Treating cervicogenic headaches
Chiropractic care often replaces other kinds of headache treatments or is a wonderful adjunct therapy for cervicogenic headaches. What causes these painful spasms? Often spinal misalignment in the neck area can. Combine this with weak or strained muscles from poor posture, odd sleep positions, or an injury from a fall or car accident, and you have recurring headaches. VeryWellHealth says cervicogenic headaches typically start on one side of the head and may progress down the neck and arm.
To treat these headaches, get a complete chiropractic exam with your Federal Way chiropractor. Dr. Winger frequently sees spinal misalignments, or subluxations, which are relieved with hands-on spinal manipulation. Rest, ice, and over the counter ibuprofen or acetaminophen help as well.
Treating migraine headaches
Throbbing pain, sensitivity to light and odors, nausea, and vertigo. These are the all too familiar symptoms of migraine headaches. Identification of migraine triggers is critical to limiting the severity and frequency of symptoms, and chiropractic care can help too.
Common treatments include:
- Relaxation techniques with an emphasis on stress management
- Spinal adjustments
- Massage on trigger points (areas of muscular irritation) in the neck, shoulders, and back
