Headaches are common in our fast-paced, pressure-filled world. Too often, we turn to over-the-counter medications to relieve our discomfort. Unfortunately, these only mask the underlying sources of our pain.
There are many causes of headaches, including physical trauma, emotional stress, nutritional deficiencies, tumors, vascular compromise and chemical toxins. In addition, if your neck and/or back are out of alignment, this can affect nerves, muscles, and blood flow to your head.
After thorough examination which includes neurologic, orthopedic and chiropractic testing, we can determine if chiropractic care is the best alternative for treating your chronic headaches. A combination of chiropractic adjustments, physiotherapy, and nutritional and/or lifestyle changes can dramatically reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches.
It is important to know that if you’ve suffered from chronic headaches for years, improvement can take time. But a visit to our office is a great place to start. Every headache has a cause, and if we are unable to identify the cause, we will refer you to another specialist who may be able to help. (See also: Neurological conditions.)
