Well....what can people do that suffer from headaches? There are many different ways to describe or label a headache. Migraine, tension, or cluster to name a few. You may have been told that you have other conditions like fibromyalgia or occiptial neuralgia. Regardless of the name of the symptom, we prefer to fix the CAUSE. What a concept in health!
Headaches are how I became interested in the chiropractic profession. It was chiropractic that fixed me. You can take all the over the counter medications until your liver fails from toxicity or you can get on the more powerful drugs like Imitrex. You can click here to look at all the nasty side effects from Imitrex. What is sad is that you go for a problem, and end up up with 3 or 4 additional problems from the drugs you take.
There is even a procedure where they can surgically remove some of the muscles at the back of your skull. Yes, someone came up with that one. The surgical removal of muscles that will alleviate your headaches. DO NOT DO THAT.
I was involved in a fender-bender and it jolted and jerked my head around. Months later I developed headaches. After all the trials of medications and feeling like a lab rat, I went to a chiropractor that eliminated my headaches forever. There is always a better way to do things.
When I was first in practice, my very first patient that I ever saw outside of the student clinic brought in a phone book sized folder of all her tests and history. She was unable to hold a job as she would need constant sick days from the headaches. At this point she had simply given up.
Many headaches can be from the foods we eat, but if you clean up your diet or remove some things, that can be a big help. What about chronic headaches? Chiropractic is your best choice. When your spinal bones get misaligned, they put pressure on the nerves that affects nerve flow, blood flow, and lymphatic drainage. A headache is from a change of this flow.
Understand when you pinch a nerve, the muscle reflex is to get tight and spasm. By injecting the muscle, muscle realxers, or other procedures frankly never gets to the root of the problem. By restoring spinal motion and alignment you have no nerve pressure and balanced spine.
Take for example your car. If the front end alignment is off or there are two different sized tires, you get a bad functioning car that will wear and tear sooner than later. Fix the alignment and everything else goes away.
I have been treating headaches for 18 year with a success rate of 100%. YES 100%. If you know someone that is suffering from headaches, have them call my office now. Life is better without headaches and without the use of medications for them.
I can take 1 x-ray of the spine and determine in seconds if you would be a candidate for chiropractic care and saying good-bye to your headaches forever.
