Headaches Relief in Fargo

Headaches are a common condition experienced worldwide, ranging from mildly uncomfortable to debilitating. They can cause absenteeism from school or work, and those who experience frequent headaches may find that their mental health is impacted as well in the form of anxiety or depression.

At Fargo Moorhead Chiropractic and Wellness, we’ve helped many patients get lasting relief from their headaches through our drug-free care.

A Multipronged Natural Approach

As there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to treating headaches, we offer various solutions:


For patients with migraines, we do chiropractic adjustments, using either manual techniques or the Activator® tool, depending upon how severe a patient’s pain is. The Activator offers a gentler approach.


After chiropractic care, we’ll typically provide some sort of traction, such as intersegmental. Or we may do extension exercises with the patient, especially if they’re dealing with structural problems in their neck, which is causing headaches.

Graston Technique®

The Graston Technique is an effective treatment option for those suffering from headaches and migraines. The technique focuses on deep manual therapy that breaks up adhesions in the muscles and joints to restore normal tissue mobility and reduce pain. It can be used to target areas of tension and tightness, which may help alleviate headache symptoms.

SoftWave Therapy

SoftWave, a non-invasive stem cell therapy, helps calm down and control some inflammation in the upper cervical spine to help modulate inflammation.

A Patient Success Story

A woman, who came in with migraines, had never been to a chiropractor before and had been taking various medications for her pain. She experienced almost three to five migraines per week and missed work as a result. She also wasn’t happy at home, because she had to be in a dark room. Finally, one day, the woman decided to come see us.

After a couple adjustments, she was down to hardly any migraines, just low grade headaches. We’ve been working with her since and managing those. Prior to care, she was to the point of being nauseous, throwing up, and having dizzy spells. After just a few adjustments, all those unpleasant symptoms were gone.

Headaches vs Migraines

The difference between headaches and migraines is their severity, with migraines usually causing dizziness, nausea, eye disturbances, and sensitivity to light. Migraines are often caused by restriction and pressure on the nervous system in the upper cervical, while tension headaches stem from the lower cervical due to sitting at a desk all day.
Patients with migraines usually respond quickly to our treatments, with some experiencing immediate relief. We also offer stretches and exercises that patients can do at home to complement our care.
