Chronic headaches are rarely the result of a single cause; they are the logical end of a sequence in which causes synergize and evolve over years. No one deserves to have their quality of life impeded or defined by a struggle against headaches.
Our consultation is a two-way conversation, not a one-way examination. We analyze your headaches together by collecting data and creating a map of your pain as it has changed over the years. Your personal history of headaches is our starting point: Is there any identifiable point of origin and how/when did they start? Headaches could begin resulting from singular trauma, as in a car accident, or repetitive stress and degeneration, brought on by poor posture while working at a computer. What activities aggravate or onset the pain? How are your workplace, lifestyle and recreation habits contributing? The more information we collect, the finer we hone in on the cause of your pain, making for a more effective treatment.
Our practice is focused on treating misalignments of the spine, which irritate nerves that control blood flow into the head, a signal contributor to head pain. By restoring this alignment and treating the supportive tissues, we ease pressure and irritation that is brought on by the wear and tear of your daily life. Once your headache has been correctly diagnosed, we offer you a full range of treatment modalities including spinal adjustment, trigger point therapy and deep tissue massage, and counseling on posture and lifestyle changes that can reduce and ultimately eliminate your headaches. Do not let years go by while the causes and symptoms overlap and become a tangled mess- we will help you get to the bottom of your headache pain. Call our office in Fremont today at (510) 656-9077.
