HEADACHES

What causes headaches?

When the bones of the neck and upper back get out of alignment, they can cause irritation and pressure to the nerves of the neck and back that refer pain up into the head. Nerve irritation also causes an alteration in the blood that flow the head due to vasodilation and vasoconstriction. These effects have been well documented in research literature to make us feel pain in our head and thus give us headaches.

 

How does chiropractic help with headaches?

 

When the bones of the neck and back are unlocked and restored to proper alignment, the nerve irritation is reduced and hence the effects listed above are reduced. This reduces headache pain within patients and hence fixed the root cause of headaches, the nerve irritation.

 

Is it safe to receive an adjustment to the neck?

 

It is extremely safe. Chiropractors are trained at applying adjustments to the cervical spine that put no more pressure on the spine than flipping a light-switch. We have adjusted infants while they have been asleep and they don’t even wake up! The literature supports show that someone getting a chiropractic adjustment is safer than taking a Tylenol.  If you feel anxiety about getting your neck adjusted, jut let our doctors know.  We learn about 7 different ways to adjust the neck, so we feel confident that there is a way to adjust you.  Remember that popping sounds is not the goal of an adjustment.  Restoring normal motion to the spine is the goal and objective.  We don't mind using all available tools in the tool bag.    We use instruments, muscle relaxation techniques, drop tables, and manual adjustment.  They all work.  We just need to find out what works best for you and your problem.

 

Does it hurt to get my neck or upper adjusted for my headaches?

 

No. Most patients report that their first adjustment is a surprise because of how gentle and light it feels. They expect this huge “crack” or big twisting of the spine, and our adjustments are typically very specific and very gentle.
