Do you suffer from migraines, tension headaches, chronic headaches or cluster headaches? A headache is the body’s way of signaling that something is not right. Along with back and neck pain, headaches are one of the most common complaints. And although they are common, you should not have to suffer from them. Luckily, Adamson Chiropractic is here in the South Puget Sound to help pin-point the root of your pain and kick that headache for good! An evaluation can determine whether your headache may be caused or aggravated by misaligned vertebrae in the spine, muscle tension or nerve interruption.
Extensive research has proven that chiropractic care is very effective for treating tension headaches, especially headaches that originate in the neck. Dr. Adamson uses Active Release Technique which is a state of the art soft tissue technique to quickly resolve your aches and pains.
Adamson Chiropractic strives to ensure proper alignment of your neck and spine. Misalignment of the spinal bones in the neck is a common cause of headaches as it results in improper support of the head. This can affect nerves, muscles and even blood supply to the head. Dr. Adamson will locate and correct spinal misalignments by performing a gentle manipulation or a chiropractic adjustment to improve spinal function and alleviate stress on your system.
How do bones become misplaced or misaligned? Spinal misalignments typically occur with a traumatic head or neck injury such as a fall, an accident or an injury that may have occurred without you knowing it! It may have even been caused by activities that took place years before. Tension along the spine may also occur from extended time on a computer, poor posture or prolonged stress. All of this takes a toll on the body and causes joint irritation and muscle tension in the neck.
A headache may be caused by improper diet, eye strain, excessive noise, dehydration or, on rare occasion, a more severe medical condition. Often the cause is muscle tension and irritation of the nerves and blood vessels in the neck. Dr. Adamson performs a thorough evaluation to get to know each patient, learn their history, discover any possible injuries suffered, both past and present, and develops a care plan to address specific needs for each individual patient.
