Migraines and Headaches Treatment
at Achieve Health and Wellness

person sitting at table with a headacheThe World Health Organization (WHO) states headaches are underestimated, underappreciated, and under-treated throughout the world. Dr. Haitsma is well aware of how headaches can affect every aspect of your life. His experience with horrible, unresolved headache pain, and his subsequent healing through chiropractic care, led him to choose chiropractic as a career.

You don’t have to live with chronic headache pain, there are care options to help relieve your discomfort without medications. You’ll receive the care you need from someone who really understands your pain.

Helping Relieve the Pain

When you come to Achieve Health and Wellness, we don’t assume your headaches are the problem. They may be a symptom of an issue in another area of the body. We do a full computerized assessment of the spine and explore the whole body to address any existing problems. We’ll ask health questions, such as have you been spending a lot of time on the computer, do your eyes feel strained, how’s your quality of sleep? Remember, every part of your body works together to keep you healthy, moving, and functional. When we correct a problem in one area, your whole body benefits.

This is especially true with headaches. Correcting misalignments in the neck, shoulder, and upper back often provides patients with relief. Additional care in other affected areas helps restore the proper flow of energy throughout the nervous system, allowing the body to heal itself as it was designed to do.

Many people think headaches are a “head” problem. While there is some truth to that, in many cases, the pain originates from other areas of the body. That’s why holistic chiropractic care addresses your whole body to discover the source of your pain.

Headache pain is often due to improper neck mechanics or misalignment. When the problem is addressed, a significant number of people find relief from their symptoms. Other issues that may cause headaches include sports injuries, sinus complications, postural stress, caffeine withdrawal, shoulder problems, and more.

When headache pain is left uncared for, migraines may also occur. A migraine is a headache that may cause severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on one side of the head. It’s often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can last for hours to days, with pain so severe it interferes with daily activities.

For some people, a warning symptom known as an aura occurs before or with the headache. An aura may include visual disturbances, such as flashes of light or blind spots, or tingling on one side of the face or in an extremity, or difficulty speaking.

Once your headaches and migraines are brought under control, wellness care is suggested to keep your body functioning properly and prevent recurrence of your symptoms. In addition, we provide home exercises and lifestyle hacks to help your body stay on course. Following your care plan gives you the best options to stay happy, healthy, and pain-free for life.
