Headaches are one of the most frequent and debilitating issues people experience. From tension headaches to migraines, they keep people from functioning at their best and doing the things that they love.
Headaches many times are due to pressure and tension that builds in the neck and upper shoulders. This pressure and tension creates pain and dysfunction in the muscles and joints of the spine of the neck. This irritates the nerves in the neck and radiates pain into the head.
Headaches are not created by a lack of aspirin, advil, alleve, excedrin etc....these remedies merely cover up the structural problems in the neck. That's why so many people rely on a constant stream of these drugs to get by. They don't solve the true issues at play, they just numb you temporarily, and ensure that once the drug wears off you'll be right back to where you started.
Headaches are easily treated in my office. With proper care for the neck and upper back, headaches are things of the past for many of my patients who have suffered with them in the past. A quick story....
Recently, a nurse who works at one of the local hospitals came into my office suffering of chronic migraine headaches 4-5 times per week. She had been put on many medications to deal with them...the side effects being drowsiness throughout her day. She decided to give chiropractic care in my office a shot. Within 2 weeks we had her headaches down to 1 migraine within that period of time. After 2 months of care, she only experienced 1 further headache over that period that was not severe and resolved quickly. She has eliminated the need for drugs, and has also noticed she has less pain in her body and feels less stressed overall as well. She is feeling so much better that she referred her supervisor in for care as well.
There is no need to suffer with chronic headaches! With the proper care, headaches can easily become of thing of the past.
