Headaches are one of the most common aliments affecting our community today. But just because they are common does not mean they are normal. Pain is not normal, it is your body's way of telling you that something is wrong. Although drugs may temporarily numb the pain, they are not taking care of the problem. We guarantee you that you do not have a headache due to a lack of Advil or Tylenol in your system.
There can be many different causes for headaches; lack of sleep, stress, diet etc, but one of the most common causes of headaches are misalignments in the cervical spine, (neck). Many of the activities that we perform on a daily basis such as working on a computer, driving our cars, playing with our kids, playing sports, puts a lot of stress and strain on the body. With this stress the spine can lose its normal structure and it can even cause visual changes in your posture. This shift puts a great deal of stress on your nervous system, causing muscle spasm, pain and headaches. Taking pain killers may give some temporary relief, but the headaches will keep coming back until the structure of the spine is returned to normal. If a thorough examination reveals reduced range of motion, loss of normal spinal curves or mechanical restrictions, the doctors at SpineCare will work with you to remove the spinal misalignment's and give you the relief you are looking for from your headaches.
