Dr. Cailin Uses Chiropractic to Treat Headaches
Relief can be found at Sunu Wellness
One of the most common conditions easily treated with chiropractic care is headaches. There are many types of headaches, but often tension and restriction in the suboccipital muscles is a piece of the puzzle. When this happens you may experience pain in the back of the head, forehead, temples, or in a band-like shape around the head due to referral patterns from the suboccipital muscles.
Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief
Here Dr. Cailin adjusts the atlanto-occipital joint, between the base of the skull and the topmost vertebrae. This will increase the mobility of that joint, decrease tension in the muscles, and often provide instant relief or decrease of headache symptoms for a period of time.
Your treatment plan for this will often involve weekly visits for a few weeks along with some at-home exercises and stretches to help maintain progress and prevent symptoms from returning. Once acute symptoms are stable, maintenance adjustments are helpful to stay on top of symptoms and prevent major flare-ups.
