Before starting any chiropractic treatments for stress headaches, you should make sure that your headaches are not a symptom of a more serious health condition. At Wesley Chapel Chiropractic, this is one of the first measures that we take – which is why we perform a health assessment.
Prior to your appointment, it’s highly recommended to keep a journal of your headaches with information such as when they occur and a short description of the pain. This will give you more information to provide to the doctor.
Depending on the frequency and occurrences, you may be asked to undergo more testing to make sure that your headaches are not caused by a tumor or aneurysm. A scan of the brain is the best way for the doctor to determine whether these conditions are the cause of your pain. When these conditions have been ruled out and the diagnosis is stress headaches, chiropractic care and treatments can be utilized.
- Spinal Manipulation
Spinal manipulation is when a chiropractor adjusts the spinal column, realigning it to the desired position. Since the pain that you are experiencing may be the result of nerve irritation caused by these misalignment, through spinal manipulation, chiropractors can alleviate many headaches and migraines.
- Allowing the Body to Heal
If traditional healing methods are not working for your headaches, it’s time to seek the professional alternative care treatments of a Wesley Chapel chiropractor. Chiropractic care is a natural and alternative treatment method that does not use surgical intervention or drugs.
Before you undergo any chiropractic treatment, always take the time to ask questions to ensure you understand exactly what to expect. At Wesley Chapel Chiropractic, we sit down with each patient and explain exactly how the spinal adjustment process works. In the event that the first recommended means of treatment does not work, together, we can will find the next best treatment to cure your headaches.
