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.
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
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:
• Drug Free
