St. Peters Chiropractor Treates Tension Headaches, Migraines, and Cluster Headaches
Although headaches can be due to a variety of causes, the most common types are tension and migraine. They can vary in intensity and duration and will affect your ability to function in an effective and positive way. Tension headaches are the most common, often described as a dull, achy feeling on one or both sides of the head. They can be the result of stress or poor posture. Migraines are intense and throbbing episodes that often include nausea and sensitivity to light or noise. Another type of less-common headache occurs in clusters, which may occur one to four times per day and tend to strike more often at night.
Pain Relief for St. Peters Whiplash, Neck Pain and Back Pain Sufferers
Another source of headache pain, neck pain and stiffness can be caused by whiplash. Whiplash is typically caused by a car accident, sports injury or other violent collision. If the pain and swelling associated with this injury are not treated properly shortly after the initial event, patients can experience continuing headache pain and neck problems. If you've been in an accident, which resulted in whiplash, our St. Peters chiropractor will examine you closely to determine the full extent of your injury. He may then use ice to reduce swelling and Active Release Technique (ART) to reduce headache pain and restore flexibility.
