5 Powerful Ways Cooper Chiropractic Can Give You Headache Relief
The International Headache Society has identified over 150 types of headaches stemming from a wide variety of causes. Due to so many factors at play, it takes proper diagnostics and an extensive medical treatment kit to eliminate headaches.
Dr. Stanton Cooper of Cooper Chiropractic Treatment Center in Palm Bay has a lengthy list of chiropractic techniques he can apply to minimize or eliminate headaches without drugs or surgery. Out of all his methods and modalities, here are his top five.
Cervical Spinal Adjustment
Many types of headaches can be alleviated by a cervical spinal adjustment (a neck adjustment). Said adjustments help your body release tension, correct misalignments and neural misfirings triggering headaches, provide both immediate and lasting pain relief, and cut down on the number of headaches you suffer through.
For patients who prefer a gentler alternative, an activator adjustment is a great alternative with equally satisfying results. Activator adjustments involve a t-shaped tool that applies gentle precision tweaks to your spine, nudging everything back in place and putting an end to headaches.
Like an adjustment, massage addresses many types of headaches as well. Massage works to alleviate tension, help your head and neck recover from injury when present, release trigger points, and alleviate stress. Dr. Cooper may suggest pairing massage with chiropractic for maximum relief and lasting results.
Ample research shows that acupuncture can provide headache relief by stimulating nerves. Your body takes this cue to release endorphins, which help moderate pain levels. Acupuncture is also shown to discourage future headaches.
Dr. Cooper offers two forms of acupuncture: traditional and laser. Traditional involves one-time use needs expertly applied to areas related to triggering headaches. Laser acupuncture, which has been around for decades utilizes a laser pen to apply the same stimulation to the same locations.
Nutrition & Stretching
Sometimes the best solutions are the simplest. You can protect yourself from headaches by including some food while avoiding others. Some of the top headache triggers include caffeine, alcohol, artificial sweeteners, preservatives and processed foods. Dr. Cooper will guide you through your options and take out the guesswork so you don’t have to be your own nutritionist.
There are neck and back stretches Dr. Cooper can guide you through as well. It’s far better than watching online videos and hoping you’re doing it right or following advice that doesn’t match your health needs.
