Safe, Natural Headache Treatment in Salina

Get relief from chronic pain with an all-natural headache treatment plan from your Salina chiropractor.

Millions of Americans suffer from chronic headaches. If you’re one of them, you know how difficult it can be to find a safe, effective, and natural headache treatment.

That’s what you’ll get from your Salina chiropractor.

Start with Getting a Proper Diagnosis

To relieve your headache pain, your chiropractor will first need to perform diagnostic testing, including:

  • X-rays, MRIs, CT Scans
  • A physical evaluation
  • Review of your health history
  • Referrals for additional testing as needed

Diagnostics will help your Salina chiropractor find the root cause of your headaches. Without that information, it is impossible to provide long-term treatment of your pain.

Types of Headaches

Understanding that there are different types of headaches helps your Salina chiropractor choose treatment options that fit your needs. The three most common types of headaches include:

  • Migraines
  • Tension headaches
  • Cluster headaches

Less common culprits include:

  • Tumors
  • Chemical imbalances
  • Injury
  • Scar tissue build-up

Some of these issues can have led to serious health complications, which is why your chiropractor won’t simply treat your pain. Finding the root cause can protect your overall health and even your life.

Your Custom Headache Treatment Plan

After obtaining a diagnosis, your chiropractor will recommend one or more therapies.

Diet and Lifestyle Changes

Some headaches and migraines can be caused by:

  • Food sensitivities
  • A sedentary lifestyle
  • Poor posture
  • TMJ disorder (a painful disorder of the jaw joints)
  • Bright lights and loud sounds
  • Smells

You and your chiropractor can identify your triggers and outline ways to deal with them. For instance, you can cut out certain foods, incorporate more exercise into your life, and practice good ergonomics in the workplace.

Acupuncture Therapy

Utilized for centuries, this treatment has now been embraced by millions of Americans as their treatment of choice for a variety of conditions, as well as overall health maintenance. Dr. Maria Rapp is a licensed acupuncturist and has treated many patients for a host of ailments. Laura Stegman, LaC has a Master's of Science in Acupuncture from the Colorado School Of Traditional Chinese Medicine, specializing in women's health. Acupuncture is great by itself or used in conjunction with chiropractic, nutrition, cold laser, detoxification, and the adoption of a healthier lifestyle.

Massage Therapy

Sore, tight muscles can be the result of stress, spinal misalignment, or scar tissue. Getting the muscles to loosen and relax is key to reducing and preventing tension headaches. Your massage therapist can perform a plethora of massage techniques that will give you some relief.

Spinal Adjustments and Decompression Therapy

A misaligned spine can lead to nerve compression and muscle tension. Regular chiropractic adjustments allow your body to function optimally, while decompression therapy takes pressure off of the nerves.

Chiropractic Care in Salina – the Best Pain Relief Option

To eliminate their headache pain, many turn to over-the-counter or prescription pain medications. Unfortunately, drugs can have dire consequences, including organ damage, dependence, and addiction.

Chiropractic headache treatment provides fast relief that can give you long-term results without any of the harmful side-effects of medications. It’s effective because it creates harmony within your body and treats the root cause of your pain.

Drs. Jeff and Maria Rapp want to help you get out of pain and achieve optimal health. With regular chiropractic treatment and holistic healthcare, you’ll feel better than ever!
