Relieving Headaches With Chiropractic Care
Nine out of ten Americans suffer from headaches; tension headaches and migraines are among the two most common types. If you experienced one of these headaches, you know first hand how annoying and debilitating they can be.
Most individuals see this as a fairly common condition. It may be common but it is not NORMAL. Because a large majority of the population experience headaches, looking for a quick fix is also common. Pain medications may numb the pain but they also cover up the symptoms and can do severe damage to your kidneys and liver.
As chiropractors, it is our job to determine the root cause. Upon examination and X-rays, we can see whether or not symptoms may be alleviated by chiropractic care. If vertebrae are misaligned or there is a lack of curve in the cervical spine or there is a reverse curve in the c-spine then chiropractic is a very good option. Spinal adjustments in conjunction with therapies are also helpful in most cases.
We have personally seen children with headaches so severe that they were unable to attend school and adults who were on the verge of losing their job because of the symptoms they experienced from headaches. It’s amazing to see patients get such great results that they are able to go back to school and work. They are able to function NORMALLY again.
Headaches are not something you are destined to deal with for the rest of your life. We would love the opportunity to see how we can help you in our chiropractic office!
