Headache & Migraine Relief
Did you know that, after general neck and back pain, headaches and migraines are the most common types of ailments that your local Southern Jackson and Crockett County chiropractor treats? This is because a lot of chronic headaches and migraines are caused by mechanical neck problems and fixing neck problems is exactly what your chiropractor is skilled at doing. Below are a few of the common headache & migraine treatment techniques that your chiropractor at Durham Chiropractic Clinic might use to help you overcome chronic pain.
Soft Tissue Therapy
Generally, most chiropractor visits and adjustments will start with soft tissue therapy. Soft tissue therapy utilizes deep muscle massaging in order to relieve the patient of muscle tension, pain, strain, and stress. Your chiropractor will start by applying a soothing cream to your upper back and neck muscle and then apply finger pressure in order to trigger stimulation and offer pain relief.
Many types of headaches and migraines are caused by issues with spinal nerves. As such, a chiropractor may be able to offer swift relief from headaches and migraines by applying specialized chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments are specialized procedures in which your chiropractor will apply a quick yet controlled force to pinpointed spinal joints with either their hands or an instrument designed for this purpose. These special forced presses are applied in order to manipulate the spine back to its correct alignment and repair any underlying muscle discrepancies.
Posture Correction Stretches and Exercises
Poor posture and the slow-down of normal exercises following a traumatic event like a car accident or a sports injury are leading causes of headaches, migraines, and other types of neck, head, and back pain. The good news is that you can improve your posture and relieve pain by simply implementing a few key posture correction stretches and exercises. When you meet with your chiropractor, they will consider your current posture and speak with you about your current exercise and stretching regime.
Once they have an understanding of the causes of your headache, migraine, and/or back pain and have seen your current posture, they will then recommend a stretching and exercise routine for you. These posture correction exercises and stretches will help you correct your posture, strengthen your spinal cord, and ultimately provide relief of existing migraines and headaches as well as preventing them from returning.
