How Lehigh Acres Headache Treatment Can Work for Your Symptoms
Chronic headaches and recurring acute head and neck pain are common. Many people suffer these symptoms and have headaches that affect their quality of life, ability to work and earn a living, and engage in activities they enjoy. There are several reasons why headaches occur, and chiropractic care could address some of the most common causes.
Tension held in the jaw, shoulders, and neck often causes tension headaches. This could occur because of stress or anxiety. Cervicogenic headaches are usually related to injuries or arthritis or from holding a drooping head position regularly. Some headaches occur because of an acute injury, such as whiplash or a concussion.
While migraines are not usually musculoskeletal in nature and are less likely to resolve completely with our treatments, we can often help our patients measure their pain and reduce the frequency of debilitating headaches.
When someone suffers chronic headaches or recurring acute pain, our Lehigh Acres team can assess their condition and prescribe treatments and services to help them manage their pain and reduce or eliminate their headaches. We want to help you get your life back and avoid the inconvenience of daily pain medications.
How Our Team Prescribes Lehigh Acres Headache Treatment Plans
Many headaches occur because of acute or chronic musculoskeletal injuries or misalignments. Chiropractic adjustments to address a spinal misalignment and correct poor posture and neck tension could stop your headaches and prevent you from getting them in the future.
Our doctors generally prescribe several therapies that work to help you feel relief quickly and stop recurrences by treating the cause. We also use rehabilitation exercises to help patients improve their overall health and well-being. Our hope is that every patient leaves our therapy program in better health and more able to live the life they want to.
How We Prescribe the Correct Therapies for Lehigh Acres Headache Treatment
The Specific Care Chiropractic team carefully assesses each patient’s condition, needs, and goals during their initial appointment with our team. You should expect this appointment to last a little longer than most. We will conduct a physical exam, discuss your health history, use medical imaging such as X-rays, and take any other steps necessary to better understand the cause of your symptoms.
Next, we use the information we gained in your intake exam to determine the underlying cause of your headaches and prepare a headache treatment plan personalized to your needs. This will likely include complementary therapies to help manage your symptoms, therapies to address the cause of your symptoms, and rehabilitation to improve strength and flexibility.
Our therapists continually assess and reassess patients during each visit. This allows us to alter your plan as you progress. We can add therapies, remove therapies, or change the adjustments or repetitions we are using to provide effective treatment.
How Do Lehigh Acres Headache Care and Rehabilitation Work?
Our doctors know the most common musculoskeletal causes of headaches, including how to identify and treat them. This includes injuries from auto crashes, sports and recreational activities, workplace accidents, chronic use, and more. We may be able to help with headaches related to a wide range of injuries, such as:
Three of the most common types of headaches we see and treat at our Lehigh Acres clinic include:
Tension headaches can occur because of stress that causes you to clench your muscles or because of injuries, weakness, or other physical issues in the face, head, neck, and upper back.
Treatment for tension headaches will likely focus on manual adjustments with our chiropractors, working to rebuild strength and flexibility with physical therapists, and possibly prescribe lifestyle changes to help reduce your stress level.
Cervicogenic headaches occur, by definition, because of a problem with the top three vertebrae in the spine. Headaches are a common symptom of injuries, arthritis, and overuse of these joints. We are seeing these headaches more and more in young people who spend long hours with their heads drooped to look at a computer, phone, or tablet.
Treatment includes chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, and correction of poor posture.
Migraines are not usually caused by a musculoskeletal problem. To that end, we are not always able to address migraine symptoms through chiropractic adjustments. However, we can help many patients reduce the intensity and frequency of their migraine pain through chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy.
We may prescribe chiropractic adjustments to realign the spine, stretches to loosen and relax the muscles, and strengthening exercises to rebuild the neck and shoulders.
How Can Lehigh Acres Headache Treatment Help You Manage Your Pain Today?
While your plan for chiropractic care and physical therapy works to reduce the intensity and frequency of headaches and could stop them from occurring, you need relief now. While prescription painkillers and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the best option for some people, they are not for everyone.
We believe in offering options for our patients who want or need to avoid pharmaceuticals to manage their pain. Our doctors prescribe complementary therapies to help patients alleviate their pain while we address the underlying cause. This could include:
- Ultrasound therapy
- Massage therapy
- E-STIM therapy
- Infrared light therapy
