Headache and Migraine Treatment in Bel Air, MD

Do You Suffer from Headaches or Migraines?

Are you one of 9 out of 10 Americans that suffer from headaches?

No two headaches are created equal.  Headaches can be occasional or, some frequent, some are dull and throbbing, and some cause debilitating pain and nausea. They can be light or sound sensitive.

Treatment for Headaches

What do you do when you suffer from a pounding headache? Do you grit your teeth and carry on? Lie down? Pop a pill and hope the pain goes away? There is a better alternative.

Just as there are many types of headaches, there are just as many different treatments. As with most things, all treatment plans need to start with a thorough exam and diagnosis. At that point our doctors can prescribe the best path for you. Be it chiropractic care to restore alignment and mobility to pain generating joints of your head and neck, massage and physical therapy to treat ailing muscles or even acupuncture. Our goal is to stop the headaches or migraines, heal the area, and prevent them from happening.

If headaches are controlling your life, call Dr. Lee 443-512-0025 to live pain-free!

Headache and Migraine Treatment Testimonials

Before I went to Susquehanna Spine & Rehab I had a lot of headaches and my neck got stiff. Now I do my exercises at Susquehanna Spine & Rehab. I feel better, my neck is better, and I don’t get a lot of headaches. Dr. Lee is a great doctor and he helps me every week and gives me more exercises every day.
Drew, 11— (Update on Drew:  He is now in college.  After his initial treatment plan to control the cause of his headaches he moved monthly visits prevented any serious headaches.  He is still headache free)

I started treatment at Susquehanna Spine & Spine in August 2011. I have chronic migraines and have been dealing with them for years now. Over the years, I have been to several doctors, been on several medications, and tried everything possible to find what could be triggering so many migraine attacks every month. I finally decided to give chiropractic care a try, which was completely new to me. Dr. Lee and the staff are not only knowledgeable, but so friendly and I quickly became very comfortable here. The frequency of my headaches has decreased significantly each month since I started treatment. I am so happy I found out about this place! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is in need of any type of chiropractic care or rehab.
Angie, 40

Science Shows

  • Research shows spinal manipulation – the primary form of care provided by doctors of chiropractic – to be the most effective treatment for headaches and migraines.
  • Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center in Durham, NC, found that spinal manipulation resulted in almost immediate improvement for those headaches that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension-type headache than a commonly prescribed medication.
  • Also, a study in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that spinal manipulative therapy is an effective treatment for tension headaches and that those who ceased chiropractic treatment after four weeks experienced a sustained therapeutic benefit in contrast with those patients who received a commonly prescribed medication.

What Can You Do to Prevent Headaches ?

  • If you spend a large amount of time in one fixed position, such as in front of a computer, on a sewing machine, typing or reading, take a break and stretch every 30 minutes to one hour. The stretches should take your head and neck through a comfortable range of motion.
  • Low-impact exercise may help relieve the pain associated with primary headaches. However, if you are prone to dull, throbbing headaches, avoid heavy exercise. Engage in such activities as walking and low-impact aerobics.
  • Avoid teeth clenching. The upper teeth should never touch the lowers, except when swallowing. This results in stress at the temporo mandibular joints (TMJ) – the two joints that connect your jaw to your skull – leading to TMJ irritation and a form of tension headaches.
  • Drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day to help avoid dehydration, which can lead to headaches.
  • Avoid triggers such as certain foods, bright lights, loud noises, changes in sleep patterns and medications
