Dacula, GA Upper Cervical Chiropractors Help People Who Suffer From Headaches

If you are among the 45 million Americans who suffer headaches regularly, you are undoubtedly familiar with the traditional methods that people use to treat them, including taking some type of over the counter medication that is supposed to eliminate the pain and reduce any associated swelling. There are many other types of treatment that you may have attempted as well, including taking pharmaceutical concoctions designed to treat pain. However, none of these solutions provide permanent relief that addresses the problem at the core.
Woman With HeadacheIn the past few decades, there have been an increasing number of patients throughout the country that have begun to seek alternative forms of therapy for all types of conditions, including headaches. One form of treatment that is very promising for physical as well as other types of pain is upper cervical chiropractic.
This form of care has been used successfully for over a hundred years and has become a regular part of the American healthcare delivery system.
When a person goes to school to learn about upper cervical chiropractic, they begin by studying the human anatomy in great detail, just like other medical professionals. However, in addition to looking at how all of the parts work together physically, their training primarily revolves around the diagnosis and correction of upper cervical misalignments known as subluxations.
Theses upper cervical subluxations compress nerve tissue that affects organ function, soft tissue like muscle, ligaments and tendons and can eventually manifest as other health problems if not corrected.
Once the nerves are disrupted pain will result. While it usually manifests itself as physical pain, this is not always the case. In some instances, the person may experience difficulties with sleep or other routine habits.
On the first visit with an upper cervical chiropractor, a review of previous health issues will be completed, including x-rays to determine what types of nerve blockage may be occurring. At our office, we listen to our patients attentively and make an assessment, including determining what type of specific care will best suit the patient.
In the case of headaches, the patient usually has misalignments (subluxations) in the upper cervical spine. This may be accompanied by muscles that are unduly tight in the neck, shoulders and nearby areas. Pressure on the nerves may cause sharp stabbing pains or there may be a continual dull throb in the region.
At our office, we will assess the area and then move forward with correction known as a upper cervical chiropractic adjustment in order to relieve the pressure and pain.
However, upper cervical chiropractors don’t just focus on relieving symptoms but rather correcting the problem; therefore, additional upper cervical adjustments will follow to help correct the cause. In addition, the upper cervical chiropractor will take the time to educate you on the importance of upper cervical chiropractic care, especially if you’ve never been to one before.
If you need further help with your headaches or are ready to see how beneficial upper cervical chiropractic care can be to your overall health, please give us a call and schedule a free consultation with us.
