Treating Neck Pain
Neck pain has become increasingly common. There are many reasons why patients experience neck pain, but one of the most common is actually quite surprising for many—bad posture. With that said, neck pain is also often a result of acute injuries.
Regardless of the reason for your neck pain, you’ll want to schedule an appointment with Achieve. We provide holistic care that helps our patients to overcome painful neck conditions. We will expertly diagnose and treat your neck pain.
Types of Headaches
Headaches come in different types. Each of these headache types respond differently to treatment methods, so it’s important to get a better understanding of what type of headache you are experiencing. From there, treatment will be much easier.
Tension headaches are very common and aren’t as severe. They still cause discomfort, but they generally don’t interfere with day-to-day activities.
Sinus headaches are caused by inflamed sinuses due to illness or allergies. They may accompany a runny nose, fever, and swelling of the face.
Cluster headaches are more severe and chronic. They can last as long as a couple weeks or months and are generally on one side of the head. They are comparable to migraines.
Rebound headaches are due to overuse of prescription or over-the-counter medication or even prolonged overuse of caffeine. They can be avoided by limiting medication intake.
Migraines are sometimes confused with tension headaches. Migraines can be completely debilitating and can cause vomiting, loss of vision, nausea, and more.
Chiropractic Treatment Options
Chiropractic care is a great choice for pain relief caused by headaches, along with being an excellent way to prevent headaches in the future. Dr. Fisher can perform regular chiropractic adjustments that reduce or even eliminate the buildup of muscle tension in the shoulders and neck (which are the primary causes of tension headaches).
Types of treatments may include:
- Functional rehab
- Corrective care
- Home exercises
- Massage therapy
- Daily vitamin supplements or a change in diet

Adjustments for Headaches and Migraines
Adjustments are an excellent option for those that are suffering from headaches and migraines. They help to provide quick relief and even resolve underlying issues that are leading to headaches and migraines, to begin with. But how do adjustments work? And do you need one?
How Do Spinal Adjustments Work?
The spine is a very important component of the body that connects to different areas, which includes the nerve center. A misalignment can cause pain, discomfort, and other issues. It can even lead to headaches. Spinal adjustments can help to address certain forms of headaches by addressing the misalignments that lead to muscle tension (and, in turn, headaches).
There are a few different ways that spinal adjustments can be performed. Often, a chiropractor will use a special instrument or their own hands. They also may use a motorized table that separates slowly and moves outwards. This helps to stretch out the spine and provide space for the discs of the patient. It also helps with relieving tension.
While you may expect some soreness, spinal adjustments are generally painless and are a non-invasive treatment option.
Do I Need an Adjustment?
If you are experiencing painful headaches and/or migraines, you’ll want to schedule an appointment for an examination and consultation with Dr. Fisher at Achieve Health and Wellness. He will help to determine the underlying issue causing your pain and discomfort and see if chiropractic adjustments are the right option to meet your needs.
What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is a treatment method that has been around for thousands of years. It is used to help in a variety of different ways, including pain relief, stress and anxiety reduction, rehabilitation, relaxation, and overall wellness.
As massages can help with reducing stress and anxiety while also promoting relaxation and calm, massages can help with the treatment of certain forms of headaches.
What We Do During Massage Therapy
We provide different types of massage therapy at Achieve Health and Wellness. Some of these include active release technique and myofascial/trigger point release therapy. This is the breaking down of soft tissue in order to help with mobilization. It increases circulation, breaks up painful adhesions and scar tissue, and eases pain and tension.
What are the Benefits of Massage Therapy?
There are some excellent benefits of massage therapy (including the reduction or elimination of chronic pain due to headaches). Massage therapy has been found to be an effective treatment option for patients with lower back pain, cancer, heart bypass surgery, anxiety, carpal tunnel syndrome, and high blood pressure.
Some benefits we’ve found include:
- Reduced muscle tension.
- Improved recovery of soft tissue injuries.
- Stimulation of the lymphatic system.
- Reduction of stress hormones.
- Improved circulation.
- Increased joint mobility and flexibility.
- Improved skin tone.
