Persistent headaches make it difficult to focus on anything else. If you have other debilitating symptoms along with headaches, such as the nausea and hallucinations associated with migraines, immediate relief becomes essential. At Omni Wellness Center, we offer comprehensive chiropractic treatments that help to relieve headaches and migraines. Whether you need immediate, short-term relief or you are looking to ease the symptoms of a long-term condition, our Charlotte, NC chiropractic team is here for you.
Regular trips to the chiropractor will minimize aches and pains associated with a variety of symptoms and conditions, but if you need relief for headaches in particular, visit Omni Wellness Center to get started on a pain treatment and management plan that will target your debilitating symptoms. We work with you to find the solutions that work for your body. Your Charlotte chiropractor will tailor your treatment program to suit your needs and target the source of your symptoms. Recurring headaches usually fall under one of a few major categories.
Most headaches are categorized as tension headaches. Fortunately, our most popular chiropractic services already target the sources of these common, recurring headaches. Poor posture, whiplash, and long periods of sitting will cause tension headaches. Symptoms include a dull ache on the side(s) of your head or behind your eyes, which gradually gets worse throughout the day. We use massage therapy to target trigger points and release pressure in your spinal column. Chiropractic alignments also allow us to realign your discs and tendons, to prevent the muscle spasms that cause tension headaches.
"Rebound" headaches are actually caused by the overuse of medications used to suppress symptoms. If you take analgesics to relieve your headaches or other painful symptoms on a regular basis, you may have developed recurring rebound headaches as a result. Instead of relying on over-the-counter medications that wear off and cause long-term side effects such as rebound headaches, come into Omni Wellness Center for a drug-free pain relief option. We supplement our chiropractic treatment options with acupuncture therapy, which helps relieve and reduce the pain associated with fibromyalgia and other chronic, painful conditions.
Migraines are severe, throbbing headaches that stop your day in its tracks. Severe migraines also cause a variety of other symptoms, including extreme light and noise sensitivity, nausea, auditory and visual hallucinations, speech problems, and tingling in the extremities. At Omni Wellness Center, we know that migraines may last for days and recur for years. Migraines are caused by tension in your blood vessels, so we use acupuncture and chiropractic techniques to stimulate blood flow and relieve this tension. The same treatment options also improve or minimize some of the specific sources of migraines, including poor sleep, stress, and medications.
If you suffer from any of these or related conditions, please call us at (704) 392-9999 today! We can help provide drug-free pain relief options to help get you back on track. Come visit Omni Wellness Center to learn more about your treatment options.
