Millions of people suffer from chronic headaches, which can interfere with their day-to-day lives and lead them to dependence on pain medication in their quest for relief. Our doctor of chiropractic at Springfield Chiropractic Clinic has a better approach for treating this common and sometimes crippling ailment. By using natural methods that don’t require potentially harmful drugs, we seek to identify and treat the underlying causes of these headaches.
Whether you’re experiencing periodic annoying headaches or severe migraines, the cause for some may be pressure that’s being placed on the spine or neck. In those cases we employ a hands-on technique called an adjustment that consists of gently manipulating these areas to relieve pain and decrease the frequency and severity of your headaches.
Each patient who comes into our friendly, comfortable office receives a thorough examination that may include an X-ray and other tests to reach a diagnosis. We also evaluate your diet, medical history, sleep habits, stress levels and other factors that may be affecting your health. We’ll discuss lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques that can provide help. Our doctor of chiropractic takes a holistic approach that considers the total picture, not just the patient’s symptoms.
We ask new patients to keep in mind that, although you may experience improvements after your first adjustment, our treatments often require more than one visit to achieve our goals. The subtle changes in your body’s alignment that we are providing do not happen overnight. Medication that promises instant relief does not treat the root causes of your headaches and can prove harmful if taken too frequently.
Under the care of our friendly, highly skilled doctor of chiropractic at Springfield Chiropractic Clinic you’ll experience natural, hands-on relief that will unlock your body’s own ability to heal itself.
