How Chiropractors Can Treat Headaches
People experience headaches for several reasons, but tension in the shoulders and neck are a common trigger for symptoms. Lack of physical exercise or strenuous activities is often the root cause of tension. Joint irritation or inflammation is also a result of tension.
Fortunately, receiving chiropractic care from Dr. Mendyk and Dr. Lajom for headaches in Perris and Moreno Valley, CA, is an ideal solution. Spinal manipulation, adjustments and massage therapy are all effective techniques chiropractors use to alleviate and eliminate headache symptoms.
Chiropractic manipulations, also known as spinal manipulations/decompression, realign a person's spine so the joints return to their normal positions. Once the spine is back in alignment, it improves blood flow and reduces inflammation. Additionally, adjustments improve range of motion and flexibility, which lets people participate in activities like exercise or work without pain.
Chiropractors often use massage therapy to prevent tension headaches and many other musculoskeletal problems. The goal of the therapy is to return the body to its natural state using consistent manual massage. Over time, the body will remove waste by increasing blood circulation. Patients who receive regular massage therapy experience relief from muscle and joint pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, spasms, and issues with their immune systems.
Chiropractors use other techniques to relieve headache symptoms. Some of the treatments include electrical muscle stimulation, cryotherapy, ultrasound, therapeutic exercise and nutritional recommendations. What they have in common is that the ultimate goal of chiropractic care is to unlock the body's natural healing abilities.
At-home exercises that target specific parts of the body also help relieve headache symptoms. Dr. Mendyk and Dr. Lojam can build a personalized treatment plant using at-home exercises to relieve tension.
