Dr. Wallace Wade, Chiropractor Citrus Park FL
There are two main types of headaches: tension and migraines headaches.
Dr. Wade Explains the Cause of Headaches
Tension headaches involve abnormal pressure and stress in the upper neck or back of the head. Irritation of the spinal joints and nerves at the base of the skull cause pain in the back of the head.
Migraine headaches involve circulation from the vertebral artery which travels through the spinal vertebra into the base of the brain. The circulation can be affected by abnormal nerve stimulation by the autonomic nervous system. This part of the nervous systems controls the dilation or constriction of arteries.
Tension headaches are characterized by:
- Pain at the base of the skull
- Increased pain with movement of the head
- Pain in the temporal or side regions of the head
Migraine headaches are characterized by:
- Severe pain on one or both sides of the head
- Upset stomach
- Blurred vision
Dr. Wade has been practicing chiropractic in Citrus Park, FL 33625 area for over 20 years. In that time he has treated thousands of patients with stress and migraine related headaches.
How to Stop Headaches
Gentle chiropractic care produces 3 effects which can significantly reduce muscle tension or migraine headaches.
Chiropractic treatment helps to:
- Release joint pressure
- Soothing effect on the nerves
- Increased joint motion
- Muscle relaxation
- Artery dilation
- Increased neck movement
How Chiropractic can Relieve Headaches
The same nerves are responsible for the constriction or dilation of the arteries and veins of the head and neck that cause muscle tension or migraine headaches.
How Interferential Current Relieves Headaches
Interferential current therapy involves the placement of two electrodes on the skin at a painful area or the spinal nerve root associated with a painful region. Alternating currents of medium frequency are applied through the electrodes to the area. The currents rise and fall at different frequencies.
The low frequency of the interferential current causes inhibition or habituation of the nervous system, which results in muscle relaxation, suppression of pain and acceleration of healing.
The pulsed mode can aid in reducing the swelling and inflammation in the tissue. The tetanize mode acts as an electric nerve block to stop your pain and thereby decreasing your headaches.

How Electric Muscle Stimulation Can Relieve Headaches?
Electric muscle stimulation mimics the body’s nervous system by sending safe, low frequency electrical pulses to the low back causing the muscle to contract and increasing temperature and blood circulation. The same natural process of the body to repair injuries works with EMS to relieve other common nervous system disorders, including constant muscle tightness, numbness of legs, and severe or chronic back pain.
