“Take an Aspirin, See Me in the Morning.”
Sound familiar? Headaches are one of the most profound complaints among the American populace. Headaches are what they are a headache. However, a headache is a pesky pain that still triggers an underlying health problem, no matter how minuscule the problem.
If you are bothered by chronic headaches, and have asked some of the following questions and gotten no concrete answers, it is time to see your chiropractor.
- What causes my headaches?
- Are my headaches something more serious?
- What can I do to ease my pain?
- Is there anything I can do to eliminate my headaches?
Traditional Doctors see millions of people every year for headache complaints and prescribe just as many pain relievers, covering up the symptoms but not focusing on the root of the problem. The doctor may tell you that your problem is most likely due to any of the following, only because he/she does not know.
- Blood pressure or
- Stress or
- Tension or
- Sinus infections
- COPD and more
Typical Cause of a Headache
- All of the above
- Excess drinking, smoking, noise
- Eye strain and poor lighting
- Improper diet
- Environmental smells
While some pain killers take care of a short-term headache, these same medications bring on unwanted side effects such as kidney and liver damage. In the end, these drugs did nothing for the underlying problem.
Granted, sometimes the doctor may find an unfortunate reason for the problem, such as a tumor, stroke, cancer, or other, but most times these tests prove inclusive.
- Cat Scan
A significant portion of people walk away after thousands of dollars spent trying to find out what is wrong and in the end have no answers. The headaches continue.
Chiropractic finds headaches as referred pain from the,
- Occluded ventricles in the head
Chronic headaches start in the spinal column. If the spine is out of alignment, it is going to cause pressure on the rest of your skeletal structure, and the nerves that run through your spine. Misalignment of the spine creates headaches for many people.
A chiropractic doctor is extensively trained to find the problem and work on a solution. This practitioner is highly skilled at discovering rare problems that stump the medical doctor and then makes a specialist referral as rarely needed.
An alignment of the spine:
- Restores the vital spinal curve
- Restores and increases circulation
- Reduces nerve irritation
If your headaches are due to your poorly aligned spine, some see immediate relief after an adjustment. Further treatments likely decrease your headaches or eliminate them altogether. This practitioner gives you approaches to use at home to ease discomfort.
Remember that all headaches have a cause, and pain of any type is not standard. On rare instances, the chiropractor may refer you to a specialist if treatments are not effective.
