Headaches

Headaches plague many people from time to time. When this type of pain occurs, it often becomes difficult to accomplish even simple tasks causing many sufferers run to the medicine cabinet in the hopes of alleviating the discomfort. However, pills only bring temporary relief. Chiropractic care gets to the root of the problem instead of putting a Band-Aid on it.

Headaches can have many causes including sinus pressure, TMJ, allergies and tension. Tension headaches tend to be one of the more common types of headaches chiropractors see. Muscles around the head, neck, and skull are typically tight, and pain sometimes shoots from the neck to the head. Muscle inflammation, joint swelling, and/or vertebral compression are often responsible for this type of headache. A careful analysis followed by chiropractic adjustments, stretching exercises, and pressure point therapy (when necessary) go to work to relieve the troublesome pain.

In the case of migraines, adjustments are usually needed at case-specific intervals to keep headaches away. Nonetheless, if a headache ever becomes exceptionally painful, or is accompanied by a high fever, call your doctor immediately.

What Patients Are Saying About Healing Hands

  • - Joseph

    "I had bad back pain, and honestly thought I was disabled permanently. A couple of sessions with Kelly really did the trick. Brilliant chiropractor, and the masseuses there are good too."

  • -Scott

    "The day after my son's first visit with Dr. Cao, he was pain free! She asked to see Sean a couple weeks later to be sure his adjustments held and now he is completely fine. Should he, or his brothers, have any falls or injuries involving their backs and/or necks in the future our first stop will be to the chiropractor."

  • -Suzanne

    "Healing Hands is a very warm and inviting environment. I look forward to my visits there, because they are often the most relaxing part of my week. I highly recommend Healing Hands to anyone in need of help with back pain, but especially to pregnant women whose backs go through so much extra stress with the weight of pregnancy, and do not have a lot of other options."

  • -M. Tebo

    "I have been helped immensely by Dr. Kelly Cao. I was in a great deal of pain, never thought I would walk normal again, due to a slip and fall accident on black ice. I had a lot of problems ongoing from this fall. Dr. Cao always helps. No matter the pain, I do not take pain pills, I trust and believe in Dr. Cao's therapy."

  • -Jim

    I would highly recommend Dr. Cao to anyone that has pain. She is a fantastic Doctor. Unlike most doctors that I have seen in the past, she listens and then addresses the issue with a comprehensive approach which combines Chiropractic Adjustment and Medical Massage. The bottom line is.... It Works!

    I can't thank you enough Dr. Cao for relieving me of my pain!"

  • I've been seeing Dr. Cao for myself and thinking chiropractic adjustments would put an end to Sean's pain much quicker than traditional medicine's methods, I asked if she treats children. Thankfully, Dr. Cao does in fact treat children and my insurance covers the visits.

  • -John

    "I am extremely grateful to Dr. Cao, I thought I really did it this time. Dr. Cao is a absolute professional, she knows what she's doing and I would without hesitation recommend her to anyone and Wendy will make the insurance end if it a breeze."

  • -Ann

    "After a single visit, my symptoms were substantially improved. I was able to stop decongestants without a recurrence of vertigo. I was delighted to get relief without medications. When my symptoms re-appeared this August, I returned to Dr. Cao with the same results. In addition, Dr. Cao recommended a new stretch to add to my daily routine. I am eager to see if it provides even more relief!"

  • -Jessica 6/10

    "Seeing Dr. Cao was the best thing I did in my recovery and I owe it to her that I am back to my old self again, as Dr's didn't seem to be too optimistic that I would feel 100% again. Boy am I glad they were wrong!"

  • -Jeff

    Since visiting Healing Hands in the past 2 months, I have gotten back my full range of motion, my pain has subsided and I no longer wake up in the morning with stiffness in my back.
