The cause of headaches isn’t always easy to diagnose. Many determinants could contribute to the onset or persistence of headaches, including:
While most headaches aren’t something to worry about, if you experience frequent headaches or they become worse over time, this could indicate a more serious underlying condition.
Dr. Megan’s primary concern in treating headaches is understanding what causes them. As part of your initial appointment, you and Dr. Megan discuss your health history, lifestyle, and symptoms in detail. If she believes it’s necessary for you to get X-Rays or an MRI, she provides a referral.
Once Dr. Megan determines your headache’s cause, she uses chiropractic adjustments to relieve pressure on specific joints or nerve pathways that may be contributing to your pain.
Depending on your condition’s cause, the treatment may include craniosacral or sacro occipital techniques, where Dr. Megan applies pressure and light massage to areas of the skull, neck, jaw, or sacrum. Dr Megan has completed advanced cranial and headache care training that sets her apart from others in her field.
Chiropractic care is a demonstrably effective treatment option for people suffering from headaches, especially those that originate in the neck, or tension headaches. As a holistic treatment method, chiropractic also helps patients who are interested in trying a non-invasive or drug-free approach to healing.
While chiropractic care includes traditional adjustments, your treatment plan with Dr. Megan might also include recommendations for supplements, lifestyle changes, or stretches you can do at home to support your healing.
Dr. Megan might suggest changing your exercise routine, supporting your body with ergonomic furniture, or engaging in meditation exercises to promote a more balanced nervous system.
Over a period of time, chiropractic care with Dr. Megan not only reduces your symptoms, but eliminates the cause of your headaches so they don’t return. She’s also skilled at treating children, teens, and adults.
