HEADACHES

Did you know that American Neurologic Association states that only 3-4 headaches a year are “normal“, any more than this should be evaluated?

Many people consider headaches to be a pretty minor condition that doesn’t necessarily need the attention of a healthcare professional. Most people are inclined to take some sort of pain killer and call it a day. What they don’t understand is that, while the pain killer may take care of the pain, it does nothing to address the actual cause of the headaches. Headaches can be an indication of other more serious health problems and should not be taken lightly.

Chiropractors and acupuncturists have been extremely successful in detecting and treating the cause of headache pain for patients. By concentrating on the cause of the headaches, chiropractic and acupuncture treatments are a much more effective and healthy alternative to drug treatments.

Living with headaches can seriously diminish your quality of life and may be an indication of larger health problems. Headaches can be treated very effectively through chiropractic and acupuncture care.

What is causing my headache? The causes of headaches are unique to each individual and can be the result many factors. Headaches can also be warning sign of something more serious and should be diagnosed and treated by a doctor, prompt diagnosis and treatment is recommended.

Why am I suffering from Headaches?

Headaches are common but not Normal (according to the World Health Organization) 2/3 of adult males and over 80% of adult females suffer from Headaches. Headaches tend to decrease productivity at work and can affect professional and personal relationships. Adults are not alone; Headaches can and do frequently affect school age children and teens as well, potentially leading to difficulty with school work and a drop in grades. Even mild Headaches affect attention span and cognitive behavior. Most people are inclined to take an over-the-counter pain killer and call it a day. However, pain killers only mask the pain for a short time, and if the primary cause is not discovered and addressed headaches tend to increase in severity and frequency.
