Head pain in the form of headaches and migraines is not only uncomfortable, it is also distracting. At Lodes Chiropractic Center in Wilmington, we bring a natural approach to headache relief. When you suffer from headaches, you are unable to give the other areas in your life the attention they need. Instead, all you focus on is getting relief. Most often this relief comes from popping a pill to cover your symptoms so you can work, play or sleep without pain. We help you reduce your head pain without the use of medication. The way we do this is by focusing on the cause of your headaches and migraines.
We strive to find the source of your headaches and migraines so we can make the changes necessary to bring you a pain-free life. One in which you will not have to worry if your headaches or migraines will interfere with your next family activity or vacation or sporting event.
Headaches and migraines do not affect each person the same way. The pain varies in its placement and may begin in your neck, temples, jaw, forehead or top of the head. You also may experience light sensitivity, accentuated hearing, blurred vision, nausea or vomiting, fatigue and irritability. Migraine sufferers typically need to be in a dark room without a lot of stimuli to bring relief from the variety of symptoms that collect during an episode.
You may discover your own triggers for headaches. If we can help you make connections to lifestyle changes, we eliminate headache triggers. Causes for your head pain may include a computer that is set too high or too low. If you spend the majority of your day working at a desk, we show you how to organize your area to eliminate headaches. If your headaches are sudden, they may be the consequence of an accident, injury or vertebrae that has slipped out of place.
Our Lodes Chiropractic Center team wants to bring you immediate headache relief. Our chiropractors evaluate your neck and back to determine if your spine is in alignment. If we locate vertebrae that are in misalignment, it may be pressing on nerves and contributing to your headaches. Our chiropractor will gently move the vertebrae into place which brings you immediate relief. Then, we show you how to support this alignment through lifestyle changes and exercises. We want you to keep your spine healthy to reduce your head pain.
Headaches and migraines respond well to chiropractic care. We encourage repeated visits as a protective measure to keep you pain-free. As a natural, medication-free alternative to headache relief, chiropractic care also boosts your overall health and immunity. Do not wait to call us if you are suffering from headaches. We have a variety of chiropractic options to help you. Reach out to us today at (302) 477-1565.
