If you get headaches, you should know you are not alone! Up to 90% of Americans suffer from headaches, whether they be frequent or intermittent, throbbing or dull, stabbing, debilitating and nausea or vertigo-causing. Many are forced to push through the pain or take drugs that themselves cause other problems. Turns out, there's a better option and its been here for over 120 years!
Chiropractic research is starting to catch up with chiropractic practice. Studies done over the last decade show that spinal adjustments can have a profound effect on the severity and frequency of headache originating from the neck, something chiropractors and their patients have known for decades!
Most primary headaches originate from spinal and muscle tension in the neck. Lifestyle, posture and stress can all play a role in spinal tension. Chiropractic can help correct spinal structure and movement, allowing muscles to relax and proper neurological function to take place. This often is accompanied by a reduction in symptoms including headaches and brain-fog!
Chiropractic, while effective, is not the only tool one can use to help with their headaches. Drinking lots of water, eating a balanced diet, exercise, and taking breaks throughout the day to move and stretch the neck and spine can all help.
How can Doctors Pascal help? We provide specific neurologically-based chiropractic to correct spinal structure and allow the body to function the way it was intended! Often times this is all the body needs to stop sending pain signals and start the healing process.
We can also give council on a well-rounded, low-inflammation diet as well as individualized nutritional advice to support the body’s function in the healing process.
We can also give advice on how to correct daily life, work, and sleep postures, taking pressure of the spine and easing muscle spasm.
Doctors of Chiropractic undergo extensive training in the structure and function of the human body. Spinal tension can manifest through the nervous system into many conditions that plague us. Chiropractors specialize in easing that spinal tension, optimizing human function through the nervous system and allowing it to function as designed. Feel free to message us with any questions.
