Headache & Migraine Relief
Woodgrove Pines Wellness Clinic sees patients in the Nanaimo, BC area who suffer from regular headaches or chronic migraines. Chiropractic care is an appealing option for headache and migraine relief because it does not involve the use of prescription medication. We know that when the body is out of alignment, it causes more problems down the road. Chiropractic care is a great way to rid yourself of the pain from these ailments.
Proper Headache & Migraine Treatment Considers the Root Cause
Despite the various causes of headaches, they are often not diagnosed correctly. The misunderstanding about the true root of the cause can leave sufferers feeling frustrated and unsure about what to do next when experiencing headaches and migraines. Potential root causes of headaches and migraines include:
- Hormonal fluctuations like pregnancy or menopause
- Inflammation due to injury
- Medical conditions such as arthritis where blood vessels become inflamed due to overuse
Muscles feel sore in the neck, shoulders, and back of the skull when they have been held in or used in awkward and unnatural periods repeatedly. Sometimes, pain is due to a previous injury and the body’s attempt to compensate for it. Modern chiropractic care has evolved over the decades and now includes gentle manipulations and tension-relieving methods.
Chiropractic Screenings Tell Us Where to Start
A proper chiropractic screening will tell us about your lifestyle, habits, exercise routines, recreational activities you participate in, and how out of alignment your spine is. Once this information is gathered, our chiropractor can tell you which treatment will be best for your situation. Regardless of the cause, chiropractic care can reduce both the frequency and intensity of your headaches and migraines.
Potential treatment options include targeted massage therapy, trigger-point therapy, relaxation massage, corrective exercises, electronic pulse therapy, spinal stretching, spinal decompression, spinal adjustments, and more. Our chiropractor will tell you which treatment or which combination of treatments is suitable for your situation.
