Many people suffer from regular, acute, or chronic headaches. It’s something that will happen to most of us at some point in life, but for those who regularly suffer from headache pain, the best solution is a natural solution, one that is non-invasive and that can minimize or eliminate the need to resort to drugs for pain treatment.
What Are Migraines?
Tension headaches and migraines are caused by persistent muscle contractions in the head, neck, and upper spine. For those of us who work at a desk, the problem can be exacerbated by spending long periods of time in front of a computer, bad posture, and inactivity. Triggers that set off a stress response such as loud music, the light from a computer screen, dehydration, or hunger can set off pain that can be lasting and even excruciating. In the very worst cases, sufferers can lose time at work or lose the ability to engage in their favorite activities.
How Chiropractic Treatment Can Help
The purpose of chiropractic care is to help restore the natural alignment of the spine. In recent years, chiropractic professionals have expanded the art and science to include nutritional counseling, physical therapy, therapeutic massage, and more. All of these treatments can reduce the tension that causes severe and recurring headache pain. They are non-invasive, and best of all, they help to unlock the body’s own healing abilities allowing the body to do what it does best by removing barriers to healing.
Here at Comprehensive Chiropractic Care in East Meadow, our highly trained, professional chiropractor Michael Brass uses the latest in chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness of every patient he serves.
Chiropractic adjustments are used to return the spine and the surrounding musculoskeletal structures to their natural and proper alignment. In so doing, muscular tensions are reduced and impingements to nervous, muscle, connective, and other tissues are reduced or eliminated.
With physical therapy and similar treatment modalities, we strengthen muscles and connective tissues that may be weak or have been damaged by illness or injury. This can reduce or eliminate pain and can make future injury or pain less likely to occur. In some cases, it can even prevent further injury or pain.
