Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take until patients typically notice relief?

It usually takes 6-12 chiropractic sessions.

How does acupuncture help?

Acupuncture stimulates the central nervous system and opens up channels of energy within the body called qi, which can promote the body’s natural healing process and circulation. The promotion of circulation throughout the body can help treat headaches. Please note that we don’t offer dry needling at the practice.

Can eliminating certain foods and drinks help relieve my head pain?

Yes. For example, coffee, red wine, chocolate, and aspartame are known to cause headaches, so avoiding them can be helpful in preventing pain or worsening an existing headache.
