Headaches and migraines interfere with your entire day. If the discomfort lasts, it can affect your job, your home life and your leisure activities. Headaches sometimes creep up on you unexpectedly and begin as a dull ache which turns into a tremendous migraine. Other headaches occur instantly and can stop you in your tracks. Our Houston chiropractor reduces headaches and migraines with gentle, hands-on techniques that are non-invasive and medication-free.
Our team at Westchase Wellness Chiropractic Center educates you on headache triggers that can lead to discomfort. These triggers include:
food- sensitivities or allergies
environment- lights, noises, smells
stress- work or life
lack of sleep
intense or increased amounts of exercise
blood sugar changes
non-ergonomic work stations
As we work through the triggers and show you ways to avoid common ones, headache symptoms begin to disappear. For instance, we can show you how to set up a computer work station so your neck is in proper alignment. This reduces tension headaches that often begin in the back of the neck. According to the American Chiropractic Association, approximately 5 percent of headaches are a symptom of a physical problem. These warning signals give us a peek into your body’s health. Then, our chiropractor develops a care plan to help you overcome the uncomfortable and often debilitating pain of headaches or migraines.
Our chiropractor offers an alternative treatment for your headaches and migraines. Dr. John Huang will evaluate your condition and perform a spinal screening to determine a proper chiropractic care plan for you. Dr. Huang will gently manipulate and adjust your spine into a healthy alignment. These adjustments reduce the tension on the muscles that pull on your neck and help to alleviate tension headaches. Our chiropractor aligns the vertebrae of your spine so that your nerves are not compressed and your pain is reduced.
Dr. Huang also offers nutritional advice to support a healthy body and reduce the triggers for your headaches. He provides lifestyle guidance which may include exercises to strengthen muscles that are weak and to stretch areas that are tight. You learn relaxation techniques to stop headaches in their tracks. These are also helpful if you have difficulty sleeping.
This combinational approach also includes the use of electromagnetic therapy, emotional therapy, and detoxification. Our team develops a personalized plan to treat your migraines, which may include massage therapy sessions. Another thing you can do today to reduce your headache frequency is to stay hydrated.
