How does my provider find the cause of headaches?
To find possible causes of your headaches and develop a treatment plan, a Greenlight Chiropractic & Wellness Lab provider reviews your symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle habits. They complete a physical exam and may recommend a CT scan or another imaging procedure to detect or rule out underlying medical problems.
How are headaches treated?
The Greenlight Chiropractic & Wellness Lab team treats headaches and migraines using chiropractic compression methods. They also provide massage therapy to relax tense tissues associated with headache pain.
During chiropractic treatments, you rest comfortably on a chiropractic table, and your doctor realigns your spine by placing pressure on targeted areas of your neck, back, or other tissues. Doing this relieves discomfort naturally. The treatment is painless and highly effective for long-lasting comfort.
