Most people know what it is like to have a headache. And most people who experience headaches frequently will tell you that even a mild headache can be a miserable experience. There often seems like there is no escape from a headache, and the more severe the headache, the more desperate you feel to make the discomfort stop. If you experience headaches often, and if you do not want to treat them with over-the-counter medications, Catalyst Chiropractic & Rehab located in Blaine, Minnesota can help you. Give us a call today.
Over the counter medications provide some relief for some people some of the time. But relying on over-the-counter solutions can come with a cost: non-prescription pain relievers can have negative effects on the liver and kidneys, especially when used over long periods of time. Catalyst Chiropractic & Rehab offers treatments that not only relieve the pain of headaches, but also can prevent them from occurring. In some cases, our treatments make headaches disappear altogether. At a minimum, chiropractic treatment can make it less likely that your headaches will return with the same frequency and severity.
Identifying The Cause Of Your Headaches
Our primary goal is to narrow down the causes of your headaches. We may determine that your headaches are caused by neck strain, possibly from sleeping on an unsupportive pillow or as a result of whiplash after an auto accident. In such cases, chiropractic adjustment could be an excellent first step in relieving the symptoms and getting to the underlying causes of your headaches.
Not all headaches are caused by worn out pillows or car accidents, however. Sometimes, they are caused by prolonged stress or poor ergonomics, which puts significant stress on your body. If stress is a principal underlying cause of your headaches, we may determine that massage therapy is the best first option. Releasing the built-up stress that lives in soft tissue as lactic acid allows the body’s immune system to kick into high gear. The feeling of relaxation that comes from massage therapy is actually a chemical process whereby the body attacks the waste material released from muscles by means of massage. Massage therapy literally causes the body to awaken to the need to heal itself.
