Are headaches ruining your quality of life? If you are like most people in Kennesaw, a headache can prevent you from being fully present and engaged at work, with family, or during your daily activities. Often times, however, the 'solution' that most people still turn to (Watch and wait, OTC drugs, or prescription medication) isn't correcting the cause of their problem, and as a result they are left to count the days, hours, or even minutes until the next episode.
Unfortunately, many people live their lives like this on a regular basis, and never bother to truly understand the cause. These is a cause for headaches that is often overlooked, and when addressed correctly, can result in much better outcomes.
What is this cause? It's called subluxation. This is a specific misalignment of the spine which causes interference along the spinal cord and nerves. Your Kennesaw Chiropractor can evaluate you for this.
In 1994, 26 patients with chronic headaches due to upper cervical joint dysfunction were treated using chiropractic. 24 reported a decrease in the severity & frequency of their headaches. Tension headache sufferers also experience a lessening of pain when treated with chiropractic, as recorded in a 1995 study in the Journal of Manipulation & Physical Therapy.
If you haven't had your spine evaluated by a Kennesaw Chiropractor, get yourself checked today!
