How We Treat Headaches
Headaches are often the result of inflammation of the soft tissues of the upper cervical spine.
Example of soft tissues are:
Inflammation is most commonly treated by either OTC or prescribed anti-inflammatory medication. While this approach is effective for temporarily suppressing the symptoms, it may not get to the actual cause of the pain.
In Chiropractic, we believe that pain is the body’s way of asking for help. It is your body talking to you and our job is to listen to your body and correct the cause as well as stop the pain.
The most common causes of Headaches that we see are:
Poor head posture
Chronic misalignment of the bones in the upper neck
Degenerative Disc Disease
Flat Feet (yes flat feet can cause headaches too)
Our evaluation will determine what type of back pain you have and what is causing it. If we determine that we cannot help you, we will refer you to the proper professional for treatment.
