How chiropractic can help people with headaches?
At Dr. Waldt's office, we take a holistic approach with dealing with headaches, we treat your entire body, not just where it hurts. There can be many factors into what is causing your headaches, some more serious than others, so it is essential we provide an accurate diagnosis.
Our process involved a complimentary consultation which allows us to determine if we are in fact the right people to help you. If we are not, we will be sure to refer you to the right people. If we deem that we can help you, you will move on to a paid examination.
During this examination process, we will perform a range of orthopedic, neurological, and musculoskeletal tests in order to find out what is the problem. Once we have all of this information, we will report back to you with our findings.
At this stage you may be referred for X-rays, which are typically covered by most insurance plans.
From here we will create a personalized treatment plan, designed to help you recover naturally. Our treatment approach will include spinal adjustments, adjustments to the joints of the body, muscle work, plus the prescription of rehab exercises and stretches. We may also provide prescription mediation targeted to help with your headache.
With headaches, we will also look at the lifestyle factors such as stress and ergonomics in order to provide you will a well rounded treatment.
