Chiropractic Relief for Headaches in Warwick

Let Us Find the Source of Your Headache

We know that a persistent or recurring headache can wreak havoc on your life, not only ruining your day but impacting your outlook on the days to come. 

Our chiropractic team’s goal is to trace the cause of your headache and any related symptoms so we can create a comprehensive, drug-free care plan to bring you comfort and freedom from pain.

Headaches With a Hidden Cause

Sometimes a headache is a symptom of pain somewhere else. Cervicogenic headaches are caused by referred pain from the neck. 

This type of headache pain tends to be achy or dull but can sometimes be more intense. It’s typically on only one side of the head, face, and neck. However, not everyone feels any pain in their neck with this type of headache, which can make it tougher to diagnose.

The pain of a cervicogenic headache might become worse when you cough or make a sudden movement. It can be intermittent or persistent. Untreated, a cervicogenic headache may become chronic, but care from a chiropractor can help manage your symptoms and bring you relief.

How Can a Chiropractor Help With Headaches?

Our goal at your first appointment is to learn what you’re going through and whether we can help relieve your headache.

In your initial consultation, your chiropractor will discuss your symptoms, ask about your lifestyle, and talk about your goals for treatment. 

Next, your doctor will perform a chiropractic examination, testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend, and other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. That said, we will not do anything during your assessment without your consent.

Sometimes, we’ll take X-rays as part of our full evaluation, so we can rule out more serious conditions, including anything that may make a chiropractic adjustment unsuitable for you.

Sharing Our Recommendations

During your appointment, your chiropractor will give you a report of findings to answer 3 key questions:

  • Can you help me?
  • What do you recommend that I do to get better?
  • How much is it going to cost?

If we believe we can help, we’ll explain our recommended treatment plan. If you have a condition that requires care from other providers, the doctor will let you know.

Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment at the end of the appointment. This often includes both rapid manipulation and slower mobilizations at different points along your cervical spine that may be contributing to your headache. Our recommendations might include physiotherapy treatments or soft tissue therapies.

Treatment is interactive, so you can always express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment or ask questions about the procedure.

Finally, we’ll provide you with a wellness program to follow at home that may include stretches and changes to your lifestyle that may support your relief from headaches.

Chiropractic works best as a phased approach, beginning by addressing pain, progressing to corrective care, and finally becoming about maintaining wellness through a series of appointments. Learn more about what to expect from chiropractic care.
