Almost everyone will experience a headache someday. An unfortunate 25+ million Americans get hobbled regularly by migraine attacks that prevent them from leaving the house, sometimes for days.

If you’re sick of headaches and migraines, schedule an appointment with St. Louis chiropractor Dr. Sas and get head pain relief treatment that solves the root causes of your headaches: 314-909-9000.

What Causes My Headaches and Migraines?

This is the crucial question your St. Louis chiropractor can diagnose with thorough spinal examination and discussion of your health history. Once we know what triggers your headaches and migraines, Dr. Sas can provide effective chiropractic care and you can make lifestyle changes that reduce the frequency and severity of your headaches.

Chiropractic Care for Tension Headaches

Tension headaches often come with neck pain. In fact, one of the most common problems Dr. Sas sees in most headache patients is misalignment of the neck vertebrae pinching nerves associated with head pain. For instance, spending hours hanging your head over your mobile device can increase both neck pain and headaches. Headaches are also a common symptom of whiplash injury (during sports or a car accident). Our chiropractor can realign the neck vertebrae to release pinched nerves and reduce headaches.

In fact, take a look through our Chiropractor’s YouTube series about neck pain issues that can often be connected with headaches.

Migraine Headache Triggers

Neck misalignments from whiplash injury and poor posture can also aggravate migraine headaches, but there are usually additional triggers to these as well. Keep a migraine journal to record foods, sounds, smells, sleep patterns, hydration, etc. in the hours and days leading up to an attack. In addition to chiropractic care to correct nervous system irregularities, avoid food triggers, chemicals, dehydration and irregular sleep patterns.

Headaches & Migraines Q & A

How can chiropractic care treat my headaches and migraines?

Headaches have many causes and many of those are treatable through chiropractic care. For example, tension headache treatment may involve muscle relaxation techniques, such as massage or adjustments. Tension headaches may be caused by misaligned vertebrae in the upper lumbar or cervical region. One of the first steps in treating recurrent headaches is to isolate the cause or causes of these headaches.

Can Dr. Sas help with tension headaches?

Dr. Sas approaches the treatment of headaches and migraines holistically. What that means is that he treats your immediate needs, such as realigning your vertebrae or treating muscle tension and then he looks at your life and your lifestyle to find the cause or causes of those conditions that cause headaches. By helping you to make sustainable lifestyle changes, Dr. Sas can help you prevent recurring headaches. For example, Dr. Sas may discuss stress and stress management techniques. Stress and tension headaches often are related. By reducing your stress level, the frequency of tension headaches may reduce. The goals for patients who suffer from recurring headaches are relief and prevention. We want you to live a life that is full of quality and that is pain-free without having to use medication.

What kind of adjustments do you provide for sinus headaches?

Gateway Chiropractic offers sinus adjustments for the relief of sinusitis and sinus headaches. There are eight hollow cavities within the human skull that make up the sinuses. Sinus adjustment involves applying pressure that helps trapped fluid in the sinuses dissipate. Sinus adjustment begins with a physical examination, which may include X-rays and other diagnostic tools that help the doctor understand which sinus areas are affected and which need treatment. The process is usually pain-free, but patients may hear or feel a popping sound. The result helps your sinuses function and fluid to drain. When this occurs, sinus headaches disappear.

Words From Happy Gateway Chiropractic Patients

I have seen many chiropractors since college in effort to fix a few different issues, and Dr Sas is the ONLY one who sat down and created a full treatment plan AND TOLD ME ABOUT IT. Personally, I like to know what’s going on when a Dr is treating me, and he has always been very transparent in my care plan. After 6 years I can finally cross my legs sitting down again, and it keeps getting better.

I had A LOT of irrational anxiety about getting chiropractic work done. But Dr. Sas was very down-to-earth and didn’t feed me any b.s. He understood my anxiety, but made sure that I understood he was in this with me and for me. After 4 months, he is now one of my most favorite humans and I look forward to our visits. Oh, and I guess it’s probably important to note that his treatments are actually helping me. So, there’s that.

Dr Sas is amazing!! I went from having back pain daily to being symptom free after about a month in his care. I have seen other chiropractors before and I can’t say enough about how great Dr Sas is compared to the competition. His office staff is incredibly nice and knows everyone by name. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone and everyone to go see Dr Sas at Gateway Chiropractic!
