On average 157 million days of work are missed each year due to headaches. Although they are extremely common, headaches are not normal. There are even millions of people who suffer from headaches on a daily basis. It can be exhausting to find treatment options for those who suffer from headaches. Researchers are constantly looking at alternative solutions for headache patients that differ from taking medications. The Spine Journal published a study recently proving a 50% reduction in headaches of individuals with chronic headaches. The 6-week study followed patients who sought routine chiropractic care. These patients all saw a decrease in headache days by half! What was even more startling however, was that there was no plateau in improvement in the patients. The people who had more visits with the chiropractor had the most improvements, and the longer they continued with chiropractic adjustments, the more improvement they saw!
Different types of headaches including sinus, cluster, tension, and migraines all have seen improvements with chiropractic care. By realigning the vertebrae in the neck, pressure and irritation of the nerves are removed and blood flow will return to normal. This allows the body to function properly. We see acute and chronic headache patients daily in our office with fabulous results! Schedule your consultation to find the root cause of your headaches to allow your body to function at its optimal potential!
Yours in Health,
