A headache sounds like a minor issue, but those who suffer from headaches know better.

There are many causes of headaches. Emotional or physical stress, dehydration, poor nutrition, trauma, toxins and spinal misalignment, also called Subluxation.

When a headache hits, there are three options:

Ignore it and wait for the next one
Take medication
Find and Fix the underlying cause

Most people choose the second option, reaching for over the counter pain killers. These may stop the pain, but they don’t remove the cause of the pain, which means that the headache will return. For patients with severe headaches, over the counter pain killers may be the choice. But over the past couple of years, many of these have been proven to cause dangerous side effects long term.

The Role of Chiropractic

Doctors of Chiropractic work with their patients to permanently remove the cause of headaches.

Every patient’s condition is different, so the first step toward treating headaches is making an initial visit for a consultation, exam and or nutritional consult. Once the cause(s) of the pain is determined, treatment options can then be considered.

Chiropractic doesn’t settle for masking pain. Chiropractic’s goal is to remove the root cause of the pain. Isn’t that your goal?
