While the activities and stresses of modern life affect different people in vastly different ways, headaches are a common complaint.
Nearly one in 20 adults reports suffering a headache daily, or almost daily, and one in seven is affected by migraines. Worldwide, nearly one-half of women and more than one third of men periodically suffer from what is characterized as a tension headache.
Because headaches are so common, they are often ignored or simply attributed to stress, treated with a pill and forgotten. Headaches, however, do not have to be a way of life. If frequent or severe headaches threaten to affect the quality of your life, chiropractic treatment may bring relief in a gentle, non-invasive manner.
Chiropractic therapy is a holistic method of treatment that targets root causes of pain and calls upon the body’s own restorative powers to restore well-being. Headaches may result from pinched nerves or strained muscles, poor posture, sleeping on a pillow that offers improper back support, or many other things. We employ a number of diagnostic techniques to determine the source of the pain.
Headaches can even be the result of whiplash following an automobile accident or from other types of injury. Call today and schedule your Consultation! 203-288-7300
