Headaches are one of the most common ways which your body allows you to know that “there’s something not right”. There are so many reasons and causes of headaches, some headaches can be very mild and others can cause severe pain (ex: migraines). Chiropractic Physicians recognize that a headache is the body's warning alarm system, which the cause of pain may also be attributed to muscle tension and irritation of the nerves and blood vessels in the neck, which in turn can cause neck pain.
The neck consists of seven cervical vertebrae which can be easily misaligned due to physical or emotional stress, TMJ syndrome, and arthritis. This misalignment (also known as a subluxation), can cause irritation of the never root, which can cause constriction of the blood vessels around the nerves and muscular area. These blood vessels supplies the blood to the brain and surrounding areas, and if constricted can cause headaches. If not treated, these headaches can reoccur and can become ongoing throughout a person’s life time, and can cause other sever symptoms or problems.The most two severe headaches that are known are migraines and tension headaches. These two kinds of headaches can occur frequently and cause intense pain, causing symptoms of nausea, dizziness, vision, and can affect a person’s bodily functions and mood. Tension headaches are mostly known to occur due to whiplash injuries caused by car accident injuries or auto accident injuries. Due to this, pharmaceutical companies pour out millions of dollars each year to the average consumer for treatments of headaches.A Chiropractic Physician can help with headaches by finding the source cause of the headache, and not just trying to treat the symptom. As a Chiropractic Physician, our primary concern is to treat and correct the neuromusculoskeletal system, to help find the source of the headache. With our chiropractic services, we will perform an examination, and find the corrective treatment of care for your particular problem. Each patient is treated as an individual case, for no one person’s symptoms or injuries are the same. Due to this, it is understood to the patient every one’s healing process is different, and some experience results fairly quickly, where others it maybe a slow, gradual process.All too often, as individuals we come accustom to self-medication and treatment. Remember headaches are common, but they are not normal. There is always a cause for a headache, and getting the correct treatment is vital for your body and total wellbeing for a healthy life. Early diagnosis and treatment is important in allowing any proper care to be admitted.Come see us here at Discovery Chiropractic and Wellness Center, today for an evaluation.
