Nine out of 10 Americans suffer from headaches. Depending upon the severity of your condition, headaches can last for a few minutes, or several days. Proper care is needed to treat headaches, and prevent them from reoccurring. Several studies show spinal manipulation is an effective treatment method for a variety of conditions causing headaches to occur.
What Causes Headaches?
Headaches are caused by a variety of conditions from the foods you eat to muscle strain. Muscle tension in the neck is a leading cause of headaches and one area that we focus on treating. Today, the average American spends roughly close to 12 hours staring at computer screens, phone screens, and TV screens. Staring at digital screens for prolonged periods of time can lead to digital eye strain, which increases headache problems. In addition, sitting for prolonged periods of time in front of computer screens can cause muscle strain in the neck and shoulders, causing headaches.
Chiropractic Care for Headaches
If you find yourself suffering from headaches, contact Elevate Wellness Chiropractic. We identify the reason you are experiencing headaches, and treat it! We practice a natural approach to headache relief, preventing the need for medications to mask pain. We often find spinal bones in the neck and not aligned correctly, causing problems with muscles and joints in the neck. Patients often find they are unable to fully turn their neck as it feels stiff and sore. Having misalignment in the neck causes problems to the nerves, muscles, and blood supply. By aligning the vertebrae, we are able to restore motion and reduce headache pain.
