Headache Myths and How Neurologically-based Chiropractic Care Can Help: by Dr. Nathan Servey, Victor
Updated: Mar 30
Everyone knows someone who suffers from headaches. Maybe it's a classmate, coworker, or family member. Maybe it's you. Nobody should have to suffer from daily head pain! We see patients every week who have tried everything and have been told by medical doctors that there is 'no other option' than painkillers and muscle relaxers. Maybe they have even tried 'chiropractic' before but didn't see the results they hoped for. Reach out and share this article with them about neurologically-based chiropractic care.
Neurologically-based chiropractors focus on promoting nervous system health via the spine, so many headache and migraine sufferers find relief and much benefit from neurologically-based chiropractic adjustments. In our office, we help people with headaches every single day! There IS hope! Below we will explore 4- common myths about headaches and neurologically-based chiropractic care.
Myth #1 : Headaches Are All The Same
There are many different headache classifications with varying causes. The most common type of headache is typically referred to as a "tension-type headache" which can be a result of stress, poor posture, and injury causing misaligned vertebrae in the upper neck called "subluxations". It is important to see a neurologically-based chiropractor as they are the only professionals trained to find and address these spinal subluxations!
Myth #2: Your Headaches Are "Normal"
Headaches are common, they are NOT normal! It is important to determine what is causing the headaches in order to create a plan to get rid of them (and keep them gone!).
Myth #3: You Shouldn't Be Adjusted
FALSE. That is rarely the case. Chiropractic is very safe for most people and everyone can benefit from regular, neurologically-based chiropractic care. In fact, people suffering from chronic headaches should see a neurologically-based chiropractor as soon as possible.
Myth #4: You Should "Push Through" Headaches With Pain Killers
Bad idea. There is no award for ignoring and covering-up problems. It is important to determine what is CAUSING the headaches and relying on painkillers like ibuprofen or aspirin can have serious negative consequences. Headaches are not the result of an aspirin deficiency! Schedule an appointment with a neurologically-based chiropractor to have your spine and nervous system evaluated for spinal subluxations.
