Feeling the Pain of Headaches or Migraines?

MANY headaches respond favorably to chiropractic care without the side effects of drugs, and can often offer a lifetime of relief!
We specialize in treating and healing your headaches and migraines through holistic therapy and gentle chiropractic care.

Getting your head on straight (literally) can take the pain and tension of "everyday" headaches away!

Have you ever bumped your head or been in any kind of car accident (even one you did not think you got hurt in?) If so, it is possible that your "head" bones or cranial bones got jammed. This is NOT something they can test you for at the hospital - only a medical practitioner like some chiropractors, including Dr. Schade, can check for alignment of your cranial bones to "unjam" them.

45 million Americans suffer from frequent headaches and migraines according to the National Headache Foundation. Causes of headaches and migraines include stress, tension, hormone changes, food sensitivities, or auto accident injuries.

From tension headaches to sinus headaches to throbbing migraines, each headache type requires different treatment methods. Call us today at 512-474-5433 to find relief - we're your Austin headache and pain center and we'll find the cause of your pain so you can find sweet relief!

Our Treatment Options:

  • Advanced Chiropractic care
  • Graston Technique®
  • Ultrasound
  • Massage Therapy
  • Food Sensitivity Testing

  • Did you know that migraines can be triggered by certain foods or drinks? Aged cheeses, deli meats or hot dogs with sodium nitrate, red wine, chocolate, corn syrup or caffeine have been linked to increasing the severity and length of migraines. Reducing or avoiding specific foods altogether may be successful for the treatment of migraines.

    The MOST common type of headaches are tension headaches. They are the kind you can have 3 - 4 times a week or several times a month. They are ALSO the type that USUALLY respond to the type of Chiropractic CARE we specialize in here at Active Life.

    DO NOT LIVE with headaches any more. Come and get evaluated and see what we can do to help you live a headache-free life! To make an appointment, give us a call at 512-474-5433 today!

    • Definitely Recommend – Dr. Schade and the entire team at Active Life Chiropractic Clinic are very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful! I initally went to the Clinic for the food allergy test and decided to try their treatments for consistant headches I was having on the left side of my head. I have only being going to clinic for two months and have already seen great improvments in my headaches and posture. I have learned so much from the physical therapy team on how to strengthen and correct my posture. This is so important as I sit at a desk most of day and did not realize the strain this causes on different parts of your body. And that there were exercises I could be doing while at work to prevent strain or injury. I would definitely recommend going to them!!
    • I started having chronic headaches that I've never before experienced. They came on quickly and stuck around for about 20 consecutive days with no relief. Since this had never been in my medical history, I came to a dismal conclusion...I'm entering the realm of jumping from one specialist to the next. When the situation escalated, I ended up in ER with an even more pounding headache, severe heart palpitations and strange tingling sensations in my extremities. The attending physician ran tests, recommended I see a cardiologist and sent me on my way. I was on the road to a dreaded journey. I had already been unsuccessful in the past with other issues that really required getting to the root cause as opposed to masking symptoms. I was already seeing a naturopath since modern medicine had been unable to 'fix' the problems. I did some research that lead me to chiropractic medicine. As I sifted through a myriad of practitioners, I found Active Life Chiropractic Clinic. Since I hadn't been to a chiropractor in years, I wasn't sure if I was even in the right direction. But I had to give it a shot. I didn't have time for a brain tumor or heart condition;-) I was greeted by the friendliest front office. I filled out forms and was in the doctor's office quickly even though there were many in the waiting room. Dr. Cynthia Schade was very thorough and knowledgeable which gave me the confidence I needed to continue. She didn't just "adjust" me like some people assume. With a thorough examination, she concluded that I needed an x-ray. After the results were in, it was clear I needed some work on my neck and spine. But, she wasn't done. Thankfully, she ordered an MRI to rule out any serious issues. When I got the results back, I was very relieved!
