At Total Body Healthcare in Hermitage, TN, our chiropractor, Dr. Ed Thomas, offers headache and migraine treatment using a chiropractic approach. Using a combination of chiropractic adjustments and proper nutrition, we can help alleviate the debilitating pain often associated with headaches and migraines.
How Our Chiropractor Provides Headache and Migraine Treatment
In many cases, chiropractors focus on the cervical spine, which is the spine in your neck, to help alleviate headache and migraine pain. The goal of spinal manipulation is to restore your spine's natural range of motion. Once your spine starts moving like it was designed to, your central nervous system can also function better. After a series of chiropractic adjustments, many patients report a significant reduction in headache and migraine pain. Patients also report a reduction in arm pain, shoulder pain, foot pain and leg pain, and pain from other ailments.
Headache and migraine treatment from a chiropractor is not limited to spinal manipulation. For example, we promote behavior and lifestyle modifications to help alleviate and eliminate pain from headaches and migraines.
If certain environmental or nutritional triggers are the root cause of your headaches, we'll work with you on making small changes to your lifestyle. For example, sitting at a computer for hours in the same position or constantly looking down at your phone are known to cause tension headaches. So, we'll work with you to improve your posture if these tasks are the root cause of your headaches.
We will also try and rule out any serious health issues that may be causing your pain. After reviewing your medical history and performing a full examination, Dr. Thomas will know if there is something more serious happening to your body. In some cases, patients just need to make some minor lifestyle changes, like mitigating stress or drinking more water throughout the day.
