There are more than 150 types of headaches and all of them can make you miserable. Headaches are one of the most common complaints requiring medical attention. Dr. Mark Kowalski of Kowalski Chiropractic in Dublin, OH will take the time to determine what type of headache you have and to help to find the cause of your headache. Treating the cause will provide longer lasting results than just treating the symptoms.
Headaches are often caused by tightness in the neck and shoulders. If you relieve this tightness, you can relieve the headache pain. One of the ways to relieve the tightness is to do a chiropractic adjustment. When the vertebrae in the neck are out of alignment, headaches can be the result. Getting things back into alignment can be done with one of many available adjustment techniques. Your chiropractor will use the technique that is most appropriate for your body and your condition. It can be a manual adjustment, or he may opt to use the Arthrostim, a special gentle handheld instrument.
Many different types of massage are available. If there are tense knots in your shoulders, upper back, and neck that are causing your headaches, you may need to have a deep massage to break up the trigger points or knots. If you just need to have a relaxing massage, you can also get that and feel relaxation and a sense of peace. Hot stones will make you not only relax but find the peace that may be missing from your life.
Therapeutic exercise can help to relieve some of the stress and tension that may be affecting your neck. Your chiropractor will set up a personalized program for you to help to get the tightness out of your neck and shoulders. You will be able to do these at home to help your therapy continue when you are away from the office.
