Headache and Migraine Relief in Saskatoon

For people who suffer with headaches and migraines, getting through the day can be a challenge. Pain relievers sometimes offer temporary relief, but they come with unhealthy side effects—and they do nothing to correct the underlying problem that’s causing the pain.

Dr. Swystun at Freedom Chiropractic takes the time to discover the underlying cause, offering chiropractic adjustments, lifestyle, and environmental recommendations to help you get back to doing the things you love without pain.

Customized Care

Woman with a headacheWe begin with an in-depth history so Dr. Swystun can understand if lifestyle triggers contribute to your situation. Our thorough examination includes a full postural analysis to identify postural stresses that may be present and Activator Methods® analysis to detect specific areas of joint dysfunction and the exact mechanics that need addressing, including a full assessment of the mechanics of the jaw. The mechanics of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), can cause irritation to nerves in the upper neck which contribute to headaches and migraines. Often this area is overlooked as a factor in a person’s headaches. The Activator protocol allows for a thorough assessment of the function of the TMJ joints.

Your care plan will be as individual as you are, tailored to your specific needs. Your precision chiropractic adjustments will be made using the Activator, an instrument that delivers low-force adjustments in the most precise way possible. This technique does not require any twisting positions and is ideal for the neck’s delicate structures.

In addition, if lifestyle or environmental factors contribute to your pain, Dr. Swystun will make recommendations to help address those stresses.

We Love Success Stories

Many years ago, Dr. Swystun began providing care for a young teen who was suffering from debilitating headaches. Our approach to care helped her get back to living a normal teen life, and now, as a grown woman, she continues to see us periodically to ensure proper joint mechanics of her spine to keep her headaches at bay.

Healing Takes Time

Depending on the underlying cause of your pain, the length of time to heal can vary. Dr. Swystun will outline his recommendations for your customized care plan and let you know how long healing may take. We don’t believe in indefinite care plans, so we monitor your progress to determine the length of your care.
