Health Update: Headaches

Chiropractic Manipulation: A Study Regarding Headaches

HeadacheHeadaches are a common complaint in patients presenting for professional care, including chiropractic management.  Patients with headaches seek chiropractic care because they find manipulation or adjustments applied to the cervical spine and upper back region are highly effective in reducing the intensity, frequency and duration of the headache pain.  This is because the cervical spine / neck, is often the origin of the headache as the three nerves in the upper neck (C1, 2 and 3) pass through the thick, overly taught neck muscles in route to the scalp / head.  When the muscles of the neck are in spasm, the nerves get “pinched” or squeezed by the overly tight muscles resulting in headache pain.  Each nerve runs to a different part of the head and therefore, pain may be described as “…radiating over the top of head (sometimes into the forehead and eyes),” or, into the head and over the ear, sometimes reaching the temple.  Also, an area located in the back and side of the head is the area where the C1 nerve innervates, so pain may also be reported in that location.  When more than one of the C1-3 nerves is pinched, the whole side to the top of the head may be involved.

Vaughan Chiropractor Discusses Chiropractic Care For Low Back Pain

 

Maple, ON – Back pain is a common condition and health care problem that affects 4 out of 5 (80%) of people. Back pain can be debilitating, often times resulting in lost time from work. As well, back pain can affect other aspects of quality of life, such as time with family, sports, recreational and leisure activities.

If you are suffering of back pain, whether it’s acute or chronic, seek the advice and consultation of a chiropractor in your community for treatment, relief and correction of the back problem.

Here are 5 reasons to seek chiropractic care for back pain relief:

  1. Chiropractic care for back pain helps with immediate relief of symptoms and is safer than drugs.  Drugs come with a variety of dangerous side effects.
  2. More than pain relief, a chiropractor will look for what is causing the underlying back pain and back problem. Once the cause of the back problem is determined, the chiropractor can recommend a treatment plan that aims at correcting the spinal condition that is creating the back pain symptoms.
  3. The chiropractor provides home care advice that assists in the safe recovery of the back pain and the back problem.  For example, you may get advice on how to sit, stand and sleep in position that prevent further damage and aid in recovery. You may also get advice on proper lifting techniques that helps prevent back injury from these activities.
  4. The chiropractor is trained in providing the appropriate exercises that help with strengthening the back and core muscles as well give specific stretches to alleviate muscle tension naturally.
  5. Once the back problem or spinal condition is corrected, regular chiropractic care can help maintain an optimal spine. Keeping the spine healthy and optimized can help prevent spinal degeneration.

If you have been suffering with low back pain, whether it’s been a few days, months or years, look for a chiropractor in your city for back pain relief and correction.
