As a chiropractor headaches are treated in our office on a daily basis. They are an incredibly common problem and can make it difficult to enjoy life. Small headaches can be annoying and make it hard to concentrate on work or specific tasks. Major headaches and migraines can be debilitating and make it impossible to interact or even to get out of bed. In situations like this, you need fast and sustainable relief. While medication can help alleviate your discomfort, the results are only temporary because medication treats the symptoms, not the root issue.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC):
- 21 percent of women and 10 percent of men suffer from migraines or severe headaches.
- 17.5 percent of women and 12.6 percent of men have discomfort in the neck.
- 30.2 percent of women and 26 percent of men have lower back issues.
These are all issues we can address and treat in our chiropractic office. The statistics are truly staggering because, for the 21 percent of women suffering from headaches, the statistic is far more than a number. It is a health problem that is holding them back and preventing them from enjoying many everyday interactions. Even if you are one of the people who only suffer from discomfort in the neck or lower back, these symptoms could lead to future headaches. This makes it important to visit our office and treat the problem right away.
Chiropractor Headaches Treatments
Our focus is on aligning your spine so the pressure is relieved and you can live a life free from terrible headaches and discomfort. This can be done with spinal manipulation and adjustments so each of your vertebrae is gently moved into the correct position. This process is comfortable, gentle, and incredibly fast. Many people who have never been to a chiropractor envision spinal manipulation as being something intimidating or even frightening. This is certainly not the case. We will help you feel comfortable and relaxed, chat with you about how you feel and your day, and within minutes, we will be done. What will also be relieved is your migraines. If you visit our clinic on a regular basis, we can work to keep your spine in alignment so your headaches do not develop in the first place.
Limit Medication With Our Chiropractor Headaches Treatments
One thing to consider is the impact of taking medication on a regular basis. Things like Tylenol and ibuprofen are only good to take occasionally. If you need them to keep up with your daily routine, it can become a problem for the rest of your body. Medication should not be taken daily and certainly not several times a day. If your headaches have reached this point, it is certainly time to look for a new solution. You should visit our clinic so we can provide you with sustainable relief that can help you feel better every day.
