Chiropractor Headache Relief
Dr. Lisa Meyers is a leading chiropractor for headache relief in South Bend. Dr. Meyers and the staff at Active Health and Wellness Center are experienced in treating tension headaches, migraine headaches, and chronic headaches. Headache is one of the most common forms of pain – almost everyone has experienced a headache at some time.
Headaches can stem from several underlying causes, the most common of which is a tension that results in tight muscles in the shoulders, neck, and/or jaw. The daily stresses of everyday life are enough to cause tension headaches in both adults and children. Patients experiencing tension headaches may feel steady, mild to moderate pain along with pressure around the back and sides of the head and neck. Muscles in the neck and shoulders may also feel tender. Ninety percent of headaches are a result of muscle tension and alignment issues.
Pain from migraine headaches can vary from moderate to severe and worsen with motion, light, and noise. These headaches can last from several hours to several days. Chronic headaches can be made up of a series of underlying tension and/or migraine headaches. Headaches can also be a sign of a more serious condition. As an experienced chiropractor for headache relief, Dr. Meyers is skilled at diagnosing the cause of headaches and recommending a targeted treatment plan.

Using techniques such as Diversified, Cox Flexion/Distraction, Activator, and Thompson, Dr. Meyers performs safe, gentle adjustments that are effective for many conditions.
