Do headaches and migraines take the enjoyment out of your days? If yes, you are not alone. It is reported that as many as 9 out of 10 people suffer from headaches and migraines. Some may be occasional, some frequent, some are dull and throbbing while others cause debilitating pain and nausea.
Common remedies include some kind of pills, ibuprofen or migraine meds, or injections such as Botox. Or maybe you hibernate at home, in bed, in the dark until it passes. You know about the bad side effects from the drugs or Botox but you need something—ANYTHING to bring you some relief. A chronic tension or stress headache can last for several days; chronic headaches sometimes last for several months. Tension headaches aren’t typically associated with nausea or vomiting or the throbbing pain associated with migraines.
Is there a better alternative?
YES there is! According to numerous research studies and patient testimonials, chiropractic care is a very effective means to relieve headaches and migraines—particularly Atlas Orthogonal upper cervical care—a very precise and gentle adjustment.
In 2001, researchers at Duke University found that spinal manipulation, because it gets to the core of the problem, could result in nearly immediate improvement for headaches that begin in the neck region. These natural, non-invasive treatments do not have the negative side effects and the results last longer than typically prescribed medications do.
Additional studies published in the Journal of Manipulate and Physiological Therapeutics in 2011 and 2014 continue to support these findings. In fact, not only will spinal manipulation relieve headaches and migraines, it can also help to improve the immune system and overall functions of the body.
Each case is different and will require a complete evaluation prior to determining the proper chiropractic care regimen. It is also important to remember to avoid any trigger foods, stress, and any other lifestyle triggers. A Doctor of Chiropractic, Certified Wellness Practitioner can guide you further in the areas that may be a trigger.
