Dealing With Headaches and Migraines
Whether at the office, in school, or on the television, we seem to be surrounded by people suffering from headaches. Especially in Cherry Creek Headaches are one of the most common symptoms the public suffers from. Because it is so common, many people never seek help to get rid of their headaches. Those that do seek help are met with frustrating results of perfectly healthy test results or prescription drugs that often have annoying or even debilitating side effects. Rarely do people find a doctor who can find the cause of their problem, and fix it. In our Cherry Creek headache center, we have helped hundreds of people in the Cherry Creek area eliminate their headaches without the use of a pill. Through chiropractic care, we are able to find and fix the cause of the headache instead of masking the symptom.
Headaches negatively impact many people's lives. Some may need to take a break when they experience their headaches, which can interfere with work and home life. Some may need to take painkillers to mask the pain so they can continue on with their activities. Dark rooms, cool cloths, and painkillers only do one thing: temporarily relieve the problem. If you are not fixing the cause of your headache, you are only hiding the pain until the next headache comes on. Many people will take painkillers whenever they are experiencing a headache. If you take three painkillers every time you have a headache, and you experience a headache two times a week, that is six painkillers a week, twenty four a month, and two hundred and eighty eight a year! Over time, those painkillers can damage your kidneys and liver, even cause organ failure. This is why a natural, chiropractic approach is the best approach for headache relief. Not only do our Cherry Creek chiropractors avoid using harmful drugs, they also fix the problem permanently instead of patching up the migraine or headache pain temporarily.
Somewhat causes migraines?
It’s important to understand what actually causes migraines; the cause of migraines is very rarely understood. You see there are only a couple main causes of migraines and headaches. The 3 main causes of headaches and migraines: are circulatory related, muscular related, and nervous system related. If you evaluate those 3; things muscles, nerves and blood flow, just ask yourself which one of these is the most important system? ……because that should be the one to looking at first. Well you need muscles to move, you need blood and circulation to live, however the nervous system is the most important one, because it controls both the muscles and the blood flow. So what we have found that Chiropractic Center in Cherry Creek, CO, is that most the time migraines and headaches are nerve related. Meaning that if any type of nerves have been the damage in any way shape or form it can actually create circulatory-based migraine headaches, or muscular base migraines and headaches. That is why headaches are so random and debilitating, because the nerves can effect so many things, causing different types of headaches. So what causes damage to the nerves. Most people think it must be some type of serious injury, but that is not the case. Have you ever sat at a desk for more than 3 or 4 hours a day? Silly question I know, but what happens as you sit at a desk and stare a computer, your neck begins to grow in a different postion that in should be. Your normal curve begins to straighten. A body requires a normal curve for the nerves to work properly. You have little tiny holes between each bone where the nerve exits. We have found that repetitive motions like sitting for long hours at the desk, driving a car for extended hours, or whiplash injuries, repetitive strain motions and other sports or physical injuries, can change the way that the spine is structured.
Why do we have such great success with migraine relief and Headache treatments?
Our chiropractic doctors first run a full consultation and exam to find out what is causing your problem. As we mentioned before the nervous system is our focus, since we are looking for the cause of your problem. If we find there is some undetected nerve damage in your neck, it could be as simple as relieving that pinched nerve to get rid of the headaches permanently. Our brain controls our whole body, and to tell our body how to function, it relays messages through the nerves. This is why someone with migraines or headaches will notice, vision changes, or ringing in the ears, allergies, etc. Our Cherry Creek Headache treatment will allow the nerve to repair and get proper signals out to the rest of the body, which will then begin to repair itself.
There are some cases where the bones have been out of alignment for long enough that they have fused together and can no longer be adjusted to get the pressure off the nerve. This is why it is important for people to have their nerve health checked as soon as you start feeling any sort of symptoms such as headaches. A symptom is a sign that there is something wrong in the body, and to ignore those symptoms can lead to dangerous health problems. Many people will suffer from headaches or migraines and assume this to be a normal problem because it is common. No symptom is normal, no matter how common it may be.
