Chiropractic & Acupuncture Can Help Eliminate Recurring Chronic Headaches

Headaches can be a pretty common thing, and a painful one at that. 

headachesThe most common type is a tension headache. According to the World Health Organization, over a third of men and over one half of women in developed countries suffer from them. Repeated headaches are a symptom of a headache disorder and the WHO says that one in twenty adult has a headache every, or almost every day! Migraines, alone, are the 7th highest cause of disability worldwide and in the top 20 of all diseases according to the WHO.

In addition to tension headaches, there are migraines, cluster, environmental, medication overuse, hormonal, allergy, and yes, ice cream headaches. Headaches can disrupt many areas of life, including family life, social life, and your job. Time is lost from doing the things that need to be done as well as the things we enjoy. Not only that, but a lot of money may be spent on medication and medical intervention.

The causes, while varied, are mostly related to blood vessels from the brain becoming inflamed and irritated. A misalignment in the spine is one of the things that puts pressure on nerves and can cause that irritation. Imagine a garden hose getting a kink in it and decreasing or stopping the water flow. Since every single nerve goes through your spine before ending up at its final destination, wouldn’t it be better if those nerves had the most space available to them to pass through?

Chiropractic adjustments will help align your spine and reduce that nerve interference and irritation. Making sure your brain and body can communicate in the way it was designed is our goal. Add to that posture correction and getting the muscles on board as the support system they are meant to be. Traction, decompression, electrical stimulation, cold laser, rehab exercises, acupuncture. All are great tools to help keep your body at its best.

We’d love to sit down and talk with you about what’s going on with your body and how chiropractic can help get your body functioning to its fullest potential.
