- Hormonal imbalances
- Auto accidents
The two most common types of headaches we see in our office include:
A cervicogenic headache is a type of headache that starts at the base of the neck and is described as a dull pain that radiates to the back of the head; it can even occasionally spread around the side or front of your head.
These headaches are commonly seen in individuals who spend long hours at the computer each day. The added stress on your neck and upper back muscles add up throughout time.
Taking a proactive approach with a proper exercise plan in combination with chiropractic adjustment and soft tissue treatment will aid in reducing the risk of tension/ cervicogenic headaches.
Migraine headaches are one of the most severe types of headaches there is.
The patients may experience visual disturbances, loss of sensation, nausea, vomiting, and hypersensitivity to light or sound. These symptoms can be experienced before or during the headache.
Chiropractic adjustment, soft tissue treatments, and modifying daily stressors have be shown to be highly effective in reducing migraine intensity and frequency.
Our goal is to not only provide you with the correct diagnosis, but determine the root cause of your headache and create an individualized treatment plan specifically for you.
Treatment for headaches consists of:
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Soft tissue treatment
