An estimated eight million people throughout the United States suffer from chronic headaches, leading them to seek medical care. Many people turn to over-the-counter medications to stop the pain. Our doctor of chiropractic at Springfield Chiropractic Clinic has a better way of addressing these common, and treatable, conditions.
Our practice promotes wellness through natural, holistic treatments that use the body’s own power to heal itself. We believe that taking proper care of the body is crucial in maintaining total health, and consider all aspects of our patients’ lifestyles during our initial evaluation and ongoing treatment plan. Each patient’s medical history, diet, exercise routine, fitness level, sleep habits, and ability to cope with stress at home and at work are all key to understanding the possible reasons for chronic headaches.
Among the treatments available at our clean, modern office to reduce tension on the head and neck area that may be causing headaches are soft tissue massage, ultrasound and electric stimulation. We also may suggest manual adjustments of the spine to correct misalignments (known as subluxations), in order to ease pressure on muscles and nerves that may be the cause of a patient’s headaches. Relieving pressure on the sinuses, and introducing strategies for managing stress may also be part of our treatment.
Patients who have never received the hands-on, one-on-one care provided by an experienced doctor of chiropractic are surprised at the relief they feel — without having to rely on medication that only masks and does not treat the underlying causes of their headaches. We work with our patients to make the critical adjustments necessary to promote lasting wellness.
Let our doctor of chiropractic at the office of Springfield Chiropractic Clinic treat your headaches with natural pain-relieving techniques that have proved successful in promoting healing without the need for medication. Please don’t hesitate to contact our office today to schedule an evaluation.
