The World Health Organization categorizes headaches as one of the most common nervous system disorders in the world. From tension headaches to cluster and migraine headaches, they all hamper a person’s ability to function. Your Pinnacle Wellness chiropractor in San Antonio provides drug-free, non-invasive headache pain relief treatment that addresses the root causes of headaches.
Several things can aggravate headaches, but one major root cause between them is nerve irritation, which chiropractic care successfully treats:
Nerve irritation at the base of the skull, often caused by misalignments of vertebrae in the neck, can irritate the membrane surrounding the brain, nerves in the face, neck and head.
Chiropractic care and complementary therapies like massage and cold laser therapy can provide successful pain relief treatment because they don’t just mask the symptoms like painkillers do. They address the underlying irritants causing the headaches:
Chiropractic care—Using precise, gentle chiropractic adjustments to realign vertebrae, often in the neck, your San Antonio chiropractor relieves pinched, irritated nerves. This can reduce the frequency and severity of headaches, often preventing future attacks.
Massage Therapy—Massage therapy relieves soft tissue tensions that can aggravate poor posture issues that irritate nerves. Massage also releases endorphins, your body’s natural painkillers.
Cold Laser Therapy—Many of our patients have experienced headache relief with this treatment as it improves circulation and boosts serotonin levels.
