Headache Treatment through Spinal Decompression
Suffering from headaches is no fun, especially if you are experiencing chronic headaches that are stronger than a mild ache in the forehead. Seeing a chiropractor for headaches offers various treatments to provide relief and manage chronic headaches. In addition, when the headache is caused by tension or stress in the spine, spinal decompression may help relieve headache pain.
The chiropractic care team at Winter Haven Wellness Center understands many causes of headaches and is dedicated to providing pain relief management for patients throughout the Polk County, FL, area.
Symptoms of Headaches
Headache symptoms vary from patient to patient, significantly depending upon the root cause of the headache pain. Common headache symptoms include a dull ache, pressure, pain, chronic fatigue, irritability, and trouble concentrating. Other symptoms may include sensitivity to light and noise and dizziness. Some people also experience pain down the side of the face and neck. It is also possible to experience pain in the shoulder blades and upper back when experiencing headache pain.
How Spinal Decompression Can Help with Headaches
Spinal decompression is a standard treatment used by chiropractors to help treat headaches and other body pain. Spinal decompression helps stretch the spine, relieves pain, and increases spinal function. Ultimately, this can help alleviate symptoms associated with chronic headaches.
One of the leading causes of headache pain is when the spine stops supporting the head correctly. It can cause stress on the back of the neck without proper spine support, which can be intensified by bad posture and emotional stress. If left untreated, it can cause excruciating pain, including headaches and migraines.
Spinal decompression helps lengthen the spine to help relieve abnormal pressure on the discs, providing relief in the back and neck area where pain may radiate.
Other Chiropractic Care for Headaches
In addition to spinal decompression, a chiropractor can provide many other treatment options to help you become pain-free and relieve your headaches. Other chiropractic treatments may include spinal adjustments, massage therapy, stretching exercises, and nutritional counseling.
