How We Make Headaches Vanish

Do you find yourself battling frequent headaches, feeling like they're more than just a passing inconvenience? Did you know that the average number of headaches PER YEAR is only 7??? That’s not healthy, that’s average. Headaches can be debilitating, impacting every aspect of your life and leaving you feeling frustrated and exhausted. But what many people don't realize is that headaches are often linked to underlying issues like neck pain, jaw pain, and shoulder discomfort.

There is Good News For Headaches

The good news? Chiropractic care at Advocate Wellness offers a holistic approach to addressing headaches and other symptoms you may not even realize are related. Our unique way of delivering care includes therapies like myofascial therapy and red light therapy (low-level laser therapy), which play a crucial role in providing relief and restoring balance to your body.

Headaches Affect Your Whole Body

Headaches are more than just a pain in the head – they can have widespread effects on your entire body. From causing neck tension to triggering jaw pain and shoulder discomfort, headaches can disrupt your daily activities and diminish your quality of life.

One of the most common causes of headaches is tension in the muscles of the neck and shoulders. Poor posture, stress, and repetitive movements can all contribute to muscle tension in these areas, leading to headaches that radiate from the base of the skull to the temples and forehead. At their worst patients share with me that these headaches feel like they’re getting stabbed in the back of the eye. 

Additionally, jaw pain and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction can also be culprits behind headaches. When the jaw is misaligned or under stress, it can lead to muscle tension and inflammation, triggering headaches and facial pain.

We Can Address the Underlying Conditions of Headaches

Our comprehensive solutions address headaches and their underlying causes instead of just patching symptoms. Through gentle spinal adjustments, we realign the cervical spine, relieve pressure and inflammation on your nerves, and reduce tension in the muscles of the neck and shoulders. This not only helps alleviate headaches but also helps you have better posture and overall musculoskeletal health.

In addition to spinal adjustments, we also provide therapies like myofascial therapy and red light therapy to further support the healing process. Myofascial therapy specifically focuses on releasing tension and adhesions within the fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds and supports the muscles. It’s different than massage (even though it can look like it) because it doesn’t focus on the muscle nearly so much as the fascia. By addressing restrictions and scar tissue in your fascia, myofascial therapy can help improve your mobility, alleviate pain, and reduce tension in your neck, shoulders, and jaw.

Red light therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy, utilizes specific wavelengths of light (in our office we use red and infrared light) to penetrate deep into the tissues, stimulating cellular repair and reducing inflammation. We direct it specifically each appointment based on your body’s highest priority so that it can stimulate healing where your body needs it most. This non-invasive treatment helps accelerate the healing process, relieves pain, and improves overall function in affected areas.

Fix The Underlying Cause

We’re not satisfied with just symptom swapping or anything that ignores the underlying cause. We look at both the structural and functional aspects of headaches and through our expert chiropractic care offer a holistic approach to healing that goes beyond just symptom “management”. Someone will actually sit down with you, listen to you, seek to understand what you’ve been going through, and, after a detailed examination, make a personalized recommendation to help you get your life back. 

Whether you're struggling with tension headaches, migraines, or headaches related to jaw pain, chiropractic care can help you find relief and restore balance to your body and your life.
