HEADACHES

How Does Chiropractic Help Headaches?

Many People Ask:
• Are headaches a normal part of life?
• Does everyone get headaches?
• Is it something I just have to live with?

The Correct Answer To ALL Of These Questions Is NO!!

There are many people that feel headaches are just a normal part
of life, and that an over-the-counter pain reliever is all that is needed. Pain killers are deficient in the body, they think, and that is why taking pain killers work. Right? Again wrong.

I would like you to think about what an iceberg looks like. You have a giant chunk of ice below the water and just a little bit sticking out on top. If you were to cover up the top half, one might think there is no danger—when the true danger is still there under the depths of the water.

Pain Killers:
When people take pain killers they are just covering the top of the
iceberg and not addressing the real problem of what lies beneath. To explain further, pain killers were designed to remove the symptom of pain by placing a chemical in the body. Many times the chemical is not needed and will not correct the under lying problem . Thus, like the iceberg the symptoms are gone but the true danger is still left untouched.

How Chiropractic Care Helps:
Chiropractic care works by addressing the problem: the cause of the headache. When the first seven bones in the neck—referred to as the cervical spine—misalign, a headache can occur. Your chiropractor is trained through an extensive education to find these misalignments and gently correct them.

How Long Does It Take?:
Some patients state that they get instant pain relief from one
adjustment while others may take two or more adjustments to achieve the same relief. You and your chiropractor will be able to fine the frequency that is right for you.

Chiropractic Care is:
• Safe
• Gentle
• Effective
• Drug Free
• Natural
• Cost Effective
