Headache & Migraine Relief in McKinney

person with headache painHeadaches (including migraines) are a common reason people have to miss work or school—and even if you manage to do your job, this kind of pain makes it difficult to get through the day, let alone live your best life.

At Craig Ranch Chiropractic, we have two decades of experience helping people find relief without needing medications. We’d love to help you, too.

What Causes the Pain?

The first three cervical (neck) nerves go back up into your head, and pressure on any of these nerves can create tension in the head or back of the neck and lead to tension, sinus, or other types of head pain. In Dr. Allam’s experience, about 85-90% of headaches originate in the neck.

How We Help

We start with a surface electromyography (sEMG) scan and a thorough exam to identify areas of tension and nerve interference. Then, we’ll adjust those spinal segments with safe, gentle chiropractic adjustments. When we restore proper movement to the joints, most people experience significant relief.

We may incorporate other modalities, depending on your specific situation. Interferential current or e-stim can help the neck muscles relax. In some cases, decompression therapy is needed to open up the joint spaces and take pressure off the nerves. We may also incorporate myofascial release of the cervical spine or cranial-sacral stretching.

As with all of our care, Dr. Allam will explain what’s causing your symptoms, and he’ll make sure you understand his recommendations for care and how they may benefit you.

When Will I Feel Better?

For patients with chronic headaches, the frequency diminishes significantly within a couple of visits. We’ll also help you identify triggers that lead to neck tension so you can make lifestyle adjustments that help prevent the situation from recurring.
