Chiropractic Care for Headaches in Halifax
Halifax chiropractor Dr. Krista Prowse Welch enjoys providing natural relief for many painful conditions that affect the body. These include relief from neck pain, back pain, headaches and migraines.
Chiropractic care is a natural, proven choice for treating headaches and migraines. Dr. Welch has been treating headaches and migraines for nearly 20 years, and has seen many great results.
On initial assessment, a cause of the headache must be found. This is often a restriction in the upper part of the neck, or cervical spine. Treatment then involves restoring normal motion to that segment. This can be done in several ways, depending on the patient.
Possible ways to loosen these tight segments include: chiropractic adjustments, gentle mobilizations or an adjusting instrument called an Activator. Accompanying musculature in the neck, shoulders and upper back are often tight as well. These areas are loosened with various soft tissue techniques. Last but not least, a holistic approach to treating headaches and migraines is often needed.
Sometimes treating only the joint and musculature aspect is not enough, and headaches often recur. Dr. Welch will discuss lifestyle choices with you help identify other triggers leading to the occurrence of headaches.
Such triggers are plentiful and may include: stress at home, stress at work, financial worries, poor diet, excess alcohol intake, excess caffeine intake, dehydration, sleep deprivation, poor posture, and simply sitting too much.
