Headache And Chiropractic Care

Headache And Chiropractic CareOccasional bouts of headache have been so ingrained in our daily routine that popping a pill becomes almost second nature to most of us. While popping pills to momentarily alleviate headache was never ideal to begin with, the real problem with painkillers lies with its long history of infectivity. And in some cases, its tendency to cause potential perilous side effects.

Treating persisting headache by popping painkillers ever so often has been typically compared to taping over the Oil-light of an automobile. This means that you are not actually correcting the existing problem, but merely choosing to the dull the symptom and totally ignoring the warning sign.

Fortunately, chiropractic care, which is an all-natural approach to optimizing the general well-being of the body, offers a safe and effective treatment to minimize and relieve headache.

What Causes Headache

Despite to what some people might believe in, not all headaches hurt the same way. In fact, people are most likely to experience different kinds of headache in a lifetime. But regardless if you are experiencing an episode of tension headache, migraine, cluster headache, sinus headache, rebound headache, or exertion headache, headache generally is symptomatic of other physiological irregularities.

Among the most common cause of headaches include neck tension (especially for migraine and tension type headaches), temporomandibular disorder, dehydration, emotional anxiety and stress, obesity, hormonal irregularities, and medication overuse.

What Is Spinal Subluxation?

Chiropractic experts find that in countless cases of headaches, the pain does not so much lie in the head as much as it is rooted in the spine of the neck. Doctors of chiropractic find that headache can be indicative of an underlying vertebral anomaly, which is technically referred to as spinal subluxation.

Spinal subluxation typically results from poorly functioning and misaligned spinal joint. As such, spinal subluxation is known to cause unwanted nerve interference that compromises the otherwise optimal connection between the mind, the nervous, system, and the entire body.

Moreover, as most of these nerves are anatomically connected to the neck, scalp, and face, any nerve irritation can easily result diabolical bouts of headache.
