Don’t Suffer From Headaches

Don’t Suffer From Headaches

   I don’t know if you’ve ever had a headache, but I’d venture to say you have. There are exceptions. If you just had an exhausting day, everyone was yelling at you, you had a lot going on, and no one to help, then there may be a reason why you’re having that headache.

   But… if you have headaches FREQUENTLY you might want to think about WHY you’re having frequent headaches. It is NOT normal. I know a lot of people want you to think that headaches are normal, but they are NOT NORMAL.

   TIP: Headaches are a symptoms of something else going on in your body.

   Sometimes something BAD.

   Numerous research studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments are very effective for treating tension headaches, especially headaches that originate in the neck.

   Here’s something that I found recently that might apply to you if you have headaches.

   A report released in 2001 by researchers at the Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center in Durham, NC, found that "spinal adjustments resulted in almost immediate improvement for those headaches that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension-type headache than commonly prescribed medications."

   These findings support an earlier study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics that found spinal manipulative therapy to be very effective for treating tension headaches.

   This study also found that those who stopped chiropractic treatment after four weeks continued to experience somewhat of a “sustained” benefit in contrast to those patients who received pain medication.

   Each individual's case that comes to our office is different and requires a thorough evaluation before a proper course of chiropractic care can be determined.

   However, in most cases of tension headaches, significant improvement is accomplished through adjustments of the cervical vertebrae, coupled with adjustments to the junction between the cervical and thoracic spine. This is also helpful in most cases of migraine headaches, as long as food and lifestyle triggers are avoided as well. Call my office today if you have headaches and get checked. It’ll be the best thing you’ve ever done.
