…’’Yes I suffer with headaches but these are normal right?’’
I can hear this sort of comment at least once a week in my practice. No they are not normal. Headache is a symptom, and symptom is something our body creates in order to get our attention because something is wrong.
It might be caused by dehydration, stress, hunger, poor posture, head injury, jaw problems, sinusitis, stroke, carbon monoxide poisoning or even a cancer.
Most of you do not even know that poor posture or injury causes misalignment in the neck (called subluxation) which then can lead to cervicogenic headaches.
We all have heard of migraines, tension type headaches etc., but cervicogenic headache is a different story. It is the story about neck disorder or lesion.
Most of headaches are associated with neck pain and stiffness that is a scientific fact *, so it should be a no brainer to think that spine could have great influence in creating one.
Throughout my practice I have experienced many miraculous disappearances of the headaches after a course of chiropractic adjustments. Adjusting the spine removes the tension from the spinal cord, clears the nervous pathways and your body does the rest.
Read Matthew’s testimonial:
‘’I have been seeing Magda now for just over three months. When I first visited I was suffering with headaches through the right eye up to four times a day. My GP had prescribed some pain relief but provided little else. Magda explained the fundamentals on how the spine works in relation to the rest of the body and the corrections to my spine she was going to make through her treatment and I am pleased to say that after 12 sessions the headaches have largely become a thing of the past’’
It’s worth trying; even if your headache isn’t this type of headache your body will benefit from chiropractic care. Chiropractic works on so many different levels, because if affects your nervous system which is responsible for every cell, tissue and organ in your body.
If you are not sure and would like to ask me more questions please email me on [email protected], you can also call me on 07745421788.
Painkillers remove the symptoms, but we want to find the reason your body creates headaches and find the way to reduce them. Being in pain is not normal…at least not in my dictionary.
