Our team at Greenacres Chiropractic Clinic in Spokane Valley understands that even the occasional headache can put a damper on your day. When your headaches become frequent or turn into migraines, you may not be able to carry on with your daily routine. Chiropractic care can reduce and eliminate headaches and migraines.
Diagnosing Headaches and Migraines
The first step to finding headache relief is to receive a diagnosis from a chiropractor. Chiropractors not only perform physical exams, but we also make sure you are making the proper lifestyle adjustments to see a change. This helps us pinpoint the cause, not just the symptoms.
A diagnosis is often based on assessing the symptoms that you have experienced. The common symptoms of a migraine include much more than just the headache. They also include:
- Abdominal pain
- Blurry vision
- Sound and scent sensitivity
If you are experiencing the symptoms of a migraine, treatment is available. Speak with Dr. Fitzpatrick to make sure the symptoms are related to migraines and not something more serious.
NUCCA Spinal Care for Migraine Relief
NUCCA, the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association, emphasizes the importance of dealing with headaches and migraines by addressing the root cause. The body is not always able to cope with the stress or tension it experiences, leading to pain in the spine and neck. This stress on your body can lead to migraines. Chiropractic care is gentle and takes pressure away from the stem of your brain. Proper alignment of your neck and back will reduce pressure in your body.
Treatment Options for Headaches & Migraines
Spinal manipulation is one method used to reduce headache pain and severity. Aligning your spine will reduce the pressure on your nervous system and upper cervical area. You may even notice pain relief in other parts of your body after an alignment. Furthermore, our chiropractor will provide lifestyle advice that can help with headache relief. This involves helpful exercises, posture corrections, and nutrition advice.
