Headaches, including migraines, are caused by a variety of triggers including hormones, tension, food, and more. When a nerve in the back or neck is pinched or impinged, it can trigger acute headaches and may cause migraine symptoms. Chronic and recurring headaches, such as migraines and tension headaches, can become quite serious. These headaches often prevent patients from fully participating in life because of symptoms including severe pain, throbbing, nausea, irritability, and sensitivity to bright light and sound.
If you suffer from frequent headaches that get in the way of your normal activities, you should seek care with Dr. Rozenberg. If you experience migraines more than a couple of times a year, if your headaches or migraines become stronger and more severe, or if they haven’t responded to other treatment, make an appointment for care. Dr. Rozenberg’s treatments for headaches are effective and drug-free. If you suffer from headaches and migraines, make an appointment with Dr. Rozenberg at the Chiropractic Wellness Center for a personalized chiropractic examination and review of your symptoms.
Dr. Rozenberg performs hands-on manual exams to diagnose the specific impingements or subluxations responsible for the headache. Chiropractic adjustments and care can help to reduce inflammation and irritation associated with many causes of headache pain by releasing nerve impingements and promoting circulation in the head and neck.Acupuncture and soft tissue massage or treatment areas release tension in muscles and break up painful trigger points in the shoulders and upper back. In addition, Dr. Rosenberg shares information with her patients, providing lifestyle education to improve posture, alter work environments, and learn other stress reduction techniques to improve overall wellbeing and prevent recurrent headaches. Dr. Rozenberg also teaches her patients therapeutic exercises and stretching techniques at home to reduce stress and tension in the head and neck, preventing headaches in the future.
