Are Headaches or Migraines Keeping You Down?

Are Headaches or Migraines Keeping You Down?

Posted By Atlanta Pain & Rehab || 1-Nov-2014

When it comes to headaches or migraines, often times people try to take some over-the-counter medication and push through the pain. While they may offer temporary relief, it doesn’t treat the root cause of the issue. There are many different types of headaches such as tension headaches, cluster headaches, and migraines. Most headaches are tension headaches, but 25 million people a year experience migraines. That’s a lot of people suffering from these issues. At Atlanta Pain and Rehab, we want to find the root cause of the problem, not just treat the symptoms. Our patients are often frustrated by chronic headache and migraine pain and we understand what they go through. We offer several highly effective services to help treat the cause of headaches and migraines:

Physical Therapy

This non-invasive and holistic approach has many positive effects on the body’s overall health, including relieving headache and migraine pain. Using treatments that help to improve muscle strength, balance, and circulation, physical therapy can help to promote tension relief and blood and oxygen circulation.

Chiropractic

Our specialists are highly trained in properly applying chiropractic techniques that realign the spine for several health benefits. These may include better muscle tension relief, better neck mobility, and increased flow of blood and oxygen to the brain. These non-invasive procedure consists of gentle spinal manipulation techniques that carefully executed for maximum effectiveness.

Trigger Point Injection Therapy

Often times, the pain can be subdued with trigger point injections. These injections are used to help relax muscles that are tense or in “knots”, causing the individual pain. These points of pain can often times block nutrients and oxygen from freely flowing. TPJ injections relax the tensed muscle to alleviate these symptoms, resulting in better circulation to the brain.
