With 2017 coming to a close and 2018 around the corner, it is an excellent time to visit a headache chiropractor. The holiday season can be stressful and this can be even more challenging if headaches are a regular occurrence. Sometimes, just adding a lot of activities to the daily routine can lead to stress and further headaches. Very often, over-the-counter medication is not enough to make a person feel more comfortable. At that point, it is time to seek medical help, something we can provide in our clinic.
WHAT CAUSES HEADACHES?
Headaches can be caused by a variety of issues such as poor health, stress, grinding and clenching teeth, or tension. Tension headaches are the most common type of a headache and that is what we focus on in our clinic. A tension headache is due to the muscles in the neck, back or shoulders pulling and causing pain.
PROFESSIONAL TREATMENT FOR HEADACHES
Typically, people with headaches will suffer in silence. Over-the-counter pain medication only provides temporary relief and does not treat the issue. Some people will also:
- Avoid bright lights or loud noises
- Use a warm compress on their neck
- Drink caffeine
- Drink more water
While these steps can be useful in providing some temporary relief, they do not work for everyone. Also, these steps do not prevent headaches from returning.
REASONS TO VISIT A HEADACHE CHIROPRACTOR
Anyone who is tired of having tension headaches and wants to experience more long-term results should visit a chiropractic office. In our clinic, we do not focus on treating or masking symptoms. Instead, we look for the source of the problem and seek to solve it so that our patients can experience the benefits of improved health today and in the future.
In other words, instead of prescribing pain medication to be taken on a daily basis, we want to solve the problem so that medication is not necessary on a daily basis. Many of our patients find that after receiving ongoing treatment, their headaches go away entirely and it is rare that the symptoms return. Our ultimate treatment goal is to help patients find the long-lasting solution they need.
WE GIVE PATIENTS HOPE
One of the best things we can do for patient is to give them hope that headaches go away. At first, our patients typically experience headaches with less intensity and then less frequency. Eventually, patients report not experiencing any headaches at all.
These results sometimes require regular chiropractic care but are certainly worth it to live life with more energy and vibrancy thanks to headaches being eliminated.
