While many people experience headaches occasionally, chronic headaches and migraines can have a serious impact on your life and overall wellbeing. Chiropractic Medical Center is committed to treating the underlying cause of our patients’ headaches so they experience safe and effective pain relief. Often, headaches are caused by referred pain from other parts of the body, such as the neck or shoulders, so working with a healthcare professional who has been trained to diagnose the cause is important.
The most common sources of headaches and migraines include the following:
- hormonal changes;
- food allergies;
- blood sugar; and
- muscle tension.
Studies have shown that chiropractic care is effective at treating chronic headaches and migraines. Spinal manipulation is one treatment option for headaches caused by neck or shoulder pain as well as nerve irritation. In some cases, physiotherapy may also be recommended to treat headaches and migraines.
Headaches and migraines are treatable. For more information on how Chiropractic Medical Center can help, call 717-767-4151 today to schedule a FREE evaluation.
