Hi, it’s Dr. Jonathon Pinnow and Dr. Steph Pinnow, your chiropractors for headaches in Sun Prairie WI.
We’re really excited to talk to you today about headaches and how we treat each individual headache differently here at Noble Choice Chiropractic.
You see, when you come in, the very first step is that we want to sit down and talk to you.
We want to get to know you personally and then find out exactly how your headaches are affecting your life.
Chiropractor for Headaches Consultation in Sun Prairie WI
You see some headaches.They come from stress. Others are more hormonal. Some of them can be from sinuses. Maybe you have allergies. Sitting down, talking to you, finding out exactly where you’re feeling things and then what time of day you’re experiencing them.
Is it maybe a certain time of year that you’re experiencing these?
Are there any light sensitivities before a headache?
And then how fast the headache comes on, and on and on. There’s so many questions that we’ll ask, that will lead us to the path to find out exactly how to help you.
Once we go through all of these questions, we get a really good understanding of what’s going on with this headache.
Then we’re going to go into the second step.
Headache Exam from Your Chiropractor in Sun Prairie WI
Now, the second step here in our office is a detailed exam, and that’s going to be very specific.
Like Dr. Jonathon said to what you have going on and what types of headaches that you’re having. And if we still don’t quite know the information yet from the consultation and the history, this will help give us some good guidelines to see what exactly is causing your headache.
So we’ll make sure that we do some sort of range of motion.
We also will do orthopedic tests, maybe some neurologic tests. We will do different exams based on your headaches.
For example, if you are a pregnant woman and you’re having headaches based on maybe some of the hormonal changes, we’re going to treat you differently
than an athlete who just had a concussion last night.
And maybe we need to do some concussion testing for his or her headache.
So the exam is really going to help us dial in as to, like I said, what the cause is and then that will help us come up with the appropriate care plan for you.
And so after that history and then the exam are performed, we’re going to go ahead and we’re going to go take X-rays. We have digital X-rays on site and everybody’s different.
You may have both made two people may have hormonal headaches, but they have different spines which are affecting their headaches differently.
And so we want to take X-rays so we can be as specific as possible and help you specific to your X-rays, your concerns and get you feeling better as fast as possible.
It’s only possible by using X-rays. We have you move around when we’re doing X-rays to find out exactly what parts of your spine are subluxated, or just those parts of the bones that are locked up.
They’re not moving. And then we can again be super specific, correct only and adjust only the areas that need to be adjusted so we can get you feeling better as fast as possible.
Chiropractic Care for Headaches in Sun Prairie WI
Correct. So we’re all doing our work here in the office. We also are going to make sure that you are taking responsibility for your own health at home.
So what that means is making sure that you are able to have the tools so that when you have a headache or you can feel one coming on, you know what kind of exercises to do, maybe what kind of triggers to avoid.
It might even be some changes to your work posture, your ergonomic setup, if you know you’re working from home, slouched on a sofa like we might have been told time and time again versus actually sitting at a desk with a proper posture.
So everything that we’ll do here in terms of what your home exercise plan and recommendations are, again, very individualized for what it is that you do and what your specific cause is for these headaches.
Exactly, so we’re so excited to meet you to help you start living without any headaches. We look forward to going through this process with you.
