A frequently overlooked cause of headaches is the malfunctioning of bones in the spine, neck, and upper back. When the spine is misaligned, sensitive nerves and blood vessels to the head can be affected. When spinal nerves and tissues are stretched or irritated, they can produce painful headaches. Drugs may cover up these warning signs, but do not correct the underlying structural cause.
If a thorough examination reveals reduced range of motion, loss of abnormal spinal curves, or mechanical restrictions, chiropractic care should be considered. After a complete assessment, you'll receive a care program suited to your personal needs. Many patients report headache pain relief. Others find that the road to pain relief takes longer because their spinal condition has existed undetected for years in some cases. Benefit from drug-free results by considering our quality chiropractic care to relieve your headaches.
Neck pain can have many different causes, from strained muscles to poor posture — maybe leaning over at your computer or desk. Wear-and-tear and/or arthritis also are common reasons for neck pain. The usual response is the use of drugs to cover up the problem (aspirin, analgesics, pain pills). But this is only treating the symptoms and not the root cause of the pain!
The chiropractic approach to neck pain is to locate the underlying cause. We begin with a complete medical history and thorough patient assessment. Special attention is given to the structure and function of the spine, and its affect on the nervous system. Is the proper spinal curve present? Are the nerve openings between each pair of bones free and clear? Is the head balanced? Are the shoulders level? These and other considerations are used to create a plan of specific chiropractic adjustments to help improve the motion and position of spinal vertebrae.
With improved structure and function, neck pain often diminishes or totally disappears - without addictive drugs or harmful side effects! One study, publishes in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that patients who receive chiropractic care reported a reduction in their neck pain whereas those taking pain-killers did not.
