Experience Headache Relief with Chiropractic Care

If you suffer from headaches, you are not alone.  In fact, 9 out of 10 Americans suffer from regular headaches at some point in their lives, many of varying intensities and frequencies.  Intense headache pain can even cause nausea and debilitating pain that affects how you function or live your day-to-day life.  So what do you do when you are experiencing headache pain?  Do you grin and bear it?  Do you open the medicine cabinet in search of pain pills for relief?  Do you lie down in the hopes that rest will make your headache go away?  While these options seem reasonable and may help for a time, it’s time to look beyond short-term, temporary headache relief. If you haven’t considered chiropractic care for headache pain, it could be the answer you have been looking for.

Why Do I Have Headaches?

Headaches can be caused by a variety of factors.  Tension in the upper shoulders and neck may lead to tension headaches.  Migraines can be triggered by bright lights or stress.  Sinus headaches are a result of pressure buildup in the sinus cavities.  Whatever type of headache you suffer from, chiropractic care can bring about relief.  However, regardless of the type of headaches you’re experiencing, the root cause of any headache lies in the spine.  Spinal misalignments disrupt nerve communication, which leads to dysfunction and pain in the body, including headaches.

A Natural, Safe Solution for Headache Pain

Popping pills for headache pain is what many people turn to for relief.  But did you know that medication is only a temporary fix?  After the medicine wears off, headache pain can return, often much more intense than before.  Additionally, taking pain medication frequently can lead to a number of side effects, dependency issues, or medication resistance. Dr. Esther Widjaja of Phoenix Chiropractic in Peachtree Corners can alleviate headache pain naturally and safely with chiropractic care.  Not only can chiropractic care treat the root problem of headache pain, spinal misalignments, but it also promotes overall improved body function and nervous system communication for a healthier you.

Many case studies also point to chiropractic care as a more efficient way to treat headache pain than pain medication.  In one such case study, 100 people with headache pain were given either medication or chiropractic care for headache pain management.  In the beginning, almost all found relief.  However, after stopping treatment, those in the medication group found that their headaches returned, while those who received chiropractic care continued to experience freedom from headache pain.  If you are seeking long-term results to rid yourself of painful headaches, metro Atlanta chiropractor Dr. Widjaja can provide true correction and relief from headaches.

Chiropractic Care Will Alleviate All Types of Headache Pain

If constant headache pain has affected how you live your life, chiropractic adjustments to remove misalignments can alleviate all types of headache pain so you can get back to enjoying life once again.  After a complete neurological assessment, Dr. Widjaja will perform a scientific, specific, and gentle adjustment to remove misalignments and restore spinal health.  Many people have experienced immediate relief from headaches after seeking chiropractic care.  In fact, one woman suffered from intense migraine pain that led to nausea and vomiting for up to 15 hours, and she found relief after regular chiropractic care.
