Numerous research studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments are very effective for treating tension headaches, especially headaches that originate in the neck. Each individual's case is different and requires a thorough evaluation before a proper course of chiropractic care can be determined.
Our office prides itself on your individual treatment plans. No two patients get exactly the same adjustment. Depending on age, pain, and complexity of problem, Dr. Slayton will decide if you need traditional hands-on adjustments or more gentler methods. Some of the techniques used in our office are: Diversified (hands-on), activator, Thompson drop (using a table machanism), and Cox Flexion-Distraction. Slayton Chiropractic offers 4 types of machines to increase circulation, decrease pain and inflammation, and relax tense muscles. In addition to the machines, Dr. Slayton also does hands on soft tissue release. This complements the treatment you receive with the chiropractic adjustment. This is beneficial for the patient as well as Dr. Slayton in order to specifically diagnose each individual. At your second visit, the doctor will personally show and explain the results of your x-rays. If you have chronic issues, it may just be a matter of a supplement deficiency. Slayton Chiropractic has access to supplements at a low cost delivered in just 1 day. Dr. Slayton will work with you to find out which nutrients could help your specific needs.
