Headaches + Migraines

Headache and Migraine Pain


Anyone that has suffered from headaches or migraines knows how the suddenly the onset of a headache can begin. From intense pain and extreme sensitivity to light or sound to nausea and vomiting, all of these symptoms can leave you unable to function normally and enjoy your daily life. Unfortunately, some migraine sufferers also experience other intense symptoms such as visual disturbances, auras, numbness, tingling, clumsiness, and can even have difficulty communicating. While medication may offer some temporary relief, Dr. Danielle Stezel, DC wants to alleviate headaches or migraines naturally and create a program of management that can lead to being free of these painful conditions. Gentle, non-invasive spinal adjustments are offered in our Phoenix chiropractic office as a drug-free way to treat and reduce the frequency of your tension headaches.


Through your visits Dr. Stetzel, DC will work to educate you and and help you identify some common migraine triggers that could be affecting your health and natural ways to provide pain relief. Whether you live right nearby in Phoenix or in another part of the valley like Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler or Paradise Valley we can schedule an evaluation to begin your chiropractic care. Don’t “deal with the pain” and suffer any longer.

Frequent Causes of Migraines and Headaches


Muscle tension. Muscle tension can be a major cause of headaches and is very common in our modern technology age. As more people remain in the same position for a extended amounts of time, such as sitting while working on the computer or watching television, the muscles become fatigued and tighten in response.


Reduced physical activity. As more and more daily activities cause us to be more sedentary this increases muscle tension. Unfortunately, individuals suffering from tense muscles may feel too tired or sore to exercise, which creates a cycle causing symptoms to worsen.


Stress. Stress is another very common cause of headaches or migraines. Between busy schedules, family obligations, and work duties, stress can quickly build up and cause physical symptoms if not managed properly. If you aren’t practicing some sort of stress relief or self-care through exercise, meditation, family time, or another tactic, you are at risk for getting headaches from stress. Over time, chronic stress can also lead to other health problems.


Other common causes can include emotional stress, physical trauma, chemical toxins or nutritional deficiencies. Often times it is a combination of causes which is why a consultation and in-office exam is important to help identify the most likely cause(s).

How Our Headache and Migraine Treatment Works


In-Office Migraine and Headache Treatment


Our chiropractor, Dr. Danielle Stetzel DC, can gently help your nervous system unwind tension to loosen tight neck muscles and ligaments, reducing pressure and muscle tension through the use of Network Spinal chiropractic care. With a great reduction in nervous system tension, you in turn experience fewer headaches. Once we have succeeded in reducing the strain on your neck muscles, ongoing performance of periodic adjustments is a great maintenance practice to maintain spinal and neck alignment, ensuring that tension does not return. The beauty of Network Spinal and chiropractic care is that because our approach is drug-free, you can use it with or instead of traditional migraine and headache treatments!


At-Home Treatment and Maintenance


Staying on top of your condition will give you the best long-lasting results! This means continuing to care for yourself at-home is important. Dr. Danielle Stetzel, DC, can demonstrate specific stretches you can do at home to keep your neck muscles loose and prevent future headaches.


Additionally, we can also offer nutritional advice and recommend supplements for improved health that will work in conjunction with your chiropractic care to help reduce stress, improve overall immunity and promote wellness. Depending on your triggers, we can also suggest ergonomic or lifestyle adjustments that have been found to alleviate muscle tension and promote better posture. All of these changes can add up to greatly improve muscle tension, improve posture and in turn reduce headaches and migraines.
