Tension Headaches

Are you having mild to moderate pain around your head like a headband or pain that headaches that begin in the back of your neck?  Do you have tenderness of the front of sides of your head or in your neck or shoulder muscles?

Tension headaches may be due to a variety of reasons and may occur due to misalignments of the neck, back, TMJ, shoulder, and even the hands and the feet.   

Dr. Moscow will do a thorough history and examination to determine the appropriate diagnosis for your condition.  He sits down and discusses with you his examination findings and his recommendations for treatment.

Dr. Moscow has helped hundreds of patients by looking “outside the box” correcting abnormalities that your prior doctor have missed.

Treatment options may include a chiropractic adjustment or manipulation.  Dr. Moscow has many methods that he may utilize including a traditional chiropractic adjustment in order to properly align a misaligned joint and restore normal function.  Or if more appropriate he may use gentle techniques such as using Cox decompression therapy (flexion-distraction) or he may use an Arthrostim or Activator instrument or do various stretching techniques.

Dr. Moscow may also utilize other treatment modalities such as electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, hot and cold packs, various methods of stretching, massage therapy, exercise and rehabilitation, nutrition counseling or may prescribe a brace or orthotic.  We also have a medical doctor on staff that can prescribe medication when needed.
