Treatment Options for Headache Pain
We offer a wide range of headache treatment options through two Central Florida physical rehabilitation clinics, in Sanford and Deltona. While our headache treatment services are customized to meet your needs, we often recommend one or more of the following services:
Chiropractic care as headache treatment attempts to realign the bones of the spine, especially those in the neck region, to allow for proper range of motion and in an attempt to decrease pressure on the nerves that may exacerbate headache pain.
Since many tension headaches and migraine headaches are accompanied by neck pain, headache sufferers find that manual therapies such as massage offer relief from headache pain and related symptoms. Because massage therapy relaxes tense muscles, relieves muscle spasms, improves blood flow and aids relaxation, it can be helpful for relieving the pain of both tension and vascular headaches.
Acupuncture can instantly relieve the pain caused by a headache. In some chronic conditions, it is best to receive acupuncture treatments between acute episodes of headache, especially for migraines headaches. In some cases, periodic acupuncture treatments may be required to prevent future occurrences of headache.
Adkore acupuncture practitioners perform subcutaneous injections of FDA approved homeopathic remedies for stubborn conditions, including headache pain, that does not respond well to acupuncture, herbal medicine and exercise.
If your headaches are caused by herniated or bulging disc in the cervical spine, spinal decompression is an option. The primary focus of non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is to treat disc injuries in the lumbar and cervical regions of the back. Treatment involves lying on a comfortable specially-built table, which flexes and bends in different directions under rigidly controlled conditions.
Typically, headache pain is caused by neck problems like poor posture, overuse or stress. You may experience pain from motion, which may also be in the shoulder of the same side. The headache pains that we treat out of our Sanford and Deltona rehabilitation clinics can be mild to severe, with or without a throbbing sensation and may change when pressure is applied to the muscles. Whether your headaches last a few hours, a few days or even weeks, we understand how debilitating they can be. And we are here to help. Our experienced therapists and physicians specialize in headache treatment for the following conditions:
- Tension headaches
- Migraine headaches
- Cluster headaches
- Headache muscle trigger points
