Headaches

HeadachesAs common as they are, headaches should not be common. Headaches are often thought of as a problem requiring some over the counter medication and then continuing with your day.  They may, however, be caused by poor spinal alignment and can often be improved with the help of chiropractic acre.  They, too, can have a myriad of causes and can range from mild headaches to migraines.

The use of chiropractic care to ameliorate symptoms is often effective for patients who suffer from headaches.  In some cases, muscles at the base of the neck clench and tighten which can create tension in the neck and may be a contributing factor to headaches.  Chiropractic care can intervene and often provide relief from the pain and tension associated with headaches.

Painkiller Epidemic

Painkillers, all kinds of painkillers, are the most widely used and abused method of taking care of a headache. Our chiropractic practice nurtures a more natural approach. Our aim is to locate and diminish the root of the headache.

Unseen Source

One of the most common suspects is the spinal bones in the neck which fail to give proper support to the head. The diminished ability to turn your head may not even be noticeable. Unknown to you however, these vertebral subluxation complexes affect nerves, muscles and even the blood supply to your head.
Our thorough chiropractic examination detects vertebral subluxation complex patterns that could be the reason behind your headaches. If vertebral subluxation complexes are there, you’ll probably find chiropractic care extremely beneficial.

Compensation Reaction

headacheIt often shocks most people to learn that their headaches stem from their lower back. The upper spine balances the shift, which causes the head to be off center, resulting in headaches.
While there’s no guarantee, there is a high success rate with patients who get headaches. Let us show you how we can alleviate your pain through our chiropractic care.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Is the source of all headaches the spine?
    It’s not the only reason. There are three most frequent causes which are physical trauma, emotional stress or chemical toxins. There are times when multiple reasons are the cause. Our chiropractors will identify the cause(s) after a thorough examination.
  • Why do subluxations occur?
    Many of the activities of daily life can cause subluxations. The way we run, walk, sit and sleep are always affected by gravity, and the spine bears the most of this and can become subluxated if it has excessive stress put on it.  Certain foods, drugs and other chemical substances may also react with your body and create subluxations. Dehydration is also a key cause of spinal dysfunction. Stress and other emotional triggers and chills can also affect the functioning of your spine through the physical tension they cause.
  • Everyone told me it was all in my head. What do I do now?
    While this is the last resort health practitioners take when all other options are exhausted psychological pain sources aren’t unheard of. Even then, our chiropractors have frequently discovered that previously unfound subluxations are the cause.
  • How many appointments till I’m recovered?
    This depends entirely on the severity of the problem and how long it has been persisting for. While some people experience almost instantaneous relief, others feel their symptoms slowly lessening under chiropractic care. Your treatment is modified according to your progress.
