Do you suffer from headaches that disrupt your life? Do you have to take medications everyday to make it through the pain? Or do you have occasional headaches that are quite severe?
Headaches are a common cause of lost time at work and visits to doctors. Many headaches are caused by musculoskeletal issues in the neck and can be corrected easily with Chiropractic and exercises. Other headaches can be caused by numerous dysfunctions including: dehydration, anemias, low blood sugar, high blood pressure, food allergies or sensitivities, dilated blood vessels, neurological dysfunctions, sleep deprivation, infections, and in very rare cases, lesions or cancer. Some of these are helped with Chiropractic, others by changes in lifestyle, and others by being referred to the appropriate specialist.
The key is finding the reason for the headaches and treating appropriately. Here, our Chiropractor focuses on the whole body to diagnose the headache, find the cause and treat the person as a whole. The exam is thorough and if labs are needed, they will be ordered. The diagnosis is discussed, choices in treatment discussed and the patient and the doctor work as a team to eliminate the root cause of the headaches.
