Headaches Q & A
The medical community has identified over 150 types of headaches. More often than not, these headaches are a primary condition, but in less common cases, headaches may be a byproduct of a larger issue. Since headaches are largely standalone, Dr. Gawith treats them directly.
Most headaches fall into one of these categories:
- Tension headaches
- Cluster headaches
- Hormonal headaches
- Sinus headaches
- Chronic daily headaches
- Arthritis headaches
There are also situational headaches, such as allergy, fever, and hangover headaches, which usually resolve themselves.
Even though there are many different types of headaches, most of them can be traced back to one of the following sources:
- Sedentary lifestyle
In today’s world, people spend a lot of time in a seated position, whether it’s behind the wheel or a desk. This sedentary lifestyle wreaks havoc on your neck, creating muscle tension that often leads to tension headaches.
Poor posture, repetitive movements, and spending too much time in one position also contribute to tension headaches, because they create misalignments in your spine. Dr. Gawith treats these headaches using numerous methods, starting with the most important and effective: spinal adjustments.
By gently manipulating your spine back to its intended position, Dr. Gawith provides immediate relief of tension headaches: When your spine is properly aligned, the pressure is taken off of the ligaments and muscles that contribute to tension headaches and migraines.
Once your spine is properly aligned, Dr. Gawith may recommend additional therapies that help relieve and prevent headaches, including:
- Relaxation therapy
- Hot/cold therapy
- Massage therapy
Since outside stimuli are major contributors to migraine headaches, Dr. Gawith also uses the state-of-the-art Brain Tap method to relax and balance your brain by providing light and sound that soothes your brain activity.

I made my appointment for siatic pain. By chance the day I went in I was on day 2 of a fibromyalgia flare up. All over pain, restricted movement in my neck, limited use of my right arm, and difficulty concentrating. When I left the flare up was over. I had minimal pain in neck, maybe a level 2. I felt Dr. Gawith was very knowledgeable, listened, got alot acomplished in the first visit. He gained my respect by not trying to upsell me on things, he did not expect me to commit to 3 times a week visits, or working on one area of pain at a time to get more visits and money out of me. He gave me all over relief in the first visit. I will definitely go back to him and highly recommend him as a chiropractor your can trust and will get results quickly.
Relieved the pain that was going down my left leg. Moving better today, just as he said. Thanks Herbie H
Dr Gawith always makes time for me and knows my case very well. He also give great at home advice.
Dr. Jayme helps me in many ways not just chiropractic adjustments. If I’m experiencing a problem (even gastric issues) he suggests ways to deal with them in a natural way. He is always willing to suggest I see a MD if need be. A most knowledgeable, sensitive man!!
