Redefine Healthcare is pleased to announce that they will now be offering chiropractic treatments as a remedy for migraines and other types of headaches.
Headaches are extremely common, and no two cases are identical. Some people suffer frequent, severe headaches to the point that these individuals miss work or school because of their pain. Some individuals experience unpredictable headaches that can strike at any time. There are many different types of headaches with various causes including migraines, tension headaches, cluster headaches, and cervicogenic headaches. In some cases, headaches will resolve on their own; in others, proactive treatment is needed. Fortunately, there are effective treatments available for headaches, and chiropractic care is one option that many people aren’t aware of.
Chiropractic treatments focus on proper body alignment, particularly the spine, to relieve pain, increase function and mobility, and enhance the body’s natural healing abilities. People seek chiropractic care for numerous reasons, including reducing neck or back pain, maximizing sports performance, boosting the immune system, and alleviating the symptoms of allergies or asthma. Now, headaches are on the list of conditions chiropractic care can treat.
Many patients who have tried chiropractic treatments for their headaches report an improvement in the frequency, intensity, and duration of their headaches, as well as improved ability to complete their regular daily activities consistently.
A spokesperson from Redefine Healthcare said, “There are many different causes of chronic headaches. If you are having trouble figuring out what your triggers are, start keeping a journal, noting what’s going on at the time to develop a headache. Were you drinking alcohol, slumping in front of your computer for hours, or excessively stressed out? Had you eaten certain foods such as processed meats or skipped a meal? Understanding your triggers is key to helping your doctor diagnose your headaches and determine the most effective treatments.”
Along with chiropractic treatments, Redefine Healthcare says that there are some things patients can do at home to help ease headaches. These steps include managing stress, taking breaks from looking down at phones or from long drives, trying over-the-counter pain medications such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, scheduling drug-free treatments such as massage or acupuncture, and visiting a dentist to find out whether clenching the teeth might be contributing to their pain. Patients can also experiment with different ways of sleeping, such as on the side, with a supportive body pillow and the neck in a neutral position.
“We hope that more and more people in our community will learn of the benefits of chiropractic care for headache pain,” said a Redefine Healthcare spokesperson. “Even when other therapies have failed, many of our patients have reported significant relief after just a few weeks of treatment. We believe in patient education and evidence-based treatments, and we’re excited about the increased understanding around chiropractic care and chronic headaches.”
