Headaches

What your chiropractor in Oakbrook Terrace, IL wants you to know

Headaches aren’t just annoying, they can be very painful. Symptoms can range from a mild dull, throbbing to excruciating, life-altering pain. The good news is there are several effective treatments for headaches. Dr. Logan at The Body Connection - Health and Wellness Center in Oakbrook Terrace, IL  wants to share his knowledge of different headache types and effective treatments available.

There are two main types of headaches:

Primary headaches (which have no underlying medical condition) such as migraines, can be caused by:

  • Muscle tension, from tense muscles in your head or neck
  • Chemical changes in your blood vessels, nerves or brain
  • Genetics and family history
  • Alcohol consumption, especially red wine
  • A diet high in nitrates, including processed meats
  • Changes in sleep or missed meals
  • A high level of stress

Secondary headaches (which have an identified underlying medical condition) such as sinus headaches, can be caused by:

  • Head injury or a concussion
  • Dehydration
  • Aneurysm or brain tumors
  • Dental problems
  • Acute sinusitis or sinus infection

No matter what type of headaches you suffer from, Dr. Logan can give you relief from pain. He offers these highly effective treatments for headaches:

  • Treatments to adjust your spine, relieving pressure on the nerves in your neck, head and face
  • Neck and back massage, to relax your muscles and relieve strain
  • Facial massage, effective for sinus headaches because it releases fluids in your sinuses to relieve headache pressure and pain
  • Relaxation training, to aid in deep breathing, helping you relax and relieve stress

These are just a few of the effective techniques and treatments to alleviate headache pain. No matter what type of headache you have or what the cause is, you don’t need to suffer from headache pain.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "My initial reason for seeking chiropractic care was because I was having some back, neck, and shoulder problems. I had seen other chiropractors and achieved no results. This was not the case at The Body Connection. The experience here is very educational in learning how the body works. I am now able to function in a lot less pain. As a result, I am now more active and look at life with more understanding on how to stay healthy."
    Maria H.
  • "I first encountered The Body Connection through Groupon when I came in for a massage. I had a conversation with Dr. Logan and as a result of being treated here, I am now able to do intense workouts, boot camp, and boxing. I have also experienced increased weight loss and now have better posture. Dr. Logan and her staff have been very supportive."
    Lora K.
  • "I have been treated by other chiropractors in the past and over the years coming to The Body Connection has been a wonderful experience. I initially came in for lower back and hip pain. As of now, my flexibility has improved and my pain has diminished. I can now walk and stand for longer periods of time. Also doing daily house work isn’t as painful. I feel better after being treated by the doctor. My energy level is increased and it also improves my state of mind."
    Laura C.
  • "After the awesome massage I enjoyed, I decided to have a consultation with Dr. Logan who encouraged me and stated she could help me. I can now hold my head up better and my chronic headache syndrome has subsided. My experience at The Body Connection has been marvelous. To say it plainly; I just feel better!"
    Maura M.
  • "Prior to meeting the staff of The Body Connection Health and Wellness Center at a Ladies Day Expo, I had no knowledge of chiropractic care. Dr. Logan educated me on how the different issues I was experiencing were connected. As a result of getting treated at this facility, my body feels better. I am now able to sit and ride in a car without feeling the lower back pain and spasms of the past."
