Believe it or not, nine out of ten Americans say that they suffer from headaches. Some of these people experience constant, painful daily headaches.
More than 30 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches, with women being more likely than men to get them. If you have ever experienced a migraine headache, you know how debilitating it can be.
According to the Mayo Clinic, “a migraine headache can cause intense throbbing or pulsing in one area of the head and is commonly accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can cause significant pain for hours to days and be so severe that all you can think about is finding a dark, quiet place to lie down.”
You may be able to put on a good front, but frequent headaches and migraines affect you, your work, and all aspects of your life. There is hope!
Headaches are not normal but are common, and the most common treatment is, unfortunately, medication. Headaches are often the result of unbalanced muscles and tension in the head and upper neck. Over time, your posture breaks down and causes unbalanced muscle tension that pulls on your spine and skull, putting pressure on your nervous system.
Our gentle chiropractic approach seeks to restore your posture and balance muscle tension to free the nervous system to heal your body more efficiently. Our patients often find the frequency and intensity of their migraines and headaches are reduced, enabling them to return to a more normal and enjoyable life.
