Why Invest in Natural Headache Treatment from Your Chiropractor? 

Dr. Doreen Groves is not just a chiropractor. She’s also a registered nurse and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). Dr. Groves uses her education and experience to first diagnose the cause of your headaches and then to create a natural headache treatment plan that can include the following options.  

1. Chiropractic Adjustments

Spinal misalignment strains your muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Realigning the spine releases the tension, thereby reducing pain. 

2. Nutritional Counseling 

Dr. Groves can recommend dietary changes that can help with blood sugar, blood pressure, and food sensitivities. 

3. Ergonomic Recommendations

Poor posture and ergonomics at work can lead to sore muscles and headaches. Dr. Groves will show you how to improve both.

4. Exercises and Stretches

Pain can be caused by tight muscles and even muscle weakness. You’ll receive specific exercises you can do at home to keep muscles flexible yet strong.

5. Massage Therapy

A massage therapist can relax your body and your mind and ease your pain. 

Reduce Headache Frequency by Identifying Triggers

Your Toms River chiropractor can help identify these headache triggers which can include foods, lack of sleep, changes in blood sugar, certain noises, stress, and more. 

Eliminating your triggers can have a huge impact on how often you experience headaches. If you realize that you're not having much success, it's time to look for a natural headache treatment from  professional who could help.
