Headache & Migraine Relief

If you experience headaches or migraines, the discomfort can prevent you from completing certain tasks and affect your quality of life. At Dixie Injury & Rehab in Louisville and Shively, KY, we provide various treatments to relieve your symptoms and help you feel your best. Before visiting us, learn how chiropractic care can be effective for headaches and migraines below:


Types of Headaches

There are more 200 types of headaches, however, some occur more than others. Tension headaches are the most common, affecting 40% of adults worldwide. These headaches are often caused by tension in the muscles and shoulders. Migraines are the second most common type of headache. The exact cause isn't known, but spinal misalignment can contribute to these headaches. Along with that, they can also be caused by certain activities, foods, and sleep disorders.

Chiropractic Care for Headaches

When you visit us, our chiropractor will determine the type of headaches you’re experiencing and their cause. After, we will develop a treatment plan for your specific needs. Your care plan may include:

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments can do more than just relieve back pain. They can also provide relief from headaches and migraines. Spinal misalignments can cause muscle tension, reduce blood flow, and interfere with your nervous system function. These issues can cause headaches or migraines. Chiropractic adjustments can be used to correct misalignments, which can also reduce the severity and frequency of your headaches or migraines. 

Therapeutic Exercises

Our chiropractor may recommend therapeutic exercises as part of your treatment plan. We will teach you how to do the exercises and you'll continue to do them at home. The movements can reduce muscle tension, help you maintain proper alignment, and make any weak muscles stronger. As a result, you should experience fewer headaches and migraines.

Diet and Lifestyle Advice 

Your diet and lifestyle often contribute to headaches. Too much screen time and a lack of exercise can lead to headaches, while certain foods can trigger migraines. Our chiropractor will discuss your current diet and lifestyle with you and recommend changes that will help reduce the frequency of your headaches. These changes may include avoiding certain foods, taking supplements, and beginning a new exercise routine. 

Postural Correction

Poor posture can often lead to tension headaches and migraines. We can utilize chiropractic adjustments and stretches that can improve your posture. Our chiropractor can also show you stretches that you can do at home and suggest recommendations to practice proper posture to alleviate your headaches.
