Headaches

There are many types of headaches, including tension headaches, migraine headaches, cluster headaches, and others. Many of these can be caused by muscle spasms, or misalignment of the cervical vertebrae. I have had excellent results treating all kinds of headache in my office, and there is a lot of research that agrees with my experience.

For example, a report in 2001 by researchers at the Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center found that "spinal manipulation resulted in almost immediate improvement for those headaches that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension-type headache than commonly prescribed medications."

Another good study was published in Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics. It found spinal manipulative therapy to be very effective for treating tension headaches. This study also found that those who stopped chiropractic treatment after four weeks continued to experience a sustained benefit in contrast to those patients who received pain medication.

Many people have come to accept headaches as “normal”. I don’t think that it is normal to be in pain! I think that pain is your body telling you that there is a problem, and you should do something about it. Call and let’s start today.
