Headaches are one of the most common ailments that chiropractors encounter in their practices. Fortunately, they are also one that chiropractors have been able to treat with a great deal of success. Depending on the type of headache a patient would be suffering from, the chiropractor would evaluate the patient, through their own individual techniques, to endeavor to find the root of the problem to determine the best treatment for their patient. Some of the different types of headaches are:
Tension headaches: One of the most common and recurring types of headaches.
Migraine headaches: 25-30 million people suffer from migraines... these headaches can be extremely pain-staking!
Cluster headaches: One of the most uncommon, suffered by a select few.
Unlike medical physicians, chiropractors use a holistic approach for their patients rather than the use of prescription medications, which cause an array of side-effects. Prescription medications are usually aimed at covering the symptoms rather than resolving the problem. Medical physicians also tend to offer surgeries as an option, which are often not the best avenue for a patient to take. Chiropractors go straight to the root of the problem.
Chiropractors offer treatments such as spinal manipulation, which has been proven to give their patients much improvement with tension headaches that stem from the neck. Many CEH (Cervicogenic headache) and tension headache sufferers have had remarkable success with chiropractic treatments, interestingly more so after a series of treatments than during the treatment process.
One other point to make is with our nutrition. For many ailments, nutrition can play a vital role in our healing, even with headaches. The main-stream medical professionals who downplay our nutritional needs have a great deal to learn when it comes to the assets of nutritional supplementation. Most chiropractors use supplementation to further the treatment of their patients for a long-lasting and enduring treatment that has had wonderful results for headache sufferers and the many other ailments that they treat.
All in all, if you suffer from headaches, finding the right chiropractor could be the best thing you've done. You will have some amazing results and you will wish you had made the appointment long ago.
