Headaches and migraines have various causes and can often be debilitating. Many who suffer from these conditions experience them due to tension, hormonal fluctuations, injury, inflammation of the body, medical conditions, hereditary predisposition, and triggers found in food. At Wellness Chiropractic Center in Watertown, WI, our chiropractor is an expert at treating these conditions.
Although there are many factors at play for headaches and migraines, tension is a primary cause of the pain. Tension accumulates when muscles in the back, neck, and shoulders hold stress. Overcompensation can also happen to muscles when the body is out of proper alignment.
Chiropractic care focuses on the musculoskeletal system and proper body alignment. Our chiropractor works with you from your first visit to locate the actual cause of your headaches or migraines.
We will conduct spinal screenings, physical exams, and nutritional screenings to get the bottom of what might be causing your headaches and migraines. When we gather this information, our chiropractor can then create a customized treatment plan to fix the cause of your headaches and migraines.
Spinal decompression involves putting you in a position where the discs in your spine can stretch out. They no longer have to support the surrounding areas, letting them relax. When your discs have a chance to relax, much of the tension you may have previously had tends to dissipate. This alleviates neck and head pain.
If your spine is not properly aligned, it can cause pain in many areas of the body. Our chiropractor will manually adjust the spine to move it back into place. This alleviates pain, pressure, and tension. This method works to prevent frequent migraines and headaches.
In order to continue treating headaches and migraines, our chiropractor may suggest corrective exercises. These stretching and strengthening exercises will relieve stiffness and prevent your body from tensing up, which often leads to headaches.
Nutritional and Lifestyle Advice
