Headaches

What are headaches?

Headaches refer to the pain you experience in your head, neck, or jaw. Headaches are very common, but there are many types that cause different symptoms, including:

Tension headaches

Tension headaches are the most common headache and develop due to tightness in the muscles of your neck. This type of headache causes mild-to-moderate pain that can be acute or chronic.

Migraines

Migraines cause intense pain, usually localized to one side of the head, that can last as long as three days. With migraines, you may also experience nausea, vomiting, and/or light sensitivity.

Cluster headaches

Cluster headaches cause the most severe head pain. During an episode, you may experience sharp, shooting pain behind one eye. The pain may last a few minutes or a few hours, and the pain may return frequently over a set period of time.

Sinus headaches

Sinus headaches usually result from allergies due to inflammation or pressure in your sinus cavity. 

Whatever type of headache you have, Dr. Weinberg can create a treatment plan to help you get relief from your pain.

How can chiropractic care alleviate my headaches?

By improving the alignment of your spine, Dr. Weinberg relieves any muscle tension that may be contributing to your head pain. He also improves nerve signaling and blood flow throughout your body, and this may also alleviate your discomfort.

Chiropractic care has been shown to be an effective, drug-free treatment for tension headaches, migraines, and headaches that result from neck pain. 

What can I expect during a consultation for my headaches?

Dr. Weinberg is a very compassionate and experienced chiropractor. Before he begins any treatment, he conducts a comprehensive evaluation to assess your health, determine the type of headache you have, and pinpoint the underlying cause. He then develops your personalized treatment plan for the management of your headaches.

Depending on the cause of your headache, Dr. Weinberg may complement spinal manipulation with other techniques to help you get relief from your pain. These could include:

  • Active release technique (ART) muscle work
  • Massage therapy
  • Traction
  • Electrotherapy
  • Flexion/distraction

Dr. Weinberg is board certified in physical therapy modalities and may also develop a rehabilitation program for you to ensure you stay healthy and active for better overall quality of life.
