A surprising number of headaches start in the neck - and Slovin Chiropractic Center can help resolve the pain without drugs and in a more permanent way.
The most common form of headache is the tension headache - but most people do not know that a lot of tension headaches are caused by problems in the neck. Chiropractic care has been shown to resolve tension headaches and migraines and reduce recurrence. Painkillers can only mask the symptoms and while this might allow patients to function, it is not good for people to take a lot of painkillers, they have side effects, and sometimes even with pills the headache can be bad enough to require rest.
Chiropractic care for headaches involves dealing with muscle strain in the neck, or with misalignments of the cervical (upper) spine that can block nerves, which can cause pain to radiate into the head. Chiropractic adjustment can, thus, resolve headaches, as well as improving the overall health and balance of the body. They may also use massage to help release strained muscles. Tension headaches are often made worse by spending extended times in one fixed position, so ergonomics - another thing this Norwalk back pain doctor can advise on - are also important in headache prevention.
The chiropractor will examine the patient to determine the cause of their headaches - again, this is often the neck, but it can even be a problem further down in the back causing physical stress and the need to compensate. Patients who also experience a loss of range of motion in the neck are particularly likely to benefit from chiropractic care.
Slovin Chiropractic Center has the experience to relieve headache pain from tension headache or migraine, especially for patients who suffer from recurring headaches. Patients should consider a consultation today.
