Headaches and migraines are often the results of spinal misalignment. A contributing factor to spinal misalignment is sitting in improper positioning for an extended time. We can help to treat your spinal misalignment without the need for medication by using chiropractic techniques, massage, exercise, and nutritional counseling.

We can design special corrective exercises for you to perform at home that can ease the pain of muscles, tendons, and bones.
Migraine headache therapy often combines chiropractic care, massage, and some form of nutritional counseling. Certain foods can easily trigger a migraine or headache depending on the patient. They are caffeine, sugar, alcohol, chocolate, salt, cured meats, aged cheeses, fermented foods, and very cold foods. Our chiropractors can design a diet that will help you avoid these foods and include ones that do not aggravate migraines. The diet may include vegetables, water, brown rice, grass-fed meats, cooked fruits, natural sweeteners, and whole-grain breads.
Massage therapy can help with migraines by relaxing tension in the body. It improves circulation, reduces pain, and increases blood flow to the head. We offer a variety of treatments that help with chronic pain. Often physical exercise and relaxation techniques help patients manage pain and reduce the severity of their migraines. Migraines can be treated with combinations of chiropractic therapy, exercises, massage, and nutritional counseling. We customize our treatments to be unique to you.
