HEADACHES CAN PLAY HAVOC IN YOUR LIFE…
Any headache can create enough pain and discomfort that your life can be affected.
We know you’re in pain. Headaches are difficult to live with.
Headaches can cause you to have a hard time concentrating, sleeping, and reading – affecting work, school and enjoying down time.
There are several reasons you might have headaches. Sometimes headaches can be caused by a cold that creates pressure in your sinus. This is referred to as a sinus headache.
Another type of headache is a migraine. Migraine headaches are usually caused by genetic or environmental factors. Often, they can be set off by hormones, food, stress and or physical exertion.
The last type of headaches is tension headaches. Tension headaches can be caused by poor vision and trying to read fine print. If you have a poor set up at your desk and must lean forward this can create tension in the back of the neck. The muscles of the back of the neck can refer pain into the head. The last cause of headaches is if you grind your teeth or clinch your jaw while you sleep. That will cause increased muscle tightness in the neck and jaw muscles which can cause headaches.

"I left work with a Migrain and was told to come on in..."
I have had nothing but good experiences at this office! I have gone in for acupuncture when I’ve had migraines. I’ve gone in with a couple different injuries. I’ve gone in with just aches and pains or when I’ve just been feeling a bit off.
Regardless of what it is your throwing at Dr. K she takes you in, figures it out, and makes necessary adjustments – pun intended! 😉
I always leave happier and feeling better than when I walked in the door.
Also, they are extremely accommodating – I left work with a migraine once and was told to come right on in and was treated right away. I have never waited for more than 5 minutes and making an appointment with them is always very easy because their front desk staff (Ashley in particular) is incredible – very personable and efficient! The massage therapy in this office is wonderful as well (Susanna is the bomb) – I have had a few!
Overall everyone is very knowledgeable, professional, and darned-good at their job! 15/10 would recommend!
