Headache Relief

When you think of chiropractors, you might think that they focus on only back pain. However, a chiropractor can often provide lasting pain relief throughout the body. If you suffer from headaches or migraines, chiropractic care may be able to provide lasting relief without the need to rely on pain medications. We’ll take a look at how chiropractic care can help. If you need help with headaches in Phoenix, AZ, get in touch with the Mountainside Wellness Center. Dr. John Mettham and Dr. Jazmin Torres can help.

How Chiropractors Can Help with Migraines and Headaches

Your headaches might be caused by issues with your back or neck. If your spine is not properly aligned, it can lead to muscle tension and strain in your back and neck. This strain can put pressure on the muscles connected to your head, triggering migraines or tension headaches. Misalignments or swelling in your neck can also block the flow of cerebrospinal fluid.

While taking pain medications or using a warm compress may provide temporary relief, if the spine misalignment is the root cause of the muscle strain or blockages, you are likely to experience more headaches. To find lasting relief, it's important to address the misalignment of your back and spine.

A chiropractor can use chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue massages, and other treatments to address issues with your back and neck. This can lead to lasting pain relief and may even prevent headaches and migraines. If you need help with headaches in Phoenix, AZ, visit the Mountainside Wellness Center, where Dr. Mettham and Dr. Torres can assist you.

Other Ways to Address Headaches

If tension headaches are a recurring problem, a chiropractor can teach you how to perform a variety of therapeutic exercises that may help prevent them. Dietary and nutritional adjustments may also provide relief. Cold laser therapy could stimulate natural healing processes that can address and prevent headaches.

Ultimately, it's wise to come up with a custom treatment plan based on your lifestyle, risk factors, and other individual variables. Since chiropractic care focuses on addressing underlying issues, it may also be possible to reduce dependence on pain medications, which often lose effectiveness over time. If you need assistance with headaches and live in or near Phoenix, AZ, come see Dr. Mettham and Dr. Torres at Mountainside Wellness Center. You can reach the center by calling 480-940-7444.
