Headache treatment and relief
We offer natural headache treatments aimed to relieve much of your discomfort. More than 15 million Americans suffer from persistent recurring headaches with no obvious cause. Pain pills only cover up the symptoms temporarily in which the headaches usually come back.
Numerous studies have found that chiropractic care helps a variety of headaches. Tension headaches are one of the most common type. Recent studies show that many of these originate in the neck at the location of the cervical vertebrae. A medical doctor doing research at Syracuse University said, “We’ve been able to put together a scientific explanation for how neck structure causes headaches… It’s true that chiropractors have been saying this for years… They were right about headaches.” A recent published control trial concluded, “spinal manipulation has a significant positive effect in cases of cervicogenic (originating from the neck) headache.” They found a decrease in the number of headache hours with Chiropractic care by an impressive 69%, as well as there intensity.
Migraine headaches, perhaps the most severe headaches, also respond to chiropractic care. Especially relevant, in one study, 74.7% of migraine patients had improvements under chiropractic care. The success rate was also maintained two years after the care ended. Then there was the Parker trial by the Australian government that found chiropractic care effective for Migraines. A follow-up study of the Parker trial concluded, “The trial clearly established that chiropractic was an effective treatment for migraine.”
Our clinic focuses on healing your body with the most up to date treatments. Testing such as MRI’s, CT scans, and X-rays are available to help in the diagnosis of your injury. MRI testing is important to detect any unusual findings that my be present. Furthermore, MRI’s also provide the doctor with more information to better treat the patient. MRI’s and CT scans provide a visual tool to certain regions of the spine to detect for disk herniations. Disk herniations and disk bulges are very common injuries to the cervical and lumbar spine after an accident.
Many people turn to chiropractic care at our offices for safe, effective disc injury treatment. This is sometimes referred to as a “slipped disc”, but discs don’t actually slip out of place. Discs can, however, bulge or herniate, causing pain at the site of injury. Commonly causing headaches, numbness, tingling, and weakness that radiates down the arms or legs. With the pain and other symptoms from the disc injury putting pressure on the spinal nerves, may cause a “pinched nerve”. This then leads to inflammation, pain, and loss of function. Pressure on these nerves can cause your symptoms to travel away from the spine. The nerves of the neck travel down the shoulder and extend into the arm, hand, and fingers. This why so many neck problems cause symptoms into the arm and hand. The nerves of the low back join to form the sciatic nerve, which travels down the leg into the foot.
