Are you wondering whether chiropractic care could help keep headaches at bay?
There is nothing that can put a damper on your day faster than a headache. The throbbing temples, the pain behind the eyes…it’s enough to ruin anyone’s day. Headaches can greatly impact your life, affecting your work and making you far less productive. If you deal with headaches pretty regularly then you may feel as if your work performance is slipping. This is where our Edmonton, AB chiropractors Dr. Christopher Oviatt and Dr. Michelle Martinook may be able to help you get back on track.
One treatment option that may finally help you find relief is chiropractic adjustments. So, how can chiropractor adjustments help your symptoms? If you suffer from tension headaches, as many working professionals do, this could be due to muscle tension and irritation in the neck. All you have to do is think about how often you sit hunched over at your desk and you’ll start to realize why you may be experiencing headaches.
Fortunately, regular spinal adjustments are just one effective way that our Edmonton, AB, chiropractic doctor can help improve how your body functions and feels. Through manual manipulation, stretches and rehabilitative exercises we can realign the spine and take pressure off certain muscles and joints in the body that may be irritated. Spinal manipulation is known to improve mobility, function, and range-of-motion, as well as reduce pain and swelling. Headaches can often be improved through spinal manipulations.
Of course, there are many ways in which a chiropractor can help you. When we sit down with you, we will discuss your symptoms and determine different lifestyle modifications and ergonomic changes that you can follow everyday to improve your headache symptoms. Small lifestyle modifications such as getting up to stretch every 30 minutes during your workday and nixing certain foods from your diet could greatly reduce the frequency of your headache symptoms.
If you aren’t someone who participates in exercise, we may recommend starting a low-impact exercise regime that is less likely to trigger a headache and can also strengthen and improve the musculoskeletal system to reduce muscular tension.
