If you suffer from frequent or severe headaches and migraines, you don’t have to keep living in pain. At Duluth Injury & Rehab Center in Duluth, GA, we offer holistic headache treatment to provide lasting relief without medication side effects.
As an experienced chiropractor serving Duluth for over 25 years, We have helped hundreds of headache sufferers finally find relief. We use a combination of gentle chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue work, stretches, and lifestyle advice to address the root causes of your headaches.
What Causes Headaches?
Headaches can stem from many underlying issues in your neck and head, including:
- Neck injuries or misalignments affecting your spine
- Tension or spasms in your neck and shoulder muscles
- Jaw clenching or TMJ disorders
- Dehydration or poor nutrition
- Stress, anxiety, or fatigue
The most common headache types we treat at Duluth Injury & Rehab Center include:
- Tension headaches from tight muscles
- Migraines related to neurology and blood vessels
- Cervicogenic headaches arising from neck problems
Our comprehensive Chiropractic care is highly effective at treating headaches and migraines by addressing their underlying structural causes.
Comparing Headaches vs. Migraines
While both headaches and migraines cause head pain, there are some key differences:
- Causes: Headaches are often caused by muscle tension, neck issues, or triggers like stress or eyestrain. Migraines have a neurological cause related to brain and blood vessel function.
- Pain location: Headaches typically cause pain on both sides of the head. Migraines commonly occur on one side.
- Pain type: Headache pain is often described as squeezing or pressure. Migraine pain is throbbing, intense, and debilitating.
- Symptoms: Migraines cause more neurological symptoms like nausea, sensitivity to light/sound, and visual disturbances.
- Duration: Tension headaches are generally short-lived. Migraines can last anywhere from 4 hours to 3 days.
While their symptoms differ, chiropractic can be effective for treating tension headaches, migraines, and more by addressing misalignments and dysfunctions.
Chiropractic Treatments Tailored to Your Headache Pain
Our goal at Duluth Injury & Rehab Center is to give you complete and lasting relief from your headache pain. We perform a thorough exam to determine the root cause and customize a treatment plan just for you.
Gentle chiropractic adjustments realign your spine to improve function, reduce nerve irritation, and alleviate referred pain to your head. I use specific adjustment techniques that are proven safe and effective for headache treatment.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, I may include:
- Soft tissue massage to relax tight muscles
- Stretches and exercises to improve neck mobility
- Advice on posture, ergonomics, and lifestyle habits
- Nutritional counseling to avoid triggers and alleviate inflammation
This well-rounded approach addresses every aspect of your headache pain. Patients often report significant improvement in headache frequency and intensity within just 4-6 weeks.
