Debilitating migraine headaches affect so many of our patients, and we are pleased that our physical medicine clinic offers drug-free, effective techniques to alleviate this chronic condition. Many migraine sufferers have experienced headaches for decades, and most feel that heavy medication is the most effective method of pain relief. But relying on narcotics is frustrating, and wouldn’t it be great if you could eliminate headaches for good?
At our clinic, we offer the latest diagnostic assessment and physical medicine treatments to not only alleviate your migraine pain, but also decrease the frequency—or end all together!—your migraine headaches.
Our initial evaluation will help determine the root of your headache pain so that we can establish the best course of treatment for you. We will first ensure that your neck and spine are in alignment, and that the soft tissue surrounding these important stabilizers is relaxed and elastic. Chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy sessions, and localized massage therapy is best suited to realign your neck and spine.
Through expert spinal manipulations, our professionals can ensure your neck and spine are in proper alignment. Once your body’s positioning is improved with the adjustments, routine chiropractic care is a great preventative toward future headaches.
Physical therapy is key in alleviating chronic headaches. A physical therapist can help you focus on the muscles and strength of the upper body—face, neck, and upper back. Adjusting your posture, simple stretching, and improving flexibility in the joints all work toward stopping destructive headaches.
There are few better ways to relax than through massage therapy, and our specialists help you relax over-stressed muscles in the upper body—that are most likely contributing to the chronic headaches. Also, massage therapists offer relaxation techniques that you can try if you feel a headache may be starting.
We often suggest that patients undergo ALCAT testing to uncover any food sensitivities or allergies that may contribute to chronic headaches. The ACLAT test, or antigen leukocyte antibody test, measures the body’s adverse response to particular foods. The test is a simple blood analysis that can be done on site for your convenience. Should the ALCAT test reveal any existing allergies or food sensitivities, we will work with you to create meal plans that are healthy, delicious, and easy to prepare.
