Our Mequon Chiropractor Helps Prevent Headaches
Headaches are a common condition. The pain they cause can be anything from an annoyance to downright debilitating. There are different types of headaches, but all of them have the potential to ruin your day. At Wisconsin Family & Sports Chiropractic in Mequon, WI, we have been helping our community members solve their headache woes for many years.
Underlying Factors that May Cause Headaches
Different types of headaches have different causes. Some of the most common causes of headaches include:
- Muscle tension in the neck and shoulders
- Fluid accumulation from a cold or allergy in the nasal, sinus, and eye areas
- Certain foods
- Anxiety, depression, or other disorders
Spinal misalignments also tend to cause headaches, as well as injuries, collisions, or other impacts to the neck, shoulders, or head.
Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief
Chiropractic care is a safe, non-invasive, and painless way to find relief from head-related pain and tension. We can pinpoint the cause of your problems and create a custom treatment plan specifically for your pain issues with modern-day methods.
We begin by learning about your medical history, any injuries you've sustained, new or old, and then look at the alignment of your spine, neck, shoulders, hips, and legs. X-rays might show us further details depending on your situation. In the office, we'll test your range of motion and talk to you about the movements you make at home and on the job.
Once all the data is in, our chiropractor will recommend one or more of the following treatments to restore you to whole health.
- Massage therapy (targeted or relaxation)
- Manual muscle manipulation
- Spinal alignment
- Spinal decompression
- Electronic muscle stimulation
- Hot and cold therapy
Our chiropractor will be able to tell you which ones of the above you'll need and for how often. We always work with our patients to ensure they are comfortable with their treatment plans.
