Migraine & Headache Relief in Frederick, MD
Are headaches or migraines impacting your daily life? Do you spend more time than you’d like lying down in dark rooms, dealing with the pounding in your head?
You don’t have to suffer in silence.
Traditionally, headaches or migraines have been remedied with over-the-counter or prescription medication. While this may work for some people, it’s not effective for everyone and can cause unpleasant or dangerous side effects.
There is a better way.
Chiropractic care is a natural, safe way to relieve headaches and migraines.
You can begin to feel relief from your headaches after just one adjustment, and with routine care, many patients see their symptoms vanish.
One Headache Sufferer’s Chiropractic Success Story
“I had been suffering from constant headaches. I always had a feeling of pressure in the back of my head. Sometimes, this pressure would cause me to feel dizzy and/or sick to my stomach. I had these headaches for 2-3 months before seeking chiropractic care. I was also suffering from lower back pain. This had been on and off over the past 4 years or so. The headaches started interfering with my work especially when I felt dizzy. Two to three times over the last 4 years I would wake up in extreme pain and be unable to move.
I was using over-the-counter meds throughout the week for the headaches. On the occasions when I woke up in severe pain I went to the ER. They always did the same thing – prescribed muscle relaxers and pain killers. When the headaches persisted, I contacted my primary care physician – she prescribed more pain killers – said ‘It’s probably just a pulled tendon in your neck.’
I started care with Dr. Lipinski and I no longer have constant headaches. Some lower back pain that I didn’t even realize I had was gone. My back doesn’t always have that tired feeling. I can also travel long distances in the car much more comfortably. I feel like the 25 year old that I am rather than having added years to my life because of constant pain. Your body puts up with a lot – most of which you don’t even realize until it’s gone.”
How Does Chiropractic Care Help Headaches & Migraines?
Oftentimes, headaches and migraine pain are the result of nerves getting pinched by your spinal column, which is out of alignment.
These pinched nerves decrease blood flow to your brain, causing the pain that we recognize as a headache.
In addition, tight, damaged muscles in the neck and shoulders can lead to tension headaches.
Chiropractic adjustments relieve tension in these muscles and realign the spinal column so nerves are no longer pinched and blood can flow freely.
