There are many types of headaches; two of the most common are tension & migraine. At Chiropractor of Columbus, we treat every patient suffering from headache and migraine with the cause in mind.. Muscle spasming in the back of the head can cause pain-like symptoms in the back of the skull. Several techniques can help alleviate symptoms, including spinal manipulation. Similarly, the jaw can trigger headache symptoms. In many cases a simple intra-oral release of the internal & external pterygoid muscles can bring great relief. A hormonal imbalance can trigger migraines & tension headaches; once identified, we can begin rebalancing hormone levels to get levels back under control. Getting at the cause of what is driving the headache is the most important for us to help you find the most permanent relief.
