If you live in and are suffering from tension, migraine, cluster or cervical headaches, YOU CAN FIND RELIEF!
Ninety-five percent of headaches are primary headaches, such as tension, migraine, or cluster headaches. These types of headaches are not caused by disease but FROM TENSION.
"The greatest majority of primary headaches are associated with muscle tension in the neck," says Dr. George B. McClelland, Chairman of the American Chiropractic Association's (ACA) Board of Governors. "Today, Americans engage in more sedentary activities than they used to, and more hours are spent in one fixed position or posture. This can increase joint irritation and muscle tension in the neck, upper back and scalp, causing your head to ache!
For many, that relief is only a phone call away.
Integrated Medical specializes in the treatment of headache pain regardless of its cause.
Why Choose Chiropractic for Headache Relief?
According to the International Chiropractic Association, the primary focus of chiropractic is the detection, reduction and correction of spinal misalignments and nervous system dysfunction. Doctors of chiropractic attempt to get to the root cause of a health problem, rather than just treat the symptoms. Chiropractic seeks to maximize the natural strengths of the body and its capacity to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
The doctors and staff at Integrated Medical have the goal of providing the best and most advanced healthcare possible. To ensure that we are providing high quality, consistent care and quick results for our patients, our staff participates in constant training and research to verify that the procedures and services we offer are the most beneficial and effective. We strive to stay current in new innovations and then to educate our patients and the public on this information so you can make an informed decision for your ideal health and care.
We know and understand that every body is different and needs an individualized and unique approach. We combine the best aspects of Physical Medicine, Chiropractic, Physical Rehabilitation, Functional Medicine & Nutrition into personalized programs for each of our patients.

Primary Headaches include tension, migraine, cervicogenic, and cluster headaches and are not caused by other underlying medical conditions. More than 90% of headaches are primary.
Secondary Headaches result from other medical conditions, such as infection or increased pressure in the skull due to a tumor. These account for fewer than 10% of all headaches.
Tension headaches usually involve a steady ache, rather than a throbbing one, are described as a feeling of pressure or tightening, may last minutes to days, affect both sides of the head, and and do not worsen with routine physical activity. It may also be accompanied by hypersensitivity to light and noise. Some people get tension (and migraine) headaches because of stressful events. Tension headaches may also be chronic, occurring frequently or daily.
Rebound Headache: Rebound headache may occur among people with tension headaches, as well as in those with migraines. It can be the result of taking prescription or nonprescription pain relievers daily or almost every day, contrary to directions on the package label. If prescription or nonprescription pain relievers are overused, headaches may 'rebound' as the last dose wears off--leading you to take more and more pills. This is a great reason to call your chiropractor. Break that cycle!2. Cervicogenic Headaches:
Cervicogenic Headaches come from disorders of the neck. They are often brought on by neck movement and/or sustained awkward head positioning (such as painting the ceiling or washing the floor). There may also be stiffness in the neck or shoulder and arm pain accompanying the headaches.3. Migraine Headaches:
Migraine Headaches are less common than tension headaches, but still afflict 25 to 30 million people in the United States As many as 6% of all men, and up to 18% of all women experience a migraine headache at some time.
Migraines may last 4-72 hours and involve the entire head. They can cause throbbing and are aggravated by routine physical activity.
Nausea, sensitivity to light and sound often accompany migraines. An "aura" may occur before head pain begins-- involving a disturbance in vision, and/or an experience of brightly colored or blinking lights in a pattern that moves across the field of vision. About one in five migraine sufferers experiences an aura.
Usually, migraine attacks are occasional, or sometimes as often as once or twice a week, but rarely occur daily.4. Cluster Headaches:
are pretty rare, affecting about 1% of the population. They are different from migraine and tension headaches. Most cluster headache sufferers are male -- about 85%.
Cluster headaches come in groups or clusters lasting weeks or month. The pain is extremely severe but the attack is brief, lasting no more than a hour or two. The pain centers around one eye, and this eye may be inflamed and watery. There may also be nasal congestion on the affected side of the face.
These "alarm clock" headaches may strike in the middle of the night, and often occur at about the same time each day during the course of a cluster. A history of heavy smoking and drinking is common, and alcohol often triggers attacks.

*"I have been coming to Integrated Medical since before they were called Integrated Medical. This is a fantastic place. I first started coming here for really bad headaches, neck, and back pain. Every doctor that I would go and see before I started coming here kept trying to diagnose me as being depressed when I wasn't. I am relatively pain free now and they keep me going with my normal in and out visits. I would highly recommend Integrated Medical to anyone."
*"I used to wake up daily with headaches before I started coming here. They took the time to find the cause of my headaches rather than giving me medications to treat the symptoms. I can't remember the last time I had a headache anymore."
*"My experience has been extremely satisfying . The pain has subsided quite a bit and I am able to do things now that I was having problems with before such as household chores and grocery shopping. I am getting more flexible and stronger every week. I am also getting a better nights sleep because I am in less pain. I would highly recommend Integrated Medical."
*"I, my wife, three children, and infant all go to Integrated Medical/ Wulf Chiropractic for acute pain, maintentenance, and general wellbeing/ preventative care. The staff have always gone above and beyond to be flexible and to meet our needs in a kind and courteous way. I have tried at least five other chiropractors in the area and Dr. Pearl at Wulf Chiropractic consistently is able to adjust me and provide relief better than anyone else."
*"I've been coming here for a couple years (on and off) and have always been treated uniquely, with care and specific treatment. The staff is super friendly and always helpful. They are constantly looking for ways to help you feel better, no matter how big or small the pain. I definitely recommend stopping by no matter if you think you need it or not!"
*"I'm over the moon about the care I've received at Integrated Medical so far. I live an hour and half away, but it has absolutely been worth the drive. I found Integrated Medical after being involved in a car accident a few months ago, and had pain that wasn't resolving. There were chiropractors and physical therapists closer to me, but none that provided comprehensive therapy like I've received at Integrated Medical."
*"This place is amazing. They have been so helpful to me, my mother in law and husband. Truly a great much of people. You will feel comfortable and welcomed. They will go out of the way to make sure you are satisfied."
Chiropractors offer a drug-free, hands-on approach to healthcare that gets you feeling better quickly , safely, and effectively.How Is a Headache Evaluated?
Early diagnosis and treatment are important in identifying the underlying cause for your headaches. In most cases, an in-depth history and physical examination will help determine this.
Once the cause has been identified, we will develop a specific management plan to help eliminate your pain based on your individual needs.What Is the Treatment for Headaches?
Chiropractors treat patients with tension-type headaches and as well as headaches caused by problems with the joints and muscles in the neck.
Adjustments of the neck, along with stretching and strengthening exercises, have been demonstrated to be effective in the treatment of headaches. Massage and other forms of soft-tissue treatment can sometimes be helpful.
Scientists are also investigating other therapies, such as acupuncture, to prevent and treat this disorder.
Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, may be used for an occasional headache, but long-term use can lead to health complications such as gastrointestinal difficulties, liver problems, and kidney failure.
