Headaches and migraines aren’t just uncomfortable - they can interfere with a person’s normal activities, not to mention their quality of life. The team at True Vitality KC uses a combination of chiropractic treatment and therapeutic massage to relieve symptoms of all types of headaches, including tension headaches and migraines.
Headaches are a very common medical complaint among patients of both sexes and all ages, and they can be caused by many factors, including:
Because so many issues can cause or contribute to headaches, a comprehensive chiropractic evaluation is the first step in treatment and geared toward identifying the specific cause of symptoms.
Migraine headaches are a particularly severe type of headache usually associated with significant pain which is often located on one side of the head. Patients often experience additional symptoms like nausea or heightened sensitivity to light or sound. Sometimes, migraines can cause visual symptoms like tunnel vision or glare. Researchers believe migraines are caused by a combination of nerve and circulation problems, and both chiropractic care and therapeutic massage can be excellent options for relieving symptoms and preventing their recurrence.
Many headaches are caused by muscle strain in the neck and upper back, or alignment problems in the spine that cause painful nerve compression. Chiropractic adjustments can help realign the spine to relieve compression on nerves so nerve signaling is restored and painful irritation is relieved. Massage works by promoting circulation and releasing built-up toxins in areas of inflammation, tapping into the body’s natural healing powers to relieve associated pain. Plus, many forms of massage help release muscle knots or “trigger points” that can be a common source of recurrent tension headaches, and massage can also promote a general feeling of relaxation that can aid in tension release. Finally, the holistic caregivers at True Vitality KC can provide lifestyle guidance, teaching patients specific techniques to help them identify and avoid triggers that can cause headaches to flare up.
