Without treatment, individuals suffering from massive headaches often must resort to just sitting quietly in a darkened room until the symptoms subside. For patients whose preference is to avoid using prescription pain medication, chiropractic treatment may be the best available option. A therapeutic massage that melts away stress and tension may be just the thing you need to eliminate your current headache as well as to help prevent future headaches whose primary cause is stress.
Sometimes the best medicine is taking some time to yourself and ensuring you have adequate “me time’ with no one pressuring you at work, school or at home. Regular massage therapy can do wonders for maintaining a relaxed and healthy state. At Ridge Health Center, we are able to conduct spinal manipulations, which are designed to eliminate pain from tension headaches. You’ll also feel more relaxed, which further helps to prevent future tension headaches.
Some patients may be having headaches because of bad nutrition. We’ll analyze your usual diet to identify if poor food selection is having an effect, and then we’ll recommend positive changes in your meal choices.
