Headaches and Migraines

When it comes to headaches and migraines, there is no ”one size fits all” treatment. There are approximately 150 different types of headaches. Varying types are brought on by unique circumstances, have distinctive sets of symptoms, and often require different approaches to treatment. Migraines, for example, are usually accompanied by a pounding headache, nausea, and sensitivity to light.

A few of the most common types include:

  • tension headaches
  • migraines
  • mixed headache syndrome
  • cluster headaches
  • sinus headaches
  • acute headaches
  • hormone headaches
  • chronic progressive headache

Many pharmaceutical drugs have been designed to alleviate pain. These medications numb the nervous system, masking symptoms, but fail to address the root cause of your pain. As well, prolonged use can also be highly damaging to vital organs, such as the liver and kidneys.

Our Approach

Because of the wide variety of types and causes of headaches, we make sure to examine sufferers using many different tools. From neurologic testing to laboratory workups, we study each person individually to find the true source of the problem. We can then tailor our treatment to those exact needs.

Very often, headaches stem from misalignment of the spinal bones in the neck. Subluxations have an enormous impact on the nerves, muscles, and blood supply to the head. Various health issues can also be hidden culprits – including digestive problems, hormonal imbalances, immunologic issues and others. Our comprehensive examination ensures that we find the root cause of the problem, in order to get you feeling better.

We are proud to have helped so many of our patients beat their headaches and finally live drug free! Patients often find immediate relief with their first adjustment. For some, especially those with chronic headaches/migraines, it may be a more gradual process.

What Our Patients Say

“Since I was about 12 years old, I have sought medical assistance for persistent headaches . . . but no remedies seemed to last.  Your treatments helped me significantly and my usage of aspirin and similar painkillers has dropped from a daily occurrence to occasional. I really appreciate your candid advice and your courteous and professional help.” ~ Lorand S.

 “I was recommended by a friend to see Dr. Norm for my daily headaches that required constantly taking Aspirin and Tylenol.  The headaches stopped almost immediately after my first treatment.  And now with regular treatments they hardly ever return.” ~Tracey S.

“Results!  I continue to see Dr. Hoffman, because I get results and improvement.  I have to say my life is much better because of chiropractic care.  I’ve experienced improved sleep, weeks without headaches, improved memory and even my prescription for my eyeglasses got better!”  ~ Leeanne H.
