Mercer Island Chiropractic Relieve Headaches in Seattle, WA
Headaches are a debilitating pain condition for millions of people and are often recurring. Are you seeking a more natural alternative to over-the-counter drug medications that can relieve your headaches? Chiropractic care is your answer.
What Causes Your Headache?
The cause of a headache can be eyestrain, sinus congestion, muscular tension, vascular changes and numerous other underlying causes. The pain can begin in the back of the head, on the sides or top of the head, over the eyes or centered behind the eyes. The one thing all these headaches have in common is they hurt and sometimes they hurt tremendously. The amount of pain may range from a mild ache to an excruciating, nauseating, endless pain.
The good news is many Seattle patients have found lasting relief from headache pain through chiropractic care. A great deal of research has shown chiropractic can effectively treat primary headaches. Typically we see three kinds of headaches in our Mercer Island Chiropractic office: tension headaches, migraine headaches and cervicogenic headaches. Cervicogenic headaches are caused by pain referred to the head from the bony or soft tissues of the neck.
Why is a Seattle, WA Chiropractor Beneficial for Your Headache?
At Mercer Island Chiropractic we have experienced considerable success in relieving the cause of many headaches. Our Seattle, WA office offers a safe, drug-free, effective care that can prevent and alleviate your headache. Prescription and over-the-counter drug medications may control your headache pain, but they only hide the pain without addressing the cause. Headache medications may also have side effects, especially with long-term use. However, chiropractic care is a natural, holistic remedy because it focuses on understanding and treating the root cause of your headache pain. Most important, chiropractic care offers a long-term solution instead of merely addressing the symptoms of your underlying condition.
Chiropractic adjustments combined with other therapies such as massage can realign the skeleton and release muscular tension to break the cycle of pain. Often patients with chronic headaches will find relief through chiropractic in just a few treatments as muscles relax and nerve irritation is reduced. Once the cause of your pain is resolved, there is no need to keep taking medication or even continue with your treatment!
