Headache PatientsJune 5, 2011 • By John Olsen
Of all of the different things that drive people into my office, one of my favorite things to work with is headaches. Most headaches that I see are directly related to the neck! Most primary care providers do not recognize this link, and typically prescribe a variety of drugs that range from anti-inflammatories to pain killers (sometimes narcotic) to antiseizure medication and sometimes antidepressant medication. Certainly there are instances where these products are needed. However, in most cases, reconditioning the neck with chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic exercises does the trick!
If you or someone you know suffers from headaches, it’s worth exploring the possibility of chiropractic. When compared to the risks associated with the above mentioned pharmaceutical products, chiropractic is exponentially safer. Again, some cases do not respond to chiropractic. An evaluation of your particular case will be necessary. Chances are that WE CAN HELP!
