Headache & Migraine Treatment
At Baeks Chiropractic Health Center, we know that pain is always a symptom of a larger problem. If you're living with painful headaches, our chiropractor in Chino will work to pinpoint the root cause and find a path to long-term pain relief. Our chiropractic and acupuncture treatments include techniques that relieve stress, inflammation, tension, imbalance, and other common causes of headaches and migraines.
Headaches Treated By Our Chiropractor in Chino
Dr. Alex Baek, our chiropractor in Chino CA, knows from experience that headaches come in many forms. While all headaches are characterized by head pain, they may be localized or general, long or brief, and may or may not be associated with other symptoms. It helps to narrow down the most common types of headaches, all of which respond to chiropractic care:
Migraines – While migraines vary in duration and frequency, they're often associated with extreme sensitivity to light and sound, constant painful throbbing, and possible aural or visual hallucinations
Tension Headaches – If you feel a burning sensation in your shoulders and head, you may suffer from tension headaches, which are caused when tight muscles place pressure on the nerves in your head and neck
Mixed Headaches – Unfortunately, some patients get symptoms from both worlds: migraines and tension headaches. This makes sense because both types of headaches can be caused by stress and environmental factors
Cluster Headaches – These localized episodes may occur behind an eye or sinus cavity, and they often occur in brief but painful spurts throughout the day or week
Chiropractic Adjustments for Headaches in Chino
If your headaches in Chino are caused by tension or poor support in your upper back muscles, your chiropractor may want to perform a manual adjustment to rebalance your spine. Spinal adjustments allow us to release built-up fluid and tension, reduce pressure on the nerves in your head and neck, and correct the position of your spine for maximum support and stability. Our Chino chiropractor may also offer lifestyle advice, such as ergonomic changes to your workplace or stress management techniques.
Acupuncture Pain Relief for Headaches & Migraines
During acupuncture sessions, we harness the human body's own power to relieve its own pain and heal. Your acupuncturist will stimulate "acupoints" throughout your body to encourage the flow of energy and release any tension that may be causing pain.
Whether you have tension headaches from incorrect posture habits or migraines as a result of an auto accident injury, our goal is to correct the source of damage and help you heal. Call us today to schedule an appointment with our Chino chiropractor.
