Do You Have Migraines or Headaches?
Headaches and migraines interrupt the lives of millions in Orinda CA each day. Here at Orinda Chiropractic Center, we want to help anyone struggling with these episodes to find lasting pain relief, no matter the cause of the distress. In fact, finding the cause behind your headache or migraine problem is Dr. Wong’s goal. Instead of giving you painkillers just to cover up the outward symptoms, he will help you discover the true source of the pain and then work to resolve it through chiropractic care, massage therapy and also acupuncture so that you can truly find long-term pain relief.
How Chiropractic Treatment Helps with Headache and Migraine Pain Relief
There are several root causes that can bring about headache and migraine episodes. Stress and tension are common instigators for tension headaches. Many migraine sufferers have learned to avoid triggers such as certain kinds of food, smells or loud noises. These all aggravate headaches and migraines, but there are usually deeper, biomechanical causes as well. We find that many headache and migraine sufferers have a spinal misalignment called a “subluxation” somewhere in the cervical spine (neck region). These misalignments may be the result of years of slouching over a computer or sleeping on the wrong kind of pillow. Very frequently, they are the result of undiagnosed cases of whiplash that went untreated. All of these instigators cause vertebral misalignments that can pinch and do damage to the nerves that travel between the vertebrae. They also lead to soft tissue strains that can worsen headaches and migraines. And this is why chiropractic treatment can be a huge pain reliever.
Dr. Wong will carefully examine your posture and your medical history to get to the root of your headaches and migraines. Upon discovering a subluxation, he can provide several types of gentle, precise spinal adjustments that can bring the vertebrae back into correct alignment to relieve pinched nerves and pain. Chiropractic treatment is very safe and effective against headache and migraine pain and usually leads to long-term relief.
For people who also struggle with stress, nutritional imbalances or other problems that may be making matters worse, we also offer massage therapy and acupuncture. Massage therapy helps on several levels. It relieves musculoskeletal tensions, mental stress and releases endorphins into the body for natural pain relief. It is very helpful for accelerating healing of soft tissue strains in the neck that can lead to headache problems. Acupuncture is also effective at correcting biochemical imbalances in the body and relieving pain on that level. Again, the goal with all of Dr. Wong’s treatments is to bring the body back into complete balance, both structurally and biochemically. This multi-pronged approach goes much further and is far more effective for long-term pain relief.
