Headaches

headachesIf you suffer from headaches, you’re not alone. Nine out of ten Americans suffer from headaches.

A majority of headaches are associated with problems related to the joints in the neck.
When spinal joints are irritated the nerves associated with those joints cause pain to
radiate from the back of the skull, above the eyes, and to the temple region.

My experience as a chiropractor has taught me that every patient is different. Each person
has specific triggers that can lead to the headache. So in addition to a specific treatment plan, I talk with the patient to get to the root of what may be causing the pain.  We work together to identify the headache triggers, fix the underlying problem, and 
return you to pain-free life.

Remember, masking the pain with over-the-counter pain killers while the problem persists is not a good long term solution.  Aside from a long list of side effects like stomach ulcers and kidney damage, recent research has shown that continued use of pain killers like Asprin and Ibuprofin actually cause headaches – the same headaches they are supposed to be relieving.

Too often I hear people say “Well, this is just a normal part of getting older” or even worse, “I’ve had headaches my whole life, this is just something I have to deal with”. Nobody should have to live a life with pain. Talk with me about how we can get you pain free.
