Headaches can be painful and affect your daily life. Plus, they're not easy to get rid of. At least not by conventional medical methods. The news gets worse or better, depending on how you look at it. At Lake Marion Chiropractic Center we have shared the benefits of chiropractic care with residents of Lakeville and St. Paul, MN, for many years. Many of our patients visit us for the first time looking for relief from headaches and migraines. Read on to learn more about what causes headaches and how our chiropractor treats them.
What is Chiropractic Treatment?
Chiropractic care treats conditions that affect tendons, ligaments, nerves, muscles, and bones. People also go to our chiropractor for migraines and other stress-related ailments.
The unfortunate truth is there is no cure for migraines. Doctors treat them with various medications. These include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), muscle relaxers, and physical therapy. Unfortunately, some come with side effects not worth the migraine relief. Plus, none of these therapies fully address the underlying problem that is causing headaches to occur in the first place.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
People with chronic migraines often seek alternative therapies when traditional medicine fails. Chiropractic care is a safe and effective way of relieving headaches and migraines. Other benefits of chiropractic care include:
- Pain relief also extends to the neck region
- It improves the movement or flexibility of the neck muscles.
Our chiropractor performs spinal manipulation and other adjustments to minimize stress and improve biological function. We also offer soft tissue therapies like:
- Myofascial release therapy
- Massage therapy
- Trigger point therapy

After your adjustment, our chiropractor at Lake Marion Chiropractic Center in Lakeville and St. Paul, MN, will advise you on improving your habits to prevent your headaches from returning. These include adding more B-complex vitamins and water to the diet. Dehydration is a major migraine trigger. Low-impact aerobics and walking are often suggested as well. Rather than masking your headaches with prescription medication, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your headaches before creating a chiropractic care plan to address them.
