The malfunction of the bones in the neck and upper back are an often-overlooked cause of headaches. Because they are so common, you may think that getting them is just a normal part of life. But some headaches are related to an underlying problem, and may be a sign that something’s wrong. When the spinal alignment is not in its normal position, it can affect the very sensitive nerves and vessels in the head. Throbbing headaches are often related to the stretching and/or irritation of the spinal nerves and related tissues in the neck. Over the counter and prescription medications may help to alleviate the symptoms, but they do not correct the underlying cause. You can experience drug-free relief through chiropractic care!
We do things differently in our office. First and foremost, we take time with our patients. On the initial visit one gets a complete neurological examination and X-rays are ordered if needed. We perform our adjustments in a very gentle way. The technique we use is called Activator Methods. It is one of the most highly researched and technically developed ways of adjusting available to chiropractors. This method uses an Activator instrument to make the very specific adjustment without any cracking or twisting of your spine and body.
EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE
We have three Doctors of Chiropractic here in our office with more than 60 years of combined experience. That is a lot of knowledge to rely on! In conjunction with adjusting using the Activator, we utilize many forms of physical therapy modalities such as muscle stimulation, ultrasound, massage therapy, rehabilitation exercise, cold laser, and nutrition to give the patient a comprehensive care plan to get them well as quickly as possible.
We are conveniently located at 1400 Hand Avenue in Ormond Beach. Our extensive office hours accommodate most busy schedules and most insurance plans are accepted. We would be happy to find out your insurance benefits for you. Just give us a call at (386) 673-0400 to see if chiropractic care is right for you!
