Meet Tia, a 42-year-old woman who has been suffering from severe migraine headaches for many years. Despite visiting multiple doctors, massage therapists, acupuncturists, and chiropractors, her headache continued to persist. The only solution offered to her was to take painkillers for the rest of her life. Tia’s chronic headache has greatly affected her daily life and she was unable to socialize with friends and family due to her headache being triggered by even a single glass of wine.
One day, Tia was recommended to see Cody, a practitioner who specializes in sports acupuncture. During her examination, Cody noticed that Tia’s upper back and neck were incredibly tight and tender. After performing a combination of Trigger Point Acupuncture, Electro-stimulation, and Cold laser therapy on Tia’s neck and upper back, Tia reported that her headache had greatly improved from one single treatment.
This story is not unique, as many patients who suffer from chronic pain have tried every modality without seeing results. Cody believes that for complex and chronic cases, it requires much more in-depth details intake and unique techniques pairing to cater to the individuals. Therefore, treating individuals differently rather than applying the same approach to all headaches is essential for successful treatment.”
