your lifestyle to determine the cause of your headaches. After a diagnosis, we will create a personalized treatment plan for you and your condition.
One method we use to treat headaches is spinal manipulation. By adjusting the spine and neck, we will alleviate pain and pressure. A misaligned spine can cause head pain and other issues.
Other methods we may use include spinal decompression, massage therapy, corrective exercises, and more. Our chiropractor will also educate you on how to avoid factors that aggravate headaches. We will help you improve your posture to ensure that your neck and shoulder muscles aren’t tight, which can cause headaches. We can also provide you with low-intensity stretches and exercises that can help you build up a resistance to those headaches that you're suffering from.
