Headaches and Migraine Relief

Treatment from Our Chiropractor in Durham, NC

Most people will suffer from headaches in their lifetime, with 39 million Americans suffering from migraine headaches. These can have devastating consequences, and can negatively impact your quality of life if they continue to occur on a daily basis. For people with chronic headaches, relief is the biggest goal, but who can you turn to for relief? Is there anyone that can treat the underlying cause instead of simply masking the symptoms of pain? Fortunately, there is help available from a trained chiropractor.

At Peterson Chiropractic, we're here to help residents of Durham, NC, and the surrounding areas find relief from their headaches and migraine episodes. We know that these can be challenging to treat, and can continue to reoccur if the underlying cause is not treated. That's why we offer comprehensive chiropractic care and treatment tailored to fit your needs and manage your pain.

Headaches and Migraine Relief

What Causes Headaches and Migraines?

Headaches and migraines have both been around for centuries, but there is still no clear answer for why humans get them. Nevertheless, headaches and migraines most typically occur due to tension and stress-related pain.

Tension builds up in the back of the neck and upper back muscles, which can compress the optic nerve and lead to headaches, such as cervical neuralgia. Migraines can leave you feeling devasted and in pain, sometimes for days, with non-stop throbbing.

Both headaches and migraines, however, can be treated with the help of a chiropractor.

What Is the Best Treatment for Headaches?

Headaches that are caused by tension and stress can be treated with the help of chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy. In particular, massaging the base of the skull and releasing knots of tension in that area can greatly reduce headache pain.

Chiropractic adjustments can also help alleviate pain from headaches and migraines, making it so that the spine realigns itself the way it is naturally supposed to sit, taking away pain from surrounding compressed nerves and tissue.

In addition, acupuncture has also been shown to boost endorphins that can combat headaches and migraines.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon with a buldging disc. I was in constant pain. There were times it was painful to turn over in bed. I could not bend to tie my shoes. The most painful thing was that my active lifestyle was completely changing. I could not play golf or exercise without pain. I was treated by a physical therapist, and then a chiropractor for about nine months. This treatment temporarily relieved a lot of my pain. Dr. Peterson told me the DRX-9000 had helped others with my condition. After the first two weeks of painless treatment I could tell a difference. I now play golf without pain. I just played in a three day tournament. I can even tie my own shoes. I do recommend this treatment."
