When Headaches Show Up Daily, Your Chiropractor May Be Able to Help
After a long day a headache may sometimes come with the end of the day. But daily headaches that start to check in on a regular basis are a different matter. Often those headaches appear in tension loaded situations and need prompt answers.
The American Chiropractic Association tells us research indicates chiropractic treatment may provide the best drug free solutions.
Spinal manipulative therapy is an effective treatment for tension headaches according to researchers reporting in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics.
Their research showed four weeks after cessation of treatment the patients who received spinal manipulative therapy experienced a sustained therapeutic benefit in all major outcomes in contrast to the patients that received amitriptyline therapy, who reverted to baseline values.
Another study reported in the Duke Evidence Report showed cervical spine manipulation was also associated with significant improvement in headache outcomes in trials involving patients with neck pain and or neck dysfunction and headache.
If tension headaches have become a constant challenge for you, see your chiropractor now for help.
Visiting the Chiropractor
Chiropractors have a patient-centered, whole-person approach. They see everyone from small children to seniors. They will review medical history and ask about normal activities in the initial visit as they pin down your pain.
They believe wellness and routine chiropractic care should be as basic to our lives as healthy diets and daily exercise.
They offer the purest form of chiropractic care, providing full spinal adjustments using the diversified technique to check for subluxations, which are misalignments of the spine.
Subluxations are misalignments of one or more vertebrae in the spine and/or joints. When the misalignment is corrected it may have far reaching effects on back, neck and sciatica pain.
As a wellness clinic, the chiropractic focus is on daily stresses, aches and pain without use of medications or surgery.
I have known many friends and relatives who have found this simple, direct chiropractic treatment to be the best way to maintain wellness.
Many of them started seeing a chiropractor for wellness visits in their thirties and forties. By the time they reached retirement they were still relying on their chiropractors for the assistance that helped them keep right on going.
If this direct focus on chiropractic wellness sounds just as great to you as it does to majority of the people in the U.S., make an appointment and find out more.
October is National Chiropractic Month and that might be the perfect time to see how chiropractic can help you.
